Do You Mochi?

Do you Mochi? I learned of these ice creamy delicacies, just 2 years ago while having Sushi in Mawah, NJ with a co-worker. I have been smitten ever since. Often times the craving for these ice cream balls, robed in a chewy, rice dough greatness, just hits me over the head unexpectedly. They are available in a variety of flavors such as strawberry (personal fave, happen to be eating as I post this), chocolate, green tea and plain.

They are so unusual in that they are ice cream that you chew and they are not too terribly sweet. Tiny cubed squares of plain, mochi rice dough (outer part of the mochi ball) are finding their way onto topping bars at frozen yogurt shops nation wide. Next time you are at Pink Berry and you see the topping called "mochi" give it a topping test drive.

Just in case you do not have a Japanese restaurant or international market close by, you can get a fix of Mochi at Trader Joe's.
