The Green Mochi

Tuesday, April, 14, 2010.......


Ever bite into a piece of food that makes you lick your lips and declare THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER EATEN? Well....the Green Mochi IS NOT IT for me.

Saturday night, hubby and I were invited to a friend's house for dinner. She was trying out some new recipes, mostly Indian, but with an East Asian dessert -- the MOCHI...

First the first moment I picked up the little green ball I knew I was in for it. I couldn't place my finger on it, but the texture was something I was familiar with. Then I bit into it. The center was filled with dark green stuff -- like puss, but darker (the consistency was the same).

Other dinner guests also weren't loving the Mochi. We discovered we could kind of play with it by stretching it out like Play Doh; the Mochi took on a life of its own.

The one thing that kept nagging me was the outside texture of this snot ball...then....it finally hit me...it felt like Slime, the stuff you got as a kid in the vending machine. Yup. it did.

I apologize to any people who are huge fans of the Mochi. It's just not my thing.

You make it sound so attractive. I don't think it'll make my list of "must tries" anytime soon.

Jane said...

Ew... Yeah... I don't think I'll be trying that anytime soon, unless I start feeling unusually masochistic.

Adrienne said...

ewwweee thank just sounds nasto

TechnoBabe said...

Never heard of it, and definitely will not be trying it. Ever.

lol. Your descriptions are hilarious!! I've tried it & it kinda tastes like eating a balloon. A very gross filled balloon. Not my cup of tea either!!

Jennifer said...

Wow... That sounds... Repulsive, to say the least. I am glad I have not encountered the Mochi yet.

Brian Miller said...

LMB, thanks for the tip, I'm always up for trying new things, but this is certainly not one of them!!!!! YUCK!

Heckety said...

I always thought it was shell fish, but it can't be if its dessert...I'll have to look it up...so's I can avoid it. You do make it sound soooo appetising!!!

Stereos and Souffles said...

WTH is that!? If I wanted to eat a booger I'd pick my nose.

Secretia said...

That looks and sounds dusgusting. I would never eat anything I didn't like, even to be polite.

Katie J said...

Those look different then the Mochi I have tried. I get mine at Trader Joe's and the Mango is the best flavor. I like the green tea one but the chocolate and strawberry ones are just okay.

I admit that the pic makes it look icky!

Ewwwww, it sounds gross.

Sunshine Mama said...

That was so gross and funny at the same time. I think it was the puss texture and snot ball that really fired my imagination up.

I have an idea. I'll do fantasy food friday and you do freaky food friday! You did such a good job on this one. LOL!

I'll be sure to never eat it.

Dan – I don’t understand why not?

Jane – LOL…

Adrienne – It was as nasty as I described it.

TechnoBabe – Trust me, not missing anything.

Melanie’s Randomness – The one I had also tasted very yeasty and flour-like. Gross all around.

Jennifer – Repulsive is a great adjective for the Mochi

Brian – LOL. I think you should rush right out and get some NOW!

Maria.palermo – this is something you’d never miss.

Heckety – It’s the worst dessert I’ve had

Stereos and Souffles – LOL – OMG you managed to make the Mochi sound yummy

Secretia – I tried it, but trust me, she knew the moment I said WTH? I wasn’t going to hide my feelings for it.

Katie J – I’ll have to tell my friend about Trader Joe’s Mochi. She got them in some Asian market, but she loves the Mochi.

Jewels Diva – Sounds??? Let me clear up any confusion – it IS!!!!

Sunshine Mama – No way to the Freaky Food - see, I really TRY my hardest to avoid it so I wouldn’t be able to contribute much. I do love Fantasy Food Friday it brings back a lot of memories – especially the Hostess Cherry Pies.
