An apparently recent hoax (or so it appears to be a hoax) has made its way through the internet; the mountain dew glowstick. The recipe for this calls for various ratios of peroxide, baking soda and Mnt. Dew. Some alternative recipes list detergent also.
Many a video posted by annoyed web trollers who try the experiment indicate that this is bunk and I haven’t found any scientific validation for it either. Maybe this is just more prankery or, perhaps something started by pepsi co. to boost sales in a market that increasingly flooded with healthier alternatives to soda (or “pop”, depending on where you are from).
Would this marketing strategy even work? Or is this just another example of people having a laugh at the expense of others?
