Check out this and other cool science experiments at http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/experiments/ Steve demonstrates a fun alternative to fireworks on the Fourth of July. All you need is some soda, food coloring and some Mentos for the perfect Patriotic Mentos Geyser!
We can’t think of a better way to kick off your family BBQ than by shooting Red, White and Blue Soda Geysers using a Geyser Tube, Mentos, 3 bottles of Diet Sprite or any other clear soda.
First, color two of the sodas using red and blue food coloring. Strawberry soda and blue Mountain Dew Voltage also work. Then, drop the Mentos in for your own daytime fireworks show. We know you will love these Mentos Geysers with a patriotic twist!
