Coffee Mochi

September 05, 2016 in Category: What's New

As any Crew Member can tell you, our customers love mochi ice cream, which is often referred to in freezer-aisle conversation as just mochi [say: “MOE-chee”]. We’ve long carried the stuff in Green Tea, Strawberry, Mango, and Chocolate flavors, and in 2014, we introduced our now-beloved, seasonal Pumpkin Pie Mochi Ice Cream.

But something was missing. What about mochi for the non-dairy crowd? What about creating a delicious frozen dessert that everyone can enjoy? We answered our own question(s) this year by creating Mango Mango Mochi just in time for the Summer of Mango and, now, by following up with Trader Joe’s Coffee Mochi just in time for... celebrating both the deliciousness of coffee and the very concept of dessert itself. (We love ya, dessert!)

Trader Joe’s Coffee Mochi is a true coffee-lover’s delight. Our Thai supplier—the same supplier who makes our Mango Mango Mochi and our pints of Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Made With Coconut Milk—takes a scoop of coconut milk-based coffee ice cream (which is smooth and slightly sorbet- like in texture), wraps it in a soft, chewy rice wrapper, and fills its center with a potent, lava-like mocha sauce. The result is a real eye-opener of a dessert that, at 60 calories per piece, you can feel good about enjoying.

You can enjoy a piece of Trader Joe’s Coffee Mochi all by yourself while standing in front of your freezer (no judgment here), or you can place all six on a fancy-schmancy plate and serve them to guests with a pot of your favorite, after-dinner TJ’s coffee.

And at $3.49 per 9.1 fluid ounce package of 6 treats (that’s less than 60 cents per piece!), Trader Joe’s Coffee Mochi isn’t just a delicious after-dinner palate cleanser—it’s an affordable one, too. You’ll find this exclusive-to-TJ’s product in our freezer section, and nowhere else.
