Watch what happens

Children participating in the summer reading program, “Fizz, Boom, Read” at the Forrest City Public Library enjoy an experiment of explosive proportions on Tuesday as library employee Lori Hutcherson drops Mentos candies into two-liter bottles of soda. The children watched as fountains of soda launched into the air. Hutcherson varied the experiment’s reaction by using different brands of soda and changing the number of Mentos placed in the bottles.
