My Japanese Mochi Balls and Toppings experience

In: Japan

13 Nov 2010

As stated with my other post, we had breakfast at the apartment with food that we bought from Sunkus. Mavis heated the mochi balls in the microwave and noticed that there was another packet in the container. There was another packet which I opened containing chili sauce but didn’t really mind the packet the Mavis was holding since I saw that most of the writing was in Japanese. She was asking me what it was and told her that it might be another topping or crushed Nori which is typical in some of their food. She handed it to me and I topped the Mochi balls with the brown tiny pellets that came out of the packet. I grabbed one Mochi and proceeded to eat. The pellets didn’t really taste anything much but it were rather hard. They were like tiny-sand like brown stuff which I now covered the balls with. Still not able to add any taste to the Mochix I was wondering why they would place hard pellets like these on the balls bothered me.

I looked at the packet again and what I saw almost knocked me off my feet! DO NOT EAT!~These was interspersed with other red Japanese characters! Luckily for me, I only had a bite of that Mochi covered poison stuff and was able to spit whatever was still in my mouth after running to the washroom! Xianelle was asking what happened and as I was explaining to her, I was trying to blame Mavis and told her that since she gave it to me, I assumed that she wanted me to open the packet and use the content as topping for the Mochi Balls.

What a way to start the day!
