Mentos And Diet Soda

Fizz Fizz. Surely by now we all know diet soda and Mentos just don't mix well. Unless you want to make an explosive rocket out of a soda bottle under extreme pressure, or a soda fountain.

It seems that when you add just a few mentos to a bottle of diet coke, there is some sort of chemical reaction causing the soda to foam up and shoot out the bottle like a geyser. Close the bottle with a cap after adding the mentos and now you have a soda bottle under extreme pressure. Throw the soda bottle into the air and you now have a soda bottle rocket after it makes contact with the ground. The youtube video below shows us in demonstration the foay pressure results when the two are combines
A man wearing a suit covered with mentos jumped into a tank filed with diet coke? Watch!
