A Soda and Candy eruption (also known as a Diet Coke and Mentos eruption or a Coke geyser) is a reaction of carbonated beverage and Mentos candies. The numerous small pores on the candy's surface catalyze the release of carbon dioxide gas from the soda, resulting in the rapid expulsion of copious amounts of foam.

When the candies come into contact with the liquid, a reaction causes the formation of foam at a rapid rate. A 2006 episode of the television show Mythbusters concluded that the caffeine, potassium benzoate, aspartame, and CO2 gas contained in the Diet Coke, in combination with the gelatin and gum arabic ingredients of the Mentos, all contribute to formation of the foam. [1] The structure of the Mentos is the most significant cause of the eruption due to nucleation. Mythbusters reported that when flavored Mentos with a smooth waxy coating were tested in carbonated drink there was hardly a reaction, whereas standard Mentos added to carbonated drink formed an energetic eruption, affirming the nucleation-site theory. According to Mythbusters, the surface of the mint Mentos is littered with many small holes that increase the surface area available for reaction...

Mentos is a brand of mints, of the "scotch mint" type, sold in many markets across the world by the Perfetti Van Melle corporation. Mentos was first produced in the Netherlands during the 1950s. The mints are small oblate spheroids, with a slightly hard exterior and a soft, chewy interior. They are sold in rolls which typically contain 14 mint discs, although the new "Sour Mix" flavor contains only 11 discs per roll. Certain flavors are sold in boxes in Australia, the United States, Brazil and the United Kingdom, and the rolls are available in four packs. The slogan of Mentos is "The Freshmaker." Most Mentos packages describe the mints as "chewy dragées." The typical Mentos roll is approximately 3/4-inch in diameter, 6/16-inches long and 37.5g.
