File this under possibly very odd southern traditions that might be totally insane but I still love. The tradition in question is putting peanuts in your coca-cola. Anybody? Let’s cover the ground rules: it has to be a regular coca-cola (preferably from a glass bottle) and the peanuts need to be salted. Some folks just drop them in the bottle but I like to drink this concoction out of a glass (or mason jar in my case since I’m low on glasses) better because it makes it easier to get the peanuts into your pie hole. I know it sounds crazy but it’s a thing. People do this! The salt from the peanuts mixes with the coke and the result is sweet and salty goodness. Why there’s even a restaurant in Atlanta that has coke and peanuts flavored soft serve on the dessert menu and it is magical (thanks for reminding me, Kelly!) Okay so have you heard of this? Have you tried it?
