The saying goes something like: “Don’t judge a meal based on how disgusting it sounds”, but how many of us have actually turned our noses up at something that doesn’t go quite as uncomplicated like bread and butter? The truth is, we all have that ONE insane food combination that sounds utterly ridiculous to others but is sacred to you and you vow to love it till the day you die.
However, we highly recommend you spread the love. We bet that whatever it is that you love to eat, there will always be others who will love it too! To celebrate the weirdness (we’re all in this together) we’ve rounded up 10 of the most bizarre food combos that are actually worth trying. Don’t forget, this is a judgment free zone.
1. Dipping French fries in Chocolate Sundae from McDonalds
This is a classic tradition that has been around for generations. The saltiness of the fries paired with the sweetness of the soft scoop ice cream leaves your taste buds tantalized.
2. Peanut Butter with Maple Syrup
Two unlikely combinations but worth a try. It seems that the taste of dry, roasted peanuts and sweet maple is a must-try combination that everyone needs in their lives.
3. Omelette and Strawberry Jam
This sweet breakfast treat has been popular for more than a century. A sweet filling rather than the usual savory ones is a unique taste and is worth all modern omeletteers to broaden their scope of fillings.
4. Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich with Potato Chips in the middle
The chips add a crunchy component to the sandwich which makes your ordinary P&J sandwich not so ordinary. Sweet and salty is a bizarre combination but the chips elevate this sandwich to a whole new level.
5. Biryani with Ketchup on the side
This is not to be missed for all of us who absolutely love ketchup on the side with everything. The spicy flavoring of Biryani coupled with the sourness of Tomato ketchup is a must have.
6. Nutella on Pizza
Yes, you may hesitate at first but consider placing dollops of Nutella on your typical cheese and tomato pizza to give it that extra oomph. Who dares, wins.
9. Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwich
It is an unusual pairing but it turns out that people really take to the acidic, vinegary taste of the pickles coupled with the rich and creamy taste of peanuts. The crunch of the pickles add an extra element to the sandwich and you will find yourself wanting to eat it again and again.
