Glee Gum Make Your Own Candy Kit *Review & 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"

My daughter and I got to spend quality time together making our own gum using a kit from Glee Gum!  We had so much fun during the whole process and it tasted great.  It came with directions and everything needed and was surprisingly easy to make.


I really was impressed with the ingredients.  On gum today there ingredients I am not always sure about.  This kit uses only chewing gum base (containing natural chicle), confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, natural cinnamon and cherry flavors.  I felt fine with my kids and myself chewing this.  It was really easy to make.  I did get very sticky but was able to get it off super easy.  This kit made a ton of gum!

The kit also contained the story of Eduardo, a chiclero.  It tells of how his job is to collect the sap (chicle) that is used to make Glee Gum.  By purchasing their gum & gum kit we are making sure these workers continue to have a job.  My daughter really enjoyed the story and it was really
neat to find out where the chicle comes from. 


You can purchase gum and three different candy kits from Glee Gum.  They offer the gum kit, gummies kit and chocolate kit.


With school starting back up this would be a fun afternoon project or something to do for family time one evening or weekend. 

Buy It: You can purchase any kit from Glee Gum for only $13 along with gum and other products or try using their store locator.

  1. I think my favorite thing about Glee Gum would be the actual experience of making candy! My daughter really wants to try the gum making kit because she is very interested in how chewing gum is made. I think making it herself would be a great educational opportunity (not to mention a yummy one!)!
    Thanks!
