Glee Gum Review and Giveaway

I chew A LOT of gum, it seems like there's always a piece or two in my mouth.  I especially like to chew gum on my way to church, really helps with dry mouth especially when I have to get ready to sing for choir.  I love all of the different varieties of gum out there nowadays; bubble gum, sugar-free-gum and special breath freshening gum, there always something new and different coming out.  I found a great gum that is not only delicious tasting, but all natural, and we all know how I feel about all natural products for sure.  The name of the gum is Glee Gum and they not only have some great flavors of chewing gum, but they also carry Make Your Own Candy Kits for kids, where your little ones can make their own gummy candy, chewing gum and chocolate.  I had the opportunity to try some of the several flavors and varieties of Glee Gum recently for review including:
*Glee Gum Spearmint
*Glee Gum Cinnamon
*Glee Gum Wee Glee
*Glee Gum Triple Berry
*3 packs of Mini Glee Gum in Tangerine,Peppermint, and Bubblegum Flavors

First of all the shape of the gum reminds me if the Chiclets gum I used to chew all of the time as a kid, you know, the little squares?  I have tried several of the flavors of Glee and I really love them!  They are not overly sweet like some gum has the tendency of being and it is not hard to chew at all.  My favorite is the Tangerine flavor, but all of the flavors that I have tried so far (Spearmint, Cinnamon and Bubblegum) are equally yummy.  The flavor lasts a long time and doesn't get stale like some other gum that I have chewed.  Glee Gum is made with all natural ingredients including pure cane sugar, rice syrup, natural flavorings and colors.  Their gum base has super chewy natural chicle harvested from Sapodilla trees in the rainforests of Central America.  Glee gum is the healthy alternative to synthetic chewing and bubble gum and contains no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners (no aspartame), or preservatives.  Glee Gum is also gluten-free, dairy free and nut free.  My oldest daughter tried the Triple Berry and she really liked it as well.  She loves to chew gum and it's great to find a healthier alternative to some of the full sugar gum that she loves to chew.  I love Glee Gum, because it is something that I can feel confident in giving her and know that it won't harm her teeth.  I am so glad to be able to have had the opportunity to find Glee Gum.  It truly is a one of kind, flavor packed, and long lasting gum that you are sure to enjoy.

Glee Gum is manufactured by Verve Inc, which is an independent, family-owned business dedicated to linking world communities and creating environmentally and socially responsible products and activities.  In 1992, Verve was born when they visited the economically depressed chicle producing community in Northern Guatamala.  It was up until then that they never realized how chewing gum was actually made.  When they realized their origins, they learned that prior to the synthetic resins, chicle was the basis of the entire industry.  Verve's goal was to support chicle-harvesting by purchasing chicle and thus is how Verve was born.  The first and most popular product Make your Own Chewing Gum was produced with this goal in mind.  Verve provides a substantial source of income for those communities while offering fun, educational, and environmentally friendly activities for kids.  

The Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit includes all ingredients and even the pan.  It also includes a story about the rainforest products and the people who produce and harvest the chicle used/  It is a fun kit for learning at home, school or any group activity and makes the equivalent of 50 sticks of gum.
The Make You Own Gummy Candy Kit lets kids make their own gummy candy using the natural gelling ingredients found within seaweed-carrageenan and agar.  All of the ingredients needed are included and it also includes a story about the world's oceans and people living in coastal communities who grow and process seaweed. This makes the equivalent of 15 gummy candies.
The Make Your Own Chocolate Kits allows kids to make their own chocolate not by melting chocolate but is made from scratch with cocoa butter and cocoa powder.  This kit includes a story about the origin and development of chocolate from Mayan to modern times.  All of the ingredients are included even the cacoa beans and makes an equivalent of 20 chocolates.
