coke + peanuts (*edited)


Thanks, Dad, for your inspirational snacking over the years :) I remembered this today and it was the perfect little treat...sweet and salty...crunchy and bubbly- all at once!

Try it- you will be pleasantly surprised :)

**Edited to add that yes, the peanuts are IN the glass with the coke. It works best if your coke is already cold so you don't have to mess with ice cubes too- but even that is good.

I'll try it! I love peanuts and candy corn! Candy corn by itself is YUCK, but with peanuts it's sweet and salty- the best of both worlds!:) Lori

Did you put the coke in with the peanuts? If so, that's not a good snack for me, but a diet coke with peanuts on the side would be PERFECT!

My first boss (when I was 15) told me about this little tasty snack-drink. I haven't done this since high school, thanks for the trip down memory lane:)

That sounds awesome! Kudos to your dad! I would never have come up with that on my own, but you can bet I am going to try it!

When I was a kid we used to get Coke in a bottle and them put peanut M&M's in it. Yum!

Oh dear. I can go with your crazy colors and your polka dots and stripes, and I'm all about your chalk board paint. But I think you've finally managed to officially scare me.

Really? You drink it????
