Trader Joe’s launches brand new Kung Pao Mochi Balls

News just in about this brand new product from one of our favorite places to shop – Trader Joe’s. The edgy retailer recently announced the release of their Trader Joe’s Kung Pao Chicken Mochi Balls, inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo. Mochi is of course normally a chilled dessert product, so this cooked savory twist has us doubly intrigued. The brand writes:

Each Kung Pao Chicken Mochi Ball is about the size of a golf ball and develops a beautifully crisp, brown exterior when baked. After the initial crunch of that first bite, you’re immediately treated to the soft, chewy texture of the mochi’s interior, and then the delightfully sweet and spicy sensation of the Kung Pao sauce, followed quickly by the tender chicken and veggie medley inside.

The nine ounce boxes should be immediately available and are priced $3.99.Have you tried the new mochi balls? How did you like them?
