Just Say Mochidoki!

Ever go to your local frozen yogurt store and see something

that looks like a type of transparent marshmallow? That is mochi for you!

 

After recieving Mochidoki in the mail to post about on @feedyoursoull, I decided to familiarize myself with the history behind mochi.

IMG_2900.JPG

The similar appearing topping is actually a creation from rice grains, called mochigome. According to Mochidoki’s website, Mochi is the result of “harvested, hulled, and ground” mochigome that turns into a “fine powder called mochiko,” which is similar to sugar. The mochi dough is created after mochiko is combined with water, sugar, and steam. The result is chewy and fluffy like.

Mochi is the final result that you typically see at your local frozen yogurt stores, but did you know this topping is very traditional in Japan?

The first mochi ever eaten was by the emperors and is typically used as a symbol to bring in the New Year. The word “mochi” comes from the word “motsu” which means to hold or to have. To the Japanese, mochi is a food given by Heaven.

To be honest, mochi is so much better as a topping on frozen yogurt because it does not harden like a marshmallow.

Mochidoki made mochi even better by stuffing the rice cake with ice cream flavors like chocolate, black sesame, matcha green tea, and salted caramel.

The process is not an easy one because the mochi is hot and sticky which would make the cold ice cream melt as the mochi is being wrapped around it into a ball.

When Two Worlds Collide

When thinking about American food, the first foods that come to mind for me are pizza, burgers, french fries. Lately many food companies have been hybridizing foods such as the Pretzel Dog from Auntie Anne’sThe Cronut by Dominique Ansel, and The Churro Cone by Dessert Club, ChikaLicious.

The latest hybrid that has come to my attention is the ‘Burgerizza.’ Yup…that is a Pizza and a Burger…combined into one. Can someone say foodie heaven? The ‘Burgerizza’ can be found at Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves.

USA Today describes the pizza as consisting of a 20-ounce beef patty, with five slices of cheddar cheese, and topped with crispy bacon, and is in between two 8-inch pepperoni pizzas.

The $26 meal is totally worth spending at a baseball game because who does not love pizza and a burger combined into one? Talk about a way to get a heart-attack though…

This is not the only crazy food at Turner Field. ‘The Everything Dog’ is also on the menu which is a foot-long hot dog, topped with fries, chili, nacho chips, beer cheese, jalapeños, popcorn, and drizzled with with Coca-Cola-infused BBQ sauce. Don’t worry, the dog is not served on just any bun, but on a pretzel bun. The price of the loaded dog is set at $15.

The reason for this ridiculously over the top menu is because the Braves are moving into a new stadium in 2017.

MTV Movie Awards Fashion Looks

Although the main awards season is over, MTV hosted their Movie Awards for stars.This year the MTV Movie Awards was hosted by The Rock and Kevin Heart on Sunday, April 9. Many stars hit the red carpet and showed off their fashion choices. Some dos and dont’s of course were in sight…but for the most part I would give these celebrities 5-stars:

Keeping up with the Kardashians: Engagement Edition

No surprise at least one of my posts had to be about the Kardashians…Rob Kardashian proposed to Blac Chyna on Monday, April 4. Just after three months of dating, and many rumors that the controversial couple had broken up, Rob Kardashian put a ring on Blac Chyna’s finger.

What an adorable couple…but can we take a step back here and realize that now, Blac Chyna and Tyga’s son, King Cairo Stevenson, could essentially become Tyga’s nephew if the rapper were to marry Kylie Jenner in the future.

Tyga and Blac Chyna were originally engaged and had one son together, but both called off the engagement when Kylie caught Tyga’s eye. Although this hurt Blac Chyna, especially since she had lost her man to an underaged girl at the time, Blac Chyna moved on with life and finally found her future husband who just so happens to be the half-brother of Kylie Jenner. E! News said that this sparked fans to question if the engagement was real or not, especially considering Kylie’s current boyfriend

Talk about family drama, or so the general public thought. Tyga’s reaction to the engagement pure happiness when he tweeted, “Everybody deserves 2 be happy. What some1 does for their happiness is not my concern, as long as it’s not interfering wit my happiness,” he continued, “It makes me happy to see the mother of my son happy. My only concern in this situation is my son. I want him in happy environments. He’s innocent in this & I want him to feel as much love as possible.”

At least there is happiness floating in their air.

I don’t think anyone could have seen Blac Chyna and Rob’s relationship coming in the first place, let alone an engagement. It truly is hard to “keep” up with the Kardashians.
