Mentos and Diet Coke ... For Science!

Just when you thought all the Mentos had been dropped in all the Diet Cokes in the world, we thought that a certain discipline was needed that was missing from the current offerings.

For instance:

Can you use Sugarless Mentos? Fruit flavored?
Does it work with Caffeine Free Diet Coke? C2? Regular Coke?
Can you do it twice with the same Diet Coke?
Does using more Mentos change anything?

Anyhow, these and other amazing questions answered, in our video:

For Science!
