I used to love to chew gum when I was a kid, but when I became an adult I began to question what I was actually chewing. A closer look at the ingredients labels of most gums made me realize that I was basically chewing a blob of chemicals; at that point I completely stopped chewing gum. However, my kids were still continually begging to buy gum in the check out lane at the grocery store; I didn't want them having artificial sweeteners and all of those chemicals, so I said no. As I am sure you can imagine my kids were not amused by my decision, but as they say "A Moms got to do what a Moms got to do"!

To add a bit of whimsy to your glee gum experience, you can purchase a Glee Gum Dispenser (See photo above) directly from the Glee website, and fill it with your favorite Glee Gum flavors. My family loves all (6) delicious flavors of Glee Gum, so our dispenser is filled with the bulk 1 pound Glee Gum Assorted Mix. The gumball machine can be set to accept coins, or dispense without the use of coins. I have mine set to accept coins; when my kids do something nice for someone else in our family without being asked, my husband and I give them a penny to use in the Glee Gum Dispenser as a reward. They enjoy putting in the coin, turning the handle, and waiting to see what flavors of Glee Gum come out! To be honest with you, I enjoy using the Glee Gum dispenser as much as they do... it makes me feel like a kid again. :)
