It's a tradition in the South that people put their peanuts in their coke and enjoy this special treat. Have you ever heard of that? I haven't. This is a first for me. I'm not against it though. It does seem to have some appeal to it. I think I would try it and just might to see what all the hype is about. Apparently this tradition started with working blue collar guys who would have dirty hands from working and did not want to use their hands to put food in their mouth if they were to stop for a snack. What they ended up doing was pouring the peanuts into their coke glass and enjoying their food and drink all at once for a delicious treat. This solved the issue of not touching your food with your dirty hands and it also allowed for them to have a free hand if they were doing work.
