A friend of mine claims that if you drop ‘Mintoes’ (mint flavour) into ‘Diet Coca Cola’, it will instantly produce a fountain of cola around 6 feet high. :eek:
I happen to have bought both products and the respective main ingredients are listed as:
suiker, glucoseestroop, gehard plantaardig vet, zetmeel;
sprankelend water, zoetstoffen, aspartme;
(Um, I’m in Flemish-speaking Belgium for a chess tournament. I guess some of the above are sugar / glucose syrup and sparkling water / aspartme sweetener)
Is there a chemical basis for this?
Otherwise I’m going to try it in my back garden when I return!
