After being introduced to the ice cream novelty known as mochi earlier this year, we've been presented with the opportunity to try a few different brands and post our results. Our latest experience was with Mochidoki. Before we even broke into the box, we took a second to appreciate the packaging and take note of their slogan: imagination in every bite.
Mochidoki offers their products by flavor and collections. We were introduced to two collections -- the Taste of Thailand and the Tropical. The first carefully packaged box contained the Taste of Thailand. Each of these four flavors were carefully constructed around the Thailand theme and all bursting with flavor. My personal favorite was the Ginger Zing, but they were all bold in flavor and properly named.
The second was a collection called Tropical and focused around island fruit-filled ice creams. The Mandarin Orange Cream mochi was my personal favorite from this batch, had a nostalgic creamsicle feel, and was well constructed with proper high quality ingredients. The fresh, tart flavor of the Passionfruit variety ended up being the most explosive of them all, but every bite of each mochi was highly enjoyable. Eight total mochi pieces was just not enough! We will placing additional orders in the future in hopes of trying their entire lineup.
