Mochi Rice Cakes

auto deliver details are shown in a tooltip

Our mochi rice cakes are soft and silky, with a chewy texture. Traditionally made in a Japanese ceremony known as mochitsuki, these sweet rice cakes are now eaten year-round all over the world. Guaranteed fresh, our mini mochi is just like the kind served at gourmet frozen yogurt shops. Also known as Japanese rice cakes, mochi makes a sweet, chewy topping for frozen yogurt, ice cream, and cereal. However, we also love eating mochi candy straight out of the bag!

How Many Pieces of Mochi are in a Bag?

There are approximately 300 mochi rice cakes per one-pound bag.

What Does Mochi Candy Taste Like?

Made from sweetened glutinous rice, mochi has a slightly sweet taste. These original mochi rice cakes have no added flavoring, so you can truly appreciate the authentic mochi flavor.

How is Mochi Made?

In Japan, where mochi originates, the rice cakes are traditionally prepared during a ceremony called mochitsuki. To make the mochi, glutinous rice, a sweeter and stickier variety, is first soaked overnight and then cooked. The use of glutinous rice is an important element that gives mochi its trademark sticky texture and sweetness. After the rice is cooked, an old-fashioned wooden mallet and stone mortar are used to pound out the rice into a smooth, wet dough. Finally, the dough is shaped into round balls and dusted with cornstarch to prevent the Japanese rice cakes from sticking.

How to Eat Mochi

Mochi is commonly eaten by itself, with sweet condiments, or as a topping for ice cream, yogurt, desserts, and cereal. Daifuku (mochi stuffed with a sweet filling) is a traditional treat that’s popular in Japanese cultures today. Mochi is often served stuffed with sweet azuki bean paste, sweetened plum, or ground up peanuts. Two modern spins on traditional daifuku, mochi frozen yogurt (found at Pinkberry and Red Mango) and mochi ice cream have become increasingly popular in recent years.

Give these unique mini mochi balls a try and you won’t be disappointed. The soft chewiness coupled with the silky sweetness makes mochi candy a satisfying treat. It’s not surprising that this sweet rice cake is quickly gaining popularity all over the world!

How to Store Mochi

Mochi is best stored at room temperature and consumed within a few days of receiving it for optimal freshness. However, if you wish to keep it longer than a few days, you may store it in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes mochi rice cakes because they have less than half the sugar that many other sweet treats have. They’re also a great topping for frozen yogurt or whole grain cereal.

Japanese Tradition

This sweet rice cake is often eaten during Japanese New Year festivities. The Japanese believe that mochi symbolized the spirit of rice and that, by eating mochi, they will acquire the strength of the rice divinities. Japanese folklore attests that eating mochi brings warmth to the body and is good for those with anemia, blood-sugar imbalances, and weak intestines. Japanese culture also recommends mochi for those who easily get sick because mochi is thought to bring extra strength and stamina to the body through the rice divinities.

I'm not sure what I expected from these, maybe something inside, I've never eaten mochi without a stuffing. These are exceptionally delicate with a really nonsticky, mildly sweet taste. It's almost like a very refined jelly. But more substantial.
