diet soda, mentos and goggles Drop Mentos candy into a two-liter bottle of any diet soda, and the soda will erupt like a geyser that puts all sixth-grade vinegar and baking soda projects to shame, said the The Tartan Web site.

This reaction has been stunning people all over the world with its mysterious, yet sensational eruption.

The Diet Coke and Mentos reaction is a fun demonstration in chemistry and physics classes that deals with important concepts in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, surface sicience and the physics of explosions.

These soda geyers have made a lasting impression in science labs around the world and have recieved national attention. The experiment was featured on an episode of Mythbusters. There is even a Guinnes World Record of 1,911 Diet Soda and Mentos rockets that were simultaneously set off on June 19, 2008.
