    Ever saw animes where characters pound mochi and you wanted to eat that ?

    But did you know that mochi / rice cakes can kill ? Making you choke on them and you suffocate if you didn't chew a lot ?
    There are always some kills in japan because of that. Despite never ever tasting mochi in my life it scared the shit out of me because i thought i could have happened to me who don't chew a lot.

    In short, the part in Daily lives of highschool boys where they choke on mochi really can happen.

    I've known about it.
    A kancolle joke was made about it... Akagi swallowed the entire mochi and nearly died of choking. Also Akagi not recognizing mothballs and thought it was mochi on the ground.

    Guess I'll have to eat a lot of mochi...










    (to get the technique down so I don't choke on it like I do with water)

    I guess they should put warnings on every place that sells food: Chew your food, not be chewed by your food. :blobsleepless:

    Well I mean it wouldn’t even be the worst way to go tho....but anyways, mochi is really tasty! Just make sure to take small bites & chew it thoroughly I guess...don’t forget to savor every bite!
    Oh also the practice of pounding mochi is pretty dangerous too I think...

    To be fair I had a cousin almost pass out from choking on their own spit.... So it can happen to anyone I guess?

    I mean I ate mochi a few times. I can't even imagine trying to swallow it immediately without throughly chewing, your instincts send very clear signs that this shit will kill you if it clogs your throat

    I like mochi, it's sweet and yummy. But yeah, you have to really chew it before you gulp it down... I felt like on the edge of my life once the mochi stuck at my throat... :blob_teary:

    People choke on water or air. I see no problem. Just eat properly.
