It's amazing how a mix of Coke and mentos can do that, like a geiser or a volcano... and there's a lot of videos doing that experiment on the internet... specially at Google video

But a video that is becoming really famous here in Mexico... is this one:

and if you pour a lil bit out, and drop them in and quickly slap the cap on, then throw it hard cap-first against cement, it will blow off and the bottle will fly off like a rocket. it worked for me, but it flew straight into me, lol

Most hilarious thing...ever.

it was cool when I first saw this little experiment, but now its kind of overdone. Everyone all over the web is trying it...

I remember having a sugar craving big time one day at work years ago. All I had was Diet Pepsi, and that wasn't good enough. So I thought, well I'll just add some sugar to this....

It didn't quite do what the 2liter bottles do with Mentos, but it did react strongly. All the carbonation went bye-bye and what was left tasted, uhh, not good. I'd have been better off eating the sugar raw.


Oh, about the DPSU warnings on their labels - I've always wondered who must have sued DPSU at some point about caps popping off. Someone must have had to at some point or they'd not be using that disclaimer on them. I'm surprised some gold-digger type hasn't tried to get a Pepsi or Coke product to pop it's lid on them so they can sue for big bucks....

I'm surprised some I can not remember the details but I believe it was the late 70's early 80's and involved a bottle of 7-UP.

i actually saw this experiment done on a cable news channel this week. they used diet coke and mentos in front of a live audience and... va-voom! it worked just like the video link above.

what causes that to happen, exactly?

i've had dr pepper caps fly off and hit me in the eyebrow before.

i put sour patch kids (the chewy candy you can buy at a movie theater) into a 20oz pet bottle of orange crush and the damn thing slowly erupted, like a hawaiian volcano.

I suppose baking soda would also do the trick, but that's a nice video

It was pretty fun!! I tried it with some of my friends and it was pretty cool. We are gonna have to build a funnel or something to see if we can get it to shoot up higher next time though!!

Now, an invention to make the geyser shoot even higher, and it also helps to keep you from getting wet.
