Green Tea Mochi
Green tea Mochi rice cakes are a light,green tea flavored sweet Japanese dessert treat. With a soft, silky, and chewy texture, these delectable rice cakes will disappear before you know it. Our Mochi is similar to the Mochi used in frozen yogurt shops like PinkBerry, Red Mango, and Yogen Fruz.
In Japan, where mochi originates, the rice cakes are traditionally prepared during a ceremony called mochi-tsuki. To make the mochi, glutinous rice, a sweeter and stickier variety, is first soaked overnight and then cooked. The use of glutinous rice is an important element that gives mochi its trademark sticky texture and sweetness. After the rice is cooked, an old-fashioned wooden mallet and stone mortar are used to pound out the rice into a smooth, wet dough. Finally, the dough is shaped into round balls and dusted with cornstarch.
Mochi is commonly eaten by itself, with sweet condiments, or as a topping for ice cream, yogurt, desserts, and cereal. Daifuku (mochi stuffed with a sweet filling) is a traditional treat that’s popular in Japanese cultures today. Mochi is often served stuffed with sweet azuki bean paste, sweetened plum, or ground up peanuts. Two modern spins on traditional daifuku, mochi frozen yogurt and mochi ice cream have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Give this unique treat a try and you won’t be disappointed! The soft chewiness coupled with the silky sweetness makes mochi a satisfying treat. It’s not surprising that this sweet rice cake is quickly gaining popularity around the country!
We recommend that you keep mochi refrigerated to preserve its freshness.
Historical ReferenceThis sweet rice cake is often eaten during Japanese New Year festivities. The Japanese believe that mochi symbolized the spirit of rice and that, by eating mochi, they will acquire the strength of the rice divinities.
2. Japanese culture also recommends mochi for those who easily get sick because mochi is thought to bring extra strength and stamina to the body through the rice divinities.

“All I can say is, "WOW!" right now. I was so surprised of how incredible the mochis are. I've had mochi before, but never this soft and fresh. We tried the sample dried stawberries too. Amazing! They remind me of my sister Shari's priceless homemade jam. I am so impressed by your products that I know I will continue to order from you. Thank you so much for great service and addictingly, savory fruit and mochi.”

“Oh my word.... I just received my first shipment of goodies. I am very impressed! The green tea mochi, organic chia energy squares, organic raw cocao goji energy squares, and the NY espresso mix coffee beans are wonderful. I have yet to use the chia seeds. I was even blessed with a surprise free sample pkg of goji berries. This company ROCKS. I will definitely reorder and spread the news of the great products that this company offers. Got to run...have to go hide the candy coated espresso beans from my daughter so I can have some too. She loves them! :D”

“The stocking stuffers I ordered for Christmas ended up in dollar store containers because I had to taste everything! I placed a second order that arrived on the 3rd day-unbelievable. Sweet, salty, spicy and chocolatey; every item I have tried (and gifted) has been delicious. And can I just say that the samples included are huge? Huge! Try the mochi-fun to throw and catch in your mouth. Fun to throw at eager dog/kid/coworker faces ;)”

“I know mochi, and this mochi is DELICIOUS. I'm Taiwanese. We eat mochi all the time, and I've been to Japan. Good mochi is soft, but chewy. This mochi is exactly that. The description says it is like the little mochi they serve in yogurt shops. It's only similar in size. Yogurt shop mochi is usually old--it's a bit tough and too chewy. This is fantastic. The green tea flavor could be more prominent, but it is that real green tea/matcha flavor. I am so happy with this purchase. Everything I've purchased from nuts.com is such high quality, I can be confident when buying random stuff (like kale chips last time, and mochi this time) that whatever I buy will be good.”
