It's an e-mail that probably showed up in your inbox... Create an Exploding Drink! The prank is based on the widely known phenomenon of dropping MENTOS® chewy mints into soda to create an erupting geyser. Instead of just dropping the Mentos into soda, the pranksters suggest freezing a Mento in the middle of an ice cube. Serve your friend a refreshing soda drink and garnish with the tainted ice cubes. When the ice cube melts, the Mento is exposed and the soda erupts everywhere. Great idea, right? Readers of the Boing Boing blog suggest that it's a hoax... but no one out of the 600 plus people who posted a comment bothered to try it. We turned Steve Spangler loose to find out if it really works. http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiment/mentos-mix-an-exploding-drink-hoax
