Mochi Rice Cakes
Mochi rice cakes are a light, 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.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top PickOur Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes mochi rice cakes because they have less than half the sugar compared to many other sweet treats. They're also a great topping for frozen yogurt or whole grain cereal.
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.

“Love my Mochi! Kids love these in place of fruit snacks too.
Heather, Platteville, WI January 26, 2012
“We absolutely love your mochi rice cakes (especially my two-year-old) and just had to order more. The black sesame mochi we tried this time is just as amazing. The raw almonds are almost creamy, which is weird because you don't think of nuts as anything but crunchy. And I love how the organic mango actually tastes like mango, instead of being overwhelmingly sweet. Everything is amazing, and we can't wait to try the chia seeds sample - thank you!”

“Wow! Ordered candied ginger and mochi rice cakes (yum) on Saturday and had my stuff, plus a nice sampler of figs on Monday! How did they get it to me so fast?? Now I'll be able to make my ginger cookies for my party next Saturday! Thanks you nutty people! :-)”

“LOVE THESE! I have had Mochi with ice cream in it when out to eat but never like this. so cute... my daughter thought they were little marshmallows. She has been asking for fruit snacks (we all know they aren't really fruit snacks) since my friend gave her a pack of scooby-doos last week and I of course having never given them to her was devastated... she asks for fruit snacks every day. I ordered the Mochi and dried strawberries. She has eaten them twice and I am hoping that tonight when I go home not a word is mentioned of the "Fruit Snacks" but that she will ask for her rice cakes and berries. Thank you!”

“I am thoroughly wowed, yet again. I placed my order yesterday afternoon and when I got home from work today, there it was, waiting for me. :o)
I love the Mochi Rice Cakes - they are absolutely delicious. The throwback candies are great, too - I bought the Bit-O-Honey candies, which I hadn't even seen in a store in years - how wonderful to find it here! I have to say - it was the first thing I opened. I'm chewing on one right now.
I recommend NutsOnline to everyone. Great prices, fast shipping, and FRESH products! There really is no other retailer online that even comes close to comparing to NutsOnline.”
Beth, Lincoln, CA October 27, 2011
“I am so happy with the raw cacao nibs. So many others were bitter or fermented, but Nuts Online's are fresh and pure tasting! I also love the mochi rice cakes. They are fresh and soft. Thanks so much!”
