CLOSED Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway: Choice of Glee Make Your Own Candy Kit

 About: Glee Gum
Verve, inc. - Manufacturers of Glee Gum
Verve is an independent, family-owned business, dedicated to linking world communities and creating environmentally and socially responsible products and activities.


In 1992, the concept for Verve was born when we visited an economically depressed chicle-producing community in Northern Guatemala. Up until then, we had never really thought about how chewing gum was made. When we realized its origins, we learned that prior to the synthetic resins, chicle was the basis of the entire industry. Our goal was to support chicle-harvesting by purchasing chicle. With this goal in mind, Verve was born, and with it our first and most popular product, the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.


Today, Verve provides a sustainable source of income for those communities while simultaneously offering fun, educational, and environmentally friendly activities for kids.
Our pioneering Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit has captivated the imaginations of thousands of children while helping them to learn more about the world around them. They are often used in classrooms where students are studying rainforest ecology, the history of food production, the chemistry of cooking, and the  interconnections in our global community.


As mentioned above, Glee not only makes gum, they also make CANDY KITS!!!


 I had the pleasure of making chocolate with my son with the easy to use chocolate kit! It helped my son to learn to follow directions while giving us something fun to do. Plus the chocolate was a great snack for the whole family.


It's easy & Fun to make your own chocolate from scratch!
Mixing elements of chemistry with world culture and history, this delicious kit contains everything you'll need to make 8 ounces of dark chocolate. Can be made on the stove or with a microwave - adult supervision is recommended! Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!


Inside each Make Your Own Chocolate Kits you'll find: organic cocoa butter, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, starter crystals, a temperature indicator, paper candy liners, instructions, and the story of chocolate.

All you have to do is melt the cocoa butter, add the cocoa powder and sugar. Stir, stir, stir until it cools to the right temperature; add the starter crystals so that the chocolate "tempers," and enjoy delicious home-made chocolate from scratch! By the way, you also get some cacao beans - we thought you might like to taste a few.
Each Chocolate Kit Makes 8 oz. of dark chocolate!

One Lucky winner will receive their choice of Make Your Own Kit which includes Chocolate, Chewing Gum or Gummies!
