The most wonderful Asian treat that I have tasted to date. I hope I don't offend anyone by saying this, but I use to think Asians could not make a good dessert to save their lives, but I was ignorant and un-educated... I had NO idea these wonderful gewy treats even existed until I came across some pictures of mochi in a friend's photo album on facebook.
Thank you friend!
Thank you Facebook!
I purchased the above items at Trader Joes... WARNING!!!! AJ's does NOT have these... You have to go to Trader Joes. Hurry... or I will buy them all.
So, for those of you who have never heard of these... like myself only two days ago. They are a Japanese treat made of a sticky, sugary, rice paste. Since the initial treat was made, it has evolved into an ice cream ball covered in this wonderful rice concoction. Oh... and it is wonderful. Once I found them I broke them open and ate one, straight out of the grocery store freezer (after I purchased them of course). It was divine, but when I got home and they were partially melted I snatched another one and oh boy... even better.
So there ya have it... For my Iowa friends... I'm sorry that you do not have a Trader Joes, but for my Arizona friends, you must try these!!!
