Hawaiian Punch® Lip Gloss / Lip Balm / Chapstick®

So, we've all had chapped lips, right? Yuck.

And most of us had Hawaiian Punch as kids, Yum. Here's a fun idea to get some tastiness on your lips (or those of your kids) while you treat the chapped lips. It can also be used as a lip gloss or even a party favor for kids.

Basically, all you need to do is mix petroleum jelly (petrolatum) with Hawaiian punch and process it correctly and WHAMMO, you have Hawaiian Punch lip gloss.

What you will need:
* Sugar-free sweetened Hawaiian Punch powdered mix (1 packet)
* Petroleum jelly
* Small glass container with lid or lip balm tube
* Teaspoon
* Chopstick or similar to stir
* Microwave or other rapid heating source
* pot holder/hot hands
* Refrigerator or other cooling source

Step 1: Add 3 teaspoons petroleum into container
Step 2: Microwave to dissolve to smooth consistency, stirring every ~30 sec
Step 3: Add Hawaiian Punch mix while liquefied -- more = stronger flavor and darker shade
Step 4: Stir, cover/seal, and cool in refrigerator to harden

VOILA, you have Hawaiian Punch lip balm and saved some money!
