Mochi Creams available now!
I am a little late in posting this, but mochi creams are available now at Shirokiya Ala Moana just opposite Saint Germain Bakery. Twenty or so different flavors are available including black sesame, green soybean and sweet potato. I have tried many of the flavors already and the soft, chewy mochi have a silky mouthfeel because of the lightness of the cream filling.
Mochi creams were named as one of Food and Wine magazine's 100 tastes to try in '08. So try some soon. They are a bit pricey (US$1.65 each or a half dozen for US$9.00), but worth every penny.
