Aka Daifuku

I think I'm craving for mochi that's why I brought this aka (red) daifuku last time I was at the Japanese foodshop. Daifuku literally means great luck...but of course I don't buy this for that. I'm never a believer of luck, whether bad or good. 

Daifuku is a type of Japanese cake made of glutinous rice flour, it is somewhat the same as mochi only with filling. This daifuku I got has anko (sweet azuki bean paste) filling.

Though called "red" - it only refers to the azuki beans, the mochi itseld is a lovely pink.
