By Martha Li Slide: 3 of 10 auto-play pause previous next first speed 3. Mini Glee Gum Remember those tiny Chiclets boxes you used to get when you went trick-or-treating as a kid? The ones that only contained two pieces of gum? Those two pieces may have only lasted as long as their flavour, but there sure was something fun about shaking those little packets and thinking about the little boxes somehow always reminds us of Halloween loot. Here's today's healthier option: Mini Glee Gum is available in tangerine, triple berry, sugar-free lemon-lime and five other flavours. We’re quite certain the shaking quality will be a hit among today’s youngsters, too. $7 (21 boxes, four pieces per box), available at gleegum.com.
