As you may know, I’m obsessed with mochi. One of my favorite variations is ice cream mochi. I recently got these ice cream mochi from Trader Joe’s. I’ve bought ice cream mochi from Trader Joe’s before, but on my last trip I noticed a new brand of ice cream mochi.
The ice cream flavors are dairy free and come in mango, coconut and chocolate. What really caught my eye were the details of the mochi molds. Usually ice cream mochi is just a smooth layer of mochi skin on top. But these each had a intricate design on top.
Taste-wise, these were not my favorite. I prefer ice cream mochi that have a chewy outside layer, since mochi should be chewy. The layer on these ice cream mochi were not very chewy. I still think they are really pretty though.
