Glee Gum Chewing Gum Candy Kit
Exciting news! Glee Gum is transitioning to a new recipe for its gum base, the part that gives it chewy texture. Unlike the gum base in most chewing gum, which is made with synthetic materials, Glee's new gum base recipe is 100% natural. It’s made predominantly of the rainforest tree sap chicle with just three additional, safe, natural ingredients: calcium carbonate, candelilla wax, and dehydrated citrus peels.
Make your own chewing gum with chicle, the sap of the Sapodilla tree that grows in the rainforests of Central America. Everything you need is included in this kit and it's easy! You can make your own gum on the stove or with a microwave. Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school groups. Adult supervision is recommended. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!
Inside each Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit, you'll find: chewing gum base (containing natural chicle), confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, two natural flavors, a pan for softening the chicle gum base, instructions, and the story of chicle.
And it's really easy: Soften the chicle gum base, either in the microwave or on the stove. Then you add the sugar, corn syrup, and the flavor packets, knead it a little, and WOW! You've made your own gum! Each Gum Kit makes 30 – 50 pieces of chewing gum.
