The packaging is fun!
They give you pretty easy step by step instructions to follow.
What I love is that they have a whole story about why gummy candies are made out of seaweed.
The story is about a family from the Philippines. They started a seaweed farm. Some people eat seaweed in their salads or in sushi. Seaweed has carrageenan and agar in it to make your own gummies. Other things that have seaweed in them are: Toothpaste, cottage cheese, deodorant, dog food, pudding, and more. Gummy candies are made from gelatin. A lot of other foods like marshmallows and jello have gelatin in them to. Gelatin helps build strong bones.
The Kit Came With These Powders and a Dry Piece of Seaweed:
How to Make Your Own Gummies:
Step 1: Soak the dried seaweed in a bowl of water.
Step 3: Mix the powdered seaweed with 1/2 cup water. Stir and do not worry about the lumps. Add the dried seaweed to the mixture.
Step 4: Heat on the stove top, or microwave in an appropriate container. We made ours in the microwave. Heat for 2 minutes, or until it bubbles.
Step 5: Take out the dried seaweed with a fork. Stir in the colored sugar. Heat it for 1 minute, or until it foams up again.
Step 6: Pour the mixture into the molds.
Step 7: Take the gummies out of the mold, wipe off any mold powder, put them in a baggie, add the sour mixture and shake. After that it's eating time.
If you have left overs make new molds, heat the gummy mixture again and pour once more.
My boys liked them. We did find that they get sticky if left out. We put them in the fridge.
