Mochiko Creative Japanese Desserts

Mochiko has offcially reached the shores of Davao City and I’m so glad they chose to have a counter at SM City Davao, which is roughly 10 minutes away from where I live. My sister and I tried it for the first time last week.A little history: The first Mochi Ice Cream I’ve ever tasted was from Mochi Creme and all the while I thought I’ve already tasted the best Mochi that ever existed on this planet (normal reaction for first timers, you get the deal), until I tasted Mochiko, that is.

Mochiko is popular for its innovative and creative choice of flavors that come in 15 flavors to choose from. I must say, I wanna try all of them! One thing I noticed is that, the outer covering (sticky sweet rice) is a tad chewier and softer than mochi creme. Which means, it does not turn too solid and you could easily bite to it without worrying about losing your teeth. Like Mochi Creme, they’re also not too sweet, although I like Mochiko better.

My sister got the Oreo Cookies variant which is made of Cookies and Cream ice cream and a half  piece of Oreo Cookies laid at the bottom, as seen on the photo above. Well, expect an explosion of chocolate and creamy goodness from this variant. I had a bite, of course, and I like it!

As for me, I tried their Cookie Dough variant which is made of Vanilla Ice Cream and a big chunk of Cookies at the bottom. I have no idea what type of cookies was it, but I like it. I love the combination of the sweet rice and vanilla ice cream, they go well together.

I was also able to try their Strawberry Yogurt variant the other day, which I unfortunately don’t have a photo as I devoured it right away. I love the fact that you can very well distinguish the yogurt in it, and that they used real strawberry bits (something like Baguio’s famous Strawberry Jam, but less sweeter) rather than artificial strawberry syrup. I would really be disappointed if that would’ve been the case.

The cookie dough is by far, my favorite out of the three variants I’ve tried. Desserts are my weakness and Mochiko immediately went to my favorites’ list.
