First of all, the mochi itself is the sweet rice dough that encases ice cream which offers an addictive, chewy texture . There are *plenty* of flavors to choose from including mango, strawberry, green tea, and vanilla bean. My/Mo’s come in packs of six and can be found at major grocery stores like Costco, Whole Foods, and Safeway. Are you drooling yet? Do yourself a favor and pick up a box of mochi next time you’re browsing the freezer aisle!
