Halloween Ice Cream? Yes Please!

I'm so excited to share some very exciting (and delicious) news with you! This year the gorgeous award-winning ice cream makers Little Moons have produced a special edition Spiced Pumpkin Pie mochi ice cream. 

But what is mochi?!

Mochi is steamed rice flour which creates a delightful chewy mochi outer, wrapped around gelato ice-cream.

Little Moons had this to say about their spooky-licious flavoured ice cream...

'Launching in October, the Spiced Pumpkin Pie edition will be available exclusively at the Little Moons mochi ice cream bar at Whole Foods Market stores across London (High Street Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Fulham, Richmond and Clapham Junction).

Mochi is a Japanese delicacy where it has been enjoyed for thousands of years. Traditional mochi is filled with red bean paste, however, Little Moons have innovated the concept by combining delicious gelato spheres made from British dairy and wrapping them with sweet, soft mochi dough.

This new edition has taken inspiration from the classic transatlantic dessert, the pumpkin pie. The gelato and mochi is made by combining real pumpkin with an autumnal spice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger to produce a scrumptious seasonal treat.

The delicious taste, special consistency and colourful appearance makes Little Moons mochi a unique and indulgent gelato experience. Gluten-free and less than 100 calories each, they are the perfect bite-sized treat; ideal as a snack or as an after dinner reward for those looking for some measured indulgence.

The Spiced Pumpkin Pie edition can be found at the self-serve mochi ice cream bar at Whole Foods Market stores in High Street Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Fulham, Richmond and Clapham Junction and also the Mochi Pop bar at the High Street Kensington branch.

Visitors can choose to take home their own assortment of Little Moons mochi ice cream spheres in a freezer bag box at the self-serve station or head to the dedicated bar (at High Street Kensington) to create their own Little Moons ‘Mochi Pop’, a skewered stack of prettily coloured spheres of mochi ice cream designed to be enjoyed immediately.

Guests will be able to enjoy a range of innovative Little Moons varieties, mixing and matching them to create their own exciting flavour combinations: Matcha Green Tea, Toasted Sesame, Coconut, Raspberry, Yuzu, Vanilla, Mango, Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Hazelnut and now Pumpkin Pie.

At the Little Moons mochi ice cream bar, a selection of one to five delicious mochi spheres cost £1.50 each and six or more cost £1.25 each. 

Little Moons require no preparation before consumption and are best savoured one bite at a time after removing from the freezer for three to five minutes to allow the mochi to soften.'

I certainly hope I get chance to try these delicious treats out soon, don't you?
