#4 Dango

Dango is similar to mochi in that it is made from rice flour. However, it doesn’t usually have a filling in the middle because it is eaten on a skewer.

Pictured above is just some plain and simple dango I had brought from the combini. It tasted sweet and chewy, a combination that almost always leads to sickness (the good sugary kind) after more than a few bites.

You can also buy types that are covered in various sweet sauces, most commonly a kind of runny adzuki bean paste.

So dango are dirt cheap, and make a quick, filling and energizing snack, a perfect small dessert to get you through the rest of the day!
