Individually wrapped, this assorted share pack contains a random selection of sweet mochi bites each flavoured with 3 of Japan's traditional dessert fillings, from thick red bean paste in a rich matcha or chunky red bean mochi coating, to a smooth milk custard in sticky gelatine and glutinous mochi layers. Produced in Taiwan.

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.

Nice selection with a good texture. Hard to pick a favourite, but green tea probably wins.
