Coke and mentos volcano?!

Question: Coke and mentos volcano?
Will it work with other sodas? I was told about a joke you can play, by putting the mentos inside ice cubes, and putting the ice in someone's soda, but the person I was thinking of doesn't like coke.


All CARBONATED drinks have reaction with mentos(the one which is not waxy,smooth on its outer surface)

When the candies come into contact with the liquid, a reaction causes the formation of foam at a rapid rate.Diet Coke, in combination with the gelatin and gum arabic ingredients of the Mentos, all contribute to formation of the foam.

The structure of the Mentos is the most significant cause of the eruption due to nucleation. Myth-busters reported that when flavored Mentos with a smooth waxy coating were tested in carbonated drink there was hardly a reaction, whereas standard Mentos added to carbonated drink formed an energetic eruption, affirming the nucleation-site theory. According to Myth-busters, the surface of the mint Mentos is littered with many small holes, allowing CO2 bubbles to form very rapidly and in great quantity, in turn causing the jet of foam.


Coke and mentos works, only way try it out with another soda see what happens.

I hered somewhere they do work but no where near as good as coke

coke works idk about others
