Chocolate Mochi

Picked up a few pieces of Fugetsu-do's chocolate mochi at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Monterey Park. They are about the size of a silver dollar pancake. The mochi is almost the color of milk chocolate with a dusting of corn starch. The mochi is pillowy soft and has a nice chew to it. It has a subtle yet distinctive chocolate flavor.

The surprise is when you get to the middle of the mochi where there is a soft, fudge like chocolate center. It reminds me of the dobash at King's Hawaiian Bakery.

Don't know how long the chocolate mochi has been around, but the next time I'm in J town, I'll be sure to pick some more up
