That’s it. I’m moving to Japan. I’m ready for delicious sweets, grilled meat on sticks, sushi, and all the mochi I can eat. Especially now that Lotte, a leading mochi manufacturer, is incorporating cookies and cream ice cream into these bite-sized nuggets of deliciousness.
For those of you who are unaware of mochi, they are a Japanese staple, and perhaps one of the most tasty summer treats you can find. Ice cream is wrapped with a sticky, gooey rice paper that's slightly savory to contrast with the sweet ice cream inside.
Mochi already blends multiple flavors, but once you introduce cookies and cream into the mix, it’s a textural explosion. Creamy, chewy, crunchy, gooey in a bite-sized package? I’d like a carton (hell, even a barrel), please!
