I grew up putting the roasted peanuts in my Coca-cola's. The added salt plus the flavor of the peanuts just added so much to the soda!!! The peanuts were yummy in the end, too.
I just did it again a few months ago... putting peanuts in my coke... My co-workers thought it was strange. It's mostly a "kid thing."
Give thanks to Mother Earth for Her greatest gift...
For without it, we would be lost.
