The Coca-Cola and Mentos experiment has been raging for years, but this video shows a man who isn’t afraid of the reaction – as he dives into a pool of the stuff.
Taras Maksimuk is a YouTuber called TechRax known for smashing iPhones in unbelievable ways – including inside a ball of fireworks and wrapped in bacon.
But this time, he decided to have an outdoor dip in a 6,800 litre Coca-Cola swimming pool – and he added a stack of Mento mints and 200 pounds of ice to the mix.
When cola is mixed with Mento mints, a process called nucleation occurs, where the carbon dioxide in the fizzy drink reacts with the sugary surface of the mint and each one forms a mini explosion.
Ukrainian Taras, based in California, wrote: “This was epic!
“After weeks of buying thousands of Coke bottles and many more hours of opening and pouring, the magnificent Coca-Cola pool was created.”
Coca Cola mixed with Mentos mints in a 50 gallon bathtub – can you guess what happens next?
Asked how the bath felt, he replied: “I feel like I’m in a pool of Coke, man.”
Bringing the TechRax tech ruin that he loves along, he then flew a DJI Phantom 4 quadcopter into the pool where it was wrecked by Coke.
