Because to become a solid, ice has to lose its heat that's present in liquid form.

In the case of ice the water have low energy. The ice cubes will take energy from the water to get converted into liquid and thus give a cooling effect.

Use ice/ice cubes to harden the gum. Once it gets cold the gum will be easier to get it out. Good Luck !

A cold glass of water sometimes causes water vapour from the surrounding air to condense onto the surface of the glass. The same thing happens with ice cubes, but instead the water droplets condensing on the surface, they will instantly freeze and 'weld' ice cubes together. They also can stick together if put into a drink, where again, the water in the drink near the surface of the ice cube may get cold enough to freeze and cause the ice cubes to fuse together.
