Let me begin by defining what Daifuku is. Daifuku is a Japanese confection term for a round Mochi, stuffed with sweet fillings. This particular Mochi dessert has Matcha whipped cream and Koshian, which is smooth red bean paste, as fillings.
The photo on the package makes it look so yummy♪
Lawson used Uji Matcha powder from Tsujiri ichihonten, Kitaroman red beans from Hokkaido and sticky rice powder from Niigata. This couldn’t fail.
It was about the size of my palm (6 cm diameter).
The Mochi had plenty of Matcha powder kneaded in,
making it a beautiful green color.
Inside, the Mochi was filled with Koshian and the Uji Matcha cream.
The photo on the package did not misrepresent the contents (which often happens)!
The Mochi was soft and chewy and I’m a Mochi lover so this was such a treat!
The Koshian was very smooth and the sweetness did not overpower the balance.
The Matcha cream was bitter-sweet. What a genius combination!
Overall, this was a very sophisticated dessert. I enjoyed the after taste of the high quality Uji Matcha too. I could eat some more!
