Finally able to read (something) in Japanese

I’ve been learning hiragana in my beginning Japanese studies. Unfortunately, it is going really slooowly. On the other hand, it is so much fun when I can actually identify characters. As was the case when I saw this:

And I immediately identified the characters “mo” and “chi.” Which made me really happy because I had been having problems remembering what “chi” looked like. Typically I don’t think I’d know what the actual meaning of any Japanese words are since I’m just learning to read. But, in this case, I know “mochi” because it’s also a common snack in Taiwan. So I bought the box. Yum! Nom nom.
