My flight left Hawai’i in the evening, and in the morning, my mom drove us to Shirokiya. “You gotta eat mochi for good luck,” she said.
So we got a few bags of their fresh Tsukitate mochi…some to share and some for us. Sold in five or ten packs, they break down to $1 apiece.
Plain, but wonderfully chewy and sticky. We ended up eating most of it in the car, heheh. This car has been home to many a good snack and meals.
Too bad we didn’t store kinako powder or salted nori sheets in the passenger seats. Would have been so wonderful to wrap in the nori or sprinkle with kinako!
