Enjoy the soft sweetness of Japanese springtime.

Nothing completes a spring picnic quite like a delicious dessert, so fortunately these sakura cherry blossom mochi rice cakes hit that exact sweet spot. In a decent sized bag that's perfect for sharing, these supple mochi are coated generously in a sugary kinako flour coating that soothes the delicate cherry blossom aroma that has been powdered and mixed into the mochi paste. This allows the flavour and fragrance to expand in your mouth, alongside the rich anko red bean filling for a genuinely immersive Japanese taste. Maintaining a practice that balances modern environmental concern with the dedication to authentic and nostalgic flavours through traditionally-inspired methods, Seiki brings you these delightful cherry blossom mochi to relax both body and soul.

Background

Mochi is a much-loved staple ingredient and rice dessert made both skillfully and sweetly to bring out some of Japan's most decadent flavours. By soaking glutinous rice overnight and masterfully hammering it into a thick paste, using a special long wooden hammer and pestle, each square or cube is ceremoniously prepared usually around new year and festivals to draw crowds and create a delicious spectacle. Known for its chewy and squishy texture mochi makes the perfect bitesize treat to enjoy your favourite dessert fillings and is surprisingly versatile in Japanese cooking, adding a stringy cheese-like texture to dishes like okonomiyaki and ozoni. Whatever your preference, check out our Mochi section at japancentre.com to find your favourite way of enjoying this sticky specialty.

Yummy but there is a lot of powder you kneed to shake off.

Mochi was a lot smaller than the picture and had no red bean paste filling (I dont know if that was said in the description of the product) It had arrived all squashed and heavily coated with rice flour, however it had a nice light taste which was okay but it could of had more flavor. It also had a light coconut smell to the flour. Overall I wouldn't recommend buying the product.
