Popin’ Cookin’ series takes quit a bit of determination to get your sweets.
How many American kids are going to be willing to Make their own gummies?
For that Matter, how many parents would let them make the mess in the process?
Well, I’m glad I am an adult, and I am glad that I can make a mess without getting in trouble! Because in this package we have a lot of powders, and water, and sticky goo (though it’s only gooey when you mess up!).
Introducing…. Oekaki Gummy Land!
You would think it would be really complicated to make gummy candies; however, this kit makes it pretty easy, and quite a bit fun! The instructions are pictured on the back, so you don’t really need a translation.
You start of with the basic primary colors: red, blue, and yellow, and then you mix them in the ‘starter’ cups with a bit of water to the the line in the cup. You also put the ‘gummy nomoto’ in the main container and sweep it as flat as possible, but keep it dry!
Once you have your primary colors you use the palette cups to mix the colors to what ever shade you want! Becareful though, these colors aren’t just colors, they are flavors. Red is grape, Yellow is lemon, and Blue is soda. When mixed the instructions say that you can make lemon soda, grape soda, and……orange? That’s right, grape and lemon make orange flavor… I’m still trying to figure that one out.
Once you have the colors you want, place one of the shapes into the Gummy nomoto and start adding your flavors to it!
After it sets for a bit (it gets slightly less wet looking) you can pop it out and enjoy!
Each set comes with different shapes as well! The package has examples of dolphins, shooting stars, houses, a bunny, and more…
Some how I ended up with a giraffe….
But as with all good things, they must come to an end…. a sticky wet messy end! But it was well worth the time, and quite fun!
