CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - MAY 05: Doughnuts are sold at a Krispy Kreme store on May 05, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. The doughnut chain reported yesterday that it plans to take the company public again. The company was taken public in 2000 but struggled before being acquired by JAB Holding Company in 2016.

A specialty doughnut shop is opening new locations throughout New Jersey. According to their website ,Mochinut, popular for its combination of Japanese mochi and American doughnuts, will be making its way throughout the Garden State soon. Mochinut has six locations in New Jersey already based in Fort Lee, Norwood, Paramus, Summit, Montclair, and Tenafly. The company will open another location on Oct. 17 at 871 Cooper Landing Rd. in Cherry Hill.

The new locations will be in Edison, Hoboken, Jersey City, Lodi, Manalapan, Nutley, Palisades Park, Parsippany, Princeton, Ridgefield, and Voorhees Township. Mochinut has not released when the aforementioned locations will be open as of yet.

The main menu items that are offered at Mochinut are Mochi Donuts, Korean Rice Flour Hotdogs, and Bubble Tea Drinks. A Mochi donut is a dessert that originated in Hawaii and is a combination of American doughnuts and Japanese mochi. Mochinut is gaining popularity owing to its unique shape and texture; light crispy coating with a soft chewy inside.

Mochi Donuts are made with rice flour which is what makes the donuts stretchy and chewy. The Mochi Donut’s texture separates them from American donuts, which are usually made out of yeast or cake. They have become popular for their unique shape which is made up of a connected circle of 8 dough balls.

Mochinuts come in a variety of flavors, like strawberry, matcha, churro, coffee, and chocolate, and vary by location. Each location always has a “flavor of the day” so customers can choose the unique flavor for a limited time.

There are over 100 Mochinut locations nationwide.
