When I visited with daughter E in Honolulu for five weeks last year, one of our favorite treats was mochi ice cream, a Japanese-style bon bon made of pounded sticky rice wrapped around ice cream. The shops in Honolulu had many different flavors, a number of them tropical fruits.
When I returned home, I tried to find mochi ice cream. I finally found some green tea ones at Wegman’s, but my body doesn’t react well to tea, so I did’t buy them.
Yesterday, I happened to walk by the case and there were vanilla and strawberry mochi ice cream available.
I bought a box of strawberry and ate one after dinner last night.
It was delicious, but the memories of eating them with E made it all the sweeter.
