1. Metos and Coke--Some of you may have seen amazing displays of this over the internet, but if you've never tried it yourself, it is probably my favorite of this list. Take a two-liter bottle of soda (I've been told that Diet Coke works the best), open it, and all at one time drop in four Mentos (little mint candies). I would step back quickly if I were you because the soda will spray up almost like a fountain. Definitely cool.
For those people who don't mind getting a little sticky, perhaps, I have also tried putting the Mentos in my mouth and pouring the soda in on top. A little different twist.
2. Bananas and Sprite--In similar fashion, if you take a big bite of a banana, chew it up, and keep it in your mouth, then you take a large swig of white soda as well--same kind of result. You will spit it out all over. Do be aware of your surroundings before you try these last two. Some people don't like chewed up banana all over their driveways.
3. Microwaving Grapes--I think one of my little brothers showed me this. We all know that if you microwave something metal it will spark. But, did you know that if you cut a grape in half leaving just a bit of the skin attached so that both sides are still barely connected and put it in the microwave, it will spark too? Yeah! Who'd have thought?!
4. Burning Fritos--I think it's because of the oil in the chips, but if you light Fritos on fire, they will burn.
See, look at all of these fun things you learned today by coming to our blog.
