Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Mentos | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
  • 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 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.

    the coke and mentos works even better if you try to quickly put the lid back on, just sort of half twisting it so its not fully screwed on. The pressure builds up and the top explodes
