What If You Drink Diet Coke and Mentos?

by birtanpublished on August 16, 2020

If you haven't heard of the mighty Mentos and Diet Coke experiment then where have you been the world-famous experiment consists of combining super fresh and minty Mentos with that saccharine sweet diet and yes it has to be diet coke the reaction

Between the substances make for a huge foamy explosion that's sure to make a mess of your kitchen and ruin your day but if you drank diet coke and ate mentos would it ruin your stomach first let's examine what's actually happening

When the candy hits the soda it starts a reaction that consists of a process called nucleation diet coke is manufactured with a lot of carbon dioxide to give the soda fizziness and that carbon dioxide dissolves into the

Water content in the bottle the moment you open the bottle the carbon dioxide changes back into a gaseous form basically the co2 changes from a liquid state to a gas state very fast and when there are more physical places for the

Co2 to land then the process happens with a lot and work volume think of when you pour soda into a glass by itself versus the glass with ice when it has ice there's a lot more bubbles that's because there's more surface area on

Which nucleation can occur Mentos tablets have a very rough surface despite looking smooth to the naked eye when you get up close you can see that the Mentos has a lot of uneven surfaces this bumpy surface acts as a perfect

Site for nucleation so when all that co2 from the diet coke hits the millions of nucleation sites on the Mentos it creates the incredible Coca Cola geyser okay but can that happen inside your body it's been rumored that a boy died

By swallowing Mentos and chugging a can of Diet Coke right after but what this really happened will the two meet up down in the pit of your stomach and explode if unharmed Mentos made it 100% intact to your stomach and you chug the

Leader of Diet Coke your stomach and intestines would fill up with gas like a balloon filling up with air the walls of your guts would stretch and distend until the tissue hits its breaking point at which point that would be damaged in

Rupture inside your body something like this actually did happen to a woman who was celebrating the Chinese New Year but Mentos and Coke weren't the culprits she had over eaten and drank too much alcohol

When surgeons attempted to help her large amounts of gas from the alcohol were released and came into contact with electrical equipment and to fire her stomach basically exploded and the doctors had to remove her

Stomach entirely however the diet coke and mentos tail is an urban legend you cannot die from eating mentos and drinking diet coke because the rough surface of the mentos begins to dissolve almost immediately in

Your mouth so no nucleation can occur in your stomach so while coke and mentos won't make your belly explode over eating and drinking might but even if there aren't any definitive reports of it happening

We still don't recommend you try it leave the coke and mentos explosions in the glass instead of your stomach and remember to do the experiment outside unless you want a big mess to deal with
