There’s a Subscription for That: Mochi

There's a Subscription For That is a series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers. 

Mochi is a Japanese treat made of glutinous rice that's formed into shapes and often dyed a variety of fun colors. Traditionally, these chewy rice cakes are eaten around Japanese New Year, but you can usually find them available year-round. Modern mochi often features a range of fillings, ice cream being one of the most popular. Cold, rich ice cream encased in chewy rice cake is a delight unlike any other; and mochi ice cream producers create these little handheld delicacies in a variety of creative and delicious flavors. You'll probably find a couple of options in the freezer section of your local grocery store (Trader Joes has several varieties, for example), but if you'd like to keep your freezer stocked with high-quality mochi in a wide range of chef-driven flavors, there's a subscription for that.

Mochidoki is a mochi producer based out of New York City that now ships nationwide. Their little pillowy mochi dumplings are created in a variety of innovative and creative flavors, and all of their treats are made with the finest ingredients available. (Think natural purees, spices, and powders.) There are gluten-free options available as well as a selection of vegan mochi made with coconut milk instead of dairy. Available flavors span the range from traditional (Matcha, Red Bean, Black Sesame) to fruity (Lychee, Mango, Passion Fruit) to experimental (Cake Batter, Apple Miso Caramel, Turmeric Hot Honey, and Milk & Cereal).

If you happen to be in NYC's Soho, you can swing by Spring Street to pick up mochi from the brick & mortar shop; however, Mochidoki will also ship nationwide! Want mochi delivered every single month? Subscriptions are available for both the Mochidoki Signature Collection and the Mochidoki Signature Vegan Collection. If you subscribe to either of these, you'll receive 10% off each shipment. The Mochidoki Signature collection features 12 bestselling flavors, which the vegan collection features 6. Shipping is assessed by zone. Zone 1 states receive $10 flat rate shipping, and free shipping on orders over $100. Zone 2 states receive $30 flat rate shipping, and free shipping on orders over $200. All orders are packed and shipped frozen with a "perfect condition guarantee."
