HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: Make Your Own Gummies Kit

Make your own gummies out of seaweed! Everything you need is included in this kit and it's easy! You can make your own gummi bears, gummi worms, gummi fish or any other shape. Make gummies on the stove or with a microwave. Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school groups. Adult supervision is recommended. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!

Inside each Make Your Own Gummies Kit you'll find: sour mix, colored and flavored sugar, powdered seaweed, seaweed, molding starch, instructions and the story of carrageenan.

All you have to do is wash the seaweed and boil it for a few minutes until the carrageenan is extracted. Then take out the seaweed itself, mix in the sugar, boil it again, pour it in the molds, and then add the sour mix! That's it - you have made your own yummy gummies!

I know that a lot of people get these kits for their kids but I decided to get one for my husband. He is obsessed with gummies - gummy worms, gummy bears, anything gummy. Every time I go grocery shopping, I end up buying a lot of candy to support his habit. When I got the chance to review the Make Your Own Gummies Kit, I got really excited because I like that it's healthier than the gummies I normally buy him. Plus, we have a lot of fun trying new things together and I've always wanted to learn how to make my own candy. It was a very simple process and the results were fantastic! James is really picky when it comes to his candy, so when he gave me a smile and nod after eating his first piece, I knew we had a winner. I recommend this for candy-lovers of all ages.
