Glee Chewing Gum Kit- Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

Who doesn't love to chew gum!  My older children are occasionally allowed to chew gum and when I discovered a company that made all natural gum I couldn't wait to try it out.

Glee Gum  is all natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle. It comes in SIX great flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, tangerine, bubblegum, spearmint, and triple berry. Glee Gum is the #1 healthy alternative to synthetic chewing gum and bubble gum! With no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners (no aspartame), or preservatives, it's easy to chew Glee-fully!

The company that created it is called Verve and it is an independent, family-owned business, dedicated to linking world communities and creating environmentally and socially responsible products and activities.

They also have make your own candy kits and make your own gum kits.

We chose the Make your own Chewing Gum kit to review.  Since we home school I thought this would be a good learning tool as well.  We learned that chewing gum is made with chicle, the sap of the Sapodilla tree that grows in the rainforests of Central America.
Included in the kit is:
chewing gum base (containing natural chicle), confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, natural cinnamon and cherry flavors, a pan for softening the chicle gum base, instructions and the story of chicle.
This is perfect for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school groups. Adult supervision is recommended. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up).

We were sent some sample packs and they are really good, even though the piece are small, they have plenty of flavor!  
My kids were excited to try to make our own gum, and I will say it was fun, but we may not have done it right.  The kit had everything we needed, but I felt that the directions should also have some pictures, as I wasn't sure ours was looking right.  It is definitely for kids 8 and up, as it is VERY sticky, and takes a lot of hard work to roll the gum out.  Parental supervision is a must.

You can see from our pictures that it doesn't look like gum- but it did taste good!  The cinnamon was very hot, and the cherry flavor reminded me of cherry kool aide. Overall it was a fun learning experience and a great way to end our school year!
