Coke & Peanuts

My sister, Nettie, introduced me to Coke and peanuts. I guess it was a “thing” way back when. With my first ever bottle of Coke laced with peanuts on the bottom, I awoke to the dynamic duo of sweet and salty.  My love affair with the combo ensued.

When I think of Coke, I think of Nettie.  Bet she would have gotten a kick out of these “Coke Bottle Women” by Cranky Messiah.

The photographer writes that he shot this from his truck.  He spotted the art on the side of a building in Baltimore, Maryland.

  1. Every so often I’ll run across a reference to Coke & peanuts and I must confess, I have not a clue what that tastes like. How did I live to the ripe old age of 60 (and counting) without exploring this fascinating delicacy?

    Adding to my bucket list. HA!

    1. I know, Julieallyn, it’s a weird combo if you ask me. Surely it was started by some popular girl who was being pestered by a boy who plunked salty peanuts into her Coke. LOL.
