  1. Nice post – I like Glee Gum and Endangered Species chocolate too; good choices! I’m currently running a competition on my blog where you can win a pack of every flavor of Glee Gum. The aim is to increase awareness on ethical consumerism, so to enter the contest you need to name one social or environmental factor to consider when buying gum.
