This is not a sponsored review and because of this I won’t mention where I bought this set, if you do an online search using the name of this kit you’ll be able to find this one in several webshops.
Popin Cookin – Omatsuriyasan – Elaborate
Price: ± €6
Extra supplies: Scissors, Scotch Tape, Water, Optional: Small Knife
Most of the Popin Cookin kits have English instructions, which you can find here.
With this kit you create Matsuri, Japanese local festival, candies. You’ll create bananas with chocolate sauce, candied apples, fries and corn on the cob. From the package you can also create a bag for the fries. In total I think it took me half an hour, at most, to create all the parts of this set.
The kit is very elaborate and has several parts to it. It was a fun kit to do and a fun theme for a kit to have.
The final product looks very fun and detailed. The different parts turned out well, although the corn on the cob didn’t turn out entirely as I’d liked. The candied apples were also a little different than shown on the package, they didn’t turn out as flat on top.
All the parts of his set had their own flavour to them. The fries tasted like apple, just like in the Okosama Lunch kit from Popin Cookin. The corn on the cob tasted like lemon, the orange and yellow balls were crunchy and didn’t have a very distinct flavour. The candied apples seemed to taste like strawberry, but it could’ve been cherry flavoured. The flavour of the bananas was a little hard to distinguished from the chocolate sauce, but it did taste a little like banana. The chocolate sauce was very tasty and tasted like a nice chocolate sauce.
Want to enjoy this kit again?
Clean the mould with warm water, after using it, and let it air dry.
If you want to reuse the mould you could make the candied apples with gelatine pudding or something similar. The corn on the cob you could make with a candy, like Fruit-tella, and with yellow and orange nonpareils. The bananas can be created with candies as well or with a firmed gelatine pudding. The fries can be made with different candies. The chocolate sauce can be replaced with cocoa powder mixed with milk, chocolate or just a chocolate sauce.
