why does mentos make coke explode

Report as

Mentos candy makes Coke explode because of the physical reaction. The gelatin and gum arabic in Mentos expands the bubbles from the Mentos as it dissolves in the soda. Then because of the texture of the candies, there are tiny little crannies that help make more bubbles even faster. As the Mentos dissolves, it doesn't really explode but causes a very fast foam to form.
