Green Tea Mochi
Where’s the Mochi, Trader Joe’s?! If you had asked us this question a month ago (and you did ask us a month ago, and the month before that, and the month before that…), we would have said, “Coming soon, Dear Customer— coming soon.” But if you ask us this question now, well, you might just get a different answer. Scratch that—you will get a different answer.
So, go ahead, ask us! Because we’re just dying to shout… CLASSIC MOCHI IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER AT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TRADER JOE’S!
When we say “better than ever,” we’re not kidding. With delightfully chewy rice-dough exteriors and high butterfat ice-cream interiors, Trader Joe’s Mochi are the cream of the crop, literally and figuratively. They’re being made for us by a new supplier (a much-loved national mochi-maker), and this time, the Mochi are being produced under our private label.
What does this mean, you ask? This means that, by definition, these Mochi are free from certain undesirable ingredients you’d find in most mass-produced mochi, such as high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, and synthetic colors.
Instead, Trader Joe’s Mochi are sweetened with cane sugar, flavored with natural flavors, and colored with naturally available ingredients. (Our Green Tea Mochi, for example—which just so happens to be the first flavor back on the freezer scene—is flavored with real green tea leaf powder and colored with turmeric extract & spirulina.)
Also by definition, these magnificent, mouthwatering, small-but-mighty Mochi are a terrific value—we’re selling each 6.8-ounce box of six kosher-certified, gluten-free Trader Joe’s Mochi for $4.49. Find them in our freezers.
