"Most People Think It's Gross": 20 Surprising Food Combinations That People Swear Are Good, And I'm Torn On Several

    Don't knock it 'til you try it, I guess...

    As someone who is not picky at all when it comes to food, I'm always open to learning about and possibly even trying surprising food combinations. Sometimes, random foods paired together just work! So, I was intrigued when I came across this Reddit thread where u/wildwoodflower_ asked, "What's a food combo you love that people think you're weird for?" Here are some of the responses.

    1. "I make peanut butter and summer sausage sandwiches."


    Jada Pinkett Smith saying, "that's interesting."

    2. "Not me but a close friend — fried eggs with strawberry jam."

    3. "I used to eat tuna and spicy V8, like, every day my first year in college."

    4. "Brownies with orange juice. Also havarti cheese and corn."

    6. "A hotdog with cream cheese and caramelized onions."


    7. "I like making peanut butter and jelly with tortillas. I spread it on and then roll it up. It reminds me of those Smucker's Uncrustables but better."


    8. "Sausage McMuffin with hash browns and grape jelly. I assumed this was pretty common, but I have never come across another person who does this. Most people think it's gross."

    9. "Cottage cheese with a ton of ground black pepper mixed in, used as a dip for potato chips. Mmm, it’s been too long since I’ve had this."


    10. "I enjoy nacho cheese Doritos with cottage cheese as a dip."

    a doritos bag

    11. "Warm milk with pepper and cinnamon. I love it."


    12. "Potato chips and SpaghettiOs. I’ll eat chips without SpaghettiOs but never SpaghettiOs without chips. Also, must be Lays. I rarely eat this anymore, but when I do, I always snap a pic to send to my sister 'cause it’s our thing."


    Regina George looking confused

    13. "Green olives and cream cheese."


    14. "Okay, this is something I got from my family who is from another country. Hear me out: yogurt and rice. Plain yogurt to be exact, and can be Greek or regular. Slaps."


    15. "Salt and vinegar chips with chocolate raisins mixed into the bag."


    16. "Milk and spicy ramen."

    A man clapping

    17. "Soup with banana. Double fisting. Bite of banana, bite of soup. Colombians understand."


    18. "Salt and vinegar chips topped with sauerkraut."


    19. "Cheesy mashed potatoes and barbecue sauce. It started when my dad made Crock Pot BBQ ribs, and the ribs were placed right next to the cheesy mashed potatoes. I can't describe how good it was. Now, whenever I tell people I put BBQ sauce on mashed potatoes, they look at me like I committed a cardinal sin."

    "It's good. Damn it's good."

    20. "I'm about to gross a lot of people out. Drained tuna fish with mac and cheese — like, mixed together. Started doing that about 17 years ago when I was weightlifting in high school. I love it."
