Coris Horadekita DIY Candy Kit – Chocolate Banana

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello! I was feeling quite brave today and I decided to finally try a Japanese DIY candy kit.  It was difficult trying to choose one from my ever growing stash, but for my first attempt the Coris Horadekita DIY Candy Kit – Choco Banana was the best choice.

Coris Horadekita DIY Candy Kit – Chocolate Banana

$2.99 – OyatsuCafe

I originally received this adorable little kit in my September OyatsuBox.   I decided to try this particular kit as it seemed to be pretty much foolproof, or should I say, Dannie-proof *wink wink*.  No microwaves or wizardry required, the instructions are simple.  Take a candy banana, dip it into chocolate, and then dip it again into sprinkles.  Even I couldn’t mess this up!

Upon removing the quirky outer packaging, you are greeted with a simple and basic plastic tray.   You can immediately smell the foam bananas and I have to say, it gets you excited to start playing around and, most importantly might I add, munching.  The chocolate sauce is the blue sachet you can see above, and the sprinkles are packaged safely underneath.   You also receive one small stick to use, but to be honest it’s not needed.  The bananas are big enough to be held with your fingers without making a mess.

Step 1! Open up the packets containing the chocolate sauce and sprinkles and pour them into the little sections in the plastic tray.  I found the chocolate sauce to be more of a chocolate paste if I’m honest; it reminded me of squeezing ketchup out of a sachet.  If I were to try this kit again, I would try to warm up the paste beforehand to make it more gooey.  I had to squish, prod and stir the paste around the tray to make it ready for dipping (and suitable for photographs!).

Step 2! Take a foam banana on to your tiny stick and dip it into the chocolate.  It was hard trying to place the foam banana on to the stick; it gave me a good fight!  Like I said above, the stick really isn’t needed, and I discarded it once I had taken this photo.

Step 3! Dip your chocolate covered banana into the sprinkles and enjoy!

I think that this kit was an ideal choice for my first attempt with a DIY candy kit.  It was so easy to follow.  I didn’t need to Google the instructions or have a small mental breakdown because I can only read a small portion of Japanese (understanding what it means is another game entirely!).  The pictures on the outer packaging were all that I needed, and now that I think about it, the kit is simple to understand without any formal instructions.  What else would you do with some foam bananas, chocolate sauce and sprinkles?

The foam bananas were chewy and the taste was the typical banana sweet taste, if not a touch more sweeter then usual.  The chocolate paste wasn’t as rich in taste as I would have liked, but I personally think that the chocolate is there to compliment the banana taste, not to overpower or compete with it.  The sprinkles added texture and crunch to an otherwise smooth treat.

I had a lot of fun with the Coris Horadekita DIY Candy Kit; so did my tastebuds!  Whilst I am relatively new to the world of DIY candy kits, this one is already one of my favourites.  I would buy this particular set again in the future, but it would probably be after I’ve tried every DIY candy kit I could get my grubby little hands on.  It’s for the blog after all!

Have you ever tried a Japanese DIY candy kit?  Do you have any recommendations for me?  If you haven’t, would you ever try one?

    I first tried the Meiji Strawberry Apollo DIY Chocolate Kit from tofucute which was really fun to do, one you really should try is the Popin’ Cookin’ Happy Kitchen Kit – Burger. I’ve never actually tried it but it’s in popular demand and I’ve seen a few tutorials on it. :)
