Many of us were warned of the dangers of mixing Pop Rocks and cola when we were children. Pop culture helped perpetuate the urban legend – including an episode of The Simpsons when Homer uses the sugary foods to create and improvised explosion device while smuggling candy from a candy convention. An episode of the TV show MythBusters has since debunked the myth.
But one candy and cola do create a geyser: Mentos and Coke Zero. We found a couple of videos of two guys in lab coats who wanted to use the Mentos and Coke geyser for good. Check out the videos to see the Mentos and Coke Zero powered rocket car in action! Although it won’t set any speed or distance records, in both attempts, the fizz-powered cars traveled more than 200 feet.
