If it involves food, I’m there.
From dunking chips into various concoctions to slapping gravy on just about anything and everything, my friends have some ~interesting~ culinary faves. I asked a handful of my besties for some of their slightly unusual foodie habits, and gave them a go! Here’s what I thought…
First up, I went in with something that sounded like if it went well, it could be something I’d actually like – a peanut butter, Marmite, and cucumber sandwich.
Next, I decided to try a popular yet divisive combo – McDonald’s fries dipped in milkshake. I mean separately these two are stunning, so I had high hopes.
Another fave was smoked salmon with salt and vinegar crisps. This one came from a foodie friend so while this was certainly one of the more ‘out there’ combos, I was up for giving it a try!
Next up, something I was a bit unsure of – enter tinned hot dogs and noodles. My main concern with this wasn’t that the combo would be bad necessarily, just that I’m not a big fan of the hot dogs in the first place.
A popular suggestion seemed to be bacon with sweet toppings. One friend said marmalade and, although I like both ingredients separately, I wasn’t convinced.
After asking around, I was told that bacon can also be great with white chocolate, so I decided to try that too.
Keeping on the sweet and savoury theme, the combo of grapefruit and salt came up as a fave of one of my teammates. I actually used to dislike grapefruit, but honestly this was so good!
Now, I love avocado and I adore a good spag bol so the next one intrigued me. I couldn’t imagine how the warm bolognese sauce would go with the avo. I only had pasta available, but I combined the sauce with the ‘IT’ breakfast fave to put it to the taste test.
The next one probably makes perfect sense in all honesty, but one of my BFFs is obsessed with KFC gravy. She’s even been known to drink it on its own as an afternoon snack. Anyway, she likes dipping crisps into it, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Next, I asked a colleague for more unusual food inspo, and it was suggested that the combo of apple and prawn cocktail crisps was elite, so off to the shop I went.
Do you have an odd food combo you’d like me to try? Let me know in the comments! 🍉🧀🍕
