The uniquely tasting, hard to describe, not hard not soft, feel weird in your mouth candies are back! And the surprisingly sweet taste of the red bean will entertain your mouth as it tries to decide exactly what a mocha ball is.

When I first got these I was so excited I bit into one right away with my older sister. The consistency was that of over-chewed gum...and it wasn't sweet at all like I had imagined. So determined on not giving up, I put the bag in the fridge and let them harden a little so they'd be more bearable. When I tried eating one again, I force fed 3/4ths of it (which isn't much considering the size) before throwing the rest away. It was just a let-down and disappointment, they remained in my fridge for weeks before I threw them away =/ I don't want to rid off rice cakes yet but this product was horrible. Maybe try a different brand?

What can I say about mochi? If you've never had it before you just have to try it at least 5 times to work how it tastes and feels through your senses. I really don't think we have anything that can be compared to it in the U.S so the above item description is about as good as your going to get. However, the red bean filling is not sweet at all. I had to bite it in half to make sure it really had filling in it. If you've never had something with red bean paste in it don't let this give you the wrong impression of it. This is not the best flavor they have. I've only other had the brown sugar which is sweeter and I intend to try all their flavors.

"Surprisingly sweet" is an overstatement; I find the beans to be hardly sweet at all, resulting in a ball which tastes exactly like it sounds: rice filled with beans. The mochi texture is nice, but there are better flavors here.

Can't much understand the nutritional carb info on the packaging, but these are AWESOME! I hope this item will remain available through this website!

Glad I could find foods I couldn't normally eat, but the shipping price is ridiculous so I won't be buying much. I wouldn't order online if there were a real Asian food store in my area.
