I am soooo going to show this trick to my kids.
Candy + pop + science = perfect combination. Even better than sparking wintergreen lifesavers. (And this one doesn’t involve blowing up stuff that could actually, y’know, really harm you).
And finally, since I’ve not participated in poetry pimpin’ at Scienceblogs yet, I offer an ode to Mentos on this, the closing day of National Poetry Month:
A Mentos Poem
by Rachel from Michigan
What can I say about Mentos,
They make my life complete.
They taste nothing like pimentos,
And is why I will eat…….them.
