Boba Milk Tea Mochi by Tropical Fields
$10.99 for 900g (60 pieces)
A trip through my favourite membership-required bulk purchasing store resulted in me picking up a bag of Boba Milk Tea Mochi. Boba? Milk tea? Mochi? All things I enjoy. It came in a sealed, resealable bag and each mochi comes individually wrapped and there’s sixty (60) in the whole bag.
Boba Milk Tea Mochi consists of: sugars, glutinous rice, water, modified corn starch, white chocolate, bubble milk tea paste, boba, palm oil, mono and di-glycerides, salt, artificial flavour, potassium sorbate, and potato starch. The bubble tea milk paste contains black tea.
Each mochi comes in its own packaging. The packaging suggests that each mochi has a boba pearl, as well as a layer of milk tea flavour. When I bit into the mochi, I found that it was more of a one-note texture inside of the mochi. there was no differentiation for myself when I bit into the Boba Milk Tea mochi. The mochi is sweet, soft and chewy. I don’t find it to have a particular boba texture or sweetness – but it has a decent flavour, albeit a bit too sweet for my tastes.
My Overall Impression
I didn’t like Tropical Fields’ Boba Milk Tea Mochi. While the price was right for an impulse buy, I was disappointed that the mochi didn’t have the same texture as what appeared on the packaging (with the distinct boba pearl middle). The mochi itself has a great texture – nice and soft – I was just disappointed that it wasn’t what I had expected based on the photograph promises. I’d share these with others, but I’m not sure if I would buy them again. If you’re not too fussed with the boba part of the mochi, Boba Milk Tea Mochi is tasty.
