CARBON DIOXIDE GEYSER<br />
Mentos reacts physically with carbonated soda<br />
(Variations Available)<br />
The gelatin and gum arabic from the dissolving candy disrupts the water mesh in the seltzer water, so it takes less work for bubbles to expand. The rough surface of the candy allows for new bubbles to form more quickly.
