Giggle for the day - Mentos and Coke car

Don't tell GM about this.  They are probably looking for a replacement for the Volt right about now.


  1. bet that track was crazy sticky until the next heavy rain!

  2. HA! Wonder if seltzer water would of worked better?

  3. Weer'd - you know, I didn't even think about that, but you're right. Nothing like walking through a sticky spill and dealing with that rippy/sticky shoe thing.

    Flier - I've never really looked into the reason why it is always diet Coca Cola that seems to be used. I'm sure the Mentos simply cause a rapid release of the CO2, which should work with Seltzer and be a lot less messy. I typed that, then did a little reading and, apparently the aspartame and potassium benzoate in the diet soda has a significant part to play in the reaction. So, maybe not.
