What is Popin' Cookin'?
Popin' Cookin' DIY Candy
Popin' Cookin' is a series of Do-It-Yourself candy kits by the Japanese manufacturer Kracie. To make the gummy sweets you mix special powders with water and let the mixture dry in special molds. So you can create the craziest shapes and have gummy candy that looks like mini sushi, hamburgers or Ramen soup, but tastes like candy. It is fully edible and suitable for children.
Especially in Japan Popin' Cookin' is super popular among children and teenagers. One trend is to film yourself while making the Popin' Cookin' and upload your video on YouTube. There are already hundreds of different Popin' Cookin' videos, which also work as instructions. This is very handy for people who don't speak Japanese, as the instructions on the package are in Japanese only.

Popin' Cookin' is a great DIY activity for the whole family
Japanese Popin' Cookin' kits are a fun activity to do with children and teenagers. The sets already contain the different powders, molds and accessories needed to make the candies depicted. The only thing you have to provide yourself is some water and a table. Some sets also require a microwave oven.
It is easy to follow the picture instructions on the package or to watch one of the instruction videos on the internet. Popin' Cookin's can be a live demonstration of chemistry with an educational effect, as kids see the reaction between powder and water, the change of consistency and colour.
It is also a lot of fun to try the different candies once they are made.
