Mentos and Diet Coke: First a Viral Video, Now a Toy Car
What could be cooler? Only the Mentos Geyser Rocket Car, which goes up to 35 miles per hour and travel about 150 feet. We got a demo of the Rocket Car at Toy Fair 2011, where "The Boy in the Box" strapped a bottle of Diet Coke to the car, popped in some Mentos, and let it rip.
Why Diet Coke instead of regular Coke? There's less sugar, so it's less sticky, which, after getting drenched all day, the Boy in the Box should appreciate.
The Rocket Car will be available this summer. Check out more Toy Fair 2011 coverage.
