Fro-yo girl here. Mochicream, a new kiosk inside Mitsuwa features gourmet mochi shipped from Japan. These chilled mochis are filled and come in 24 flavors, from traditional (black sesame, red bean, green tea, sakura) to creative kinds (caramel pudding, caramel macchiato, apple pie, honey cranberry, rum raisin). The price ranged from $1.80 to $2.30 each.
Small but plump, the mochi are individually wrapped in a plain sheet of clear plastic. They’re meant to be eaten 10 - 15 minutes after you purchase them (the sign said to be consumed on the day of purchase). These aren’t ice cream mochi. They’re more closely related to the fresh or refrigerated bean filled mochi that you can find at your local Japanese grocery store.
They had two yogurt/yoghurt flavors.
* Blueberry yoghurt ($1.90): A sweet, smooth bean filling that’s flavored with a hint of blueberry, surrounding a center of a light, slightly tangy whipped yogurt cream. The thin glutinous rice shell is tender and chewy.
* Peach yoghurt ($1.90): Similar to the blueberry yoghurt only with a peach flavored bean filling. The peach had a more perfume like flavor than the blueberry, pleasant and subtle.
You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
