  41 foodies rated 2- It is OK.

Mochiko is a consistent favorite in Mercato Centrale. It is credited with starting the mochi ice cream ball craze in Manila. Always innovative with new flavors, Mochiko introduced the cookie dough flavor in the Ultimate Taste Test.

The cookie dough is not too sweet and adds a good texture to this frozen treat. Most foodies loved it too and gave it a good rating. (Tip: To thoroughly enjoy it, you have to wait for the mochi to thaw before eating.)

Congratulations to Mochiko for winning in Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test!

Can you guess what the new flavors will be? 🙂

The Story of Mochiko
by Nowie and Odette Potenciano

The Mochiko story begins with travel and a love for desserts. Nowie and Odette Potenciano first encountered mochi – the sticky Japanese rice cakes – while going around cities all over Asia. They got addicted to the unusual texture of the mochi and imagined infinite possibilities of flavor combinations one could do with them. They began trying all the mochi they could get their hands on – from the simple macha-covered ones to unusual doughnut-shaped mochi.

An opportunity came along when a space at Cliffhouse Tagaytay where they had two other shops – an FIC Summer Café and a Fling Frozen Yogurt – became available. They took the plunge and came up with Mochiko – which specializes in mochi ice cream. Since then, they have made Mochiko available at the Mercato Centrale Weekend Market and other events such as the Eastwood Weekend Gourmet Market, Pinoy Eats World’s “World Eats” fairs and more. They are also planning to open a new shop in Casa Susana along Madrigal Avenue in Alabang very soon. Plus, they are joining the upcoming Soderno Weekend Market as well.

They now have eleven flavors including the best-selling Green Tea, Azuki (Red Bean), Black Sesame, Caramel and Avocado flavors. Their newest flavor – Cookie Dough  was previewed at the Ultimate Taste Test and is now their top-selling flavor.

About the product/Pricelist:

Cookie Dough Mochi – P70/pc but only P400 for 6pcs. 🙂
