mochi/ice cream balls

oakjoan | Dec 23, 2005 02:32 PM

Has anybody had this stuff? They were giving it out as free samples last month at Costco. Balls of ice cream (vanil, choc, strawb) covered with mochi.
I became instantly addicted to them. Amazing that the gummy, stretchy mochi covering when mixed with a bite of ice cream, is so spectacular.

I also bought some from TJ's in Emeryville - the same brand but these were vanilla, choc, and green tea.

Although I usually like green tea ice cream, this was sort of off tasting.

Why doesn't somebody open a stand selling this stuff!? Preferably at 20th and Broadway in Oakland.

Where have they been all my life?*
