Daifuku is a popular Japanese confection that has mochi (rice cake) skin wrapping around sweet filling. The cakes are usually rolled in starch to keep them from sticking to your fingers or to each other.
The most common filling used in daifuku is the anko (red bean paste). Others include strawberry, Japanese apricot, caramel, chestnut, coffee, and many more.
This likeable food is a fail-safe edible gift, even those who haven’t tasted daifuku before will surely like it.
