“Love 'dem Mochi Balls !”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Bubbies is my local favorite. I Cannot resist these little Canon Balls of Flavor ! There are two locations on Island but this one in Hawaii Kai is the one I frequent most because of the other restaurants around the marina. We always ask visitors if they've ever had a "Bubbies" Ice cream Mochi Ball...even if they've had Mochi Ice Cream, if it's not Bubbies...you haven't had it.

“What's a mochi?!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

...if you haven't tried it, it's well worth the trip to Bubbie's...there are three locations on Oahu.

Mochi is considered "Japanese ice cream" and made with rice. The inside and outside flavors are wonderful! -- I tried strawberry, my friend had chocolate peanut butter and both were scrumptious! She had had them before; I had not and was somewhat skeptical about trying it, but one bite had me convinced that I would be back! At $2 and two bites, it's enough to make you feel like you had a treat without overindulging. Try it!

“MOCHI!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

If you haven't had them, go get some! We had the salted caramel, guava, and vanilla and they were so, so, so good. Mochi is a true treat of ice cream wrapped in a sweet rice cake. We LOVE them!
