Product Information: In 1992, the concept for Verve was born when the family visited an economically depressed chicle-producing community in Northern Guatemala. Up until then, they had never really thought about how chewing gum was made. When they realized its origins, they learned that prior to the synthetic resins, chicle was the basis of the entire industry. Their goal was to support chicle-harvesting by purchasing chicle. With this goal in mind, Verve was born, and with it their first and most popular product, the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.Kids make their own yummy gummy candy using the natural gelling ingredients found within seaweek carrageenan and ager. All ingredients are included! Includes story about the world's oceans and people living in coastal communities who grow and process seaweed. Perfect for fun and learning, at home, in the classroom or in any group activity. Makes the equilavent of 15 gummy candies.
Today, Verve provides a sustainable source of income for those communities while simultaneously offering fun, educational, and environmentally friendly activities for kids.
Their pioneering Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit has captivated the imaginations of thousands of children while helping them to learn more about the world around them. They are often used in classrooms where students are studying rainforest ecology, the history of food production, the chemistry of cooking, and the interconnections in our global community.
Verve is an independent, family-owned business, dedicated to linking world communities and creating environmentally and socially responsible products and activities.
My Opinion: My grandkids loved making their own gummies! With the Glee Gum Make your Own Gummies kit, it was very simple and they had a blast! I really like it that it is ALL Natural. They also loved learning about the story of how gum is made. They want to try the other kits now lol.
