    Seen on TV: Dangers of mixing mentos with coke


    Wind back a few years, and mixing mentos with coke was nothing short of an internet sensation.

    Typically the sort of experiment you would be likely to see on a children’’s science show on TV, mixing mentos with coke is a quick and simple way to create an impressive spectacle and wow your audience.

    While some accidents, such as slips, trips and falls are common when we participate in fun activities, mixing mentos with coke can present other dangers to those involved.

    The dangers of mixing mentos with coke

    Contrary to popular belief, mixing mentos with coke does not lead to death, nor does drinking coke after eating mentos cause your stomach to explode. These internet horror stories are nothing but urban myths.

    That being said, should you decide to experiment, if you are involved in mixing mentos with coke, you could experience other experiment-related injuries.

    Spills on the floor following the eruption caused by mixing mentos with coke could lead to slips and falls. Accidents such as these can lead to myriad injuries from bumps and bruises to lacerations, even fractures and head injuries.

    Mixing mentos with coke in an uncontrolled area, without personal protective equipment, isn’’t advisable. You may also suffer injuries to the face or the eyes, due to the reaction exploding directly into this area of your body.

    While you are unlikely to suffer serious injury directly due to mixing mentos with coke, it is extremely likely that you will suffer an injury as a consequence of the mess left behind following the experiment.
