[Video Link] My 7-year-old daughter and I had a great time making candy sushi from the $5 Popin' Cookin' sushi candy making kit. I made a video about it.
Wonderful! Domo, Mark-san.
That’s it! I’m ordering a couple of these.
This is pretty awesome!
I am, however, wondering how one popes while cooking…is that explained in the instructions? :P
Poping is a synonym for pontifficating ;-)
Awesome, thank you!
So, it’s “Pontificatin’/Cookin'”, then!
Looks pretty cool. Does it come with English instructions?
No, the instructions are Japanese only. But here is an English translation.
Woo, I just made this a couple weekends ago. It was fun. I just used the video and the drawings on the package for instructions.
You can get them on ebay.
Kind of reminds me of the candy kits Boomzilla buys in Gibson’s Idoru.
Looks cool, but what the heck is in that stuff? I followed the link, and there are instructions, but I don’t see anything that lists the ingredients. I don’t expect that its “healthy” which is fine, but would like to know what chemicals its made from before buying it. Any idea how to find out?
@Anon I guess xalcium lactate + alginate for the salmon roe, and agar as hardening agent for the egg/tuna thingy. And sugar + colorings + flavourings, of course. Dunno about the rice stuff.
Hey! my “Wonderful! Domo, Mark-san.” I came out as someone named “Anon”.
Jeez, why doesn’t my very smart computer take better care of me, and sign me in to the things I forget to sign into?
I can not get over how great the ” fish eggs ” look!
How did they Taste?
How dies it taste? What’s the texture like?
Grar – ‘does’, even.
I just went and bought one of each of their food kits. This looks like happy mutant fodder!
this is delightful I sent it to my brother in the hopes he buys a set for my God Daughter and Nephew but somewhat selfishly I want to thank you for this amazing song :)
let’s all keep praying for the good people of Japan….
i’m thinking grated coconut to do the rice, careful about the texture of the fillings, actually saw some english licorices that sushi made me think of.
Hahaha! That’s so cute. Your daughter is adorable too!
My girlfriend turned me on to the weirdly wonderful and fascinating world of konapun a while back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5ZOTIeOZS8
As a model maker, I love the process and think it’s hilarious how all the kitchen supplies are miniaturized. But it’s a bit of a waste because you can’t eat it and it doesn’t keep. So I guess it’s a sort of consumerist Zen practice?
But this seems to have solved the edibility problem. Definitely going to pick some up.
