Mentos truck crashes into Diet Coke bottling plant

ATLANTA – A Mentos delivery truck veered into the bottling plant for Diet Coke earlier today, setting off a gigantic foam eruption. The interaction between the candy surface and the carbonated soda leads to rapid nucleation of carbon dioxide, expanding it outward.

No injuries were reported, but everyone within a six-block radius will need to scrub down pretty good.

    If we could just harness the awesome power of Mentos and Coke we could stop our dependencies on foreign candy.

    That would violate the terms of the Toblerone Accord.

    @Kath:Please be sure to read the Janky TOS. We are totally irresponsible. It’s in Legalish and everything. And if your popped-up laptop isn’t specifically covered in the text, it will be retroactively covered by virtue of the “space-time continuum” clause. As always, your call is important to us.Mgmt.

    Whoa! Was that on purpose? If it was an accident I feel sooooo bad for the driver!

    Not to worry, Anonymous. No one was hurt, unlike the Pop Rocks/Coke incident of 1979 that claimed Mikey.
