Somewhere in my interweb travels, I came across this southern ( as in American South ) treat.
Salted peanuts in Coke.
As a lover of many combinations the masses find strange, I was all over that!
The idea is to take a few swigs of your Coke, pour in your sleeve of salted peanuts and “Bottoms Up!”
Purists say it must be in a glass bottle to get the full experience. The only glass bottles of Coke I could find were diet and I’m morally opposed to diet anything, so my Coke was in a plastic bottle.
My verdict? It was really good! Not weird or strange at all! Whoever invented this was fucking brilliant. The salty peanuts and their rich creaminess really cut through the sugar of the pop and complimented that signature caramel essence. The fizzy burn came through for a satisfying ending. I’m a total fan.
It was really filling. This would make for a meal. In fact, I think part of the lore is that farmer’s would eat this (drink this) “on the go” for lunch during their busy days.
Have you ever tried this combo? What did you think? Do you have another combo that others find strange? Tell me all about it! I’m always looking for interesting new things!
