I never like peanuts in my Coke either but it satisfies that sweet/salty fix I hear.
A LOT of people around here did the peanuts in Sundrop thing - same thing, just different soda.
I did do:
Coke and chocolate syrup
Coke and lemon
Coke and lime
Coke and potato chips - kinda like milk and oreos only you dunk your chips in the Coke - same sweet/salty fixation as Coke and peanuts - only better IMHO
