purplesoup: Pop and Mentos

Thanks again to Viola Zuppa! She's captured my most successful Mentos and Diet Soda experiment to date! Check it out here:
purplesoup: Pop and Mentos. This was much better than the several fountains we produced over the past few weekends. The secret to increasing the height? Heat. Yes, by leaving the bottle of Sprite Zero in my Malibu all day, it reached a toasty temp. You just have to be very careful opening the thing when it's so hot. If it foams up, you've lost fountain height. A word to the wise...

I've seen that video. Imagine the possibilities.

I shudder to think.

The kids drank the soda before we could try it. But I bought another bottle yesterday. Maybe this weekend we'll give it a shot. I'll try to get the other BA to tape it.
