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.

“These delicious mochi are just like the ones at Pinkberry (only fresher) and are approximately 1/4 the price of the little cups of add ons you can buy.
They go great with the big cartons of Pinkberry pomegranate takeout.
THANK YOU NUTS ONLINE!”

“Your pistachios have more flavor than any store bought brand I have ever had. Almost like they have a slight smoked flavor. And the meats were larger too. Great job! And your mochi rice cakes were so soft and oh so good.”

“Super fast delivery with a thank you surprise inside! Too good to be true. Most importantly, you met the high expectations of an impatient 4-year-old who loves Mochi and was counting the minutes for its arrival. She's happy, so we are extra happy! Thanks Nutsonline!”

“LOVE LOVE LOVE these! My kids can't put the bags down. We ordered the black sesame, rainbow and white mochi. I have to order more of them to meet demand!”

“My twin toddlers love the mochi balls. Everytime I buy the frozen yogurt I would buy a separate cup of mochi balls for them. Now I'm so glad I can keep a bulk in stock at my house for my girls. They taste just like the kind they have at the yogurt shop. My girls are happy and so is their mommy! Thanks Nuts Online for having the opportunity to purchase these yummy treats!”

“I just received my Mochi Rice Cakes and have already dug in! Great service, quick delivery and absolutely delicious. I am so glad to have found someone that carries exactly what I was looking for. Yay for Nuts Online!”
Jonathan G, West Hartford, CT November 10, 2010
“Wow. I was blown away. The order I placed on Friday afternoon was on my doorstep on SATURDAY morning. Even after all of your confirmations said it would take one business day.
And the products -- all great. My kids are huge fans of the mochi and dried fruits and I think the nuts and trail mixes are great. All this and the prices are far lower for comparable products at my organic grocery store.
Thanks for the service -- I will be back soon, and frequently. You have a business you should be proud of.
