Glee Gum Verve, Inc.
Over the years, we have read about chicle, but never before had we knowingly experienced it. Chicle was first used as a chewing gum by the Mayans and this ancient tradition has been revived by Verve, Inc. in their Glee Gum. No synthetic gums, no artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors or preservatives, this is gum in its most natural and healthy form!
Chicle has a great chew to it! Our team thinks that it actually has more bounce than synthetic gum and the flavor is bright and vibrant with natural ingredients. Rather than using corn syrup, this gum uses rice syrup, natural flavorings and colorings, pure cane sugar and chicle which is harvested from Sapodilla trees in the rain forests of Central America. If you want an interesting photo tour of how chicle is harvested, check out this great link on the supplier’s site: http://www.gleegum.com/treetoglee.
We tested the Spearmint flavor and found it rich and minty. The flavor lasted a long, long time, and when the flavor finally faded away, the remaining gum did not taste yucky as some synthetic gums do. We haven’t tried the other flavors of Tangerine, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Bubblegum or Triple Berry, but imagine that their flavor and chew would be just as Zingy and long-lasting as the Spearmint.
Did you notice that this gum does NOT use artificial sweeteners? Good for them! In fact, they are so adamant against artificial sweeteners (like us!) that they have this to say about them: Glee Gum does not contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame, because we believe they can cause negative side effects. Here are a few articles on the subject:
All natural, great chew and flavor, you can now chew gum as much as you want! There are 18 pieces in each box, and six flavors to choose from. This is the gum that you can give to your kids without guilt. This is the gum that you can chew whenever you want a flavor lift and something that lasts longer than a piece of candy. Did you know that it contributes to concentration and relaxation? Chew, chew, chew! We highly recommend this gum…it’s Pure Zing!
