What is mochi?

PUMPKIN PIE…BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT…

LITTLE MOONS LAUNCHES UK’S FIRST SPICED PUMPKIN PIE MOCHI ICE CREAM FOR HALLOWEEN & THANKSGIVING

Launching in October, the Spiced Pumpkin Pie edition will be available exclusively at the Little Moons mochi ice cream bar at Whole Foods Market stores across London (High Street Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Fulham, Richmond and Clapham Junction).

Mochi is a Japanese delicacy where it has been enjoyed for thousands of years. Traditional mochi is filled with red bean paste, however, Little Moons have innovated the concept by combining delicious gelato spheres made from British dairy and wrapping them with sweet, soft mochi dough.

This new edition has taken inspiration from the classic transatlantic dessert, the pumpkin pie. The gelato and mochi is made by combining real pumpkin with an autumnal spice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger to produce a scrumptious seasonal treat.

The delicious taste, special consistency and colourful appearance makes Little Moons mochi a unique and indulgent gelato experience. Gluten-free and less than 100 calories each, they are the perfect bite-sized treat; ideal as a snack or as an after dinner reward for those looking for some measured indulgence.

The Spiced Pumpkin Pie edition can be found at the self-serve mochi ice cream bar at Whole Foods Market stores in High Street Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Fulham, Richmond and Clapham Junction and also the Mochi Pop bar at the High Street Kensington branch.

Visitors can choose to take home their own assortment of Little Moons mochi ice cream spheres in a freezer bag box at the self-serve station or head to the dedicated bar (at High Street Kensington) to create their own Little Moons ‘Mochi Pop’, a skewered stack of prettily coloured spheres of mochi ice cream designed to be enjoyed immediately.

Guests will be able to enjoy a range of innovative Little Moons varieties, mixing and matching them to create their own exciting flavour combinations: Matcha Green Tea, Toasted Sesame, Coconut, Raspberry, Yuzu, Vanilla, Mango, Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Hazelnut and now Pumpkin Pie.

At the Little Moons mochi ice cream bar, a selection of one to five delicious mochi spheres cost £1.50 each and six or more cost £1.25 each.

Little Moons launched a retail range in August 2015 at Whole Foods Market and has since become one of Whole Food Market’s best-selling ice cream brands. Still available in a six sphere pack in Whole Foods Market (£5.99) is Toasted Sesame, Vanilla, Coconut, Matcha Green Tea, Mango and Raspberry flavours. Little Moons Mango, Matcha Green Tea, and Coconut flavours are also available nationwide at Ocado with an RRP of £4.99 and Little Moons Matcha Green Tea and Mango are available at Waitrose with a RRP of £4.99.

Little Moons require no preparation before consumption and are best savoured one bite at a time after removing from the freezer for three to five minutes to allow the mochi to soften.

Want to know more about the brand?

Little Moons was founded by brother and sister entrepreneurs, Howard and Vivien Wong. Coming from a family of expert patissiers, the Wong family has been making traditional mochi for the past 30 years for the Asian grocery market and the pair bought this inherent craft and quality to produce beautiful mochi desserts.

Howard and Vivien Wong spent two years perfecting the complex and technical process of making mochi, developing their products alongside Nobu’s head patisserie chef, Regis Cursan to create big indulgence in a miniature form. Every mochi sphere is hand-rolled in London.


From Bone Daddies to Tonkotsu and Shoryu Ramen, Little Moons can be found on the dessert menus of London’s leading Japanese restaurants. Little Moons also became the first mochi brand to be available to buy nationwide in the UK in 2016 through its launch into Ocado and it is the number one selling new ice cream brand in Whole Foods Market.
