Welcome to Part 1 one of ‘Meccha Oishii Japanese Candy Adventures’ めっちゃ美味しい日本のお菓子冒険者
Japanese candy has always been a mysterious and intriguing thing to me having seen many of them on the interwebs over the years as ordering them abroad is fairly cost prohibitive.
Alas now that I have arrived in the orient former barriers to deliciousness have been lifted so I intend to spend the next few months sampling and reviewing the plethora of candy mini meal sets on offer.
So what is Popin’ Cookin’? Basically fun interactive candy kits that let you make your own mini gummy that look like food!!
Next were onto the gyoza so take your candy dough, cut it in half then roll each piece out into as flat a circle as you can manage!
Once their flat as pancakes, take the 100’s n’ 1000’s type filling and place it in the centre of both you gyoza skins
allowing enough room round the edges to seal it up.
Andddddd that’s pretty much it, display them however you like, just make sure to get your nom on caz they are fair tasty.
The most surprising thing about this kit for me personally would have to the fact that the ramen was not candy, but instead emulated real ramen in terms of taste and texture.
All in all for my first time dabbling in the world of Japanese candy I found the whole experience to be quite fun and ingenious, of there all this good I’ll be wasting a lot of money on this stuff in the future.
