Glee gum- Review and giveaway


Glee gum has created some very unique educational make your own kits.  They have three different kits:  Make your own gum, make your own gummies, Make your own chocolate.
You can find out more about these kits here 

From there site:

Connect kids to the global community by tracing the origins of raw materials we encounter in our daily lives. Our gum kit uses natural chicle. Our chocolate kit includes organic cocoa butter from Costa Rica, and the gummy kit contains carrageenan made from seaweed from the Philippines.
Create something exciting and delicious. At Verve, we believe people learn by doing. By creating delicious edible treats with our kits, kids also create connections to each other, between various fields of studies, and to other communities and cultures.
Captivate kids' interest. Kids have always loved to stir, mix, touch and taste our great activity kits. Now children can make yummy treats while learning about: the rainforest, ethnobotany, chemistry, mathematics and measurement, ecology and environmental issues, home economics, nutrition, the oceans and more!
.
I was given the opportunity to review the chocolate making kit.  What fun!!  The kit even included a chocolate bean so children can see where the chocolate comes from in it's earliest form.  The kits comes with everything to make these yummy treats!! I have to admit I did not get to try the chocolate because I mixed up to of the ingredients and messed my batch up.  This as a silly mistake on my part the directions are very easy to follow just pay attention to the nice labels on each bag!! I do recommend this product as a great adventure for home or school.  I could see this as a great birthday party activity to allow the kids to make their own candy. 

I also got a chance to review some of glee's all natural gum.  Yum!!  I loved all the yummy flavors I think Tangerine is my favorite.  The gum is made from chicle from the rainforest.  Read more on the gum here
