Taiwan is the latest country to be added to our growing list of destinations. This makes the 28th country for World of Snacks to sample treats from. Our goal is to locate the very best candy, cookies, chocolates, gummies, and cakes from all around the world. Once we find them, we will offer these international snacks for sale online in the US with shipping to pretty much everywhere. On January 1st we will officially launch our foreign snack store and at that time we will be stocking snacks from England. After that, every month we will add a new country to our store and of course restock our inventory for all countries offered. Now on with the review!
The snack going under review today is produced by a company called Choice Finee, Inc and they have offices in both the US and Taiwan. With a strong US base I suspect this treat may not be a truly authentic Taiwanese snack. Instead I feel it may be made for the US market. We’ve run into this once before with Eiffel Bon Bon’s. Also the company’s slogan is “New and innovative products for desserts and specialty drinks.” So, this may not be a snack at all. It may just be a desert toping! Lets take a look at Rainbow Mochi from Taiwan and see what we can find out.
Our Rainbow Mochi comes in a light blue package and reads Mochi, Crafted with Korean Formula. There are two playful child-like cartoons, one with a hammer, and a clear heart shaped window with some foreign writing. Sadly I am not sure what it reads. Inside you can see a ton of the Mochi in a variety of colors, in fact a rainbow of colors. There is also a partition breaking this 10oz snacks into three sections.
At the start of our taste test of the Rainbow Mochi from Taiwan, our testers were still unsure of exactly what Mochi was. We dove in anyway! Rainbow Mochi taste like very fruity small marshmallows. They almost have a fluffy soft gum consistency, so we could tell they were not actual marshmallows. All testers involved did like the treat, but we are not sure if it can stand on it’s own. That brings us back to the feeling that Mochi is a topping of some sort. After a little more research, we did confirm our suspicions. Mochi is often put on ice cream and used as an ingredient in other snacks. Also interesting side note, this snack that reads Korean formula and is made in Taiwan, is really a Japanese treat!
Will World of Snacks stock this mystery of a desert topping (or ingredient) in our online snack store? No, Rainbow Mochi from Taiwan will not be offered for sale, unless we find a true authentic version from one of the countries in question.

On our search to find the best snacks in the world and eventually offer them available for purchase with international shipping we have sampled a variety of unique items. Our last snack review took us to the Philippines and we tasted a spicy chip known as Oishi Prawn Crackers. Today we are investigation a sweet snack from Taiwan or officially the Republic of China (ROC).
Our Taiwanese snack comes from the Jin Jin brand, which from what we can determine is owned by Jellico Food Company. Jellico intruded themselves nearly 20 years ago with fruit jelly, or mini fruit gels as they are best known. In addition to mini fruit gels Jin Jin, also offers creamy ice bars. Our review today is for the Jin Jin Mango Coconut Jelly snacks.
Will World of Snacks stock Jin Jin Mango Coconut Jelly when we launch our international snack store early next year? We are pretty confident this snack will be a part of our normal inventory, although we are not 100% sure to classify this tasty treat as Taiwanese or Chinese. If you’d like a special coupon and to be notified when our online snack store launches be sure to leave us your details.
