The product is a celebratory box of My/Mochi's mochi ice cream, which includes three mouthwatering flavors: strawberry with boba, red bean, and matcha green tea. One box contains 18 pieces (or six of each flavor) and costs $11.49, though the exact price might vary by location.

If you're unfamiliar with mochi, it's a chewy rice cake. It's also a traditional Japanese snack, but you can find variations in other countries like China and Korea. And while mochi can be enjoyed throughout the year, it's often eaten on Lunar New Year. Mochi ice cream is a riff on this treat, as it consists of a rice cake stuffed with ice cream. In other words, it's delicious.


What's more, My/Mochi's Lunar New Year mochi ice cream comes in a red box adorned with a tiger. That's because 2022 is the year of the tiger, according to the Chinese zodiac. The packaging is beautiful and festive, to say the least.


To determine if this dessert is available at your local warehouse, call Costco before stopping by. You can find it in the freezer section.
