Is it true that combining Menthos + Coca-Cola can kill you ??

I heard a kid died in brazil after he ate menthos while drinking coca cola. What about other kind of mentholated products or candies?

    i think that it cause the coca cola to explode. you know like what happens when you shake a soda and it explodes? I think that's all it does because we did something like that in science.

    No this is an urban myth. Your stomach has a very acidic content due to the hydrochloric acid and this will conteract the effects of the combined menthos and cola. Just as someone else said it is no more true than combining pop rocks and pepsi will kill you.

    It won't kill you, but it would probably hurt your stomach. Go outside and drop a mentos into a 2 liter bottle of coke and watch what happens. Make sure you are in an open area because the soda will explode.

    Not really, a lot of the fizz goes away as you drink. Then when bubbles are released in your stomach, your stomach can expand a bit, and it also has ways of releasing excess pressure. Do not, repeat, do not be stupid and test the limits of your stomach. Don't even think about it. Watch the great experiment imitating the Bellagio fountains here:

    Watch myth-busters on the discovery channel and you will see what happens when you mix soda and menthos.

    It's true. I once let one of my kids fill up on Menthos and Coke and she ate and ate and ate and ate and eventually exploded. It was quite a mess. My wife divorced me over it. Unreasonable, huh?

    I am not so sure, but if you combine Coca Cola + arsenic it is fatal.
