Stores selling Japanese donut-mochi hybrid will soon triple in New Jersey

Defining its namesake product as a Hawaiian creation fusing American doughnuts with Japanese mochi in a unique eight-point shape, Mochinut is currently open in six New Jersey municipalities.

The chain is set to add 12 more locations to that list, led by a slated opening in Cherry Hill on Oct. 17, its first store in South Jersey, according to

The Mochinut website said the other new stores are planned for Edison, Hoboken, Jersey City, Lodi, Manalapan, Nutley, Palisades Park, Parsippany, Princeton, Ridgefield and Voorhees.

Existing locations are in Fort Lee, Montclair, Norwood, Paramus, Summit and Tenafly.

Opening dates for the new Mochinuts have not been announced, with the exception of Cherry Hill.

Mochinut says his donuts are “completely different from yeast or cake donuts” due to the inclusion of rice flour, which makes them chewy, stretchy and sticky.

The chain also sells hot dogs covered in Korean rice flour and an assortment of toppings, as well as bubble tea or “boba”.
