見だいふく,  ゆきみだいふく
Yukimi Daifuku (Japanese: 雪見だいふく "snow-viewing daifuku") - A brand of mochi ice cream manufactured by the Japanese/Korean company Lotte. It consists of a ball of vanilla ice cream wrapped in a thin layer of mochi, or rice cake. Lotte originally created Wataboshi (Japanese: わたぼうし "cotton hat or capped with snow"), a bite-size ice cream wrapped in a thin layer of marshmallow in 1980. Marshmallow was quickly replaced by mochi because it is more popular in Japan and the company perfected a technology to keep mochi soft at freezing temperature in 1981.

It comes in three sizes: a carton containing two pieces of ice cream, with a plastic pick for eating it; a "mini yukimi daifuku" box with nine smaller ice creams; and "yukimi daifuku petit three colour box" (雪見だいふくプチ3色) containing three kinds, a green tea ice cream, a chocolate ice cream, and a vanilla ice cream.

In the hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season, a seasonal variety with strawberry ice cream is sold.
