Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day! It was a day filled with delicious food, my Valentine, and a wonderful time. “G” and I went out to a delicious Mediterranean restaurant which I’ll post tomorrow so come back and check it out.
I’m pretty sure lots of people had enough chocolates so I want to share a non – chocolate yummy Japanese treat, Maeda-en Mango Mochi.
Maeda-en Mango Mochi Sherbet Bon Bons is the first time I’ve tried it. It’s a tradition for “G” and I go get a box after we have dinner at the food counts inside Mitsuwa. After a warm dinner which is either udon or curry, it’s perfect to cool down by treating ourselves to cold sweet mochi,
As we made our way down to the freezer isle in Mitsuwa, we glanced through the available flavors and noticed that we’ve never tried the mango mochi. We thought we’d give it a try and I couldn’t wait to try it since I love the real mango. It was pretty tasty but I thought the mochi dough was not as soft as the other flavors. The Maeda-en Mango Mochi ice cream in the center has a tangy taste which is why it’s sherbet.
So far I think this was my least favorite and my top choice for mochi flavor would be green tea, vanilla, and strawberry for now. I still need to try the other flavors and that’ll be my next mochi adventure!
