Mochi Ice Cream

When the weather gets as hot as it's been recently, I like to cool off with a refreshing ice cream treat. I've been eating some form of ice cream at least once a day for the past couple weeks. Big Sticks, frozen yogurt bars, ice cream sandwiches, gelato — you name it, I've been eating it. One ice cream treat I hadn't eaten in a long time is mochi ice cream. Mochi is a Japanese treat made of glutinous rice. Mochi ice cream is basically ice cream wrapped in a mochi covering. Delicious!

A few days ago my parents had a craving for mochi ice cream. We stopped at the market to buy 20 lbs. of rice ('cause I was all out), and then we swung by the frozen section to pick up two boxes of mochi ice cream, made by Mikawaya.

This particular brand of mochi ice cream comes in seven different flavors — chocolate, green tea, kona coffee, mango, red bean, strawberry and vanilla. My favorites are strawberry and mango. Each mochi ice cream ball is about 1¾" across, making a decent serving size. It might seem small, but since it's made out of sticky rice, one piece sates my appetite just fine.

I haven't tried the coffee ones. I'm not a coffee fan. The taste doesn't appeal to me at all. =\

Thanks, dude. :) Glad you like the pics.
