I’m not much of a dessert eater, I like to stick to savoury stuff but every once in a while, I find a dessert that’s irresistible to me.
Baby Jellies fall into that category and now, so does Little Moons Mochi.
I’m not a connoisseur of Japanese foods so mochi is new to me but it’s been around for some time. It’s basically a Japanese rice cake made with short-grain japonica glutinous rice. The rice is pounded into paste and then moulded into the desired shape. So mochi ice cream is Japanese mochi with an ice cream filling.
But Little Moons has given mochi ice cream a modern twist. With flavours including Himalayan Salted Caramel, Vegan Belgian Chocolate, Sumatran Coconut, Alphonso Mango, Uji Matcha Green Tea, Summer Strawberries and Cream, Madagascan Vanilla, Honey Roasted Pistachio, Vegan Tropical Passionfruit and Mango, Yuzu Lemon, Summer Raspberry, and Italian Roasted Hazlenut.
Let’s just say there’s something for everyone and the flavours seem to be growing.
It’s a novelty way to enjoy desserts, and it’s guilt-free – we’re talking as little as 67kcal per mochi. Making it a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth compared to other desserts.
Little Moons is also introducing a limited edition, world’s first mochi advent calendar. It contains 24 mochi filled with flavours, including Vegan Tropical, Vegan Choc, Pistachio & Coconut. The Little Moons advent calendar is available to buy from Sunday 1st November.
Little Moons Mochi is available in supermarkets nationwide including Tesco, Ocado, Waitrose, and Wholefoods. They are also available from Little Moons own pop-ups in Westfield, Bond Street, and Selfridges.
