Lebanese Jallab vs. a Coke with Tom's Peanuts

AC | Feb 10, 2006 12:36 AM

So I was recently musing on the similarities between jallab, a Lebanese concoction of date syrup, rose water, and pine nuts, and the the Southern beveraging delicacy that is a bottle of Coca Cola mixed with the contents of a small bag of salted peanuts. Has anyone ever considered the kinship between these two drinks from two opposite ends of the earth?

Are there other cultures that offer something similar?

Also, what variations on the Coca-Cola with salted peanuts have other folks enjoyed?
