My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream

Maybe it’s a bit weird to be discussing ice cream in November, but I am obsessed with these at any time of year.

This box is totally empty. I ate them all.

Mochi ice cream is a Japanese treat that I have been familiar with for many years.  It is a small portion of ice cream covered by mochi, which is a dough made from glutinous rice.  Though mochi itself is not sweet, it is part of many desserts, such as daifuku, which is mochi stuffed with a sweet filling, like red bean paste or strawberries.

But I’ve always had to look for these desserts at Asian import stores.  When I discovered that I was able to buy mochi ice cream from my local grocery store with the rest of my weekly supplies, my mind was blown!

The My/Mo brand of mochi ice cream has a bunch of different flavors available, available all over the country in stores like Target or Kroger.  It is not particularly cheap; at full price, they are about $1 per piece.  But they are amazing.

Actual view of my freezer.

Japanese desserts are never quite as super-sweet as American ones, and the flavors are unique.  I have tried the mango, green tea, double chocolate, strawberry, and chocolate sundae flavors and they were all good.  I did not enjoy the green tea flavor as much, because I do not like green tea.  But I felt obliged to try it because it is such a traditional Japanese flavor.

I am particularly obsessed with the strawberry flavor.  These are currently my favorite dessert!  They are also conveniently sized to be 110 calories per piece.  I love having them in the freezer so I can eat one in the evening for just a little something sweet.  Itadakimasu!

    I love this brand! I get it all the time at my local Aldi (they are a lot cheaper there than everywhere else). Just combine mochi with ice cream, and it’s awesome!
