Delicious Butter Mochi Senbei Rice Crackers from Iwatsuka

The other day, in the snack section of a supermarket, an unfamiliar product called Butter Mochi Senbei (バター餅せんべい) caught my eye and grabbed my attention.

It was from Iwatsuka Seika/Confectionery and appeared to be a sibling of the Kinako Mochi rice cracker. I love the sweet soy-flour-coated rice snack, so I wanted to try the butter flavor too.

When I hear Butter Mochi, what comes to mind first is Butter Shoyu Mochi, like this, but this treat is sweet and milky, dusted with Kinako soybean flour.

The package contains 18 pieces of individually wrapped rice crackers with two packaging designs;

One has the yellow color of butter/Kinako, while the other is associated with the black-and-white pattern of the cow. But there’s no difference in the contents.

The Senbei (cracker made from non-glutinous rice) is light and soft and matches perfectly with the melt-in-the-mouth texture of Kinako.

Its taste is mellow and rich like a buttermilk candy and was so addictive/yummy that I ate these rice crackers in one sitting!
