Glee Gum is an eco-friendly, all natural, no preservative gum making company. This company uses good old chicle. Chicle that is sustainably harvested from Central America. Back in the day all gum was made from chicle, that is how it got it's awesome taste and texture. But today, all other gums are made from synthetic materials. Glee Gum is still using chicle and keeping the flavor and texture that was so good from so long ago!!


Glee Gum comes in many flavors. There is no preservatives, no artificial colors and no artificial flavors.


Glee Gum has candy making kits too. They have Make Your Own Chocolate Kit, Make Your Own Gummies Kit, and Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.


We picked the Make Your Own Gummies Kit for our review. This was not only fun to do with the kids, but educational. The kit came with all the ingredients you need to make your very own gummies. There was a story included in the kit of how seaweed is used as a gelling agent in the gummie process and how it is harvested in the Philippines. Seaweed harvesting is a sustainable and eco-friendly way for people to make a living without harming the environment.
Here is a picture of the seaweed after the gelling agent, carrageenan is released after heating. We simply removed the seaweed and used the liquid that was left over.


Now we were ready to add the colored sugar packet.


The kids are placing their gummies into the molding starch and then we can pop them into the fridge.
After 10 minutes, the candies were ready and the kids gobbled them up. I am not a fan of anything gummie and these were really good. The kids loved making them and eating them even better.
We had a great time with this kit and learned a great deal about the environment and making candy. They can't wait to try the next kit, now we need to decide...chocolate or gum???
