Popin'Cookin'



I went to Marukai today, and besides being reminded that I haven't blogged about the wonder that is Marukai yet, I found this really awesome candy from Japan! They're called "Popin' Cookin'" and they are basically little candy doughs that you form into more familiar food shapes, such as pizza, burgers, pies, cakes and even little sushi! Half the fun of this candy is in making it yourself; you roll, mix, blend, color, shape, scrape, etc and use your imagination and creativity to make a delicious sweet treat!

This picture shows how to make the kobbiko (roe) for the sushi set... isn't it neat? And I bet you thought eating candy was simple! The picture is from this blog, which has a really good write up and actual review of the candy.



The candy is manufactured by a company called Kracie which makes beauty products as well; I used google to translate their website for the candy and it was pretty hilarious! This is what it came up with:

Bloody murder paste? Haha! I never knew bloody murder paste tasted like sweet sweet candy!
