Japanese candy kit: Kuru Kuru Cake Shop

The Kuru Kuru Cake Shop kit from Meiji is one of the smaller (and much easier) of the Japanese candy kits. Kuru Kuru means to roll in Japanese and in this kit you get to roll your own gummy pastries! In this kit the pastry sheets are lemon flavour gummy, and the fillings are a mixture of peach and strawberry flavour gummies that are all sorts of pretty shapes.

I must admit I was a little disappointed the gummies weren't as vividly coloured as they are on the adorable packaging. Other than that I had fun rolling my pastries and trying different flavour combinations, but of course they kept unrolling when I tried to take pictures of them  -_- . The gummies were very nice and squidgy (squidge factor 10/10!) but the flavours were fairly subtle and surprisingly the one with the strongest flavour was peach. 

Overall a cute and fun little kit!

You can buy the Kuru Kuru Cake Shop candy kit here for £1.22 from Oyatsu Cafe!
