Popin’ Cookin’ Donuts Review

A short while ago, I reviewed the Popin’ Cookin’ food kit called Sweets Party, in which I created multiple tiny desserts using powders mixed with water.  At the time of purchase, I had also gotten a second kit for creating tiny donuts.  As a big fan of these ring-shaped treats, I had high hopes for this one, even if I tried to keep my expectation of the flavors in the realm of the reasonable.

Popin’ Cookin’ Sweets Party Review

Recently, Mother Duck and I have been rewatching several of Brutalmoose’s videos on Youtube where he puts together various Popin’ Cookin’ food kits, a trio of videos where he assembles miniature burgers, takoyaki, and gummies.  While they never turned out particularly delicious, they looked like a pretty cute and fun diversion that we just had to try for ourselves.  We ended up buying two kits of the sweeter variety, as they seem to be more edible than their savory counterparts.  Our first choice was Sweets Party, which would allow us to create five tiny treats.

Our last international food ranking post for the time being is actually the best one yet!  This post will be covering a delightful assortment of edible goodness that I got from Turkey, all of which came in a cute purple box!  Most of the snacks were of the sweet variety, but this post will also include a small portion of savory snacks, as well.  Links to previous posts can be found at the bottom.  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Our newest food ranking is here, where I try various sweets from Mexico!  Can the Duck handle the heat of these frequently spicy treats?  Find out below! Oh, and I didn’t try Limon 7 because I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about salt and lemon powder….  (Just a note: each title usually includes the brand name followed by the snack/flavor.)

Ranking Random Snacks and Sweets from Guatemala

A short while back, I ranked some random Japanese snacks and sweets that I received as an early Christmas present (links can be found below).  I was asked if I was going to do any more posts like this, and so I decided to order a couple more snack and treat assortments from various other countries off of Amazon.  Today, we’re going to start with the selection I received from Guatemala, which just so happened to come in a cool box and even included a nifty little bookmark!

Ranking Random Japanese Sweets

Last week, I ranked some random Japanese snacks, courtesy of Mother Duck.  This time, we have a far more substantial list focusing on a plethora of sweets!  Seeing as the majority of the text on these packages was written in Japanese, I did my best to find out what these things were.  There are a few that I couldn’t figure out, but the provided photo should at least give you an idea of what they look like, even if the placement doesn’t match this list perfectly.

Making Toriel’s Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie from Undertale

For Thanksgiving this year, Mother Duck and I were inspired to try replicating the butterscotch cinnamon pie that Toriel bakes in Undertale.  As far as I can tell, this is not a pre-existing recipe, so I had to consult some cooking websites that we were less familiar with for some directions.  It took us two tries to get it right, but we were eventually successful.  A brief account of our endeavors shall begin below, but if you’re eager to make the pie right this instant, I shall provide the link to the recipe we used right here.
