Step 1: Preparing the Gum

Unwrap the gum, but don't throw away the wrapper! You will need it later.

Step 2: Making the Outer Layer

Now, get out your salt, tarragon/curry, and the red spice of your choice(paprika/chili powder/cayenne pepper). Boil about 2 cups of water, and put the spices in the water, like a soup. Add 1/4 of a cup of the spices, and about 1 cup of salt.* While this is boiling, the ice in a bowl.
*NOTE: if you are adding the optional spices, put them in now as well.(1/4 cup of crushed red pepper/juice from 4 jalapenos)

Step 3: Adding the Gum

When the mixture has boiled, pour some of it into the plate, and drop the gum in. Let it "marinate" for 2-4 minutes. By that time, the gum will be soft, so strain the liquid out and put the gum in the ice to cool for 2-3 minutes.

Step 4: Wrapping Up

When the gum is solid, dry it off and wrap it in the wrapper again.

Step 5: Find a Victim

And you're done! Just find a poor sucker to try it on, such as:
-Younger people
-People you can't stand
This gum is a great trick for anybody who always wants whatever you have, and for April Fools Day.
