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
Molding Starch
Instructions and the story of Carrageenan

This is dried seaweed.  Yes, seaweed.

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.

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.
