Very unique but not so tasty!

Please note that this review was not paid for or sponsored by any third party. However, I was given a free sample of this product to review. The opinions in this review are strictly my own. I am not affiliated with Costco or any of its suppliers. I am just a fan of the company. I write these reviews to help my fellow shoppers.

I found a unique looking item at Costco when I went there recently and decided to pick it up to review! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Formosa Mocha Dessert Assortment!


I wanted to love these because I though they looked so interesting but unfortunately they were just way too sweet for my liking! What they are is a pillowy soft, chewy, round mini bun looking thing made out of an ingredient known as mochigome which is a short-grain glutinous rice. The mochi has a sweet filling that almost tastes like it has a bit of plum flavor to me but is mainly just sweet. I definitely didn’t love these and only ate a bite of each, they were just way too sweet and the flavor wasn’t right. The green tea did taste like green tea but the taro didn’t taste quite right to me!


I paid $10.99 for the box of 24 mochi desserts. I’m not sure how much mochi usually is so I can’t say whether this is a reasonable price or not.


The best before date is about 10 months from the date we purchased these. Each tray comes in plastic wrap with eight mocha per tray. There’s two flavors. Green tea and taro. I have to point out that despite opening the plastic wrap and leaving the mocha out without putting them in a ziplock bag they still stayed strangely extremely soft!


One taro mochi is 110 calories, zero grams of fat, 20 mg of sodium, zero grams of protein, 15 grams of sugar, zero grams of fibre and 25 grams of carbohydrates. One green tea mochi is 110 calories, 15mg of sodium and15 grams of sugar. These definitely aren’t healthy for you. The initial ingredient is sugar.

I found these way too sweet and didn’t love the flavors. I won’t be buying them again. I’m curious to hear what others have thought of them!

Cool down with the Frozen-Yogurt-and-Churro combo from the food court.

After a hard day of shopping, many people swear by Costco's food court to round out the day. From hot dogs to pizza to froyo, and just in time for summer, fans have spotted a new addition: the Frozen-Yogurt-and-Churro combo.

Costco has previously offered their frozen yogurt and churros separately, and people havecombined the two desserts on their own. But they're now selling the two items as a combo for $2.35.

The fan-favorite, Skinny Freezers, are officially back on Costco shelves.

Costco has restocked on the fan-favorite, Slim Chillers' Vodka Martini Skinny Freezers. These 100-calorie pops hit stores last summer and people couldn't get enough. Recently, it was confirmed that they're now in time for the warm weather.

These boozy popsicles infused with vodka and vermouth come in four flavors: Cosmopolitan, Watermelon Lemonade, Appletini, and Lemon Drop. They come in a box of 12 for $20.

Claffey’s Frozen Cocktails are low-cal, wine-infused popsicles.

If you're not a big spirits fan, don't worry, Costco has something for you. Unlike the Skinny Freezers, Claffey's Frozen Cocktails are infused with wine. These boozy popsicles are only90 calories each, gluten-free, and contain 6% alcohol. They come in six fruity flavors: Cherry Lips, Punk Lemonade, Ice Blue, Modern Mango, Grab Apple, and Purple Party.

Costco isselling a 12-count boxfor $18. You can find them in Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

My/Mo mochi ice cream balls are little bites of heaven.

Another fun summer treat you can find at Costco this summer is My/Mo mochi ice cream. The mochi, a Japanese rice cake, ismolded around small balls of ice cream. They're only 120 calories per mochi ball and they're gluten-free.

The 18-piece variety pack is sold at Costco for only $13, and you can find them in the freezer section. The variety pack includes three flavors: Vanilla Bean, Ripe Strawberry, and Sweet Mango.


Clio Greek Yogurt Bars are both refreshing and healthier for you.


Containing probiotics, protein, and vitamin C, Clio's Greek Yogurt Bars go above and beyond the call of a froyo dessert bar. Each yogurt bar is coated with dark chocolate, and they come in a variety of flavors. And you don't have to worry about them melting if you take them on the go, as they are stored in the refrigerator.

You can find them at Costco for $13 for a 16-pack box, which features its strawberry and vanilla flavor varieties.

Golden kiwis literally taste like summer.

Besides cold treats, summer is also a great time to enjoy seasonal fruits. One fruit in particularassociated with summer is the golden kiwi. They're sold between May and October, and taste oh-so-summery.

The difference between a golden kiwifruit and a green kiwifruit lie in its skin and flavor. Golden kiwis don't have a fuzzy skin, they're much smoother, and golden kiwis are also much sweeter than their green kiwi counterparts. You can find them at Costco selling for around$7 for a 2-pound container.

Mini seedless watermelons are sold by the two-pack at Costco.

Another summer fruit you can find at many grocery stores this season is watermelon. Costco's mini seedless watermelons are especially worth trying. They're sweet, juicy, and perfect for a summer fruit salad. Costco is selling them in a two-pack for $7.

Fresh acai bowls can now be found at the Costco food court.

Costco has officially added acai bowls to their food court offerings. Costco acai bowls are made of whipped acai topped with their store brand Kirkland Signature granola, fresh berries, and banana chips.  

In January, Costco decided to test drive their acai bowls out west, and apparently, it was a hit. By the end of June, all Costco food courts nationwide will be serving $5 acai bowls.

Costco’s Fresh Fruit-Topped Bar Cake is light and fresh.

Just in time for the Fourth, Costco will again be selling itsFresh Fruit-Topped Bar Cake this summer, sold at their in-house bakery. It's a white cake filled and iced with whipped vanilla mousse and then garnished with white chocolate on its sides. Its top is decorated with strawberries and blueberries that have been tossed in a fruit glaze.

You can find this cake in store during July and August and it's $16.

These Mochi Ice Cream Boxes Have Costco Shoppers Divided

Who knew that ice cream, particularly ice cream from Costco, which usually hits it out of the park for its members, could be so controversial? 

One freezer section item that is causing some disagreement is a mochi treat. Some say they and their kids like the My Mochi ice cream bites, while others found them unappealing and threw them out.

The Instagram account Costcobuys was the source of the controversy when it created a post about the My Mochi ice cream product. The box features 18 individually wrapped small bites (the size is well-suited for kids). The 100-calorie ice cream treats come in sweet mango, strawberry, and vanilla bean varieties.

If you've never had mochi ice cream, the website Global Grub explains the multi-layered Japanese treats you can eat with your fingers. The outer layer, the actual mochi, is a confection made from sticky rice. Inside this soft, chewy, sweet, and pliable exterior, there is a creamy ice cream center.

They sound delicious, right? So why is there a kerfuffle among Costco fans about the worthiness of adding this product to your Costco shopping list? Costcobuys merely shared that the boxes were on sale for $7.99 (regular price $10.99), but apparently this was enough to stir up some drama. "Mochi ice cream is on sale for $7.99 through 9/26!" they wrote. "This includes six each of strawberry, mango, and vanilla flavors!"

7 Must try Asian Food from Costco- Costco Instant Ramen, Pho, Mochi Icecream, Korean BBQ, Cookies

You have got to try this Costco Mochi ice cream! Costco sell this Bubbies Mochi Premium Collection for $9.99. Scroll down for photos. It does go on sale every once in a while if you want to hold out though. I think this is one of the best brands out there (Mikawaya, My/Mo Mochi, Trader Joe’s, etc). It’s absolutely one of the best prices too. Mochi isn’t cheap & you can get this 18 pack for $10. It comes out to about $0.56 per mochi, which isn’t bad. All 3 flavors are great too. Although, if I had to pick one, I’m going with the mango mochi. This can be found in the freezer section of Costco next to the frozen fruit. Here are a few more details about this Mochi Ice Cream…….

  • Brand: Bubbies 18 Count
  • Flavors: Strawberry, Green Tea & Mango
  • Premium Ice Cream wrapped in sweet rice dough
  • Only 90 Calories per piece
  • Let thaw for 3 – 4 minutes before serving

Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream at Costco

If you’ve read my other posts than you know I can be a binge eater. This is one of those items I can’t keep around too often. I will go through all 18 Mochi in a couple of days. We try to only buy this a couple times a year or during a dinner party, that way most of them will get eaten. I’m a sucker for chewy sweets, which makes it hard to keep Hi-Chews around the house. If you have trouble finding this at Costco or you want the individual flavors, make sure to check out Amazon. They sell this brand (Bubbies) via Whole Foods & you can get them delivered.
