Glee Gum Review & Giveaway

*Giveaway is closed. Stay tuned for winner announcement.*

I'm a gum fan. I started chewing it back when I quit smoking and it kind of stuck with me, so to speak. I like the chewing action. I like the different flavors. I like how it settles my stomach after a big meal. So when I heard about all natural Glee Gum, I was intrigued.


Does it concern you that you can't pronounce half of the ingredients listed on your regular brand of chewing gum? Are you a vegetarian and want to make sure your chewing gum is too? Check out Glee Gum. It might just be your perfect solution.

Glee Gum is gluten-free and all natural with no artificial colorings, sweeteners or preservatives.

Glee Gum is also Vegetarian, Additive Free, Lactose Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free, Casein Free, Egg Free, Yeast Free, Nut Free, and Peanut Free.

*Glee Gum is also soy-free, but it is made in a plant where other products containing soy lecithin are made*


Glee Gum is made with chicle, a natural tree sap harvested sustainably from the rain forests of Central America. All chewing gum at one time was made with chicle, but then companies turned to synthetics. Glee Gum is now the only company in North America using chicle to give their gum that great chewing texture. They use chicle because it is an eco-friendly way to help conserve the rain forest. Glee Gum also keeps their packaging eco-friendly, making the boxes from biodegradable, recycled cardboard.


Glee Gum is a hard, candy-coated chiclet style gum. It comes in 6 great flavors: Cinnamon, Spearmint, Peppermint, Triple Berry, Tangerine and Bubblegum. Glee Gum also comes packaged in Mini Glee packs (4 pieces per pack) and in a 1 oz. Wee Glee Gum variety box (containing a mix of 4 flavors: Tangerine, Bubblegum, Triple Berry and new Banana!)


I really enjoyed the gum that Glee sent me to try! I really like the firmer texture of the gum. I find, sometimes, that some chewing gums are too soft or stringy. Glee Gum lets you feel like you're really chewing something, if that makes sense. The flavors are great too. I think my favorite is the Cinnamon. It's a strong cinnamon flavor without being too biting. I've always been a fan of cinnamon gums, and this one was very good. I enjoyed the other flavors too. The fruity flavors were sweet and really tasty and the mint ones tasted really authentic.

Glee Gum also makes "make your own" candy kits to make your own gum, chocolate or gummy candies! Doesn't that sound like an activity your kids would love?! I think it sounds so fun! The kits are also all natural and eco-friendly!

You can purchase Glee Gum or Glee Make Your Own Candy kits online at GleeGum.com or check their store finder to store near you. (Whole Foods and Giant Food stores near me carry it.) They also have bulk bags of gum and t-shirts for sale on the website!

There's No Aspartame in Glee!
To really chew with Glee, you need your gum to be aspartame free! That's why Glee Gum is sweetened naturally
