Why bubbles come when you add vinegar and crushed chalk?

The reaction between Chalk and Vinegar creates carbon dioxide. Chalk is calcium carbonate and when vinegar is poured on it. It is prepared from water and acetic acid it should fizz up as the oxygen in the acetic acid combines with the calcium carbonate. The foams are carbon dioxide that is formed when the oxygen from the acetic acid links with the carbon from the calcium carbonate.
