People say “warabimochi” is one of popular sweets in western Japan in summer. “Warabimochi” is made from “warabi” powder which is a kind of starch. So the texture is glutinous and soft.

I often see that “warabimochi” comes with “kinako” powder and “kuromitsu”. “Kinako” is soybean powder, which is a popular material for “Wagashi” (Japanese traditional sweets). And “Kuromitsu” is brown sugar syrup, which has unique aroma and taste. My dad is a big fan of “kuromitsu”. “Kuromitsu” syrup is in the dumplings.

I expected softer dumpling and the syrup in it would pour out when I cut it…but it didn’t. I think it would be better more syrup in it.
Not bad. Around 100-150 yen.

Easy to get?
I got this at Seven-Eleven, one of the biggest convenience stores in Japan. If it is summer, you will be able to find “warabimochi” sweets at any convenience stores.
Get again?
Probably not…I have had better “warabimochi” so I would get other products next time.

The materials may be changed in the future so please check by yourself when you try it.
