I think I’m craving for mochi that’s why I brought this aka (red) daifuku last time I was at the Japanese foodshop. Daifuku literally means great luck…but of course I don’t buy this for that. I’m never a believer of luck, whether bad or good.
Daifuku is a type of Japanese cake made of glutinous rice flour, it is somewhat the same as mochi only with filling. This daifuku I got has anko (sweet azuki bean paste) filling.

Though called “red” – it only refers to the azuki beans, the mochi itself is a lovely pink.
