McDonald's 'Sakura Mochi Pie' tasting review with cherry blossom leaf flavor and chewy texture that is perfect for spring

' Sakuramochi pie ', which is a crispy pie wrapped with red bean paste and cherry-flavored rice cake, will appear at McDonald's from Wednesday, March 23, 2022. The cherry-flavored mochi contains salted cherry leaves, and it is said that it reproduces the authentic taste of sakuramochi. I was wondering what kind of taste it would be if the taste of sakuramochi and the crispness of the pie were combined, so I actually tried it.

Arrived at McDonald's.

This time, I ordered 'Sakuramochi pie' for takeout and brought it back.

The appearance of 'Sakuramochi pie' looks like this. The surface is a shade between dark pink and brown.

I was wondering what was going on inside, so I cut it in half with a knife.

The cross section looks like this. Pink rice cake and red bean paste are wrapped. The dark grains that can be seen in the mochi are cherry leaves.

When you actually eat it, you can enjoy the crispy texture of the puff pastry and the chewy texture of the mochi at the same time. The flavor of the cherry leaves contained in the mochi was firmly felt, and the taste of sakura mochi was perfectly reproduced. The sweetness of the puff pastry and red bean paste and the salty taste of the cherry leaves are a perfect match, and they complement each other. However, the salty taste was a little strong, so it is recommended to enjoy it with a drink.

'Sakuramochi Pie' is 150 yen including tax and can be eaten at McDonald's nationwide from March 23, 2022 (Wednesday).
