Well, I was pleasantly surprised!
When I looked into the company Glee Gum, I loved the fact that all their products are All Natural. Their gum and kits have been well researched, and have a history. Not only do your kids (or yourself) get to make chocolate, but the kits are also educational. You can go on their website and find a photographic slide show on the process from tree to Glee and an education section.
The chocolate Making Kit states that it is appropriate for kids ages 8 & up, so I hired my niece, my nephew and their friend to try the kit with me. Everyone was very excited!
The directions were very well explained, and I loved the fact that they explain why we have to do each process. The kit also keeps you busy while you have to wait for some of the steps. It includes real cocoa beans, and you can personalize your chocolates with ingredients from home. The kids were definitely able to make the chocolate on their own, and I think even younger children would enjoy watching and helping. The whole process took about 20 minutes, then we just had to wait until the chocolate finished cooling in the fridge.
The results! Very positive, the chocolate tastes great. They enjoyed making the kit, and eating the chocolates!!
Glee Gum also has a Gummy Kit, a Chewing Gum Kit, and of course gum, which would be fun to try.
