And all you loyal readers know what a vacation to a foreign country means… new Mentos! There wasn’t too much to find in Puerto Vallarta. I looked around in the… Read more »

How did I not see this earlier (thanks Rob & The 4th Way)?? Those brilliant marketing folks over at Mentos have a new website, and a new intern (named trevor) who will do whatever you tell him to do… within reason. He can’t do anything lewd or illegal. Visit the site: mentosintern.com, and you can… Read more »

Today is a very Mentos’y day (I guess every day is a Mentos’y day for me though). First spotted on The Scattered Genius blog, then The Consumerist: Apparently Mentos may be putting geyser tubes into their multi-roll packages later this summer. Soon you’ll be able to spray Diet Coke everywhere at home. I guess you… Read more »
On May 24th, at Fountain Square in Cincinnati, Ohio, a new Guinness World Record was set for 504 simultaneous Mentos Diet Coke fountains going off at the same time. Mentos and Eepybird (the crazy guys who make the elaborate Mentos fountains) put the event together. They invited participants to show up, who were provided with… Read more »
Another shipment of Japanese rolls from Mentos Ambassador Roth arrived last week. There were a couple surprises in the package. There was a Juicy Cassis, Japanese Mint and a Citrus Mango. Of all those are flavors, I’ve got at least one roll of in the archive. The best part of the shipment is the curiously… Read more »
Last week I discovered a big old box with Asian stamps on it in my mailbox. I pulled it out and thought to myself, “what on earth am I getting from Hong Kong?!?” Then I looked at the return address, “of course… (newly badged) Mentos Ambassador Stoll!” Ambassador Stoll had been working his way around… Read more »
The Candyblog has a nice review of Mentos Berry Mix, that apparently came from Guam, but were made in China. They come wrapped in a clear plastic outer wrapper and the box is about the size of a deck of cards. The flip top makes it easy to share, and with a flavor mix like… Read more »

We were in downtown Austin last night and sitting at the balcony of The Blind Pig. I stepped away for a moment and when I returned, I was informed that a Mentos car was parked on the street below and there was a team of Mentos girls handing out rolls up and down the street…. Read more »
The International Toy Fair in New York just ended yesterday. I’m sure there were a lot of cool toys at the fair, but one caught my eye for obvious reasons. A company called Steve Spangler Science released a new toy called the Mentos Geyser Tube, which is basically a little plastic device to easily create… Read more »
From the same guys who put together the first “Awesome Mentos Fountain,” comes another one. This one uses a domino effect involving 251 bottles of Diet Coke and 1506 Mentos all tied together to create a really cool fountain chain of fizzy Mentos goodness.
I recently received a new shipment of Japanese Mentos from newly badged (no I don’t have any badges) Mentos Ambassador Roth. Within this shipment were a few new flavors I’ve never seen before and (as of this writing) never tasted before. Grape, Strawberry and Mint are available in the U.S., though these wrappers are brighter…. Read more »
We all know what happens when you put mentos into a 2-liter of Diet Coke. Check out what happens with other candy/beverage combinations.
After Dan’s question in my last Mentos post, I thought I’d take the opportunity to explain the low-down behind my Mentos Ambassadors. The short and sweet answer to, “What is a Mentos ambassador?” is they are people who bring me Mentos from other countries. The thing about Mentos is that they’re an international company and… Read more »
