That sweet and salty is a real thing. My favorites are sea salt & caramel, watermelon & salt and cantaloupe & salt. As a kid I drank lots of Coke with peanuts but have gotten away from it in my later years.

I've had coke with peanuts but have never put the peanuts in the coke...really need to try this.
So how do I go about this? Salted peanut? Ratio of peanuts to coke? Will it be as good with sugar free coke? Must the coke be cold?

Your coke will not be cold after you pour peanuts in it. Freeze peanuts first, that's my advice.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

Only thing I would add to what JMJ posted, take a nice big swig of the Coke before adding peanuts(probably goes without saying, but I hope for your first go round to be enjoyable) , else he absolutely nailed it. ga.prime makes an excellent suggestion with the freeze. I will be trying that one as well.

I just can't mix the sweet of the strawberries with the greens and meat. I will have mine on the side for dessert.

I don't see the reason it all ends up in the same place.

These may look dry and tasteless but...they are not. Known as a Prego roll here. The buns have a pretty dense texture, not those 'air buns' one buys that have nothing to them. No tomato, onion, lettuce etc...just a steak. I used a fillet, fried it in butter and sliced it in half as I prefer a thinner steak on the bun. Then instead of buttering the buns take the same quantity of butter that you would have used and add garlic, chilli, salt and pepper and heat in a pan. Slice the buns in half and fry them in this mix until golden and crispy. Place steak between the bun halves and munch. You may add rocket leaves if you wish, I didn't have any. :D
