Candy Sushi! - Kracie Poppin' Cookin' Sushi Review

Kracie Poppin' Cookin' Sushi 
  You heard me right - Candy sushi!

I recently got an awesome package from  a very good friend of mine (thanks Dane!).  This box included a Kracie Poppin' Cookin' sushi kit, which was something that I've been DREAMING of for a very long time!  Basically this whole thing was a dream come true!

Kracie Poppin' Cookin' Sushi Opened 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the product, Poppin' Cookin' is a series of Japanese candy kits that allow you to create candies that look like real food!  Their kits range from making candy ramen and dumplings to candy curry.  From what I've heard, the curry kit actually tastes like curry!

For this kit, it included some foil packets, a spoon, water dropper, candy clay, and a plastic tray.  All of the instructions were in Japanese, but it's pretty easy to figure things out based on the pictures and Youtube videos demos done by other people.

Powder packets 

  Basically, the idea is to fill up the compartments up to the fill line with water, add the appropriate powder, and stir.  This created the rice, egg, tuna, and soy sauce.

Magical "rice"
Then rice!

The only thing that was different was the salmon roe.  For this part, the dropper was used to suck up the orange mixture (B) and drop it into the blue mixture (A).  This was like magic to me since it transformed from liquid to a solid!

First liquid....

..Then magically "roe"!
Ta-da!  Salmon roe!

After completing all the mixtures, you then assemble the sushi!

Candy sushi finished!

They all looked really pretty after putting them together, but now it's time to eat!

My mom and I were the only ones to eat it as my dad suddenly disappeared as soon as I suggested eating it.  The taste was ok....The overall taste was a cross between grape and bubble gum flavor.  The salmon roe was fun to eat since they popped in your mouth and had a juicy center.  However, the egg and tuna had a weird squishy texture.

Overall, it was VERY fun and I'd recommend it for the experience.  I think I'll be on the hunt for more Poppin' Cookin' kits in the future!
