Glee Glum Make Your Own Gummies Kit Review & Giveaway

My boys love gummies. At least 3 times a day they are asking for them. I haven't found a home made gummy recipe that I like yet. There is, however, a homemade gummy kit, which we had the pleasure to review.



The gummies are so easy to make. All you have to do is let the seaweed soak for a few minutes, boil it, add sugar, boil again and pour into the molds! The boys had such a fun time making their own gummies. Everything that you need is in the kit itself. The kit even includes molding starch which allows you to make your own molds! Because my boys are young, I found it easiest to use a straw to make gummy worms. We also used magnetic letters to spell out their names (these were hard for the boys to do).



There is a white starchy substance left on the gummies (it's from the molding starch) but it is easily brushed off with a paper towel. It intimidated my boys at first but after I explained what it was and showed them how to remove it, they were fine.


The Glee Gum website has lots of interesting information. The gummies in the Make Your Own Gummies Kit are made from seaweed! You can find out how and why HERE. There is a page on the website which contains educational information to use in conjunction with the kit. It includes a sample lesson plan, a guide, additional resources to use and tips for using the kit.



The Make Your Own Chewing Gum, Make Your Own Chocolate, and Make Your Own Gummies Kits blend simple fun, terrific taste, and hands-on learning for convenient use at home and school. Each kit contains everything needed to produce candy that kids love, and, at the same time, affords an understanding of the origins of the raw materials used to make the final product. For example, the Gummies Kit uses seaweed, which produces carrageenan, as its gelling agent. And kids don’t just melt chocolate chips with the Chocolate Kit. They actually start from scratch, with cocoa butter, cocoa powder, and sugar. As for the Chewing Gum Kit – the gum base gets its start as the sap from a Sapodilla tree, of all things! Each kit includes a story about where the ingredients come from, who harvests them, and how. In today’s pre-packaged world, it’s often hard to know where the things we eat originate, and how they connect us to the global community. These kits make it easy and fun to find out!

Buy it!  You can buy your own Make Your Own Candy Kit HERE. Or, find Glee Gum at a store near you.

Win it! Molly, with Glee Gum has offered one of my lucky readers a chance to win their own kit, winner's choice! (Meaning, you get to pick if you want the make your own gum, chocolate or gummy kit!)
