On my last few trips to Zion Market, I've been pretty efficient. Get in and get out. But then the other day, there was an ingredient I was looking for, and I thought perhaps Zion would have it. So I went to look for the ingredient, which meant I had to browse a bit to find it…which inevitably led me to slow down and explore the store. And of course I ended up with stuff I didn't need.
One of the things I picked up on my visit were these cute mochi balls in the freezer section! I love mochi and can never resist it. The bright colored little balls caught my eye. I was also surprised of the different flavors: including a pumpkin one!
The balls were nice and chewy. Inside, they are filled with red bean paste. I enjoyed them all except for the yellow pumpkin one. This was was hard rather than chewy. Not sure why.
