my second post today, but i think that i am on a roll for some reason : ).
in this post i will be talking about the first Japanese desert i clearly remember having for the first time
mochi is made out of this very sweet rice that is then pounded into rice doe. it is very very sticky and often stretches when u bite into it >__<! it also considered a cake or a bun. i considerate a cake so that i can not be confused with a bean paste bun (another delicious treat of Japanese creation). Mochi is usually filled with red bean paste. it is a very sweet bean that comes in a very dark red (well at least the end paste looks dark red). the bean itself is bright red.
i have only tastes one type of red bean paste from the mochi i get from this really nice Japanese food place down the street from my school i used to go there all the time but now i seem to be going less : (
the bean paste that i have tried (to the right of the image above) is really good in my opinion because i get to taste the bean skin but i heard that it is not as smooth as koshian.
Yes it is my dream do go over to japan and travel across the island in search for the perfect mochi!!!!!!
but thus, i am confined to this country of america ='(
Mochi also come in allot of really awesome flavors including:
Chocolate / Coconut
Chocolate / Espresso
Chocolate / Mint
Chocolate / Peanut Butter
Chocolate / Vanilla
Raspberry White Chocolate
Strawberry Dark Chocolate Chip
and wait! you can also top them of with sesame seeds or any other small seed you can imagine!
AWWWWWWWW THIS POST MADE ME HUNGrEY!!!!
don't be racist now it's actually a holiday. And NO! they don't have a holiday for the rest of the other colors i am sorry.
but they do have white day!
i wish america would further adapt themselves to this holiday but of course the world is not square like i want it to be.
apparently women needed an answer in japan to their valentines day chocolates so whit day is just that. men give presents usually white themed or in white box's to the women that they love. the cool thing about white day is that you have not curtsy chocolates >.< therefore if you didn't get a gift it's most likely that you are alone (like myself....... so alone in the world : (....)
i think it is such an adorable holiday for some odd reason. mostly due to the fact that i have no one to love what so every
