Some people might be thinking why they should choose mochis over cupcakes. Well, first of all I would like to say that this blog is by no means a way to sway you from the beloved cupcake. It is mainly to inform you of a great alternative to the cupcake to satisfy your sweet tooth or for your special occasions. With that being said, there are a few comparisons of the mochi to the mini cupcake with frosting.
Mochis are about half the calories and half the fat of a mini cupcake with frosting so you can feel a bit less guilty in munching down a mochi. Mochis offer a unique texture on the inside and outside than the cupcake. It is soft to touch and hold on the outside and bursting with an array of flavors and textures on the inside. Mochis also offer a good value for your money. They are about half the price of a mini cupcake so less damage to the wallet if you are ordering for an event or even as a special treat for yourself. Now, these are the values for just the mini cupcake. If you dare to think about having the regular size cupcake then everything goes upwards by about 2-3 times.
So, the next time you are thinking about cupcakes for any type of occasions, make sure you also think about mochis as a tastier, healthier, and cheaper alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth.
