My daughter loves being creative. She loves making crafts, following recipes, and playing dress up. She makes up games every day and is so imaginative. The Glee Gum Kit is such a perfect gift for her because not only is she creative but she loves gum too.

My Review of the Glee Gum Kit
We had an older friend visiting the day we made our own Glee Gum with the Glee Gum Chewing Gum Kit. Her and my daughter had a great time making the gum.
Here is what I liked:
- The powdered sugar was easy to mix with the chicle base. It was time consuming but not difficult. My daugther loves things like this and she licked her hands often.
- The chicle, sugar, and flavor base is all natural. I didn’t have to worry about what my daugther was licking, and chewing. I appreciate products like this.
- The flavor base included – cherry and bubble gum – tasted great.
Here is what I didn’t like:
- Melting the chicle. The included pan melted in the microwave and made a huge mess. It was difficult to remove from my microwave and counter.
- The flavor base did not last more than 5 minutes and the flavor was gone.
All in all, it was a fun craft time. The gum might not have been the best, but the making of it was a lot of fun for both an older girl and my daughter. We all chewed the gum and when it lost it’s flavor we spit it out and chewed a new piece. The price is right on these candy making kits too. I do recommend this gum. Just don’t use the microwave method. Melt the chicle on the stove.
