OK. I need to make sure I'm not being Trolled by the Internet.

Recently I've been having massive cravings for anything with peanuts in it and Dr Pepper, so much so I decided to Google it to see if my body was trying to tell me something and then I cam across a Texan tradition of putting salted peanuts in Dr Pepper or in Coke. Do people actually do this!!! Is this real?, And how can it taste nice. I wanna try it because I'm for trying anything at least once but I cannot imagine this tasting nice at all.

I guess it works. Think about it, when you're at the bar they have salted peanuts and you have your drink, and you will have some nuts and then take a drink. Why not remove the middle step and just have an all-in-one type drink? Although I'm not sure if a peanut gets soggy or if it would retain its crunchiness, so maybe it wouldn't be so great...

EDIT: thechronic...wow, my mind has just been blown. And they plan on turning it in to a feature film?

My brother used to dip fries into Coca Cola and then eat the fries. I don't think he still does this but he thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.

The salt on the peanuts will make the pop flatter than crap and the pop will taste the same!!

Otherwise, make sure they're unsalted nuts, which taste like crap also.

As Intrinsica kind of hit on, some people put salt in their beer to reduce the fizz/carbonation.

Actually I wasn't going for that at all, I had no idea salt would reduce the fizz! :laugh:

I put salt in boiling water for pasta to help prevent the noodles from sticking together as much as without water

Some of these answers are great. But the salt making the pop flat. Hmm. I think I might not hurry to try this one.

It's not something I do regularly, but I do it. I don't like Dr. Pepper, though. I put them in my Pepsi.

I like Dr. Pepper, but I probably wouldn't put peanuts in it.

I don't know why people do it, but my step mom use to put peanuts in her Pepsi all the time, I assumed it was an Arkansas thing.

Nothing can taste bad if you add Dr Pepper.
