Calpis Mochi: 3-Layer Chewy Delicious Rice Cake Candy
There are various classifications in Japanese confectionery, and Mochigashi (餅菓子: mochi sweets) is one of them.
Mochi-Gashi is the name for confections with a mochi-like chewiness, and many create the texture using Mochiko (もち粉) glutinous rice flour, which includes this Calpis Mochi.
Calpis Mochi (カルピスもち)
Calpis Mochi is not a traditional Mochigashi but a confection produced by Ito-Seika and sold by Kokubu Group with the brand name 日本橋菓房 (Nihonbashi-Kabou).
It is a popular mochi candy with Calpis cream inside, available at many supermarkets in Japan, and I bought the product (amount: 112 grams) for 170 yen.
The package contains eight pieces of Calpis Mochi. These treats are coated with a layer of starch but have a slight mochi-like stickiness, so they are individually packed.
The inside has a three-layer structure; The outer covering is a mochi-like Gyuhi, beneath which a white fluffy marshmallow layer lies, and the orange center is a Calpis-containing cream.
As you can imagine from the above, the mochi is almost as soft as Okayama’s Kibi-Dango and so yummy! The treat packs plenty of Japanese deliciousness, and I can recommend this to anyone!
