Dango, similar to mochi, is a favorite snack in Japan. Dango are ball shaped mochi, made from mochiko. Two especially popular types of dango include mitarashi dango and anko dango. Mitarashi dango is dango flavored with syrup made from soy sauce, sugar, and starch. Anko dango is dango with sweetened red bean paste. Both of these dangos are stuck on skewers, often with 3 or 4 dangos each. Mitarashi dango and anko dango can be found more easily than any other type of dango in grocery stores and convenience stores. Hanami dango is another popular type of dango, most enjoyed during the spring time, for "hanami" means flower viewing. Hanami dango consists of three balls of dango in the colors pink, white, and green.
