That's a new one.

Did you see the show where the Myth Busters did the Mentos and Diet Coke experiments? They got a 32 foot geyser - of course it took a special cap. Awesome.

All these guys have too much free time. They should take up quilting.

you could do something similar with pressed baking soda and vinegar, Nicole.

Im trying to figure out how the set up is: a mento in each bottle, that is knocked into the coke by the pressure of the bottle before it going blooey?

Too much time and a fair piece of disposable cash!

If you look close, when the prior bottle bursts, it pulls a string that is tied to a pin, like a grenade. When the pin is pulled, the Mentos, which are stacked in the nozzle, drop into the diet Coke.
