This hypothesis gained further support when rock salt was used as a "jump start" to the reaction. First demonstrated by chemistry teacher Lee Marek on the Late Show with David Letterman on September 14, and later popularized in a June  viral Internet video by Eepybirda Mentos mint expedites a rapid release of carbon dioxide when dropped into a carbonated liquidsuch as a soft drink. Under these conditions, carbon dioxide begins to precipitate from solution, forming gas bubbles. He always knows the perfect spot for the punchline or how to make you feel that heavy emotion. The structure of the Mentos is the most significant cause of the eruption due to nucleation. Retrieved 20 September Mentos introduced the Freshmaker campaign that proved to be right on target:
In the US, Mentos lovers got to try cinnamon and menthol, while European addicts were presented with fruit flavored mints.

She also recently did voiceover work in the popular video game "Mass Effect: Colloids and Interface Science Communications. The addition of other nucleation sites provides an alternative pathway for the reaction to occur with lower activation energy, much like a catalyst. The first Mentos roll found its way to consumers across the globe. Overly abusive language also adds nothing to any discussion and will not be published. Chocolate Mentos were produced inbut the flavor was discontinued.
