Don’t forget to unmute the video!
This was apparently filmed for EpicMealEmpire, a show by Epic Meal Time that will soon air on FYI.
I’m just sad it’s so short! :(

This is fake. It doesn’t work like that if 1. It isn’t MINT mentos 2. The coke is in anything but a bottle. 3. That guy is clearly just thrashing around in it.
No, it’s real. Just lame.
It just isn’t as impressive as the original, because the neck of the Coke bottle in the original experiment acts as a choke-point, leading to the Whoosh of Awesome. It’s the micro-pitting on the surface of the Mentos, not the flavour that causes the rapid de-carbonation of the liquid.
But really, if I had the chance to thrash about in a tub full of Coke, I probably would. You know, for science.
But the fruity Mentos, though superior in flavor, don’t have nearly as much (if any) micro-pitting on them. While the mint-flavored Mentos do. Hence fruit Mentos wouldn’t provide the same explosive result anyway, even in an actual bottle.
