Although peanuts in Coke has been a Southern tradition for a while now, non-Southerners on Twitter—including myself—have only just now begu finding out about it. The reactions range from delight to disgust, with comedian Roy Wood Jr. of The Daily Show even going so far as to taste the abominable combination. Viewer discretion is advised.
I’m southern and this just looks nasty. Whole lotta NOPE!

If you haven’t tried peanuts in Coke, you haven’t lived. Don’t knock it until you’ve tasted it. Salt, sugar, sweet savory. My lunch. All three food groups if you add Fritos.

Loved this as a kid. Almost as good as chocolate gravy with biscuits and sausage for breakfast.

For a more detailed take on the snack, the YouTube channel Emmy Made in Japan released just such a video in 2017:
Well, what do you think? Would you be willing to give peanuts in Coke a try? Or does that bologna cake sound pretty good right about now? Sound off in the comments below if you would put your nuts in a bottle of Coke.
