Wegmans Mochi Ice Cream is Dream!
Remember the first time you ever tried mochi? For me, it was in the aisles of my local Wegmans grocery store.
Creamy-cold ice cream encased in a sweet mochi dough makes the perfect hand-held treat. For as low as $4.99 you can get 6 mochi ice cream in a pack. Currently, it appears that the mochi coolers in wegmans are filled with these bulk cases. However, as many of us remember, these mochi balls used to be sold individually at Wegmans, and you could self-serve the mochi treats from an assortment of delicious flavors. Eating mochi is a fun experience, especially for many Americans who are foreign to the idea of holding ice cream!
Wegmans grocery stores introduced mochi ice cream to their shelves in 2017, allowing the general public into the world of these unique Japanese sweets. Wegmans grocery stores can be found mainly in North-eastern U.S. states such as New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Massachusetts. Mochi ice cream is known as daifuku. The mochi casing surrounding the ice cream is made by making race into a flour for the dough. While mochi itself is a Japanese sweet, mochi ice cream is rumored to have been created in the 1980’s in a Japanese-American bakery in Los Angeles.
Following in Wegman’s footsteps, other grocery stores such as Trader Joes, Whole Foods, and other grocery stores throughout the U.S. have begun stocking their freezers with this dessert. Wegmans alone carries many different brands of mochi ice cream, such as the popular brand My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream, Royal Family Mochi, and Bubbies Mochi.
