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, natural cinnamon and cherry 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 Chewing Gum Kit makes enough for 50 pieces!
This little kit was a ton of fun to do. We had my Godson, Benjamin, over to help us. While making it we talked about the environment, about the rainforest, and about the people that live in the areas near the rainforest.
It was very messy to make, but it was well worth the effort. Even though you get two packets of flavoring with the kit, Marguerite from Glee Gum had told me that you can use other powdered flavors as well. She suggested things such as Kool-Aid and Jell-o.
Since I am on this pomegranate kick, we used Crystal Light Pomegranate Lemonade. That gum was so delicious! So with this kit, I can make any flavor that I want. This is one of the best benefits.
Besides this kit, Glee Gum also offers a Make Your Own Gummy Candy Kit and a Make Your Own Chocolate Kit.
You have the opportunity to win one of the three kits offered by Glee Gum.
