The chemical reaction that causes fizziness is not that different from when you add vinegar to baking soda.It is an acid-base chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide (CO2). Most often, the reaction involves baking soda (NaHCO3) and citric acid. The reaction can only take place when the ingredients are mixed in solution (dissolved in your mouth), which is why they don't react until you eat them.
Thanks for your great question! Don't get any cavities while conducting any experiments!
