We'd love to win the 6-pack of gum. My daughter hasn't had gum in over a year; a feat for a 12 year old! We've been buying treats from the bulk bin such as chocolate covered almonds, yogurt pretzels, rice crackers. We are making it a point to bake something together once a week (like soft ginger cookies or banana bread) for snacks instead of buying in plastic. Our email is ecom8s@gmail.com

Thanks! My 12 year old daughter has not had gum in over a year after she read about what the ingredients actually were. I'm so proud of her! She'll be ecstatic to try this gum.

@Daxle My family loves my homemade tortillas so we no longer buy them in plastic. Here is the recipe:

4 c unbleached flour*

1 1/2 tsp baking powder*

1 1/2 tsp salt*

1/2 c organic butter, cut into 1" chunks

1 to 1 1/2 c warm water

To make vegan low-fat tortillas:  Instead of butter, take 1/2 c of the flour and blend it with 1/2 cup of vegetable/olive oil and freeze for 2 hours.  Then use in place of the butter.

1. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  (If you don't have a stand mixer, use a large bowl with a fork or pastry blender.)  On low speed, add the butter. When the butter is incorporated and the flour mixture looks crumbly, add the water in a slow stream with the mixer running, just until the dough sticks together and clears the side of the bowl.  NOTE: Don't add too much water... not only will the dough be sticky and difficult to work with... too much water makes for tough tortillas!  Knead briefly-- no more than 10 times-- until a smooth ball forms.  Shape into a cylinder and cover with a dish towel.  Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

2. After the dough has rested-- for 8"-9" tortillas-- divide the dough into 15 equal portions.  Shape each portion into a ball, cover with the dish towel and let rest for 20-30 minutes.

3. To roll out the tortillas, place the ball on your thumb and make an indention creating a "mushroom" shape.  The air pocket inside helps the dough roll out into a (near) perfect circle :)  Flatten the ball then roll it out into a thin circle just like you would for a pie crust.  Start from the center, making quarter turns often and never pressing the edges.

4. To cook the tortillas, heat an ungreased cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.  Place as many tortillas in the pan that will fit without overlapping.  Cook until bubbles start to form then flip to the other side.  Also, as bubbles form just take a spatula and press them down.  When the tortillas are done, the dough will look dry and have brown spots.
