What is the result of Mentos and Diet Coke experiment?

In the Diet Coke bottle the Mentos candy provides a rough surface that allows the bonds between the carbon dioxide gas and water to break more easily, helping to create carbon dioxide bubbles. Because Mentos candies are rather dense, they sink rapidly through the liquid, causing a fast, large eruption.

How do you make a Coke bottle rocket?
