I saw a experiment that involved mixing mentos candy with coca-cola to show that
mixing the chemicals in mentos and coca-cola produce a strong reaction. I want
to know what chemicals in mentos candy and soda would produce a high reaction.
Please submit your answer in a chemical equation form so I can easily see what
chemicals are responsible for such a reaction.
