Tonight I tried the Poppin’ Cookin bento set. It’s a DIY candyby Kracie meant to look like a Japanese bento lunch.
As is pretty common with these, there’s a bit of work that goes into it. This kit had seven coloured powders that you mix with water to make the parts, then assembly. It actually took about 15 minutes not including putting together the display that’s assembled from the wrapper (*´∇｀*). It was a labor of love though since I really enjoy putting them together.
It turned out pretty cute too (even though it’s not exactly like the picture)
Now the taste. It’s bad. The noodles were my favorite since they were peach, but they had unusual texture that was weird to me. The rice balls were bland and only got taste from the black ‘nori’ which wasn’t enough to make them good. The meatballs were the same, bland. And the broccoli, egg and octopus hot dog all had a good flavour, but they were slimy and weird (the little octopus was cute though)
Still, that being said, I would totally reccomend this kit. The DIY candies aren’t about taste, they’re about the fun of making it yourself and this certainly delivered on that front. It was a joy to put together and even without English instructions I was able to do it. Give it a try if you get the chance!♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪
Have you tried any DIY candy kits? Any requests for future ones?
