Category Description for Make Your Own Candy Kits:

With a focus on the plant that produces the main ingredient for each of these treats, these kits are both educational and fun. There are few things kids love more than candy, and now that they can make their own, the sweets will become even more enjoyable! Each kit comes with absolutely everything you need and allows you to easily make the treat with a stove or microwave. Each kit also includes a story about where the candy originated and how the ingredients are harvested. The Chewing Gum kit makes the equivalent of 30-50 pieces of gum, now using a natural latex gum base harvested from rubber trees; the Chocolate kit makes the equivalent of 20 chocolates (8 oz.) using Fair Trade cocoa butter; and the Gummies kit makes about 15 sour gummy candies using flavored Fair Trade sugar and seaweed. These are almost as much fun to make as they are to eat!

Is there a recipe to follow with ingredient amounts so you can repeat the activity after you use up all of the included items?

BEST ANSWER: Well, probably, if you can find a source for the chicle (we did the chewing gum kit, not the gummies kit). I didn't keep my instructions, but it seems like the other ingredients were all pretty standard items--powdered sugar, corn syrup, flavorings. The kids LOVED making their own gum! It turned out pretty well, but not the greatest gum you'll ever chew. Still, the experience was definitely worthwhile.
