I imagine some of you are mentally saying “ew,” like you just caught someone picking their nose as you looked at the photo above. But you should flip that “ew” around, add an H between the two letters, and stick a bunch of Es at the end because this flavor is surprisingly fun. Wheeeeeee!
Well, that is if you can get your hands on My/Mochi’s Classic Pickle Mochi Ice Cream because it’s only available at mymochi.com and select SoCal Bristol Farms locations. But if pickle-flavored things tickle you or you want some entertainment at a holiday gathering this year, I recommend spending the green for a box.
The soft mochi coating is only green in color and provides no additional taste, but the off-white ice cream filling is unmistakably pickle. I understand that might sound awful regarding ice cream, but think of it as a pickle that’s sweet but not salty. It has a noticeable dill flavor, but there’s no brine taste, and there’s a lot more sugar, milk, cream, and vanilla, which makes the ice cream taste surprisingly good. Every time I ate one, I thought the dill had sort of a holiday spice kind of vibe to it. I’ve enjoyed this more than any of the odd Van Leeuwen pints that have come out. Although, I have yet to try the recent Dill Pickle one.
Call me weird. Call me a picklehead. Call me pickleweirdhead. But I genuinely love eating these. My/Mochi sent two boxes, and I’ve eaten a whole box already. And this will sound even weirder, but I’ve been craving them. (Am I pregnant?) I’ve been looking forward to eating one every day. I also want to eat more than one of these creamy treats daily, but I’ve been holding back because I know I’ll never get to eat them again once they’re gone. Unless My/Mochi decides my words are powerful enough to warrant a nationwide release. But my words have never been that influential.
Yes, most of you have no desire to eat pickle ice cream, and that’s fine. I’m not going to convince you to take adventure bites and expand your palate with the one life you have. But if pickles tickle you, you should try to pickle these up.
