Here's another great treat from Japan. My cousin brought everyone a box of these delicious mochis during here visit to the U.S. last month.

Mochi are delectable little treats made from glutinous rice that are first ground or pounded into powder and then formed into these little morsels. They can be flavored different ways as were the mochi in this box. My favorite ones were the ones wrapped in the yellow wrapper, they were lemon flavored. The pink wrapped ones were strawberry flavored.

Then you have the ones rolled in toasted sesame, macha and some other flavoring we couldn't quite guess.

If you get a chance to try these beautiful treats, make sure you do. You won't regret it.
