Time to go to the grocery store.

This is all over the net, but I think Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda did an excellent Diet Coke & Mentos video. With several tests, they confirm that fruit and sugar-free Mentos work about as well as regular sugary minty Mentos. Also, the various varieties of Diet Coke (C2, Zero, CFDC, didn't try Diet Coke with Splenda) are all good, though Caffeine-free did the best. The soda bottle was strong enough to hold the pressure when the lid was screwed back on quickly. Multiple Mentos aren't required; one will catalyze the de-fizzing of most of a whole 2-liter bottle of coke. That's about all I can remember from watching the video once.
