Mochi ice cream at Whole Foods

Sunday was so hot that Jean and I agreed that we needed to fatten ourselves up with some ice cream. We needed to get some groceries at Whole Foods, so there's always the chance that we'd pick up some Jeni's ice cream to take home to eat. Whole Foods has opened their newest Irvine branch right behind Irvine Spectrum, so we swung by that location instead of the one in The District.

Once inside, we noticed that they had a large, standalone freezer that had self-serve, pre-made mochi ice creams. They had about 10 or so flavors varying from lychee to chocolate peanut butter, which happened to be the two flavors we got. Both of those flavors were awesome. As much as I like chocolate peanut butter, I think I favored the lychee flavored mochi ice cream more. A nice tasty treat for a hot day.
