Roses are red, violets are blue, this mochi is soy sauce based, dreams do come true!

Red roses, berries and mochi

This is a 醤油餅・shōyu mochi, or soy sauce mochi, but its quite lightly flavoured and mixed with white bean. The salty, smooth, sticky, sweet is really nice. It reminds me of mitarashi dango at festivals a little bit. It’s made out on the coast at Itoshima Dango but I bought them at the grocery store near me. Most of the little local places are still on their New Years holidays so I’ve been going to the more major grocery stores lately. They will open again soon and I will run back with open arms.
