All Flavor Sweet Stack

Sweet Stacks for Snack Attacks

This month, we’ve got another surprise for you!

We are delighted to debut three new varieties of Sweet Stacks – handy, dandy towers of 16-piece Glee Gum boxes.

Pick from the All-Flavor Sweet Stack (11 boxes, 1 of each flavor we offer), the Classic Sweet Stack (6 boxes, 1 of each sugared flavor we offer), or the Sugar-Free Sweet Stack (5 boxes, 1 of each sugarless flavor we offer). They make great gifts, too!

And don’t forget, all web-store orders still include free mini samples of our new flavors (as supplies last). Hope your summer is going swimmingly!

Featured Fan Kaylee

Featured Fan: Georgia on our Mind

A Georgia mom recently wrote us a lovely letter about her daughter. Kaylee loves chewing gum. But, for medical reasons, she’s on a special diet: gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and dye-free. And finding dye-free gum can be tricky, as most gum contains artificial colors. Not all, though…

“You guys made it possible!” Kaylee’s mom reports. “We love Glee Gum and it meets my daughter’s dietary requirements, goodness with none of the bad stuff. We are so grateful to companies that go the extra mile in producing healthier options of gum and candy for our children.”

We’re so grateful for chums like Kaylee and her mom. Thanks!

Bulk Assorted Flavors

Less Packaging, More Savings

It’s not easy being green, especially when it comes to gum.

Most gum is chock-full of artificial ingredients and packed in un-recyclable blister packs. But we prefer natural gum, made with natural tree sap and packed in recyclable materials.

That’s why we’re especially pleased to offer Bulk Glee tubes. Each tube holds a pound or so of loose Glee Gum in any flavor, as well as assorted flavor medleys. It’s our biggest size, at the best value, with the least packaging.

Three cheers for Bulk Glee!

All About Gum Base - Glee Gum

The Sticky Subject of Gum Base

When you chew gum, what are you really chewing? The answer varies widely, depending on the gum. But writer Beth Terry has long been concerned with one potential ingredient in particular: plastic. And believe it or not, that ingredient happens to be in a lot of gum.

Synthetic materials often can be found in gum base, the indigestible part of gum that provides chewy texture. But the white, gooey stuff pictured below also provides chewy texture. It’s called chicle, and it’s the sustainably harvested tree sap that we use to make Glee Gum.

On her site My Plastic-Free Life, Beth Terry interviews our company president about how Glee came to be a plastic-free, natural alternative to conventional gum. Read on, and be sure to check out our page about gum base, too.

Featured Fan Kathleen

Featured Fan: A Chum Who Choo Choo Chews Wisely

“I always travel with Glee. It saves me from inner ear problems while taking off or landing in airplanes, satisfies me when the munchies hit, and – without high fructose corn syrup – does not irritate my sensitive gut.”

So says social worker Kathleen S. of Evans, GA. She also tells us that her “travel buddy” Peppermint Glee has accompanied her all over the world by train, plane, and ferry. She reports, “My chewing increases as my energy does, or perhaps it’s vice versa!”

Either way, we say, FULL STEAM AHEAD. And thanks for chewing (and sharing), Kathleen!
