Nothing says I love you quite like a homemade treat! Even better is a homemade treat that is allergy-free, gluten-free, and vegan! These gummies are made simple with immunity-boosting pomegranate juice, sugar, and Living Jin’s agar-agar. Agar-agar is similar to gelatin, but is instead made from red algae, making it 100% plant-based! This additive is what allows the gummies to take the precise shape of whatever mold you pour it into. In a short hour and a half, you’ll have homemade gummies ready that are perfect for individual wrapping - making them an ideal gift for a loved one on Valentine’s Day!
