Gleeful greetings to you! We’re so happy for the opportunity to introduce ourselves and our company, Verve, Inc.

Verve’s products include Glee Gum, an award-winning natural chewing gum line, Glee Gum Pops, the only natural gum-filled lollipops on the market, and Make Your Own Candy Kits, a line of educational activity kits for kids. The pops and kits are packaged with the help of supported employment.
Glee Gum: NATURAL CHEWING GUM.
No artificial flavors. No artificial colors (like Blue 2 Lake or Red 40). No artificial sweeteners (like Aspartame or Acesulfame K). No preservatives (like BHT). Non-GMO Project Verified. Classic Glee Gum is sweetened with Fair Trade cane sugar and brown rice syrup. Sugar-Free Glee Gum is sweetened with 100% xylitol from American birch and beech trees for added dental benefits.
Packaged in recyclable material (no blister packs) and made with chicle, a tree sap harvested sustainably from the rainforest of Central America. Once all chewing gum was made with chicle, but today most gum is made entirely from synthetic stuff. Glee Gum uses chicle because it helps to conserve the rainforest, giving trees more value standing than chopped down for lumber.
World's 1st Fairtrade Chewing Gum
All 6 flavors of Classic Glee Gum— Peppermint, Cinnamon, Bubblegum,Tangerine, Triple Berry, and Spearmint— are Fairtrade certified. So are the Make Your Own Chocolate Kits and Gummies Kits.
The FAIRTRADE Certification Mark guarantees that the cane sugar sweetening Classic Glee Gum and the Gummies Kit, as well as the cocoa powder and cocoa butter in the Chocolate Kit, meet the social, economic and environmental standards set by Fairtrade International. Fairtrade International, a non-profit organization, oversees an alternative system of global trade in which farmers and workers are paid a fair and stable price for their produce, regardless of changes in the market.
