You spoke, and Whole Foods Market listened.
The grocery store just added their infamously popular self-serve mochi bar to seven Ontario locations for the first time ever.
If you’re unfamiliar with this treat, you should know that it’s a Japanese-inspired dessert made by covering bite-sized balls of creamy ice cream with a sweet Japanese rice dough.
Individual mochi ice creams are now available in self-serve cases at these seven locations and patrons can choose from a variety of flavours including chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, salted caramel, and a handful of ever-changing seasonal ice creams too.

A single ‘scoop’ of mochi from Whole Foods will run you around $2.29, but realistically you’re probably going to opt for the $12.99 for six combos, because who can have just one?
This new offering has also been added to five locations in BC as well.
“The customer response was overwhelming and we’re thrilled to roll out the program to an additional 11 Canadian Whole Foods Market locations just in time for summer,” says Whole Foods’ global category manager Andy Sasser.
