    The green tea mochi ice cream was amazing. Each mochi is around $1.50-2.00

    The OG for mochi ice cream! Try out all the flavors here, or get regular ice cream. Either way, you win.

    The mochi here is fantastic, very soft but still wonderfully gummy. Highly recommend the gelato based ones.

    Don't get your hopes up for this place, not really worth the anticipation. However, very gratifying mochi.

    This is the place that makes the ice cream mochi you can find at Trader Joe's. Here, they have ice cream, a handful of ice cream mochi flavors that you can't find at TJs, gelato, and gelato mochi!
