Peanut mochi

My mum bought this for me yesterday at our local Chinese bakery Nice Bakery, this is a peanut mochi, it was quite big:

because she bought me a mango mochi (which btw, was cho oishii so!) from the same bakery the other day that looked exactly the same from outer appearance, I had assumed that it was another mango mochi...until I took my first bite & instantly felt the crunch & tasted the flavor of chopped beautifully roasted peanuts (and quite a large amount of it too). The filling also contained quite a large amount of white sugar to balance out the savory taste of the peanuts. The glutinous rice mold of the mochi was soft & chewy and beautifully sweet, yet not too overpowering. And I love the addition of the shredded coconut sprinkled around the mochi.
Overall it was quite good...my only complaint about it is that I did not like the addition of the sugar in the filling, I felt it was unnecessary. It made the mochi taste even more sweet than it needed to be.

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
