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 – Hamburger kit – Elaborate
Price: ± €4
Extra supplies: Microwave, Glass, Water, Scissors, Scotch Tape, Cocktail Picks, Optional: Sharp Knife.
Most of the Popin Cookin kits have English instructions, which you can find here.
With this kit you create two hamburgers, French fries and a cup of cola. Using the packaging you can create two little flags as well to stick in the hamburgers, a bag for the French fries and a wrapper for the cup. Part of the packaging can also serve as a ‘tray’.
I honestly didn’t like most of the flavours in this kit. I did like the cola, which tasted like cola, and the French fries which I overcooked a little, they tasted like salty potatoes. The ketchup also tasted as you’d expect it to.
The hamburger meat tasted salty and meaty, but not specifically like hamburger to me. The cheese texture was a bit too mushy for my taste and it didn’t have a lot of flavour to it. Neither did the bread, which was airy but dry.
I really didn’t like the hamburgers, they didn’t taste like hamburgers and I didn’t like the flavours, but I did enjoy making the kit.
Time needed: ⧗⧗
This kit has quite a few steps so it does take a little bit of time, but you don’t have to wait much during the making of this kit.
Difficulty level: ★★
The steps you need to take to make this kit aren’t very hard, but there are a lot of steps to this kit.
Depending on how careful you are when cutting the buns and the burgers the end result will look pretty similar to the image on the packaging. The bread and fries do look a little different in texture though and the buns are less rounded on top.
TIP: Use a sharp knife to cut the buns and hamburgers.
Want to enjoy this kit again?
Clean the mould with warm water, after using it, and let it air dry. Don’t use soap to clean the mould.
If you want to reuse the moulds you could create more French fries, hamburgers, cheese and buns using knead able candies or something similar. The cola can be replaced by actual cola and the ketchup by strawberry sauce.
