From the makers of my favorite chewing gum, Glee Gum, comes an awesome gift set just in time for the holidays!
Why is this the perfect gift?
- It's useful!
- It's creative!
- It's healthier!
- It creates an opportunity for a fun memory!
The "Make Your Own Chewing Gum" Kit from Glee Gum ($13) is perfect for any age, except for those with braces (I can attest to the fact that it is incredibly difficult to get any type of gum off of metal dental work). Gum base refills are available for $6 and you receive double the amount of gum base, meaning your future batches will yield twice as much chewing gum! YUM!
It's useful - you will be creating a product that will happily be consumed!
It's creative - you may choose to use the cherry or cinnamon included or create your own flavor...peppermint and vanilla extracts sound delicious to me!
It's healthier - you know exactly what goes into this chewing gum and how much of it there is! If you've been to the store lately and looked at the back of ANY pack of gum (glee gum brand excluded), you will see a warning label for an ingredient called phenylalanine; this is an artificial sweetener that is a known neurotoxin. It makes your brain think something tastes good by stimulating the cells in the brain until they literally burst and die from the excitement. It's a tragic ingredient, and in rare instances, can kill people - hence the required warning label on the back of products containing it. The great thing about Glee Gum is that they do not use this ingredient or any other dangerous toxins...nope, what you see in the photo above is what their gum is made of: Corn Syrup, Sugar, Gum Base (tree sap based), Cinnamon.
It's a memory waiting to happen - buying a kit not only gives the giftee something to consume, but an activity to do and with that, tons of fun can be had!
