The hot pickle trend is making its way to the freezer with My/Mochi as the Los Angeles, California-based company is introducing the world’s first and only Classic Pickle mochi ice cream in advance of National Pickle Day in the USA, which will be celebrated on November 14.
“Our brand is all about stretching the possibilities of what can be done with mochi, so we are constantly looking at the trends and flavors people are buzzing about to bring more fun and flavor to the ice cream category,” said Brigette Wolf, chief marketing officer at My/Mochi. “The pickle trend is so hot right now, so we thought, ‘let’s do something cool,’ that only we could pull off in a way that would be premium and delicious. We’re pretty tickled about our pickle product and hope others are too!”
My/Mochi Classic Pickle mochi ice cream is gluten free, nut free, contains no artificial ingredients and serves up just 80 calories per piece. The limited-edition treat is now available at select retail stores in California and online.
My/Mochi is North America’s original mochi ice cream company, founded in the 1990s by a Japanese baker and American entrepreneur who set up a small shop in the Little Tokyo section of Los Angeles. The brand has evolved and grown considerably over the years. Today it is available in more than twenty flavors – including Cookies & Cream, Strawberry, Double Chocolate, Mango and S’Mores, as well as dairy-free options and Smoothies.
