Gift Idea – Glee Gum’s Make Your Own Chocolate Kit

Glee Gum’s Make Your Own Chocolate KitI’ve made lots of things with chocolate in my time—chocolate cake, chocolate fudge, chocolate cookies, chocolate milk, pretty much anything that can be made from chocolate. But until now, I’ve never had the chance to make the chocolate itself. The Make Your Own Chocolate Kit from Glee Gum has all the components you need to actually make chocolate!

* Complimentary Product Received for Review.

The kit is designed for kids ages 8 and up, and it’s educational as well as fun. All of the ingredients for the chocolate are included (cocoa butter, confectioner’s sugar, starter crystals, and cocoa powder), as well as some paper candy liners, whole cacao beans, a temperature indicator, and an instruction sheet. It also contains information about where chocolate originates and the people who grow the cacao trees.

I was eager to try my hand at making chocolate, but I thought it would be a lot more fun to hold onto my kit until my sister visits so we can make it together. She is a lifelong chocoholic, so I know she’ll enjoy the process of making our own chocolate and learning about the history and origins of cacao. I’m really looking forward to bonding with my sister over chocolate!

For kids (and curious adults like me) who enjoy learning about how common foods are made, Glee Gum also has a Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit and a Make Your Own Gummies Kit. Any one of these kits would make a great gift for the holidays, but if you can’t decide which one to get, the Candy Kit Combo includes all three kits. And if your gift recipient really enjoys making their own chewing gum, you can buy bulk Gum Base, too.

Of course, Glee Gum also makes gum, but not just any gum. Their USA-made chewing gum is all natural, with no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. It’s also preservative free, gluten free, and Non-GMO Project Verified. Interestingly, Glee Gum is made with chicle, which is sap of the sapodilla tree, sustainably grown and harvested in the Central American rainforest. As you might expect, Glee Gum comes in several flavors, including peppermint, bubblegum, tangerine, cinnamon, and mixed berry, as well as sugar-free varieties sweetened with xylitol from American birch and beech trees.

    All these kits sound great, but I love chocolate. Thus the chocolate kit would be my favorite.

  2. The kits all sound like fun. My grandchildren love their gummies so they would get a kick out of the make your gummies kit and I am a chocolate fanatic so that would be fun for me.

    I have seen the other two kits and sent them to a nice who really enjoyed them. Its a bit of science, a bit of fun and a lot of eating- she likes all three ! This chocolate kit sounds like another fun one. I might have to consider this for her. I know she would like it.

  4. I love these Glee Gum guys, they are very witty salespeople. The gum use to be in Trader Joes, but no more. I’ll have to go find some.

  5. I think my boys would love to make their own chocolate. I love this idea and I think kids can learn so much from this! Great find!!

  6. We would have so much fun with this kit at our house. I would also love to give this as a gift this holiday season thank you for sharing this one.
