However, it appears that mixing peanuts into Coca-Cola is a culinary fad that everyone can support.

It is said that some workers didn’t have water readily available for them to wash their hands, so it was impossible for them to eat their peanut snacks.

As with most things, genius is born of necessity

For convenience, these workers began putting their peanuts in their bottles of coke to get the best of both worlds.

And a flavor star was born.Once word spread, people began combining these foods, and the practice has been handed down through the years.

As usual, a lot of people have been exposed to this now-viral culinary trend through social media, and they are all in agreement that this meal combo is great.

Thankfully, trying it isn’t too difficult.It makes sense, and we understand. the delightful flavor of peanuts combined with something bubbly and sweet? After you give it a try, you may become addicted to it.

Apparently, if you do, it will taste very bad. It might have something to do with artificial sweeteners. Diet coke or coke zero only has alternative sweeteners; so they end up ruining the flavor of this southern treat.

The artificial reacts differently with the peanuts, so instead of giving it a sweet-salty taste, it turns out to be bitter and unappetizing.
