This one has been something we’ve been looking to do for a while, and it was SO MUCH FUN. Oh my gosh, I can’t even tell you how much fun. I get a Kawaii Box every month which is full of lots of exciting things, and I’ve now received a couple of these Poppin’ Cookin’ DIY candy kits. You do have to be careful as not all of them are suitable for vegetarians, but the DIY gummies are according to English translations I’ve seen.
I love this idea of making sweets for yourself, as it adds a great new element of fun. I’ll be honest, these gummies didn’t taste all that good. They were hugely fun to make and decorate, however, and they look fantastic. It’s more about the experience than the taste, so it doesn’t matter so much. Like little kids, we also tried drinking the colouring from the pipette, and that tastes fine haha!
If you have this kit yourself and need English instructions, you will find them here. I definitely recommend having a look because I’m not sure you would figure out how to get this right just by guesswork. Once you know what you are doing, however, it’s really easy. You just have to be a bit careful with the pipette so you don’t spray droplets into the gummy mix when you don’t mean to. Watch us give it a try here:
I really didn’t want to eat my beautiful rainbow snowflake but in the end I just had to! So much fun and I will definitely be trying one of these Poppin’ Cookin’ kits again if the opportunity arises.
