We’ve all had our days of randomly mixing up and experimenting with two very different foods and eating them, because why not? These combinations surprisingly work and, who knows, may also be your new found guilty pleasure.
Vanilla Ice cream and Fries
The combination of sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream and crunchy salty potato fries will take you by surprise. Sweet and salty is (mostly) a match made in heaven. Give it a try, we say.
Olive oil and Ice cream
This combination was made famous by a NYC restaurant called ‘Otto’, Olive oil gelato is surprisingly in demand. You can try it by simply adding a drizzle of good quality, high end olive oil on vanilla ice cream. Do not forget to add a sprinkling of flaky sea salt too. The flavor is not overpowering and the olive oil and salt brings out a subtle complexity that is surprisingly addictive.
Fries dipped in honey
Again, a sweet and salty combination that works.
Cream cheese and grape jelly
Mild cream cheese combined with grape jelly’s fruity and sweet flavor compliment each other well on a bagel or sandwich
Gems or M&Ms with popcorn
Sweet, chocolaty, crunchy, salty and buttery. All these flavors work like magic in your mouth. Forget caramel popcorn, this is sure to replace it.
Flamin Hot Cheetos with cream cheese
The cooling creaminess of cream cheese cuts through the spiciness of Hot Cheetos.
Bananas on Pizza
Just like Pineapple on pizza, this combination is surely not for everyone. Bananas give a sweet and fruity flavor to a classic savory pizza.
Strawberries and Balsamic vinegar
This is an age-old and widely used combination that is mostly loved by Italians. The strawberries taste even sweeter and become juicier with the savory balsamic flavor.
Chicken with Pickle brine
Pickle brine helps make the chicken a lot more juicier and makes sure that the chicken does not lose its natural flavor.
Mango and chilli powder
Mexicans are not new to this idea as they love having mango with hot sauce. India too adds chilli to a lot of fruits like guava and bear. So, why leave out mangoes?
Peanut butter, Bacon and Banana
This combination was Elvis Presley’s favorite and is popularly referred to as The Elvis sandwich. Made with toasted bread slices with peanut butter, sliced or mashed banana, and occasionally bacon. Some variations also include honey and jelly. A news report suggested that Presley’s mother used to cook these sandwiches in Bacon fat and used Hawaiian bread.
