Glee Gum Kits Review/Giveaway! ENDS 2/11



Here is alittle information about Glee Gum:If you look at the ingredients in most chewing gum, you’ll discover loads of unpronounceable items. Not Glee Gum. It’s all natural. That means no artificial coloring, no artificial flavoring, no preservatives, no aspartame –
just great chewing gum that keeps its chewing texture and taste, the way gum should. Glee Chewing Gum is the only gum in the U.S. which contains chicle, the original material from which all chewing gum was once made. The chicle sap is sustainably tapped from Sapodilla trees in the rainforests of Central America, much like maple syrup is here in the States. Though every other gum uses completely synthetic ingredients in its gum base, Glee Gum prides itself on being old-fashioned. Chicle not only forms the unique basis for the gum, it also provides a crucial income source for thousands of forest-dwellers, and an incentive to leave the trees standing. Who knew chewing gum could help theenvironment? Don’t be glum, chew Glee gum!

Here is some information about the Candy Kits:

The Make Your Own Chewing Gum, Make Your Own Chocolate, and Make Your Own Gummies Kits blend simple fun, terrific taste, and hands-on learning for convenient use at home and school. Each kit contains everything needed to produce candy that kids love, and, at the same time, affords an understanding of the origins of the raw materials used to make the final product. For example, the Gummies Kit uses seaweed, which produces carrageenan, as its gelling agent. And kids don’t just melt chocolate chips with the Chocolate Kit. They actually start from scratch, with cocoa butter, cocoa powder, and sugar. As for the Chewing Gum Kit – the gum base gets its start as the sap from a Sapodilla tree, of all things! Each kit
includes a story about where the ingredients come from, who harvests them, and how. In today’s pre packaged world, it’s often hard to know where the things we eat originate, and how they connect us
to the global community. These kits make it easy and fun to find out!

I was sent the Gummies Candy Kit for review! I was also sent six packs of Glee Gum that was delicious! As per the instructions we first decided what we were going to use for the molds. This is what JJ decided he wanted to use:
Here he is waiting for mommy to set it up so we could get started:

I prepared the starch for the molds and then I prepared the mixture which I was impressed how easy it was! Actually it was so easy that if he was older he could of done the process all by himself!
Sorry it's small but when I enlarged it it was bad quaility. But you get the idea. I loved how you make the molds and then are able to reuse the starch to make more! So the possibilities are endless!


Here are some of the finished product, these were the first batch so they weren't as detailed as the rest but still just as tasty!

This is little man enjoying the finished product!
