Gummy Fun with Glee Review and Giveaway


 My children love to do hands on activities.I try to find them original craft or play kits to keep them occupied.When I came across the opportunity to try the Glee Gum Make Your Own Gummies Kit,I jumped on it.

I had never tried the Glee products before,although I had heard about them many times.When my box arrived,safe and secure,I opened it to find,not only a gummy kit,but also a few packs of the Glee Gum to try.My boys enjoyed taking the mini packs with them to school for lunch.Each box contained 2 pieces of square gum.I received,Spearmint,Tangerine,Berry, Cinnamon and more to try.I think the favorite was the Berry or Tangerine.

The Make Your Own Gummies Kit included real dried seaweed,powdered seaweed,sour mix,colored sugar and molding starch.First we put the seaweed in a bowl of water.

The kids were enchanted watching it grow and grow and develop a gel.It was like a mini science experiment for them.Next we used the molding starch to make our gummy shapes.We used straws to make worms,a small care bear figure,a basket to my daughters Strawberry Shortcake figure and more to make different shapes for the kids to mold.

The boys added the powdered seaweed to the seaweed gel and we heated it in the microwave for about a minute and 45 seconds until it became "gummy".Once it was removed we stirred in the colored sugar and used a spoon to gently pour the mix into the molds we had made.As the mixture cools,it thickens so after a few minutes we had to stop.We put the finished molds into the fridge to cool for 5-10 minutes.Once they had cooled,we simply removed them from the molding starch,wiped them off and dropped them in the sour mix to coat.




This was a fun experience for the kids.The kit has every needed to make these,except the shapes you use to mold.The heating can be done both on the stove top or the microwave and clean-up was a snap.The kids had so much fun doing this that I would like to try the other kits they offer too.I was able to find something each of them could do to help.Even the Princess,at 4,was able to participate.
