The Mochi Donut originated in the USA...that’s right, it is an American desert first concocted by Charmaine Ocasek in Hawaii around 1992. The ingredients consist of mochi flour which is a rice based ingredient originating in Japan. They were originally sold as fried balls of mochi flower and mashed poi.
Mochi donuts started becoming popular when Mister Donut, another American staple, began selling them in Japan in the shape known today and originally called “Pon de Ring”.
Mochi Dolci buys its main ingredients from Hawaii where the originators of Mochi keep the quality and structure of the ingredients the same as it was since 1992.
Bubble Tea originated in Taiwan in the early 1980’s. Tea vendors would put up shop stands outside of school playgrounds in Taiwan. Elementary school children would look forward to buying a cup of refreshing tea after a long, hard day of work and play.
The tea stands would compete with each other for the customers and they started adding flavors to their drinks. The tea drinks had to be shaken and would fill with bubbles and became known as “bubble tea”.
Later someone introduced tapioca pearls into the bubble tea, also known as bubbles, but they would float to the bottom of the drink. Now the bubble tea lovers would have bubbles on both the top and bottom of the tea drink.
