Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi - Best Treat at Costco?
Tropical Fields Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea Mochi at Costco
Costco sells a 60-count of Tropical Fields Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea Mochi for $8.99. The Boba Milk Tea Mochi can be found in either the pantry and dry goods area or the snack area of the warehouse near other snacks like the Godiva Chocolate, Aussie Bites, and Peanut Brittle Bites.
These contain both tapioca balls and mochi, so I initially thought these would be in the frozen food aisles near either the boba popsicles or the mochi, but these don’t need to be refrigerated or frozen and are instead in Costco’s pantry and dry goods area or snack area.
Costco also sells an at-home boba milk tea drink set.
What Exactly Are Boba Milk Tea Mochis?
These boba milk tea mochis take the best of both worlds and are essentially a boba tapioca ball and mochi hybrid. Tropical Fields proclaims these boba milk tea mochi balls are:
“like a cloud, they’re soft & chewy,
in the middle they’re oh so gooey,
its center has a brown sugar flavor,
with a boba pearl inside to savor!””
I’m a big fan of boba tea and chewing on the little tapioca balls, and I love the texture of the sticky, soft, and stretchy mochi. Combined, these sound like an absolute dream snack.
Individually Wrapped for Convenience and Portion Control
I really appreciate that these Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochis are individually wrapped for two reasons.
First, they are convenient and easy to transport. I can grab one or two for the road without the need for any preparation or storage. They are nice to keep in a backpack anytime you might need a delicious pick me up.
The second and more important reason I like that these are individually wrapped is portion control. I would, without a doubt, destroy these Boba Milk Tea Mochis in just a few days if they weren’t individually wrapped and instead were all just in a larger bag.
There’s a little bit of work to get these open and A LOT of guilt when you see the graveyard of empty wrappers on your counter.
Costco Cost Comparison
How Much Do Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochis Cost?
The 60-pack of Boba Milk Tea Mochi balls sell for $8.99 at Costco. Each individual boba milk tea mochi costs $0.15, which is a fantastic price for this unique little treat.
It doesn’t appear that this particular brand of Boba Milk Tea Mochi is sold anywhere else at retail price. This is a Costco exclusive item!
Boba Milk Tea Mochi - Taste Test
I found these Boba Milk Mochi snacks to be quite tasty and fun to eat. The mochi dough has a nice chewy, slightly sticky feel, and the boba tapioca balls have their traditional gelatinous squishy texture.
As a whole, the boba mochi treat definitely does feel like a squishy pillow, and it has a great brown sugar flavor without being overrun with sweetness.
Room Temperature or Frozen?
There are two ways to eat the Boba Milk Tea Mochi Candies: at room temperature or cold. Both options are great, but I much prefer the frozen option.
When eating the brown sugar mochi at room temperature, the candy is very soft. The mochi dough is extremely squishy, chewy, and super easy to bite.
The boba and mochi does somewhat blend together and it was hard to differentiate between the two.
Frozen Boba Milk Tea Mochi from Costco
From frozen, the mochi exterior is much more firm but still chewy and very tasty. The flavors remain the same, but the boba and mochi texture is more enjoyable. The cold feel seems to fit both the boba tapioca balls and the mochi better.
I highly recommend freezing the boba mochi candy; you won’t be disappointed.
Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi Nutrition and Calories
Each Costco boba milk tea mochi will be one serving and have the following nutritional information:
- Calories: 53
- Total Fat: 1g (1%DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg
- Sodium: 5mg (0% DV)
- Total Carbohydrates: 11g (4% DV)
- Total Sugars: 3g
- Added Sugars: 3g (6% DV)
- Protein: 0g
Obviously, these are a sweet treat, and the nutritional profile and calorie count will represent that.
The 53 calories per boba milk tea mochi are considerable considering their size, and the 11 grams of carbs will make these quite unhealthy for you.
One thing I did notice was the 53 calories. Normally, most companies just round to the nearest multiple of 5, but I’m assuming Tropical Fields decided to be more precise with 53 calories rather than round up to 55.
These are rather small at half an ounce each, so do be mindful of the relatively high calorie count.
Boba Milk Tea Mochi Ingredient List
Warning: The following contains graphic content that may turn you off from eating these Costco boba mochi balls.
I always like to know what we are eating, and I’m looking for as many whole foods as possible. I know I’m not going to find that here with these Costco Brown Sugar Boba Mochis.
Depending on how long the ingredient list is, I like to sometimes type it to emphasize how healthy something from Costco may be, but I won’t be doing that for these mochi balls. There are just too many ingredients that I don’t know what they are, and I can’t even spell or say them. It isn’t pretty.
Costco Boba Milk Tea Mochi Review
Product Name: Tropical Fields Boba Milk Tea Mochi
Quantity: 60 Pieces
Location Within Costco: Pantry and Dry Goods
Price Per Piece: $0.15
These Boba Milk Tea Mochis are an awesome Costco snack. They are fairly priced, individually wrapped, fun to eat, and super tasty.
They are a nice little boba mochi snack, but nutritionally there is a lot to be desired, and the ingredient list is a disaster.
