You add the peanuts to the Coke and let the flavours mingle to create a flavour described as a "sweet-savoury push and pull" between the flavours.

According to simplyrecipes.com, the salt from the peanuts infuses the soda, toning down its sweetness and drawing out its other flavours.

Meanwhile, the peanuts soak up some of the Coke's flavours while keeping most of its crunch.

So, if you're looking for a sweet and savoury treat to beat the heat, grab these two ingredients for a tasty experiment.

A small tip is to have the coke ice cold and it should be enjoyed quickly to keep the peanuts from getting too soft.

The recipe has been around for decades but makes a comeback via social media every few years, introducing it to a new generation.
