Mochi is glutinous rice cake used a lot in Japan.  We were given these hand-made mochi stuffed with sweet fillings.  They were delicious!  I learned an important lesson with these though - don't just pop a whole one in your mouth, they are so sticky that they get lodged in your throat causing a momentary panic attack when you can't breath.  My advice: take small bites (and don't wear black, they are always covered in flour that gets everywhere no matter how careful you are).


  1. Sorry, but anything that is in part described as "glutinous" is not going in my mouth.


  2. Jake and I love the mochi with ice cream in the middle! I think it's definitely something you either love or hate...I think the texture throws some people!
