Mochi are one of those foods that before trying you have to tell yourself "this is something all new, so erase all expectations." (if you've ever had to go from drinking cow's milk to soy milk or other milk substitutes, you understand this...if you drink them expecting milk, you're horribly dissapointed, if you drink them expecting something vaguely milk like, you can appreciate it on it's own merit.)
I've tried all flavors of mochi carried by AFG with the exception of the mixed fruit (they never have it in!) and have found myself quite addicted to these little chewy puffs. they have a very dense chewy texture in the middle, rather like a gummy candy to some degree, surrounded by a very soft coating of pastry made of rice flour (which means that it has a very unusual texture which I can't even begin to find an analogy for in western versions of food.)
They are of a size you cf can pop a whole one in your mouth, but I like to slice or pull them apart in four or five pieees and enjoy them with tea or coffee or as a dessert after a meal.
If you chose to try them, keep in mind that it's the texture that most likely with catch you by surprise, the flavor of them is wonderful...so after that first one and your going "I dunno...." Try another, now that the texture is familiar you'll find yourself enjoying the flavor of them immensely.

I've never had Mochi and have always wanted to try it. I'm not a fan! It's a little mushy with an after taste. I'll pass them off to the kids who like anything sweet.
