Glee Gum Candy Making Kit Review & Giveaway!!

Do you know what's in the gum you are chewing?  Most likely things like preservatives, artificial flavorings, colorings, or sweeteners, like aspartame.  :/

Glee Gum is different!  It contains NO artificial preservatives, flavors, colors,or sweeteners. All Glee Gum is Vegetarian, GMO Free, Additive Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Yeast Free, Nut Free, and Peanut Free.


Glee Gum is the only gum in North America made the old-fashioned way, with chicle!  

Chicle is a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rain forests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff.

Glee is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. 

Well I had the opportunity to try both Glee Gum and one of their fun Candy Making Kits!!  We received both the Chocolate and Gum Making Kit, but today I'm just going to talk about the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.
The directions were simple and Funny Bunny and I had a lot of fun making our chewing gum.  She was surprised at what it looked like before, during, and after the process.



 
Included in the kit was a fun learning sheet about chewing gum and the rain forest.  You can go here to find out how chewing gum gets "From the Tree to Glee"!  It's actually a pretty interesting process...and very educational!  Educators can also find stories and lesson plans.

Thoughts of a 10-Year Old:  The two flavors we got were Peppermint and Cherry.  At first, when I looked at the little chicle pellets, I thought, "That's gum?" But it did turn out to be gum and it was pretty good, too. Once we melted the chicle, it was really sticky-gooey and hard to get out of the pan. But I think the gum itself was great and it really was gum-y.  My favorite flavor was Cherry, and though the flavor doesn't last as long as regular gum, it's definitely worth it to save the chicle trees!

WE would LOVE to win this kit! Glee GUm is the only thing our daughter can chew, because all the other chewing gums have aspartame, which makes her vomit. She would be SO EXCITED if we won. Right now she is just happy that I went to Jungle Jim's and got her 3 different flavors of Glee Gum when I was at the homeschool convention in Cincinnati last month!

I would love to win this to have sent as a surprise "just because" gift to my only niece and nephew Jenah and Jon. I would love to eventually be able to enable them to try all the sets but I know the one they are hoping to try most of all first is the Gummies kit.

Thank you for this opportunity to both you and the sponsor.

This sounds like great fun. My nephew loves gum, and his mom is always looking for "projects" they can do to stay occupied while dad is away traveling. My nephew is 4 1/2, so there is lots of "where's daddy?" when my brother-in-law travels.
