REVIEW: Kracie Happy Kitchen Burger

I’m finally making an appearance after disappearing for about a month! Even my co-worker noticed my absence and asked me about it, haha.

Trying to juggle work, plus these other side projects that I picked up last month has left me with very little energy and inspiration to make anything. Don’t worry, I think I’m starting to get the hang of this busy schedule, so I should be blogging more frequently. I’ve actually been itching to bake some paleo apple pies, but I haven’t gotten around to gathering the right ingredients yet. And nope, I still haven’t forgotten about the lamingtons. I actually have a bag of shredded coconut sitting in the pantry, waiting for me to open!

So, to ease myself back into the routine of blogging and baking again, I’ve decided to upload a food related post. It’s not exactly a food, more like a candy, except it’s savory… I can’t quite explain it. I was at the supermarket last weekend, when I wandered into candy aisle and came across this:

I’ve tried other Kracie products before, including the sushi, donut, and cake set, but I have to say, their savory sets are far more interesting than the sweet ones. The only exception I would make would be the Kracie Gummy Land set, because it’s pretty damn fun to make your own gummy candy!

Moving on, the ramen set isn’t available at the supermarket, but their Happy Kitchen Burger set was on sale so I picked this one up. Seems like an easy and fun post to share with you all 🙂

The burger set comes with 6 powder mixes: cola, burger bun, cheese, burger patty, ketchup and potato fries, some utensils to make the magic happen, a plastic cup for the cola, and other containers to mix/microwave your concoctions.

The steps are all the same: add water, mix and microwave so I didn’t document each step. You guys are smarties, you’ll get it 😛

Add two cups of water, mix, pat down and microwave! Pretty neat eh?

The coolest part was when I mixed the cola powder with water because it actually fizzed up like real cola!

Here is the final product (I apologize for the crappy quality of my burgers, I was too eager to taste them!)

Some pretty unappealing burgers right there!

Taste wise, it’s not bad, but it’s not great either. I can only describe it as, again, interesting…
I would have to say that I was most intrigued by the cola, fries and cheese. The cola doesn’t taste like cola from a can, but if you’ve had those cola candies before, it actually tastes exactly like that except there is a bit of fizz to it.
The fries, surprisingly enough, tastes like soggy fries! Maybe I should have left them in the microwave a little longer than 3o seconds to let them harden up a bit? As for the cheese, it tastes like something you would find in Kraft Dinner. I love the flavor of cheese, so I’m not too picky!

I didn’t really care for the rest of the set: burger and bun wasn’t that great, and the ketchup was too sweet!

So here you go, a quick review of Kracie Happy Kitchen Burger!
This post was a lot harder to write than I thought because when I eat, the food either tastes good or it doesn’t. I didn’t think it would be this tricky when I tried to come up with words to DESCRIBE it… yikes!

Anyways, I promise I will be back with some baking post soon because I miss those!
