Product Description:

Secondary Description:

Inside each Make Your Own Gummies Kit, you'll find sour mix, colored and flavored Fair Trade sugar, powdered seaweed, dried seaweed, simple instructions, a story about carrageenan, and molding starch to make all kinds of shapes.

Publisher Description:

Make your own gummies from seaweed, right at home! Everything you need is included, and it's easy.

First you wash the seaweed and boil it for a few minutes, until the carrageenan is extracted. Then you take out the seaweed, mix in the sugar, boil it again, pour it in molds, and add the sour mix. That's all it takes to make your own yummy gummies!

Each kit makes about 15 delicious, sour gummy candies. The kit can be made on the stove or with a microwave. Adult supervision is recommended. A fun activity for classrooms, scout troops, birthday parties, home schools, date nights, and more. A great gift for kids (ages 8 & up), foodies, and candy lovers of all ages!

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!

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.
