Mochi

My daughter keeps raving about these little dough covered balls of ice cream her boyfriend introduced her too. She gets them at her local Harris Teeter.
She is always talking about weird and different foods she tries so I didn’t pay it much mind. 

When she was home this past weekend, we took a trip to Harris Teeter. This being the highest price grocery store in town, we do not visit it much, but they had an item I wanted that no one else has. They also had the ice cream things shes been talking about and she urged us to get a box to try. 

Looking in the freezer section, I seen several flavors of what is called “Mochi”. I chose the salted caramel flavor.


These are are a Japanese made dessert and they are exactly as she described. Little dough balls with ice cream inside. I sorta of snarled my nose but thought, “why not” I mean they are ONLY like $6.00 a box!”.
But I had to try it. I mean, They looked fun! 


There are six in a box and each one is about the size of a ping pong ball. 


She and my husband watched me intensly as I bit into what felt like a ball of playdough. They waited on a response. With powdered lips and a full mouth, I said “Hold on, I'm a little confused right now”. 
I took another bite. “Not too bad”. 


I refused to share my Mochi and told them to get their own to try. I think I liked it. It was different.
With only 110 calories, it made the perfect snack that satisfied my sweet tooth for the evening. 

I would like to try the other flavors if I come across a coupon. But for now, I’ll stick to my ice cream in a cone and my “mochi” from Nick. 

Have you ever tried anything like this?

  1. There are lots of ice cream choices in that calorie range, but these look weird in a good way and if I find them, I might try just to see.

  2. Nope- Never tried anything like that. It looks kind of like cookie dough to me and I might not like it. I don't like anything that tastes "doughy". You can enjoy my share for me. xo Diana

  3. Never tried it, probably won't, I am not much on sweets. But I could have bought one of 45 cent milkshakes (Now about $4) at Tony's and had change left over. hahahahahaha Yeah when we started eating at Tony's the shakes were 35 or 45 cents. I always loved to see them make the shake then put that large scoop of icecream in that Butter Pecan shake. But the little balls are cute! LOL

    1. These are not real sweet but I’d suggest a butter pecan milkshake over these things anyday!

  4. Hmmm with only 18g total carbs that would work as a snack for me, it does sound really good, that is as you mentioned if you come across a coupon...

    2. You should try it! Breyers is the best! Herseys comes in a close second!

  5. I've never heard of either that ice cream or that store!! My favorite ice cream since I was a kid has always been chocolate chip mint.....the one from Baskin Robbins was amazing, but there are tons of others that I love also....sigh not the best for my waistline at this age, so I tend to stay away from ice cream for the most part.

  6. And I was taught not to play with my food. 😊
    No, I've never heard of these before. There isn't a Harris Teeter around here by me but there was one where we used to live. Like you we didn't go there often because it was pricey.
