Our own Mentos + Diet Coke attempt

Diet Coke + Mentos: Laboratory Edition
Preparing for the explosion
The recent spate of video clips depicting teens and college students dropping Mentos into 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke inspired one of the project managers to try it for herself. She showed up Friday with several bottles of Diet Coke, a few boxes of Mentos, and a determined look in her eye.

Today she wanted to find out if she got the Mentos into the Diet Coke bottle and then rapidly clamped the lid back on the bottle, would the pressure from the released carbon dioxide blow out the bottle?

Operative phrase: “rapidly clamped the lid back on the bottle”—QuickTime video evidence (opens in a new window).
