Mochi Sweets: Japanese Luxury Sweets

For decades, my family has been a huge fan of Mochi, a Japanese rice cake made from glutinous rice with fillings at the center.   Whenever our relatives and friends would go abroad, they would often bring home Mochi for us as "pasalubong".  We've bought some of the Mochi brands here as well from Chinese, Korean and Japanese grocery stores but the brands vary as well as their availability.  

So, we were so glad when we saw Mochi Sweets at SM Mall of Asia.  I've encounter them before at the The 2nd Rockwell Ultimate Taste Test but I was too full and lacking in time to appreciate its taste.

Mochi Sweets opened its first store in Shanghai and has now expanded to over 250 stores in the Philippines, China, Malayasia, Singapore and Vietnam.   According to their staff, Mochi Sweets sold ere are imported from Hongkong. Thus, they offer it in its frozen state and must be thawed from 15 to 20 minutes before eating.

The Mochi Sweets are well protected and in their freshest quality because of their decent packaging.

The mochi coating is pillow soft, mildly chewy and slightly moist in every bite. It's perfect in form and thickness too.  Each variant is delicious in its own way.  It just depends on your preference.  The mochi contains paste, cream or mousse.  You can call me traditional but I like the paste form the most.  What I like most about the Mochi Sweets brand is that they are very consistent in offering their mochi with superb blend of flavors especially the right amount of sweetness.

 My favorite is the Sakura or cherry.  I love the contrast of the sweet and tanginess in it. 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Mochi Sweets will surely win the hearts of many with their consistent and superb quality and yet, being marketed at the same price range as those locally produced.  We just couldn't stop ourselves from buying them as often as we could.  

How about you?  What's you favorite flavor?
