I’m slowly reaching the end of my DIY candy kit stash, nooooo! *wails* I better reorder some more… *evil laugh* Today’s DIY Candy Kit I will be talking through with you is the Meito Hanakappa Awa Awa Jelly Grape DIY Candy Kit.
Meito Hanakappa Awa Awa Jelly Grape DIY Candy Kit
£2.77 – OyatsuCafe
I received the Meito Hanakappa Awa Awa Jelly Grape DIY Candy Kit in an OyatsuBox a very long time ago now. I feel ashamed I’ve had it for so long. *embarrassed face* For some reason, I thought it would be terribly difficult and kept putting it to the bottom of my “to review” list. However, after actually reading the instructions it is actually pretty simple. The aim of this DIY candy kit’s game is to make jelly. That’s all! What was I so worried about?
You will receive a plastic cup (a very cute cup, that is!) a plastic spoon and the powder required to make the jelly.
Step 1! Empty the purple sachet of powder into your cup.
Step 2! Add water to the powder, up to the pink line as indicated on the cup. The powder immediately reacts with the water and begins to foam up.
Step 3! Give the mixture a good stir for about 30 seconds. You will feel the mixture becoming thicker the more you stir. Then, take the cup and place it in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
Step 4! Take your jelly out of the fridge… and enjoy!
The jelly was grape flavoured, with a slightly fizzy taste. It was the typical synthetic grape taste I have come to expect with Japanese sweets. It could have been better tasting with a stronger grape taste as there were some times it tasted a bit too watery. Then again, as it is marketed at kids it can’t be too sweet (i.e. too sugary)! It was very soft in terms of consistency and I probably should have left it in the fridge for a bit longer (even though the official instructions say 5-10 minutes, I swear!). At the same time, the softness made it quite addictive to eat. It not only looked like bubbles, but it felt like that too.
This is definitely the most easiest DIY candy kit I’ve ever tried. It would be hard to mess it up! I suppose that also means its not that exciting and worthy of a repurchase. However, I think it would be worth buying again for the cute cup alone. I’m going to wash out this one and try my best to either reuse it or make it into something! It is far too cute to throw away. #hoarder
