Glee Make Your Own Gummies Kit

Hey Neighbors!

I really like the Glee Kits ($13.95).  We have reviewed a couple of different ones over the past two years.  My daughters really have fun creating with these kits.  This time she made Gummies.  The two girls (12 and 15) of them did this one by themselves.


Here is the contents of the kit.
The kit includes:
Sour Mix
Colored and Flavored Sugar
Powdered Seaweed
Seaweed
Molding Starch
Instructions and the story of Carrageenan

This is dried seaweed.  Yes, seaweed.

Directions.
You wash the seaweed and boil it a few minutes until the carrageenan is extracted.

According to the directions you wash the seaweed and then boil it a few minutes to extract the carrageenan.  After you do this you can discard the seaweed.  You then mix in the sugar, boil it again and thenpour it into the molds you have made in the molding starch.

Molding Starch.


Becoming gelatinous.
 They really had fun doing this by themselves.  They did share the gummies with their siblings.


Add coloring and flavoring.

Stirring!
From the Box:
We're all used to eating food from plants that grow in the earth-carrots, corn, raspberries... But how about food from plants that grow in the sea?  You might think of seaweed as that slimy green stuff you find on the beach.  But it's more than that; people in Japan and China have been eating "sea vegetables" for hundreds of years.  Even though we're not used to collecting and eating whole seaweed here, it's there hiding in many things we eat and use every day- like toothpaste!
Almost done.


Setting up.

Coating with sugar.

If you visit the Glee Gum website there is a tab for a store locator.  This way you can find the store closest to you that sells Glee Gum.  Also if you visit the newsletter page, there is a coupon you can use for Glee Gum.

One neighbor will receive a Make Your Own Gummies Kit from Glee.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a Glee Kit for review purposes. All quotes in red are taken from the sponsor's website.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
