As a busy working mom, I am always looking for quick and easy snack options for my children. The grilled rice balls by Nissui are my go-to snack which the kids love. The rice balls have a soy sauce flavoring and come 6 to a pack. It’s very easy to make – you just put one in the microwave for 2 minutes and then it’s done. You can find them in the frozen aisle at Nijiya Japanese Food Market and the rice balls sell for $5.99 which means each rice ball is roughly $1. Sometimes, the rice balls go on sale for $3.99 and that is when I stock up! You can eat with or without nori (seaweed).
For more information on Nissui, go to their corporate website.
