Seven Eleven released a mochi dessert. It reminds me of fluffy snow in the winter .
The rare cheese filling is made from cream cheese and whipped cream.
Do I even need to taste-test this sweet?
I already know how it will taste. In a word “delicious”, without a doubt!

It was about the size of the palm of my hand (8cm diameter). I lifted it with my hand, oh my goodness, it was so soft!
Handle with care! I would personally use a spoon because the outside is very powdery.

Look at the rare cheese cream filling! So generous!
I had a bite and instantly the richness of the cream cheese flavor conquered my mouth. The sweetness was perfect. I also enjoyed the refreshing sourness from the lemon juice used in the filling. The dough was so soft it just melted on my tongue.
I’m already obsessed with this dessert. I need to go get some more!
