How ridiculous

How hard can it be to stock up on Mochiko rice flour? I don't get it, I go to the Albertson's in Bellingham, which is a pretty diverse neighborhood as it is, and they don't carry Mochiko Rice Flour?? They used to, and now no more. I'm starting to get really sick of going to a grocery store and finding they don't carry what I consider to be a common food staple! I don't necessarily have time to run to the one and only asian food market in downtown Bellingham, so I have to rely on the grocery stores.

All I can say is, I'm really shocked and rather annoyed that it's not carried anywhere local. Yes, it's at one local grocery store- for an exorbitant amount ($2.19 for a small box? Give me a break!).

I may just ask my mom to pick up some Mochiko and bring it up with her...sheesh!

How bad is this...I've never even heard of this staple. Hope you find some soon. What do you use it in?

Rice flour is typically gluten-free and some people use that instead of regular flour from what I know. Also, it is used in Asian cooking, and the area I went to look for it is pretty diverse which is why I was really shocked. I know they used to have it too. Weird, huh?
