Alright, look. We're warning you now. Don't mix Mentos and Coke at home unless you want to spend way too long cleaning up afterwards. Anyway, making Mentos should be just like making Skittles, right? So this shouldn't take too long... hmm.
Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes gourmet Mentos.

    I feel like all these candy have the shells made like jawbreakers? they're tumbled in industrial machines with the sugar being poured in while they spin so they're coated evenly. Also the carnauba wax is added to make the candy shell shiny

    Claire: a corn starch and egg white mold
    Me: oh honey, you’re just making a different version of oobleck (a mixture that is solid when pressure is being put on it but a liquid when no pressure is put on it, hence why the mentos just sank into the mold. ) :D

    I think the whole idea about the OG Mentos (and Skittles) filling is it being a non newtonian fluid. Therefore, when a high force is applied to them they behave like a rock (bounce off a surface or break into pieces), but under a mild force they act chewy, this is literally what non newtonian fuilds do. And you know what a NNF is? Wheat starch! Literally what you pointed out in your video when you attempted to make a mold out of it.

    I feel like the producers are pushing gourmet makes more into replicating than making it gourmet and improving it. Like the texture I’d say is improving it. Please brig GM back to making something better because its being homemade by an educated chef using better ingredients

    Krispy Kreme and this video..are disappointments. It isn't fun seeing Claire get upset or frustrated, it doesn't seem healthy for her and it seems like she's not happy doing it at all. I've noticed a shift months ago once these videos got really popular. I think it needs to be retooled. She looks defeated, and I hate that aww.

    Claire should choose what she does. Then it will still be challenging but she will be excited instead of defeated.
