Diet Coke and mentos questions?!

Question: Diet Coke and mentos questions!?
Would eating mentos and then drinking coke kill you!? Is it any coke that causes this!? Would drinking coke then eating mentos harm you!? My parents say a child in brazil died because of these!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No it wouldnt!. They did that on mythbusters, they used a cow stomach and did the reaction inside of it!. it didnt explode or anything, you wouldnt die!. it probably woudnt feel real great though haha!.

(diet coke works best)Www@FoodAQ@Com

i dont think it would it would just let off a big fizz in your mouth but if you want to know if it will harm you take a bottle of diet coke and put a mentos in it but be sure to screw on the cap before it exploads in your face!. but don't eat mentos and diet coke together if your parents said no!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

depends, are u keeping the coke in your mouth, then popping a mento in!? ir swallowing the coke, chewing up the mento and THEN swalling!.!. if u did the second one, i wouldn't think it would do that much cuz its well, chewed up!. if u did the first one, well, we will see what happens 2 u!. GO 4 IT! if u die, don't sue me!.!.!. ?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Search youtube using Mentos and Coke!. They have a couple of men that dropped mentos in containers of coke!. They were trying to set a record on how many containers they could get to spew all at once!. Watch that and see if you want to combine the two in your stomach!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I believe its diet coke or rootbeer!. I don't believe it would have the same chemical effect in your stomach do to the enzymes and acids, but if it did you would just do some serious burping or throwing up!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I imagine that this is some sort of urban legend !.I would imagine the woest thing that would happen is you'd get a nasty taste in your mouth from the mentos ( minty) mixed with the sweet taste of coke!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'm not sure if it would kill you but i wouldn't try it!. yes it is any coke!. i would go to Discovery channel!.com i remember the mythbusters did something on this but i cant really remember haha

Myth Busters tested this - and it does create a significant reaction!. Whether or not it would kill you is debatable - you would probably just throw up!.


if you are eating MINt mentos and any diet soda you could projectile vomit!. It's some coating on the mentos that causes diet soda to react that way!.!.

I've never heard of anyone dying from it!.!.!.!.my brothers do that stuff for funWww@FoodAQ@Com

nope!. you wont feel anything!. chewing the mentos makes the whole thing not work, and so does pouring the coke!. so if you could directally inject your stomach with diet coke and mentos, you'l be fineWww@FoodAQ@Com

parents frequently mention children in africa or south america, when they don't have a clue!.!.!.!.!.

it works in the bottle not in your stomach!.!.

children in africa/south america don't like lima beans either!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, my friend does it all the time, its annoying!.
It might mess with your stomach a bit!.
But no, you can do it!.
Unless you have an uneasy stomachWww@FoodAQ@Com

No you wouldn't die!.
There's a trick where you put a mentos in two liters of diet coke and then shake up the bottle and watch it blow up, though!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I've never heard of such a thing!. That seems silly!. They would have to have a warning sign on the mentos and the coke to keep people from dying!. Think about it!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Children in Brazil can't afford Mentos or Diet Coke!. Your parents are liars!.

It shouldn't kill you!.
