Food is more personal than we think. While some of us would love to try the tried and tested food combinations, some food combinations are as good as they are weird.
For example, you are trying a weird combination of a salty pretzel with a sweet something combination. An odd combination, but they may turn out delicious if you give it a try. Here are some other combinations that may send your taste buds into a tizzy!
Ice Cream and Fries
Ice cream and fries make for a strange combination, but have you tried it before? You may have scoffed at friends who dipped their fries into a Wendy’s Frosty or a McDonald’s McFlurry ice cream.
It turns out it isn’t as rare as you thought it to be. Fried foods taste good with anything, and so does ice cream, so that way, this should be an irresistible combination. We all love a good combination of salty, sweet, hot, and cold. Well, this weird combination has its takers, so Coolhaus sells milkshakes and fried ice cream for the adventurous. Mixing fries, malt balls, and vanilla ice cream can never go wrong, right?
Olive Oil and Ice Cream
There’s something about ice cream that makes people try out weird combinations with it. It is a good salty and sweet combination where you put sea salt flakes, a drizzle of olive oil into vanilla ice cream, and it turns out as weird as it is delicious.
Another way to try out the weird olive oil gelato, of course, is if a shop near you sells this combination. And if doesn’t don’t lose heart, you can whip up olive oil with ice cream with elan.
Coca-Cola and Chicken
Have you ever tried frying your chicken in cola? It looks like it is not as weird as you think. Many have gone ahead and tried that and not stopped having it after that. Another salty-sweet combo that resembles this is teriyaki or sweet barbecue sauce flavors.
Cheddar Cheese and Apple Pie
Come to think of it. Apple pie can taste good with almost anything, right? So, cheddar cheese can turn out to be a perfect pairing. All you need to do is add fresh apples with cheese slices. This idea of combining cheese and apple pie seems to have originated in England, and people have tried the idea for years together.
The cheddar-topped apple pie has been most popular in the United States, such as the Midwest and New England. You can try it out, too, and give it your spin. Just throw a yellow slice with an apple pie slice, and you can even bake the two together, and voila, you’ll concoct your weird yet delicious recipe.
Peanut Butter and a Burger
Come to think of it. Peanut butter is that one versatile product that pairs well with anything, even a bitter vegetable! The peanut butter will help you recover from a bad taste onslaught! Okay, we are not telling you to try out something as weird as that, just peanut butter and burger.
It’s not your traditional sweet and salt combination. Rather it is more of a salt and more salt taste. Just add melted peanut butter when you are forming beef patties that will invariably make the meat juicier. You can even try the Thai peanut sauce for your next burger, and you will find a melange of tastes bursting in your mouth.
Chocolate and Chips
If you are one for salted caramel and like to dip your M&Ms right into your popcorn while you watch your movie with bated breath, then you should try this.
The chocolate-covered potato chips are another thing you can certainly try. The salty-sweet combination is right down delicious. Even Lay’s brought out its chocolate-covered potato chips in 2013, but the pairing has been around since long before that.
Banana and Bacon
We aren’t quite sure about the origin of this weird combination, but it looks like Elvis Presley loved this combination. So, you pair a banana with creamy peanut butter and salty bacon, and this delicious combination can cater to your varied taste buds like a breeze.
