Followed instructions. Didn't turn out well and didn't have a good taste. Plastic molds melted. Found a much simpler recipe, using gelatin and silicone trays online, much less expensive and worked out way better.

      My nephew had surgery on his hand and he was bored out of his mind. The product gave us something to do together and it was fun for him. Now he has everyone trying his gummies.

      My toddler wanted to make gummy bears. We followed the instructions by the book and we got goo we could not use to fill the mold tray. I did it again without instructions and it worked better.

      Comments about Thames & Kosmos Gummy Candy Lab Science Kit:

      I wish I would have done more research on the ingredients the food dye and carrageenan are both foods we are trying to avoid and we bought it mainly because our daughter wanted to make them. Fun idea just wishing for a healthier option.

      Comments about Thames & Kosmos Gummy Candy Lab Science Kit:

      This was a fun kit to have for an 8 year old. The candy wasn't hard to make at all. The only thing that could some work would be to add more flavors. This kit only comes with cherry and lemon flavors.
