Ok, we’re far too excited to do these kits. Holy smokes! Even if they don’t taste the best (actually, they don’t taste good at all) it’s still loads of fun making stuff. WE LOVE MAKING STUFF. OH MAN! I just thought of an idea: people love Legos because you can make stuff out of Legos. People love Popin Cookin kits because you can eat what you make. What if they made edible legos, so that you can just stack together your meal? THAT’D BE SO COOL! Except, it can’t be that all of the Legos are the same hard brick texture, because that would be boring. You’d need soft Legos, hard Legos, and everything in between. Different textures and flavors, and you can build your own snack. I think I just stumbled on a billion dollar industry, guise. You heard it here first. If you need more billion dollar ideas, I’ve got them, including a “clean your bowl with bread” restaurant :D
Anyhow, if you remember what our first Popin Cookin video was like, then you might notice a difference between our approach in this one: we’re a lot more cautious. The water measurements have to be precise, and have to be stirred very thoroughly, or else you end up with grainy candy, and that’s unpleasant. Though, being thorough here didn’t really change the pleasantness of the taste in this one. It really tasted like Pepto Bismol Toothpaste. Not…enjoyable. But it was pretty, at least, and so that made us like it more than we otherwise would have.
Otherwise, there are loads more Popin Cooking sets, and I’m sure we’re gonna try them out, because they’re freaking fun to do. Only if we had fine motor skills: we’d be able to do these so much better. But also the fact that we don’t have fine motor skills makes the experience more enjoyable. If we did it all straightforward then that wouldn’t be fun. Surgeons would be the boringest at making these. Pfft!
We found this while we were shopping at one of the Home Pluses close to us, but only one of them has them, while the other doesn’t, so I wouldn’t say that it’s all too consistent. But if you’re not in Korea, and if you’d like to try one of these out yourself, you can pick it up at Gmarket.
