Nice! too small of a glass,however…imo. A squeeze of a lime will eliminate all da diet coke foam,add a nice little flavor, and make room for more goodness. a splash of vanilla is heavenly. other than that……..bottoms up!
A “diet” coke/ice cream float, eh? One defeats the other, haha!
I guess that’s sort of like how I order a whopper combo with cheese, large fries and dessert from Burger King… then order a diet coke with it, LOL!
Looks delish though!
The Diet Coke has more carbonation in it per ounce than regular Coke and makes more fun bubble foam. A very fun treat and a great picture.
Is that why diet coke is called for in the “Mentos” science experience, and not regular coke?
Regarding the Mentos effect, I do not know whether it is the chemical composition or the carbonation, but you can do this simple experiment. Fill a tub or bucket with water, drop in an unopened can of regular Coke and an unopened can of Diet Coke. The regular Coke will sink, and the Diet Coke will float. The reason is that the chemical sweetener in the Diet Coke takes up less space than the sugar-like substance in the regular Coke. Less other stuff, more carbonated water, more bubbles in the Diet Coke per 12 fl oz.
