I grew up eating something that I still really enjoy but that some folks think is strange…
Salami wraps with cream cheese in the middle.
I know it might sound weird but they are delicious!
Do you have any weird food combos that other people think are strange?
These folks on AskReddit sure do! Let’s take a look.
1. Thanks, Grandma.
“My grandma taught me to eat fried egg on toast with grape jelly.
Perfect combo of savory/sweet.”
2. You gotta do it the right way.
“Dipping my ham and cheese toastie into a mug of hot chocolate.
Heavenly, the trick is a very quick dip, the bread will absorb it either way and you want to avoid total sogginess at all costs.”
“Feta cheese on a regular hot dog.
I had no idea other people would even consider it gross, it’s delicious.”
“Make some spicy ramen noodles, but add the flavor pack in after you cook and drain the noodles.
Add a bit of peanut butter, a dash of lemon juice and sugar to taste.
Throw in some tofu. Gourmet ramen!”
5. Not for everyone.
“My favorite sub is tuna with pickles, black olives, and cheddar cheese, and I don’t think it’s weird at all.
But I’ve literally had the sandwich shop say “gross” after I ordered it so it’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea haha.”
6. Just walk away.
“My husband has some interesting combinations but his favorite is ramen cup of noodles with popcorn.
He will eat all the noodles and then dump popcorn into the broth. It gets all shriveled and that’s how he likes it.
I have to walk away.”
“I used to get peperoni with tuna salad and cheddar w/ banana peppers.
One time the woman asked me if I was pregnant.”
“Peanut butter, honey, pickle and goldfish cracker sandwich.
It was something random my son asked for once when he was like 3 and I’ve been eating them ever since.
You can also use Doritos instead of goldfish crackers.”
9. Getting funny looks.
“Strawberry jam and cheese on a sandwich.
I really don’t think it’s that weird but people look at me funny when I say I like it.”
10. Give it a shot.
“Slow-cooked pinto (or black) beans, hot, with some of the liquid, poured over vanilla ice cream. The liquid acts as a sauce, and cuts the sweetness while satisfying like a chocolate sauce might. The beans start hot and soft on cold, firm ice cream.
Slowly the ice cream softens, and the beans freeze, so it offers contrast of texture different in the first bite than it does in the last. There’s a lot going on, but if you try it with beans from a can, you’re wasting your time on disappointment.”
“BBQ sauce on mashed potatoes.
I don’t do it every time but whenever I have like BBQ chicken with mashed potatoes, I’ll dip them in the sauce.”
12. All about the textures.
“Mac and cheese, then mixed with apple sauce.
I mean, apples and cheese are a very classic mix, so this just works.
I like to mix at the last minute so the hot and cold texture stays too.”
13. Sounds kinda gross.
“Ranch on spaghetti.
It’s really no different than dipping pizza into ranch, but people get grossed out when I do it.”
14. You do you.
“I like mayo on steak and cheese hoagies.
Apparently a lot of people think that is disgusting, but I love it.
I also love putting habanero flakes on steamed vegetables, and horseradish on pierogies and kielbasa.”
15. Your favorite.
“Cinnamon on microwaved grilled cheese was my favorite as a young kid with far too much responsibility over what I ate.
Instant mashed potatoes with American cheese and honey was another big one. (I stopped eating meat at a young age and my mother wouldn’t make separate non meat meals).
In college a friend made me try her nasty looking breakfast and it was fantastic. Egg and cheese on a bagel with cream cheese.”
16. No thanks.
“Dipping raw pasta (usually spaghetti) into butter and eating it.
Crunchy and smooth at the same time.”
“Chocolate milk in chili.
Was dared to mix the two when I was in first grade, and I’ve been doing it ever since.”
18. A gift from God.
“But some people I’ve told about it think applesauce and pretzels sounds gross.
I think it’s a gift from God!”
19. For hot summer days.
“Crisp , cold watermelon and feta cheese, especially on hot summer days.
Picked that up on a vacation to Egypt once and fell in love.
But anyone I recommend it to looks at me with disgust.”
20. A strange combo.
“Scrambled eggs with chocolate added.
The chocolate goes great in Coca-Cola too.”
21. NOT WEIRD.
“I always get s**t for eating chips (fries) with baked beans and beef gravy.
It’s delicious but people can’t get their head around it.
Also baked beans straight from the can. That’s another I get b**ched at for. They are already cooked and actually taste better cold.
It’s not weird.”
22. Better than it sounds.
“Salted cantaloupe, bacon, and cheddar cheese in a tortilla wrap.
It is better than it sounds.”
23. Don’t get upset, people.
“Cheese Burger with sauerkraut, no bun.
Just beef patty, melted cheese on top, and sauerkraut on top of that. I might be inclined to add some mustard, but otherwise it’s fine as it is.
Most people don’t like sauerkraut to begin with, but using it as a topping for a burger seems to really make people upset.”
24. Sorry, New Jersey.
“Ketchup on pizza don’t ask but depending on the pizza it tastes like heaven.
Distant screaming can be heard from the direction of New Jersey.”
25. Uh uh.
“I put ketchup on my macaroni and cheese. Or barbecue sauce.
Adds a little tang because macaroni can be a tad boring.
Everyone I know is disgusted by this. I don’t care because it’s f**king fantastic.”
26. An acquired taste.
“I don’t normally tell people about my sardine salad sandwiches because sardines are an acquired taste that most don’t want to acquire.
Sardines, chopped green olives, chopped celery, mayo, hot sauce.
Stir it up until its uniform, then put it between two slices of toast.”
27. Not sure about this one…
“I love to put applesauce on my pizza.
The few people that I’ve convinced to try it love it, but it’s a huge hurdle to get over.”
Okay, it’s time for you to spill your guts…
