It’s no wonder Japan is a nation of foodies when they begin culinary pursuits at such an early age. Kids’ make-your-own-candy sets allow them to be the owner of a sushi shop, ice-cream parlor, fast-food restaurant, bento store… Just mix the sachets inside with a little water and they become a sweeter, more edible version of play dough. I love the hamburger set, where you can make your own ‘french fries’ and ‘nuggets’.

    Hi Momo Chan, thanks for your lovely comment :)
    Actually I’m not totally sure what they were made of but I think it was just sugar and flavourings and colourings? The flavours tasted pretty artificial. I made the sushi ones and they just tasted like candy.
