Review + Giveaway - Glee Gum
I first heard about Glee Gum on a show on Food Network about how different food products are made. I was so wowed by how natural and different Glee Gum was, and I wanted some! So, I ran to my co-op and any natural foods stores I could find, but no one carried it. Sadly, that was the end of my search...until...I heard about them from a fellow blogger and then connected with Molly from Glee Gum!
You know that I only share with my readers products that I feel are as natural and eco-friendly as they can be. I am happy to say Glee Gum is a perfect fit! Let me share with you some of the things I love about Glee Gum.
First of all, you are not going to find any other gum like Glee Gum. Glee Gum is all-natural, gluten-free chewing gum with no artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners nor preservatives. Glee Gum is the only gum in North America made the old-fashioned way, with chicle! Chicle is a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Not Glee Gum! Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest. Chicle is also what gives the gum such great, long-lasting chewing texture! Glee Gum is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. What is not to love about that, right?
I also love that their gum comes in so many different flavors. My favorite is either the Triple Berry or Tangerine. They also have regular Bubblegum, Banana, Peppermint, Cinnamon, and Spearmint.
In addition to their gum, Glee Gum also has Glee Kits, which I thought would make a fun rainy day activity or a great birthday party idea. Available in Make Your Own Chocolate, Make Your Own Chewing Gum, and Make Your Own Gummies, these activity kits are all-natural, educational, and eco-friendly. With pre-packaged ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions, everyone aged 8 and up gets a real kick out of making candy from scratch. I think it is so neat that not only do you get to make something fun and yummy to eat, but you also are learning about the history and origin behind the treat.
I want to make sure everyone knows where they can get their hands on Glee Gum and Glee Kits, so you don't run into the same problem I had several months ago. Here is a link to their website and store locator: http://www.gleegum.com/retail-stores-locator.htm. While you are there, you can also check out an interesting photographic slide show on the process from tree to Glee.
So, Glee Gum has generously decided to share the Glee with several of you! Woohoo! Three lucky winners will receive 3 packs of Glee Gum (18 pieces per pack) & a money saving coupon. You will have your own chance to try out this one-of-a-kind natural way to chew gum!
