Lucky Penny Thoughts: This was a fun kit to do. The kit does not include the molds because you can mold any shape you have around the house. The seaweed in the video was removed after the cooking process. It was accidentally removed when the video was edited. These taste different then gummies in the store because they are all natural and do not use gelatin. The process to make them from scratch is a great learning experience for kids.
▶▶ Product Info ◀◀ Inside each Make Your Own Gummies Kit you'll find: sour mix, colored and flavored Fair Trade sugar, powdered seaweed, dried 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! Each kit makes about 15 gummy candies. Enjoy!
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)!
