2,433 'Mentos geysers' hit new world record

A group of 2,500 people have set a new world record for the largest number of simultaneously erupting "Mentos geysers" in Mexico City. Participants had to drop the candy inside 2-liter bottles of soda at the same time. That mixture created a geyser of fizz.

The crowd achieved a new world record by simultaneously setting off 2,433 geysers.

A representative from Guinness World Records was on hand to verify the event.
