DIY candy kits are big in Japan and these products are expanding to suit the needs and interests of not only kids but also of grownups. The Zen Garden series by Japanese company Heart is a great example of this pivot to a more mature market.
The DIY candy kits double as a desktop zen garden that is interactive and allows consumers to practice some mindfulness and meditation before indulging in the delicious treat. One of Heart's offerings boasts a miniature rock garden where the rocks are substituted with chocolate and candy, while the sand is powdered Ramune sweets. The second option, on the other hand, features "a gummy-like koi pond." In addition, Heart includes a miniature rake to complete the authentic food-derived kit.
