The girls and I like to try new foods now and again. My older daughter has particularly adventurous tastes. *L* Today while shopping in a grocery store we don't often visit, she went through the import aisle and found these. Taro flavoured mochi.
How... fascinating. *L*
We had no idea what it was, though after looking it up I realized it was just a matter of forgetting the name. I even have recipes for mochi. We just never had the chance to try it before.
I'm not sure if I like it! The taste is sweet and I like taro, but the texture...
... it's like flesh. That's all I can think to compare it too! When we opened the package, we all just sort of looked at them for a bit. It did not look much like the photo on the package. Then I poked at it.
That didn't stop us from trying it, though.
We've had two each, and I still don't know if I like it or not. That weird, chewy, fleshy texture.
I just asked both girls what they thought. My younger daughter can't get past the texture and has decided she finds it icky. My older just said, "skin!" *L*
Yeah, that about sums it up.
Yet I can picture myself suddenly craving this stuff at some point!
