Mochi is nice, at least the good ones. The too cheap ones from the supermarket do not have strong enough taste :-(

My aunt used to buy massive amounts of taiyaki. She never ate them for some reason and stored them in the freezer. Since I hate to see perfectly good food go to waste, I tried my best to eat them. There was always at least 2 or 3 packs of taiyaki in the freezer, each pack containing 8 pieces. I told her to stop buying them if she wasn't going to eat them but she would just say that she would eat them.

Anyway, after like 2 years of doing this, I am sick of azuki forever. That sickly sweet flavor, a sweetness that smothers and overwhelms....that unmistakable taste. I'll probably kill someone or go crazy if I ever eat another red bean again. And, to this day, she keeps buying taiyaki. The old stuff gets composted in the garden, the new stuff takes the newly available space. I do not understand. Red beans are the devil's seed.


Hahaha, reminds me of my late grandmother who would buy too much dorayaki, but since my family were big eaters, we'd be able to eat it all. I know how you feel though, I got sick of azuki at one point too and would just eat the pancake part. Actually, I'm still not that fond of it, but I enjoy dorayaki or daifuku every now and then for the childhood nostalgia. I'm like "ah, this is the taste."


I like mochi but being Chinese, I also had a damn lot of red beans when I was younger. I can't stand it anymore. I thought azuki would be a little better when I first tried daifuku but nope. Trader Joe's ice cream mochi are delicious though.

You should try dango if you haven't. They're like mochi but they have stuff on top of them instead of inside. I don't like anko but mitarashi tho. yum.

So I just totally did the mochi thing with a couple of the chocolate ice cream ones. After reading the first part of this thread I found out through the Wikipedia article that Trader Joe's carries that mochi brand in the picture, and there's one right down the street from me! A friend who I was hanging out with who likes anime too and I went and got some. They only had the chocolate, green tea and mango ones left, so I grabbed one of all three while she grabbed two chocolate ones. She's never had it before and wasn't sure if she'd like the other flavors. I know that I will though, as I like green tea and mango flavors. I had ice cream mochi over a year ago at a local Japanese restaurant and liked it, they had three flavors, strawberry, green tea and vanilla, and I've had strawberry daifuku that I bought at the local anime convention last Fall and liked that too. Was sad that my Trader Joe's was out of the strawberry mochi ice cream as I love strawberry stuff.

Mochi is one of those foods that I ate so much as a kid that now it makes me sick if I try to eat it.

Every time I've been someplace I could buy Mochi, the only kind they had was green tea. I just can't do green tea ice cream.
