Mochi wrapped Kyoho Grapes

These grapes are sweet, and many sold are seedless, which makes it even more enjoyable to eat. The kyoho wrapped in mochi is what I am posting on today–a first time ever treat that I got to try out just last month.

My parents went to a restaurant in Tokyo that has a monthly menu. On their dessert section of their September menu, they served this mochi wrapped kyoho grapes. My dad loved it and thought that it would be great to share with the family for the fall festival day, so he ordered thirty of them for that celebration day.

The grapes came in a nice wooden box. I opened the box and found many round balls in it. Those balls had semi-clear outer layer (the mochi part) and something inside. It was early morning, and I knew that this was sweet, but I had to try it out. I wanted to see the inside so I didn’t want to finish this in one bite (though it was very easily doable), so I could get a picture of the inside. The kyoho grapes was sweet even with the sweet mochi layer outside, and they were all made with seedless grapes! The texture was nice, very dessert like soft and fluffy. It was such delicacy, a seasonal one, that made it even more special.
