The Fizzmaker

This story is making the rounds on the internets.

I’m fond of “what if” questions. This one goes, “What if you put a roll of Mentos into a 2 litre bottle of soda?”

The answer is, well, a mess.

I’m not about to try it myself, I’m going to believe the video on the webpage as authentic (and of course the chemistry makes perfect sense).

Put a roll of Mentos into a carbonated drink and you do get a foamy, sticky eruption.

I’m wondering if it would work just as well with seltzer?

  1. I covered this a while back:

    Looks fun - I might try it soon - I have a feeling I will have a bunch of leftover Mentos soon.
