  2. Oh my gosh my nieces and nephews would absolutely love this. Reminds me of the nickelodeon slime but obviously you can eat this – even better!

  3. Oh, my goodness, this looks like so much fun! I’m pretty sure my kids are too young to control themselves with this right now, I can just see all of the slime disappearing into their mouths. I’ll definitely keep this in mind for when they are just a bit older!

  4. Am happy with the original gummy bear. Am not sure if I will like the slime idea 🙂
