Dropping Mentos into Diet Coke is one of the most popular at-home experiments to perform. When the candy’s porous surface, gelatin, and gum arabic combine with the potassium benzoate, aspartame, and carbonation in the soda, the CO2 gets released incredibly rapidly, producing a tremendous amount of foam. When forced to go through the bottle’s narrow opening, this creates a huge geyser. 

The folks at Epic Meal Empire, a new show coming to FYI Television this July, decided to up the ante a little bit. Why drop a few Mentos into a single bottle when you can wear a suit covered in hundreds of Mentos and get dropped into a dunk tank full of Diet Coke?
