Our “Tomoe” rice cracker story will perfectly illustrate how hard Momo Mama Lei Ann works to find the shop truly special items: While visiting her parents in Hawaii, Lei Ann called Momo’s butter mochi mix guy. “Who has the best snacks in town, Butter Mochi Mix Guy?” she asked. He directed her to Taiyo, a snack food warehouse in Honolulu, where she met up with the very nice Lynn. As it turned out, Lynn is the great granddaughter of the founder of the company, which has been passed down through three generations. The “Tomoe” arare brand is named after her grandmother!
Momo Mama brought a suitcase filled with these delicious island-style bites back home to Seattle to share with all of you. We have mini yakko, hearts, sakura, norimaki and a blended mix!
|Perfectly crunchy! Salty with a slight hint of sweet.|
Momo has also replenished our butter mochi supply. A great dessert for gluten-intolerant folks (both the classic as well as the brownie mix), and is gluten free, addictively yummy and super easy to make.
|Mmmochi! Classic Butter and a Brownie mix, too.|
