New Mentos “Kiss Me” Wrappers

It’s been a good week for new Mentos sightings. I found another new roll (or new packaging at least) in CVS today. The candy is the regular Mentos mint flavor, but the roll has a heart in place of the “O” in “Mentos,” and instead of the normal “Mint” text, it says, “Kiss Me.” I… Read more »

Those crazy guys at Eppybird have done it again. They’re the guys who brought you the amazing Mentos fountains. This time around they’re using Coke Zero (apparently it works as good as Diet Coke) and Mentos to make a rocket car. 108 bottles of Coke Zero and 648 Mentos propel the car (and driver) 212… Read more »

Alabama High School Band Attempts Mentos World Record

I wish our band did things like this in high school. Vestavia Hills High School attempted to break the Coke and Mentos fountain world record yesterday at their high school football stadium.
