Have you ever tried mochi? Mochi is kind of hard to describe if you haven’t had it before – it’s a rice cake with a very unique texture. Wikipedia does a better idea of describing it than I probably would! Anyway, I’m reviewing the Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi today. I’ve had mochi before, but I’ve never tried boba mochi. I really like boba in beverage form, but I haven’t loved mochi when I’ve tried it before. I’m curious if these Boba Milk Tea Mochi are good!
Location in Store
These are located in the snack section at Costco, near the granola bars, protein bars and candy. The item number is 1571731.
The Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi are pillowy soft! The texture is extremely squishy, chewy and almost gelatinous. The flavor of the boba mochi is very sweet, borderline too sweet. There’s a slight hint of brown sugar flavor coming from the center but not much other flavor other than sweetness and I didn’t get any tapioca pearl flavor.
The boba milk tea mochi are very fresh tasting from being individually packaged and the outside is slightly powdery. When enjoyed frozen, they are much firmer but not hard and still chewy. The texture of them frozen reminds me of a tapioca pearl from a bubble tea. I actually prefer them frozen.
The package shows these having a tapioca pearl on the inside and milk tea flavor surrounding the tapioca pearl, they’re too soft and squishy to notice a discernable tapioca pearl.
The 900 gram bag of 60 individually package Tropical Fields Boba Milk Tea Mochi costs $9.99 Canadian at Costco which isn’t really unreasonable for a unique food product like this!
Each Costco boba milk tea mochi is individually wrapped which keeps them very fresh tasting! The bag recommends storing them in the freezer or keeping them in a cool, dry place.
The best before date is a year and two months from the date we purchased them. I think these make a good snack or dessert. I probably can’t eat more than one or two because they’re so sweet.
Two pieces of Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi is 110 calories, two grams of fat, 22 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, six grams of sugar, zero grams of protein and 10 mg of sodium. I’m surprised there are only six grams of sugar because I find these taste so sweet!
This is a long list of ingredients with a lot of things on it that I don’t recognize or know what they are. Such as trehalose? Isomalto-oligosaccharides? The mochi contains milk and soy and may contain egg, wheat, gluten, sesame, peanuts and tree nuts. I can tell you that you get zero nutrition from the Costco Tropical Fields Boba Milk Tea Mochi, these are definitely a treat and something I personally would try not to eat a ton of.
Give it a try!
I’m not a big mochi person, to be honest, but these aren’t bad. One or two are pretty tasty, but after that, I find them too sweet. If you’re someone who wouldn’t like the gelatinous, squishy texture, you’ll probably want to pass on these as that’s probably the main thing you’ll notice when you’re eating them!
