Illustration for article titled A Car That Makes the Mentos and Diet Coke Trick Ever So Slightly Less Wasteful

Drop a pack of Mentos in a 2 liter bottle of Diet Coke and you get yourself a nice soda geyser. It's fun! It's also pretty wasteful! With this kit you can at least tell yourself you're using Mentos' magical properties to propel a little plastic car up to 200 feet.

The kit come with a car that can accomodate a standard 2 liter soda bottle as well as a handy cylinder for sliding the sustainable fuel pellets (Mentos) cleanly into the sugary fuel tank. Chemistry takes care of the rest: the car zips along at a pretty impressive clip up to a distance of 200 feet. It'll be available to all aspiring cool science teachers later this year.
