Whole Foods Market is now offering self-serve mochi ice cream in most Canadian stores in Ontario and British Columbia. Mochi ice cream is a popular Japanese-inspired dessert made by covering bite-sized balls of creamy vegan ice cream with a sweet Japanese rice dough.

“We first launched this unique and wildly popular sweet treat in Canada last April at our new North Vancouver store opening,” says Andy Sasser, global category manager at Whole Foods Market. “The customer response was overwhelming and we’re thrilled to roll out the program to an additional 11 Canadian Whole Foods Market locations just in time for summer.”

Individual mochi ice creams are available in self-serve cases and shoppers can choose from a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and salted caramel, with additional rotating seasonal flavors to come. Prices range from $2.29 for a single serving and $12.99 for six.
