Review: Glee Gum

Glee Gum  is all natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle. It comes in SIX great flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, tangerine, bubblegum, spearmint, and triple berry. Glee Gum is the #1 healthy alternative to synthetic chewing gum and bubble gum! With no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners (no aspartame), or preservatives, it's easy to chew Glee-fully!  description taken from here.

Glee Gum sent me some products to review.  They sent me 1 pack of Spearmint gum, 1 pack of Cinnamon gum, 1 pack of Wee Glee gum, and 4 mini packs of Glee gum in the flavors, Bubblegum, Tangerine, Triple Berry, and Peppermint.  That means that I got to try out one of every flavor of gum that Glee has to offer.

The gum is shaped in little chick lets, which a harder outer shell.  Chomping down, flavor immediately explodes and hits your taste buds.   I really liked the cinnamon gum’s flavor.  It was nice and cinnamon-y, but it wasn’t overpowering, which some cinnamon gums can be.  The same can be said with the mint gums.  They were nice and refreshing, but they were not overpowering in their mint flavor (something I enjoyed since I cannot stand chewing strong mint gums).  I loved the Bubblegum flavor, it was nice and sweet and very flavorful.  The Triple Berry was also very nice.  It is made up of Strawberry, Raspberry, and Blueberry.  The flavor leans more towards the Raspberry side rather than the Strawberry (again, something I rather liked because I am not a huge strawberry fan).

The Wee Glee are mini chick lets.  They are all mixed together in one box.  The flavors are: Banana, Bubblegum, Triple Berry, and Tangerine.  Since I already said how much I liked the berry and bubblegum, let me jump right into the other two flavors.  These were my least favorite of the gums I received.  The tangerine was a bit overly sweet for me, but the flavor fades quickly so it isn't that much of a problem.  The Banana tastes very much like a banana.  That said, I don't like bananas so it makes sense I did not care for the banana flavored gum.

Besides from selling gum, Glee also has Make-Your-Own-Candy kits.  These kits allow kids to make their own chocolate, chewing gum, or gummy candy.  You can check those out on the Glee Gum website by clicking the link above.

For 1 pound of gum you only have to pay $10.
And, the Make Your Own Candy kits are only $13 each.  I think the kits would be a really cool idea to get the kids for the holidays.

Thanks to Marguerite and Glee Gum for sending me the gum samples to review!
