This is a hoax. There is nothing inherently dangerous about drinking soda and eating any kind of candy together. What happens when you put any quantity of small particles into a bottle of soda (a spoonful of sugar or salt will have the same effect) is that the carbon dioxide gas dissolved in the liquid whilst it is under pressure is suddenly and quickly released. The force is enough to burst a bottle or cause a fountain but could NOT kill someone because our stomachs are flexible and NOT closed, as a bottle is.
