I don’t know about you, but I need some comic relief, and I need it now.
What happens when you toss some pieces of Mentos candy into a bottle of Diet Coke? The above video will show you what happens. There is a very violent reaction–which is still perfectly safe as long as you avoid doing certain idiotic things.
Don’t try this indoors.
Don’t put Mentos in your mouth and then pour in some Diet Coke. Please do not do this. They’re calling it a “challenge” and filming themselves doing it. If you insist on trying this, remember–this blog told you not to.
Don’t do this inside your car.
These mistakes are very easy to avoid–and you can still have fun with this simple, albeit simple-minded, home science experiment.
