This is not a sponsored review and because of this I won’t mention where I bought this set, if you do an online search using the name of this kit you’ll be able to find this one in several webshops.
Meigum – Tsukuru Gaburichuu – Simple
Price: ± €6
Extra supplies: Scissors, Knife
With this kit you create adorable edible 3D characters, out of pink, greyish blue, yellow and white pieces of candy, which characters you create depend on which version of the set you buy. I had version 6. This is a set that’ll keep you occupied for quite a while. I think it kept me busy for about half an hour.
The kit is pretty easy to make, although the candy is a little sticky and hard to knead. It was a fun kit to do.
The final product looks pretty nice, but not entirely like the packaging. Putting the pieces together without them losing their shape a little is harder than I initially thought it’d be. Mixing the colours wasn’t very easy either and didn’t entirely work out.
All the colours of candy tasted practically the same. They all had a little bit of a lemon flavour and the texture reminded me of Fruit-tella, just a little harder. They tasted sweet, but definitely not too sweet.
TIP: Make sure to wash and dry your hands well before you start, to prevent leaving dust in the candies.
Want to enjoy this kit again?
Clean the mould with warm water, after using it, and let it air dry.
If you want to reuse the mould you could shape a little piece of fondant or marzipan in it. You could also buy chewing candy, like Fruit-tella, soften these a little by putting them in the microwave for a short period of time, and then knead these and press them into the mould. This way you can make candies, but also decorations for on a cake or something like that.
