Here’s a southern cuisine I tried and became a routine snack.

1 12-oz Coca Cola. Other cola drinks may be substituted, but a real Coke is best. The Coke must be in a BOTTLE, not in a can.

1 small package of regular salted peanuts. DO NOT use dry roast, spicy or unsalted or anything else.

Open the bottle of Coke. Drink one swallow. This makes room for the peanuts. Pour the peanuts into the mouth of the Coke bottle. Use your thumb and forefinger to form a funnel.

Drink the Coke and peanut combination. You get a mouthful of peanuts with each swallow, at first. Gradually the peanuts thin out. As the peanuts swim around in the Coke, they change flavor. The challenge is to "drink" all the peanuts and not leave any stranded in the bottle.

This is actually more satisfying than an RC and a Moon Pie. Combining peanuts and Coke with a Slim Jim or beef jerky is overkill.

Well, I am not too sure about the snack, I just might try it sometime though because I do like Coke and peanuts.

The pictures in your previous post are fantastic , isn't our country just magnificent? Happy Independence Day nephew, and thank-you for your service via the U.S.M.C.! We love you, Uncle Jim & Aunt Kathy

Seriously??? You know this was probably tried with beer first - in a bar somewhere when someone accidentally dropped their peanuts in their drink. I think I'll try this out just to make sure you got the technic down right - are you positive about the making a funnel with my thumb and forefinger part or could I use my pinky and thumb???
