Glee Make Your Own Gummies Kit Review and Giveaway...



"Glee Gum is all-natural, gluten-free chewing gum with no artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners nor preservatives. 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 rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Not Glee Gum! Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest. Chicle is also what gives the gum such great, long-lasting chewing texture! Glee Gum is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. So chew with Glee, naturally!"


But that is not all...Glee also has candy making kits...


"Available in Make Your Own Chocolate, Make Your Own Chewing Gum, and Make Your Own Gummies, these activity kits are all-natural, educational, and eco-friendly. With pre-packaged ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions, everyone aged 8 and up gets a real kick out of making candy from scratch. Focusing on the history behind and the origin of these candies, each kit is designed to captivate your interest, connect you to the global community, and create something yummy to eat in the process!"


ABCD Diaries chose to review the Glee Make Your Own Gummies Kit:


Both A and D loved playing with the soaked seaweed once it was covered in "slime"(carrageenan:) A did most of the helping since there was heat involved. They both really loved the hands-on candy making experience. Finding molds for our gummies was a bit tricky, Mom's creative juices just weren't flowing that morning. We did try some gummy worms and the back of the spoon...the kiddos didn't seem to care what shape they were in as long as they got to eat them:) I was very involved, but older kids would probably have no trouble doing this project on their own(the kit is recommended for ages 8+). The directions were very straightforward and easy to follow. A also really liked the information that came with the kit explaining how the process actually works and some cool seaweed facts. The Glee Make Your Own Gummies kit exceeded our expectations:)

ABCD Diaries gives Glee Make Your Own Gummies Kit an A for ages 8 and up...we think it would be especially cool for birthday parties or sleepovers:) Thanks to Glee for letting us review this awesome kit!

And now for the giveaway...Glee has offered one lucky ABCD Diaries reader the candy making kit of their choice!
