Have you ever tasted Japanese Mochi? You should.

Japan is a beautiful, magical place. Their sense of aesthetics runs through everything from clothing to architecture to packaging and food. I remember stopping into a small shop to grab a cheese sandwich and receiving something that looked like an art piece - two perfect triangles with the crust removed. Even the bag the sandwich was placed in was beautiful, sealed with a gold medallion. I never got used to everything as art, but I liked it. Food as an art form is celebrated in the Japanese semi-sweet, chewy rice treats called mochi. Once you try it, you'll want more.

Featured Certification

The Federal Trade Commission requires a product advertised as 'Made in USA' be "all or virtually all" made in the U.S. U.S. content must be disclosed on automobiles and textile, wool, and fur products. There’s no law that requires most other products sold in the U.S. to be marked or labeled 'Made in USA' or have any other disclosure about their amount of U.S. content. However, manufacturers and marketers who choose to make claims about the amount of U.S. content in their products must comply with the FTC’s 'Made in USA' policy. Note: Products made in sweatshops in the American territory of Saipan are allowed to carry this label.
