I bought this kit for my 8-year-old son's Christmas, and so far during Christmas break we've made three of the projects - the Sour Lollipops, the Liquid Sour Candy, and the Sour Marshmallows. We've run out of the included corn syrup (it doesn't *look* like regular corn syrup although if we try to make something that needs it we'll use regular Karo and see what happens), but there are no more projects that require it so I'm guessing there's just enough material included to make each project once, and that's fair. As mentioned in other reviews, I think you can get the special materials elsewhere if you choose to make any of these again.
Not everything you need is included, though - you'll need to have other things on hand like granulated sugar, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, mixing bowls, etc, to complete some of the projects.
Like other reviewers, we also felt the lollipops were a bust. This was my first time making hard candy so I didn't expect great results but hoped for something edible since the box listed the age range as 8+. The instructions *were* helpful in describing the various stages of candy so that wasn't the issue, although since the sugar mixture turned tan before we added the flavoring and citric acid it could be that we burned it and thus the taste was off (*waaaay* off). Either way, they tasted really bad and ended up in the trash; we did not try again. Still, even though the kids were disappointed, I still learned something. :]
The Sour Liquid Candy was much better - tasted as expected (very tart with a little sweet); some people liked it (my son) while others didn't. That's normal.
The Sour Marshmallows are our favorites so far - quite fun! They aren't like store-bought marshmallows, but we made them and they tasted good. :] We hope to do these again soon.
I'm not sure the kit was worth the two Hamiltons I paid for it at TRU, but it still has been fun and we still have a few projects to go... the Sour Rock Candy has to wait until we buy a new bag of sugar (takes 4 cups of sugar per batch), and the Sour Powder Candy and Sour Gummis look really simple which means the kids can do more of the work.
Overall we have enjoyed this product. Might be just as enjoyable to find the recipes online and put together your own kit as a gift, but if you're short on time this is a decent substitute. :]
My son saved his allowance for this toy. What a huge disappointment.
There was nothing in this box that you probably don't have at home (except citric acid). I recommend following any candy recipe you get online or in a cookbook instead of this product. Candy molds are very inexpensive to buy. You'd spend less than you would on this product and have a more satisfying experience!
I gave it 3 stars on educational value because my son learned two TBSP = 1/8 cup. The recipe actually says to add 1/8cup water...I've never seen 1/8 cup called for in a recipe! We had to look it up to find it's the same as two TBSP...which was a learning moment. Other than that - a big waste of time and money.
The complicated instructions are completely impossible for any kid to understand or execute without and adult present at all times. The temperatures needed are dangerous for an adult cooking, let alone a kid. My kids left 10 minutes in and the whole activity was messy, boring & not impressive by the end. If you get this for your kids, make sure you have burn gel on hand because it's an accident waiting to happen. This is the worst toy ever invented.
We have made two of the candy recipes--the suckers and the gummy candy--and both turned out great. They tasted fine, and even my husband, who doesn't like candy, said the gummy candies tasted pretty good. Obviously, the kit requires adult supervision--there's no way my 9-year-old could have done the suckers by himself--but I kind of expected that after reading the reviews. Still, it has been a fun activity for us to do together.
However, there are a couple of problems with the kit--the candy molds are really tiny, really crummy, and they don't hold all the mixture that the recipes make. So here's a simple solution: use your own candy mold. If you don't have one at home, you can buy one (maybe on Amazon along with the kit) for around a dollar or two. We actually used our silicone Star Wars ice cube molds for the gummy candy, and it was hilarious to have a gummy candy of Han Solo frozen in Carbonite :)
The other problem is that some of the recipes have missing or incomplete steps. The gummy candy recipe doesn't say when to stir in the sugar, but we used common sense to figure out to stir it in with the hot water/citric acid mixture. Not really a problem.
I was also very careful with the amount of citric acid we used--since some reviewers have said that larger amounts make the candy inedible, I made sure to only use the suggested amount, or even slightly less. The candy is still plenty sour.
So, all in all, we have had a great experience with the kit. It has been fun. I do think the kit is a little overpriced for what it is--a couple of packets of corn syrup, citric acid, and flavoring, and five sucker sticks and a really really crummy candy mold--but I don't think my son would have been as excited if I had just bought the ingredients at our local craft store and put them in a basket for him. I mean, the packaging is sometimes part of the fun, right?
