My aunt loved boiled peanuts , I tried them I didn't care for them. She was born in South Carolina.
As for peanuts in soda, everyone I know puts them in Dr Pepper ( I did too) I know sounds strange, but it's good.

That is common in the deep South, from what I hear. I was raised in southern Virginia and I don't recall anyone doing it there, but we did hear about it.

Boiled peanuts on the side. Roasted peanuts in the coke. Makes the coke foam over but what a treat.

Hell yes, peanuts in the soda bottle (no soda cans then). We did this many times when we were kids in the late 50's and during the 60's. We used to get raw peanuts from an uncle in a large gunny sack. They were usually parched before eating, because eating to many of the raw ones gave you a belly ache.

My Grandfather got me hooked on salted peanuts in Pepsi and Coke when I was five or six years old in the 1950'2. That was in Eastern Colorado and my family had settled in the area around the time of the Colorado Gold Rush in 1859 so there was no Southern connection that I am aware of.
