Hello everyone! A really short and simple blog today, I'm going to look at the Japanese DIY kit "Hora Dekita! Choco Banana". The set is meant to make candy versions of the chocolate bananas regularly sold in Japan at festivals.

This is one of the more simple kits I've done and reviewed. You simply pin the banana on the skewer and dip into the two compartments.

The chocolate was a bit hard to work with, as it wasn't that liquid. I expected/hoped the consistency to be more like Nutella, but alas.

The sprinkles easily stick on the chocolate and make it look very cute!

Repeat this 5 more times for the other bananas and that's all there is to this kit!

The taste

I was really hoping the bananas of this set to taste a bit like Haribo Bananas (I love those things!):

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71aoxhKT-aL._SY355_.jpg

The banana taste however was a bit more bland. As for the chocolate, it also has a more bland chocolate taste than most other liquid-type chocolates I have tasted. The sprinkles were regular sugar, so not much to mention about.

So in conclusion, the taste was not bad at all, but I think if you would buy Haribo bananas (which already have sugar coating) and then dip them in chocolate bread spread, you are going to have a 10x better taste.

Recommendable?

It is fun, cute, easy to do and cheap. So it's definitely not a waste of money to get this set. Just dont expect and extraordinary taste or DIY experience!

Jaou (3 meses atrás) #36855168Interesting to see a review on such a thing here! Thank you for sharing :) I have tried a few of those kits before and they either taste horrible or bland from what I have came across, is that just me? They sure are fun to make and it's nice to know that there are more simple kits as well

I actually have quite a bunch of reviews like this on the rest of my blog profile/Maakie/... if you are also interested in reading those. Both of more simple and more extensive sets. :)

And yeah, my conclusion is the same at almost all of those kits their final score, tastes are on most of them rather bland or they are way too sugary that it hurts my teeth!

Anyway, my fun in making these lets me keep on buying ones I haven't tried before, although I know that in the end, I don't even eat everything of the set, lol! It's my curiousity and because I like fiddling with this stuff that lets me keep on 'wasting' my money on these. ;)

victorviper (3 meses atrás) #36800309A relatively simple kit compared to some of the others :).
I didn't know Haribo Bananas were a thing, as I'd never seen them before. I'm trying to cut back on sugar, but if I run across these somewhere, maybe I'll try some :).


True! This one feels rather aimed at kids or people that want to experience a DIY kit, but more simple and cheap. :)

Those bananas are very common to find in stores here in the Netherlands and Germany, but it could be that they are not as widely available in other countries. I hope you can find them, because I 100% recommend them! but with the high amount of sugar, they are so..so bad for you. ;)
