    So, I was surprised as Jimbo that people hadn't heard about putting peanuts in coke. However, I haven't done it since I was a kid in the 60's and 70's.

    Crap. I can't see how to edit the poll. It posted before I could add "No, never heard of it"

    I'm not gonna lie. I've never heard of people doing this. The idea does sound intriguing however, and I will definitely need to try it

    The RC Cola goes with the Moon Pie. The salted peanuts go in the coke.

    I think I am from a similar place. The kind of place where you ask for a coke and the next question is what kind.


    The RC cola does go with a moonpie. The peanuts are likely personal preference. I always thought RC was a bit too sweet.

    I still remember the cofusion I had as a child vacationing in the Midwest to the question, "Is Pepsi OK?" I think I answered,"Well, what OTHER cokes do you have?'

    I know the feeling. I have relatives up north and was confused as a child when asked if you want a pop to go with lunch.

    Pretty sure Barbara Mandrell had a line in one of her songs about putting peanuts in her Coke.

    The Best hangover cure ever.

    Put salted peanuts in your Coke, preferably in one of the old, old 10- or 12-oz. traditional style (curved) bottles if you can find it.

    When hung over, your body needs: 1. fluids for dehydration; 2. sugar for energy; 3. protein for nutrition and energy; 4. electrolyte rebalancing (salts and minerals). All 4 right there. It works.

    My theory is Waffle House is the proactive route while Yoohoo (or peanuts in coke apparently) is the reactive route. For Waffle House to work correctly, you must eat there before going to sleep.
