Homemade Gum … Yes, You Can Actually Make It – And It’s GOOD

This is not really a recipe that you would do over and over but I just thought it was pretty cool share.

It is not everyone that can say they know how to make their own bubble gum. I actually made this for the simple fact to tell people that I made my own bubble gum LOL.

Knowing that I would probably not make this over and over again, I decided to divide it before pouring in the strawberry flavoring. I wanted something different than just strawberry flavored gum, what I decided to do in addition to the strawberry flavoring, was adding mint flavoring to the other half and I was pretty pleased with both flavors.

So if you are thinking of making these recipe more than once there are different flavors you can use.


1/3 Cup gum mix
3 Tablespoons of corn syrup
1 Teaspoon of glycerol
Half a teaspoon of citric acid
1/2-2 Teaspoons of flavouring
Food colouring
3/4 Cup of powdered sugar
