The Mentos mints have become a genuine online hype after consumers discovered that mixing the candy with soda (most people use diet coke or pepsi) creates a powerful fountain.
The trick is simple. Drop a batch of mentos mints into the bottle and watch events unfold.
Many manufacturers would fight the trend, fearing the negative publicity that would follow from amputated limbs and eyes lost due to exploding bottles.
But not Mentos. They have launched the Mentos Geyser contest. Send in a video and you could win 320 rolls of Mentos (a year's supply for those Christians not eating candy on Sundays or Muslims/Jews observing Saturdays) and 1,000 iTunes songs.
