Kids want to feel the normalcy of the day and celebrate the best we can. Absolutely. Dangerous to get out and trick or treat. You're going to give us solutions that we can make in the house. In the house. We're going to make these gummi worms right here and now. I have plain gelatin and the flavor essences. This is a chef's hat. You can make it with jell-o packs and much less water. I've made some flavored gelatins that are in these squirt bottles. To make the worms, this is groovy, watch this. All we're going to do -- you make -- this is sugar. Four cups of sugar. If you want to make sour worms, you can buy citric acid from the drugstore. It will make it so sour. Citric acid, that's readily available? In the drugstore. 100 degrees.
