10 Weirdest Food Combinations (That Taste Good!)

It happens to everyone. You see a friend or family member bite into a food combination that looks weird or gross. Your face registers your apprehension, but internally you’re wondering what it tastes like. Whether it’ a peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich or a pickled beet, don’t knock it ‘til you try it as they say! Here are 10 totally weird combinations that taste delicious!
 
1. Hot sauce and cauliflower
This snack is perfect for New Year’s resolutioners who are trying to cut carbs. With a similar flavor profile as chicken wings and hot sauce, drizzling cooked or raw cauliflower with your favorite wing sauce is a great, healthy substitute!
 
2. Sriracha and peanut butter
This flavor combination has roots in Thai-style cooking. Try sriracha on your peanut butter sandwich, or, if you’re feeling really bold, try adding peanut butter, sriracha and a fried egg to your next hamburger.
 
3. French fries and ice cream
 
4. Pizza and M&Ms
Foodies recommend plain M&Ms on cheese pizza (channeling Mia’s apology pizza in The Princess Diaries).
 
5. Hamburger and jelly
 
6. Broccoli and Cheetos
If you love broccoli and cheese, try crushing Cheetos on top of your next batch! The same cheesy taste with an added crunchy bonus, you’ll never look at broccoli the same again.
 
7. Maple and bacon
 
8. Chocolate and soy sauce
Chemically, chocolate and soy sauce were made for each other! The saltiness of the soy sauce perfectly complements the sweetness of the chocolate (think of other sweet and salty treats like chocolate covered pretzels). If you want to give it a try, dip one piece of a chocolate bar in soy sauce or lightly drizzle soy over a bit of chocolate cake.
 
9. Chocolate and avocado
 
10. Ramen and cheese
If you’re on a Ramen budget and you need to spice it up a bit, try adding cheese to your next cup full. Any kind will do, but try cheddar first if you’re apprehensive.
