Just eat less meat people seriously, I’m not telling everyone to go vegan or go veggie, just cut down on meat. Don’t eat it everyday. It’s better for you and it’s better for the environment. You don’t need to be ellen degeneres but you do need to be bill maher.
This is もちアイス (mochiaisu) and the “soft skin” is pounded rice cake. The white stuff you see on the outside is powdered sugar so they won’t get sticky. It’s very delicious on a hot day and you can get these at the right self-serve frozen yogurt joints. Unfortunately North America sells one mochiaisu for a dollar and some cents whereas in Japan you can get these by the boxful in any supermarket.
