My aunt had come back from Japan with some goodies, one of them being Mochi. Now i haven't had mochi before.. maybe the vietnamese kind but nothing REAL from jap.
The wrapping & cover box were pretty, the box cover had a cartoon illustration, looks like an eatery house of some sort?
There were two flavours, red bean & green tea (both my fav icecream flavours as well woohoo!)
These were really fresh (they must've been, my aunt told me not to leave them for too long because they were still fresh). Really soft and a nice chewable texture, unfortunately i didn't LOVE them, not something i'd go out & purchase myself anytime soon.
Here are a few Mochi recipes i've found on the interwebs, but i don't think i have the patience to handle something so sticky!
