New Jen's Horde

Diet Coke and Mentos

Davin heard this story on NPR today, and stopped by our corner drug store to pick up the supplies to try this experiment. Unfortunately, I didn't catch it on my camera (battery problem), although I do have a nice picture of our patio table covered with Diet Coke, oh so exciting.

Anyway, here is actual video for your pleasure. It was pretty much like that here, only outside and I think ours went a little higher with no pesky bathroom ceiling to hinder it.

I really wish I could have been there when this was first discovered. I have no idea what made them decide to try this, but I'm guessing there was some awed silence for at least a couple of seconds after the explosion. My horde actually went into a shocked hush at the sight. It lasted less than a second, but it was still kinda spooky.

That is soooo coool!!!
I'm going to have to try this!
Excellent. My daughter's first words upon seeing it was, "We gotta try this."
I've seen this before...and I'm dying to try it!!
lol okay this looks like fun!
I'm going to try it, I wonder if 'Extra strong mints' would have the same effect.

Thanks for the goldfish advise, we're going to give it a few more days and then decide what to do.

You're tagged! Check out my blog. ;)
Did you try it in your mouth? remember back when we were kids and they said drinking soda with poprocks could kill you...
I'm going to get Mentos & Diet Coke RIGHT NOW!
This is TOO cool!!

I'm so excited to do this! Thanks for the info!!!
Holy crapolla! That was awesome, but I wouldn't try it indoors. That waspretty cool!
We're doing this one on Easter for the family ;)

Oh, and dangit Jen, I really like the Amber alert system, but now I'm really really depressed.

"The Oklahoma State Police and the Purcell Police Department canceled the Amber Alert after the girl's body was found in the apartment complex in which she lived. The unidentified suspect is in custody at this time. "

They took down her picture I saw just hours ago. I'm sad.
You guys totally crack me up!
we did this last fall....the best part, according to my kids, was mommy falling on her big butt trying to back away quickly.
