We had a taste of this rice cake-covered ice cream for the first time last Tuesday when we bought some at its Megamall-based kiosk.
Got them in 3 flavors: purple yam, green tea & black sesame.
MOCHI CREME is a round, dessert ball made of a soft pounded sticky rice cake (mochi) with an ice cream filling & then dusted with powdered sugar. This Japanese confection was originally created by Lotte, as Yukimi Daifuku in 1981, the company first made the product by using a rice starch instead of sticky rice and a type of rice milk instead of real ice cream.
It's a delicious treat for ice cream/sticky rice cake lovers. Price/piece ranges from 60 to 70 pesos depending on the flavor. A little steep for such a small piece. In fact, it is more expensive than the latest premium brand of ice cream bar. Well, if you just want to experience the taste, go for it. You can always go back to M when that cold, sweet craving comes around... ;)
