About Experiment #156: Chain Reaction Gone Wrong
Experiments #156A and #156B demonstrate the basic Coke & Mentos domino mechanism: when one geyser shoots up, it knocks a cup off the top, and that pulls a string that triggers the next geyser. When it doesn't work quite the way it should, Fritz takes a hit for the team!

How Does This Work?
What makes the soda fly out of the bottle? Will you explode if you drink Coke and eat Mentos? Click here to find out!

Try This at Home!
Yes, you can try this at home! You can get your own Coke & Mentos Kit, which includes nozzles just like the ones we use, or you can click here to learn how you can do it with stuff from around your house.
