    PRINCETON, Minn. (KARE) - Victory is sweet, especially if that victory involves candy, soda, and lands you a world record.

    That is exactly what students from a Minnesota high school were shooting for as they used a combustible concoction of Mentos candy and Diet Coke. Combining the two causes a foamy eruption, often referred to as a "Coke geyser."

    Hundreds of students attempted to break the world record Friday. Their goal was to set off a series of 3,000 geysers, which would eclipse the current record.

    Students say the idea grew from a plan for a graduation prank into a way to put their small town on the map.
