Turn a bottle of soda & a roll of Mentos into an erupting geyser that will launch up to 30 feet! Improved trigger mechanism to prevent accidental eruptions.
Just when you think that everyone in the world has seen the Mentos Geyser experiment, you run into a few thousand people attending the New York Toy Fair who are surprised by the reaction. Last Monday I spent the entire day launching off soda geysers in the Be Amazing Toys booth at the Toy Fair. […]
Ted Allen, host of Food Detectives on the Food Network, featured a segment using our Mentos Geyser Tube toy as a trigger device for their exploding soda segment. The producers did a nice job of explaining the science behind the eruption and even shared a cool variation of slowly lowering several Mentos into the bottle […]
It’s probably the most asked question we get… “How exactly does that experiment with the Mentos and Diet Coke really work?” From the outset (nearly eight years ago), we hypothesized that the exploding soda was a physical reaction, and the key factor in the release of carbon dioxide was the microscopic pits on the surface […]
I mentioned in a previous blog post that Steve Jacobs (consultant for the Discovery Channel) called in May to let me know that Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from MythBusters were going to do a segment on the Mentos things. Steve wanted to be able to share what worked well for us and our latest […]
Actor Rainn Wilson of SoulPancake – a website where life’s big questions are debated, mixed and turned to batter – recently made a visit to the Spangler Labs. He sat down with Steve Spangler and asked about the science of love. When Steve didn’t quite have the answer, he vamped a little and tried to […]

It’s not unusual for our office to get a call or two a week from the media about the Mentos Geyser experiment. Most of the inquires focus on how the reaction works or questions about MENTOS myths. When Tom Whipple from the London Times called, his interest in the MENTOS Geyser focused on the vehicle […]
At the beginning of May, we asked you to nominate your favorite science teacher for our Teacher Appreciation Award. The entries came pouring in, and we are excited to spotlight our winners. Huge thanks to everyone who participated! We found some truly remarkable teachers out there and we are excited to feature them here… and […]
