The Cool Thing about Diet Coke and Mentos
Okay, so do you all know about how mentos candy make diet Coke bottles erupt? It's really cool. I learned this about a year ago, and I tried it. It really works. You just buy some mentos and some diet Coke and then open up the bottle and plop the mentos in. I think if you put many mentos in at once, there is a bigger eruption. But just last week, when Jacob and I tried this in the backyard with a two-liter bottle of diet Coke and only one or two mentos, it "erupted" almost the entire bottle of diet Coke.

So, check out this video for diet Coke and mentos fun!

    Hi, Julie!
    Chris and I have talked about trying this after watching Mythbusters...sounds like fun.

    I'm enjoying reading your blog - can totally agree with the leather chair and Tom a fireplace for Christmas (a really early present!)and we've been happily using it.

    Hope all is well with you and yours,
    Carla Fast

  3. Hi Carla, how is the writing coming? Oh--there is a Mythbusters on diet Coke and mentos? Awesome! I need to see that one. We love Mythbusters.

  4. Hi Judy,
    Oh--thank you for the link. This is actually the one I was looking for, which my dear friend Carol Baicker-McKee showed Jacob and me when we were in Pittsburgh. Ah, the joys of the internet...

    Hey! The writing's coming along nicely (I think!)...and congratulations on the awards for Cheep! Cheep! How exciting is that!!

    Mythbusters did the trick with 4 Mentos and a diet Coke, if I remember correctly. We also enjoy watching Dirty Jobs.
