I'm a huge fan of junk food. I know it's not the best for me, but every once in awhile it's great to treat myself. Two of my favorite candies are chewing gum and gummies.
When the glee gum came in the mail, I couldn't wait to try it out. The glee gum was like little packets of flavor. The flavors varied from triple berry, to bubble gum, to tangerine. Now, some gums that I've tried have lost their "chewiness" over time, but I noticed that glee gum kept it's chew for a long time.
The other product I received was one of their Make Your Own Candy Kits. They have kits to make your own chocolate, bubble gum, and gummies. Because I'm such a huge gummy fan, I thought the Make Your Own Gummy Kit would be fun and educational.
Since I don't have kids of my own I asked my nephew, Dustyn, to come over one night and help me make gummies. Since he's six, this was right up his alley and he was more than excited to make gummies. When we took everything out of the box, it was nice to see that everything was organized and had easy steps to follow. The steps were also very kid friendly and it was nice to let Dustyn do most the work. The look on his face when we were making the gummies said it all to me. He was so excited and loved every minute of it. The kit comes with molding starch so you get to choose what kind of gummies to make, which I thought was so neat. Because I couldn't find any items to make the molds, I thought it would be fun for Dustyn to use his hand as one. That had to have been one of the best ideas for a mold. He loved putting his hand in the molding starch and then putting the gummy mixer over it. You have to put the gummies in the refrigerator for ten minutes after you make them and Dustyn couldn't wait for that ten minutes to be up so he could eat his gummy hand. If you like sour gummies, there is even a bag of sour sugar to sprinkle over your gummies. I'm sure the other candy kits are just as fun!
