QQ Mochi Croffle

All types of hybrid desserts have been a trend for years, and the QQ Mochi Croffle is a combination of three of our favourite treats into one.

Handcrafted and made in-house every day, these mochi croffles are an entirely original creation.

Mochi is a doughy treat made from sweet rice, giving it a uniquely chewy, smooth, and elastic texture. The consistency goes perfectly with the flaky dough of a croissant and the crispy outer edges of a waffle.

Flavours like Oreo, matcha, and original mochi will all be available in croffle form. It’s a no-mess, freshly baked handheld good that’s fun to order, taste, and take pictures of.

Address: 1224 Centre Street N, Calgary
