I hope you’re sitting down while reading this, just so you can immediately get back up and rush out to Whole Foods.

If they don't have one already, your local Whole Foods Market may be getting a self-serve mochi ice cream station soon. We went to investigate, and yep, it was as satisfying as we imagined it would be.

If you aren’t familiar with mochi, it is a traditional Japanese sweet rice cake that can be molded with ice cream, or other fillings to create a bite sized, sweet dessert.

At any given time, Whole Foods will have at least a dozen flavors for you to go absolutely HAM over. This includes the classic vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, green tea, plus an indulgent raspberry white chocolate, sakura, mango, and much much more to drool over.

At this time, there are only a handful of self-serve mochi bars in Southern California, Las Vegas, Wheaton, IL and their flagship store in Austin, Texas.

Priced at $2 per mochi, or $20 for a baker’s dozen, you can take your ice cream obsession as far as you’re willing to go! Just try your hardest not to sample all the flavors and put them back half eaten. Don’t be that guy.
