Food question - are other forms of mochi like this one?

This was the type and brand of mochi I tried. I think I finally got used to the rubbery feel - any suggestions what to try next that builds on this success??

I am not having any luck with images so here is the link to the pics of what I tried (it was mango flavored):

I am not familiar with that brand, but if you like the combination of mochi and fruit you might look out for ichigo daifuku (a fresh strawberry encased in an (sweet azuki bean paste) wrapped in mochi. The brand you have looks Chinese, not Japanese to me for what it's worth.

Yukimi daifuku - mochi with vanilla ice cream filling - is universally popular. Look for it in the freezer section of a decent sized Japanese grocery store.

Here is a deconstructed version of ichigo daifuku with ice cream - it is for hot weather though.

Unfortunately, your chances of finding this outside of Japan are exceedingly slim, but my recommendation for you would be

Mochi Cream

There are Mochi Cream shops all over Tokyo and other Japanese cities. They're kept frozen but aren't ice-cream and come in a wide range of flavours, many of them fruit flavoured. Some people like to eat them when they are still frozen, others prefer to wait until they've thawed. It comes to personal preference at how cold/cool they should be. I absolutely love them!

With the ice-cream mochi Maki mentioned, you need excellently maintained teeth to really enjoy these!
