I don't know if Northerners have ever done or heard of this, but I'm sure that many members from the South have. Has anyone put a small bag of salted peanuts in a 6 1/2 ounce bottle of Coke. Or had a "Nehi Orange" soda with a "Moon Pie"?
That really works good on a Mt.Dew. The salt knocks out some of the twang. I no longer drink carbonated beverages, but this is the closest to making me want one. I used to drink Coke, and I got the idea that I was drinking sweet acid water, so I gave it up. When I tried one a few months later, I couldn't get over how SWEET those things are. Peanuts would solve that problem. I doubt I drink 6 a year now.
We have old film of a fellow who thought drinks would dissolve your bones due to the acid. So on the film, he would appear to drink them, but in reality, he'd swish it around in his mouth, and then spit each swig out. Whoever was doing the filming seemed to want to capture his drinking problem.
