Have You Tried This Sweet Treat

Take Me To Post Comment Form

If you are an adventurous eater, especially when it comes to sweeter fare, you may have heard of this delectable snack called “mochi.” If you haven’t heard of it, then this piece will give you the proper introduction to the delicious trend that will make other dessert staples like pie, cakes, squares and cookies seem positively boring in comparison.

What is it?

A lot of popular desserts like pies, tarts, and cakes use wheat flour as their major “dry” ingredient, which makes the crusts of pies and tarts flaky and the crumbs of cakes dense. Mochi is a sweet dough made of a rice flour from short-grain glutinous rice (also known as sticky rice) instead of using wheat flour. The dough is not made to be eaten on its own; instead it’s wrapped around a variety of delightful fillings.

What really sets this food a part is its texture, which many people have a hard time describing. Mochi is sometimes called gooey, bouncy, sticky, and soft. Mochi can also be called gelatinous, even though it hardly resembles a wiggly and gelatinous product like Jello. Some people refer to this mysterious mouth-feel as Q or QQ which means the food has a springy, rubbery but pleasing texture. It seems impossible to fully describe the combination of sticky, soft, springy and chewy mouth-feel that mochi has — it would be easiest to eat some to find out for yourself.

Where to start?

If you don’t know where to start with mochi, you should begin with the snack’s best pairing: ice cream. The treat is a little ball that fits into the palm of your hand and is small enough to be finished in a few bites. The mochi is wrapped around a smooth sphere of ice cream and rolled in powdery flour to make sure it doesn’t melt all over your fingers. To find out more about the dessert visit Mymomochi.com and see all of the wonderful flavors that range from classic to truly unique. You can have the vanilla mochi ice cream if you don’t want to stray too far from your comfort zone or the green tea if you feel like running as far out of your comfort zone as possible.

A Growing Trend

Mochi is a trendd that keeps gaining more converts because it offers so many delicious possibilities — surely, you’ll fall in love with one of the many options. With the variety of mochi forms and all the incredible flavors packed inside, this treat is already on its way to becoming a fundamental part of food culture. So, if you’re an adventurous eater or at least someone who is willing to step out of their comfort zone for a piece of dessert, you should get your hands on some mochi and take a bite. You might want to hurry because the trend is growing fast and foodies will be scrambling for a taste.
