Giveaway & Review: Make Your Own Candy Kits (Ingredients are Gluten Free & All-Natural)!

I had the chance to review a tasty, educational and all natural product with my kids... a Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit from the makers of Glee Gum! They also have a Make Your Own Chocolate Kit and a Make Your Own Gummies Kit available; my kids and I are anxious to try those next.

Impressively, all three Make Your Own Candy Kits are gluten free - a blessing for kids who have Celiac Disease, like my daughter. No doubt that these kits would make creative hands-on holiday gifts for the children on your shopping list (after all, what kid wouldn't want to make candy?)!

The process of making the chewing gum with the kit was surprisingly easy; my kids and I were able to produce about 50 pieces of natural chicle based gum in both cherry and cinnamon flavors. We found it interesting to learn that chicle comes from the rainforests and is what all gum used to be made of (not full of chemicals like most gums are these days). The Make Your Own Gum Kit brought my family together for some sticky, hands on fun! All of agree that this would be a fun activity to do again very soon.
