Mochidoki "Heart to Heart" Mochi Ice Cream Collection

Hard to believe it, but Mother's Day 2016 is a mere two weeks away. Every brunch place from here to Orange County is already filling up with reservations, so what's a foodie to do? Well, I got an email from mochidoki out of NYC and they've sent over free samples of something different that they have planned for the big day.

each box contains four of each flavor, but I've mixed them up to show you all three

Not sure what mochi is? Mochidoki has a good explanation here. Now it's been a very long time since we've had mochi on the blog and this collection is way fancier then what you might find in the freezer aisle. Mochi is typically plain looking but they've gone and dressed these up like fancy chocolates and then put them in these understated yet effective packages.

I've tried them all and I can say it's definitely a quality product. The chocolate dipping is a really nice touch both texture and flavor wise. Oh, ok, I may have broken a few of them apart in the name of science. The ice cream inside is good. I enjoyed the nice vanilla ice cream with the itty bitty chocolate chips inside. The strawberry is an enjoyable, mildly flavored ice cream. The raspberry is stronger than the strawberry and for a moment I even questioned if it might be a sorbet.

With those positives noted, I will say that mochi still isn't my thing. While this is a fine example of mochi ice cream, I just can't lock in to the chewy nature of the dough, so let's bring in the backup taste testers. While my daughter shares my reservations, my wife gives a big thumbs up. Yes it's different, but the mom of the house has happily accepted the duties of finishing off the samples.

Thanks again to Mochidoki for letting us try this unique Mother's Day gift. It's certainly something that I never would have had the confidence to order on my own. If you want to try it, you can buy the collection here. Good luck and have a great mother's day (incase I forget to say it later!)

$40.00 (plus shipping)?!???!! I love my mom and all, but if I'm going to spend that kind of dough I'm going to get something more substantial than ice cream.
