I have never actually KNOWN what mochi was until last week. I was at my grocery store and, lo and behold! "Japanese Style Green Tea Mochi- made in Taiwan".
I grabbed a box and tried it at home. It has the most delightful squishy texture- SO squishy and soft and pleasing to hold, a bit funny to eat but all in all a good experience.
I am a big fan of textures in food- I love chocolate with rice krispies in it, I am crazy about slippery noodles in pho soup ( sorry Krissy -lol!) and I love food in its own packages- ravioli, burritos, dumplings, spring rolls, perogies!
So there you go- Mochi- yum!
Now I want some molten chocolate cake...
