I hope this is as much fun for you to watch as it was for us to make! W
First we stopped off in Little Tokyo and picked up some Japanese prepackaged snack foods and a couple of Poppin’ Cookin’ kits. Since we couldn’t read the labels, we made our purchases based on packaging. We tried to pick a variety and also avoided choosing items that were easily identifiable. The more obscure the better! This proved to be pretty simple, since even package illustrations and photos didn’t always help us figure out what we were buying. We spent about $20. (You could easily spend $100 if you’re not careful.) Lizzy Kay wanted to try the Poppin’ Cookin’ kits. We chose two different kinds. They were around $5 each.
Here’s an Amazon affiliate link for the cheeseburger kit we used:
The Poppin’ Cookin’ kits are insane!
We made the “American Meal” (two double cheeseburgers, cola and fries) in this three part series. The first episode reveals our Japanese pre-packaged food taste tests, the second episode is a Poppin’ Cookin’ tutorial demonstrating the “American Meal”.
We’ll share the sushi Poppin’ Cookin’ in an upcoming video adventure! This was a perfect rainy day activity for this Mommy/Daughter duo. Have fun, if you try this at home – and don’t say we didn’t warn you! Your results may vary, but we’re pretty sure you’ll be laughing, too! I really should have included this in the Mother’s Day Gift Guide, because it’s such a fun, silly experience to share with your kids. You won’t be full after eating this meal, but it may be better than braving the crowds at brunch on Mother’s Day.
What do you think? Is this the future of molecular gastronomy?

Yeah, we don’t read Japanese either.
