Re: mentos and coke.

Wow! The vids I saw was people just sliding the mentos (quickly) into the bottle which is sitting on a surface then getting out of the way as it sprays upward. One of the clips on youtube is some sort of TV talk show, and they say that they're only using diet Coke because it's less sticky than regular coke.

As for how to launch the bottles, early on in the Carlos posted, if you listen closely at the beginning it sounds like one of the cohorts asks if the lid is loose enough. So, I would guess you dump the Mentos in, seal it up, but not too tight, then bounce it off the pavement. Let us know how wet you get.

Ever wonder who comes up with this stuff? It's all over youtube. Someone must've said, hey let's put some Mentos in Coke and see what happens...

Re: mentos and coke.

What happens if I drink a bottle of diet coke and swallow a whole package of mentos? (I doubt that I could do that...)



It would be like a SuPeRsOnIc throw up...a human geizer...bahhh

Re: mentos and coke.

You can launch just about any carbonated soda bottle by hitting the cap on the ground just right. Some work better than others. We sell Vernor's (Ginger Ale) and those bottles FLY!!!

Re: mentos and coke.

finally a worthwhile use for coke.

(it says something about our corpulent society that we can be so wasteful)

Re: mentos and coke.

We used to toss coke 2 liters down to the asphalt on their caps & watch them rocket off - yes, it was a bit messy!!

Re: mentos and coke.

Pretty cool, but reckless and inconsiderate to be doing it next to peoples cars and homes. Other than that, it'd be awesome to do in an empty parking lot

Re: mentos and coke.

You can do this with rear routed ibanezes too. Just pour the coke and mentos into the rear cavity where the electronics are and then do the guitar strap spin (like in the other video) and while it's up in the air over your head unbutton the strap and let it fly! When it comes down and hits, it'll take off like one of them 2-liters. Seriously.
