Most of us probably have a fave food combination that would make other people gag, and even Ivanka Trump fell foul of the food police when she served hot dogs with marshmallows at her daughter’s birthday party. This is apparently a popular way to eat hot dogs in the Philippines, but many social media users were grossed out by this combo.
Here are some more weird food combinations that really do taste great – if you dare to try them, that is!
1. Avocados and Chocolate
The mild and creamy taste of avocado makes it a perfect partner for either dark or milk chocolate, and is the basis of vegan chocolate mousse.
2. Sweet Potato Fries and Maple Syrup
The sweet crunch of sweet potato fries teams perfectly with gorgeous maple syrup.
3. Peanut Butter and Bacon
The salty tang of bacon is the perfect partner for creamy, intense peanut butter. Have it on toast or in a sandwich, with a drizzle of honey for a hit of sweetness.
4. Cauliflower and Hot Sauce
Bland cauliflower is the perfect vehicle for strong flavors and sauces. Marinate it in hot sauce, and you have cauliflower popcorn, which is great for movie night or game day snacking.
5. Ice Cream and Olive Oil
Olive oil gelato is a thing in Italy, and it’s extremely popular. The Italians know their food, and this mixture is a great combo of savory and sweet.
6. Chocolate with Pizza
If you have a carb craving like no other, try a pizza base with melted dark chocolate on it, or even Nutella. You’ll be in chocolate and pizza heaven.
7. Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger
It is possible to elevate the classic burger to a new level with the addition of PB & J. Try it and see!
8. Salami and Grapes
Grapes and cheese go together, but for the lactose intolerant among us swap the cheese for salami for a sweet-salty appetizer.
9. Fries and Milkshake
Apparently once you’ve tried this, you’ll never go back to dipping your fries in boring ketchup ever again.
10. Avocado and Honey
Take the avocado toast to the next level with a drizzle of honey, some salt and pepper, and feta cheese.
11. Peanut Butter and Pickles
Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches are a surprisingly popular snack, even among those who are not experiencing weird pregnancy food cravings.
12. Popcorn and Marshmallows
This childhood favorite will take you back to your youth on your next movie night.
13. Oreos and Peanut Butter
This is just delicious, even if you’ve never seen The Parent Trap.
14. Cheetos and Broccoli
This strange combo is actually a menu item at a high-end New York City restaurant.
15. Grape Jelly and Eggs
Scrambled eggs are great on their own, but add some grape jelly and bacon and you’re taking them to the next level.
