Mochi Creme: Cute and Yummy Japanese Ice Cream

Being a desserts person, I always make sure to try new places offering sweet treats once in a while. And although I know sugar-loading is quite bad for both my health and my figure, I can't fight off the temptation when I saw a new desserts kiosk in SM Megamall -- Mochi Creme.
Mochi Creme Tip

If you're a sweets-loving person, you've probably heard of Dezâto and Mochiko, both of which are fast-growing brands in the Metro selling mochi ice cream like what Mochi Creme generously offers. However if you haven't yet, mochi ice cream is a Japanese confectionery made from glutinous rice pounded into paste, molded into circular shapes and filled with ice cream. And since I like almost anything Japanese (as you can infer from my nickname), it was just expected that Mochi Creme grabbed my attention.

Mochi Creme Flavors Mochi Creme Mochi Flavors

Located in SM Megamall's Building A near the cinema, Mochi Creme has a cute coral pink and lime colored kiosk with a nice attendant in red wig, which strongly reminded me of the Harajuku district in Tokyo. And although Mochi Creme is fairly new in the Metro, it already carries 8 lovely flavors of brightly-colored mochi ice cream. However, it was quite unfortunate that the Azuki Red Bean flavor which I wanted to try was out of stock that day.

There wasn't a reason to fret though 'cause Mochi Creme still has other flavors to choose from. First we had was Black Sesame (P65) for me and Purple Yam (P60) for the date.

Mochi Creme Black Sesame and Purple Yam

Upon taking the first bite of my Black Sesame mochi ice cream, I already fell in love with its soft and chewy texture. The mochi had a really nice consistency and was lightly dusted with cornstarch. The black sesame ice cream filling was also very creamy and nutty, and more importantly, had just the right amount of sweetness. The Purple Yam one on the other hand, also had a nice mochi coating. However, the purple yam ice cream filling was a little too sweet for my taste buds.

Mochi Creme Blue Vanilla

And since we can't get enough of Mochi Creme, the beau and I bought some when we spotted a stall in SM Mall of Asia. This time, we had Blue Vanilla (P65) and Green Tea (P65). Like the previous ones we've tried from SM Megamall, the mochi of these traditional Japanese treats are consistently good. I may not have eaten an authentic one yet, but I know when my mochi is too soggy, too hard, to thick or too thin.

Mochi Creme Green Tea

While the beau was enjoying his soft, sweet and creamy Blue Vanilla mochi ice cream, I was having a great time munching on my Green Tea choice. Unlike traditional green tea ice cream though, Mochi Creme's was a little less bitter, probably to cater to the majority's taste. However, it still tasted really good.

THE VERDICT

After trying out the mochi ice cream treats from Mochi Creme, it'll be an understatement to say I'll pay it a visit some time soon. With stalls conveniently located at the SM Malls I frequent, I see myself buying a piece or two whenever I'm in any of the three malls. Yes, every time. Some may argue that sixty bucks for a small Japanese ice cream dessert is as overpriced as Magnum. But although it's quite pricey for a little treat, it's worth a shot.

With a cute kiosk, adorable mascot, nice attendant and great mochi ice cream, I certainly know my eyes and my taste buds won't be able to resist Mochi Creme's charm.

  20. @Ness: Maybe that one you tried in Mercato was Mochiko? I've tried 2 from Mochiko but didn't like it as much. Give Mochi Creme a go sis, you just might like it.. :)

    @i♥pinkc00kies: Personally ah, Mochi Creme's better than Mochiko, and it' a few bucks cheaper pa.. ^^

    @gie: I haven't tried Mochi Poochi! Will definitely look for that.

    @Tin | The Average Jane: Haha.. Somehow sis, yes.. :D I think though mochi ice cream followed the popularity of froyo. Bubble teas and milk teas are still a fad here.

    @michymichymoo: I haven't heard of Mochi Kochi yet. Will definitely be looking for that! :D

  21. Cute nga! If ever I'll buy one, that would be because of the pink packaging. Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love this!!! They're so cute XD

    Though the price is a little expensive especially if you compare it to other desserts (like sundae etc.,)

  48. Mochi Creme is definitely a treat though it melts quickly (compared to other brands). So sad that I can't bring them home.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ive actually had this while i was in Manila last October. . i had the chocolate mochi. I was eating it while roaming around the mall, twas amazing. I wanted a second batch but we had to rush to the airport already. If i had my way, i couldve bought a dozen more. LOL!
