Mentos rolls into Middle East conflict

We know what happens when you drop Mentos into Diet Coke, but how about when you drop it into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

A picture of a Mentos package with the words “I love Israel” written on it, from at least a year ago, has somehow popped back up on social media, and is landing the candymaker in the middle of a heated battle between Israel supporters and boycotters.

The picture of the package, which seems to have been taken in a store with American candy bars, dates from at least summer 2014.

Online, it has garnered declarations of love for the Jewish State, and promises to boycott the product, which is available in a number of Arab states.

Mentos has not commented on the hubbub.
