While we now know that Diet Coke and Mentos won't make your stomach explode, they still produce some cool pyrotechnics when mixed together. So naturally, the Epic Meal Time guys covered one of their own in a Mentos suit and placed him in a Diet Coke dunk tank. The results are something truly special. The dude survived, and the stunt will appear on the guys' new show, Epic Meal Empire, which debuts July 26th on A&E's new channel, FYI.
Kristin Hunt is a food/drink staff writer for Thrillist, and hopes this replaces regular dunk tanks at carnivals across the country. Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
