Glee Gum Review & Giveaway



Don't you just love gum? It brings you back to childhood when you'd try to blow the biggest bubble and have it pop all over your face, only to have you peal it all off and try again.

These days, there is so much horrible things in gum that I'm downright scared to even chew it anymore!

Sorbitol, Candelilla Wax, Maltitol, and of course Aspartame are just a few commonly found additives now. People don't realize that even though you're not actually EATING gum, these harmful ingredients still are quickly absorbed into the blood stream.

Instead of skipping the gum all together, how about opting for all natural? Which brings me to my next point, boy do I have the company and product for you ;)

Cue Glee Gum!

Here is some information directly from their website:

"Glee Gum is all-natural, gluten-free chewing gum with no artificial coloring, flavoring, sweeteners nor preservatives. Glee Gum is the only gum in North America made the old-fashioned way, with chicle! Chicle is a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforests of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Not Glee Gum! Glee Gum uses chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rainforest. Chicle is also what gives the gum such great, long-lasting chewing texture! Glee Gum is a “green” gum right down to the packaging, which is made from biodegradable, recycled cardboard. So chew with Glee, naturally!"

Not only does Glee have a line of all natural chewing gum, but they also have make your own candy kits that help educate your children on where ingredients in their sweet treats come from while also teaching them about the rainforest, ecology and enviornmental issues, chemistry, mathmatics, and measurements, nutrition, and so much more!

For my review, I was sent a plethora of different flavors from their Glee Gum line, some mini boxes and some full boxes.

Some of the flavors in my goodie envelope consisted of the traditional Peppermint and Spearmint, and branched out from there; Cinnamon, Very Berry, Tangerine, and my personal favorite, Bubble Gum.

They even included their newest product, Sugar Free!

I quite enjoyed trying out all the different flavors and knowing that I wasn't doing any harm to my body by eating them. My only complaint would be the pieces loose their flavor quite fast, however with them being as small as they are, it's understandable.

Either way, you just pop a few more in and chew away ^.^

Aside from their products, Glee Gum's website offers several different things to educate the consumer; Educational Guides to their candy kits, a Store Guide to find their products nearest you, and even a video detailing from Tree to Glee!

Make sure to like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter @gleeguy, and of course their Blog.

So, how would you like to receive some natural, chewy goodness?

I love Glee Gum! Every time I see it by the register at a store I buy it. While it is true that technically the nearest store that carries it is
7.34 miles away, I actually pick it up at Whole Foods every time I go there (which is about once a month). I pretty much exclusively chew the Peppermint flavor.

The discontinuance of Glee Gum at Trader Joe's (where I go every week) was a tragedy! :(

While I have only ever had Peppermint Glee Gum I might really like Tangerine All Natural Glee Gum I think.
