“It’s more of an activity than a candy set. In fact, this particular set isn’t actually “candy” at all. You’re making *real* burgers, bread, ketchup, soda and fries!”

“I say real, but of course it is just little miniature food items. You make them in the microwave after you combine the dry packets with water. The fun thing here is that I’m pretty sure it uses real food ingredients. For example, whenever I opened up the packet labeled “potato” (for the fries) it smelt like dehydrated potatoes. The hamburger packet also even had a little dehydrated onion in it, so it was full of usual hamburger spices.”




“The instructions are in Japanese, so you’ll probably need to watch a video to understand which packet goes with which product. Thankfully, I had my husband to read the packets for me. Honestly, though, you can probably open them up, sniff and figure it out. Also, some of it is simple – like the hamburger. The brown packet is obviously hamburger. The two orange, larger packets are the fries/bread. You can sniff them out to tell the difference. The fries smell like potatoes, as I mentioned before. :D One of the small red packets is ketchup – and believe me, it does smell strongly of ketchup! ^^”




“For the most part, though, you can use the visual clues on the back of the package. There is a little measuring spoon you cut off and there are numbers telling you how many spoons of water to mix with the packets. Very easy! There is some microwaving to be done, too, for the buns, burger and the fries. But the microwave job only takes a few seconds. If you make this, be sure to watch close as they cook really, really fast. (In only a few seconds – 10 to 15.)”




“My favorite thing to do in this kit was to make the cheese. No idea why, but I liked pressing down the cheese on the paper. Sadly, I couldn’t get it perfectly square. :(




“Also, to make the little wrappers, like the holder for the fries, you have to cut out little film pieces and tape them up. This isn’t difficult and there are visual instructions included.”


Overall, I’d definitely do this kit again. :D ! I’d probably not buy it again, until I have a child old enough to do it with, but it is a lot of fun, cute and somewhat tasty. Yes – it is edible! It does taste like hamburgers. The fries, well, don’t exactly taste like fries, but they do taste like potatoes. The soda is kinda intolerably sweet, but you could just add more water to remedy that problem. ^^ If you need help making this kit, check out YouTube videos for it! But really, it’s pretty simple. Afterall, it is targeted toward children! (And childish adults, such as I. :D )

Making Popin Cookin Donuts


When putting the dough into the “tin” to make the various designs, one way to check if it reaches the bottom is to look at it from the other side and see if the bottom makes contact when you press it. When you are trying to mix two different flavours, make sure you give additional attention to where the two flavours merge because I had a few times when I took them out, it fell apart as they didn’t merge together.


Chocolate Icing


To ensure that you don’t cut a huge hole in the piping bag, stick a toothpick through one corner! Perfect small hole. I would also suggest trimming back the additional plastic at the bottom next to the piping hole as it can smear your frosting.


Vanilla and Chocolate Icing


The toothpick comes in handy later when frosting too. The vanilla and strawberry frosting were thicker then the chocolate. One way I found to smooth it out like in the image, is to use some water (warm preferably) and wet the tip of the toothpick and use it to smooth it down. It still isn’t as smooth as the chocolate but it helps!

“When I opened the box is that the contents smelled “sweet.” Aside from the packets of powder, there is a little note warning that you should only use four cups (the plastic one they provide) of water when mixing the dough.  The cup  in this kit a bit smaller as well. There is a dent in the bottom of the tray where you mix the dough indicating how much water needs to be added.


Word of advice: while it is very tempting to add more water in as you’re mixing the dough as it seems like there isn’t enough water, trust in the instructions and keep going! I found using a “kneading” motion used for mixing dough extremely useful. Slowly, the power will mix with the dough and become workable.


The instructions say to prepare four dough balls each for vanilla and chocolate making eight in total. However, I was able to make three extra ones. The vanilla cake base smells very much like birthday cake and the chocolate smells like baked chocolate cake, both of them didn’t taste extremely like their name sake but there was a definite hint to it.


As for the frosting, the chocolate icing leaned more toward a dark chocolate flavour whereas, vanilla frosting tastes “sweet” and strawberry tastes like its name sake. When I was mixing, the positioning of the icing/frosting reminded me of Japanese snacks called “Yan Yan” I used to eat as a kid. As for decorating, the chocolate one was easiest to use. We are given two decorations, one is the colourful hard candy and the other is crispy bits, I think it uses the same flavouring as the donuts.

One thing I love about these about these kits is that they have multiple uses and I also like how the powders turn into different things even when they start off all the time. My over all impression of this was that this kit was extremely fun! I liked the decorating bit as well and recommend this kit to anyone who does. There wasn’t anything in this kit that was hard to do and generally everything tasted fine.”
