Mentos and Diet Code

My son wanted to put a Mentos in a Diet Coke. The results are less than I had seen when others have done the same. Maybe the temperature of the Diet Coke matters.

What the . . .? Why the . . .?

That was purty cool. What was supposed to happen if conditions were "ideal"? Krakatoa?

How come I didn't know about this when I was a kid? I think we mixed baking soda and vinegar for fun. No doubt Coke and Mentos smell a WHOLE lot better than that experiment!

I can't decide which I like better. The geyser or watching the kids drink off the oozing bottle. This made me laugh out loud (and maniacally, too!).

I'm glad they were entertaining. We've done this a few more times. This morning, we did it in Evergreen, Colorado. It blew about 10 feet in the air and all the people present cheered and laughed. It's a great trick.
