Hello! It’s time for another DIY Candy Kit. I hope you all enjoy reading them as much as I like making them. Today I will be sharing with you the Coris Horadekita Candy Apple DIY Kit.
Coris Horadekita Candy Apple DIY Kit
£1.92 – OyatsuCafe
Yet another item that has come into my life through an OyatsuBox; they’re the boxes that just keep on giving aren’t they *chuckles to self* If you are having some deja vu here, it is because this DIY kit is virtually identical to the Coris Horadekita DIY Candy Kit – Chocolate Banana kit that I have tried in the past. No water, no microwaves, no stress – simply dip an “apple” into the sauce and sprinkles for a candy apple treat.
Once again, you receive a simple plastic tray, with the apples, syrup and sprinkles. The apples were loose, but seeing as the packet is well sealed I didn’t have any concerns about freshness. The syrup and sprinkles are packaged separately in two clear packets. You also receive a skewer to help you dip your apple into the syrup. Unlike the Chocolate Banana kit, this skewer is actually handy. You will end up making a right mess otherwise!
Step 1! Empty the syrup and sprinkles into their sections in the plastic tray. Whilst I didn’t have a problem with the sprinkles, the syrup was sticky and quite messy. Do you see why the skewer is so important now? Do not lose it, or you shall be cursed with sticky fingers for the rest of your life… (or until you wash them…)
Step 2! Take a candy apple on to the stick, and dip it/dunk it into the syrup.
Step 3! Dip your candy apple into the sprinkles… and enjoy!
The Internet states that the syrup was apple flavoured but for me personally it had a simple sweet taste; similar to the syrups you have with ice cream. The sprinkles worked well with the smoothness of the syrup, adding a crunchy top to the candy apple. The apple, on the other hand, mystified me. I thought it was a typical bonbon at first, but it wasn’t hard. It was very soft and chewy; the texture reminded me of bubblegum. It had a sweet apple taste, and perhaps this is why the syrup didn’t particularly stand out to me. Whatever the apple is… it’s nice! I think I could have eaten a bag of them on their own!
This kit is ideal for those who haven’t tried a DIY candy kit before. In my mind, this kit has earned the title of “easiest DIY kit ever”. Seriously, you barely need to follow the ~official~ instructions, it’s that simple. I can imagine that this kit is very high in sugar, so be careful if you are sensitive to sugar or are giving this kit to young children.
Whilst I enjoyed this kit, I wouldn’t buy it again. I prefer ones that require a little bit more effort on my part; the ones that get the few brain cells of mine working! It’s a good job I have plenty more kits to get stuck into…
Would you give this DIY candy kit a go?
