Microwavable mochi = cardboard tasting glue?

I found this commercial on Japan Probe on mochi.

This is of course a commercial for microwavable read made mochi, somehow with the fact that freshly pounded mochi is kinda of a publicize event, demand is inevitably greater than supply, hence the microwavable mochi. The effect is kinda lost though. Can only wonder as to how this would taste like.

Can only think of cardboard or glue as the result of microwaving this treat. Even the video reflects that it looks like glue.. >_<

The original got taken down, but there were other clips that showed the actor eating mochi from the same brand.

Any opinions?

    LOL haha whoa it looks pretty interesting. I guess like something if you wanted to try and stuff without having to go out of the way to get real mochi and such.

    I think it sort of looks better in the cut, and maybe heated up that way…and just eating it out with a spoon.

    I would imagine so, but then again I tried store brought/machine pounded mochi, and the taste was meh… Thanks for the comment. ^_^

    Aww… it’s a shame, the video has been removed. Well… overall everything designed to be heated in a microwave is not only not as tasty but detrimental to our health as well. When I finally get to try some Mochi I will definitively try them only if they were made the traditional way.

    Thanks for sharing miz… and replace the video if you have time, please! 😀

    Wow.. thanks for the comment. The video was unfortunately taken down, but I substitute it with another of the company’s cm, since there is a series of commercial. Mochi is a very popular desert/food for Asians, so I have noticed while not more of freshly pounded mochi in my experience, that there is a lot more of packaged. If you get the chance, please try it pounded!
