Chew on this

It seems allergies are a really big deal these days. We have to be really careful what we bring into Amelia's school because of a few student allergies. Recently, my friend at A New Kind Of Normal posted a gluten-free Halloween candy list. She made me realize that an exciting holiday like Halloween could easily become a bit of a misery for kids with allergies. That's why I made sure to select gluten-free nut-free treats for our neighborhood trick-or-treaters. I want to make sure they can actually eat what I give.

I recently received a few samples of Glee Gum. As I delved deeper into their history and product information, I was pleased to see that Glee Gum is gluten, dairy, soy, and nut-free. It has no artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, or sweeteners. Glee Gum is also eco-friendly, made with rainforest chicle that is sustainably harvested. You can see the "tree to Glee" process in a neat photo slideshow here.

I enjoyed the little square pieces of Glee Gum. And the tiny Wee Glee Gum was even more fun! The flavors were enjoyable - tangerine is my favorite. And when I wanted that minty flavor, spearmint was just the right option. But you can try them all for yourself - Glee Gum comes in six mouth-watering flavors.

Glee Gum can be found at Cost Plus World Market and similar stores. Want to find the store closest to you? Visit their STORE LOCATOR.  You can also follow Glee Gum on Twitter: @GleeGum or find Glee-Gum on Facebook.

Verve, Inc., the company brains behind Glee Gum, also offer make-your-own-candy kits. When Amelia is older, we're definitely going to try these! What a fun idea for Christmas or birthday gifts. Kids and parents can make their own gummies, chewing gum, and chocolate. All wrapped up in a cute and entertaining kit.

Super simple giveaway. One of my Google Friend Connect followers is going to win a free case of Glee Gum! Choose from a Mini Glee Variety Pack (21 4-piece packs) or a case of Wee Glee Gum (8 1-oz. packs). Glee Gum can only ship within the continental U.S., so only those followers are eligible.
