Sure, we're all familiar with viral food combos, like pineapple on pizza. However, there are plenty more odd food combinations out there to try!
Orange Juice and Oreos
You read it right! Yes, some dunk their Oreos into orange juice instead of milk. The reason? Well, when the combo first went viral, some compared it to chocolate oranges or Jaffa Cakes (chocolate orange cookies), both of which are very popular in the United Kingdom. However, those that hate it say that the combo of sweet and acidic simply do not go well with one another. We'll let you decide!
Chocolate on Pizza
Alright, so you've mastered enjoying pineapple on pizza. Now, try the newest pizza trend: chocolate pizza. That's right! And we're not talking about a dessert pizza, no. Rather, it's a cheesy pizza that's then covered in little pieces of chocolate before heading to the oven. Those who love sweet and salty combinations will adore this recipe!
Cheetos and Milk
Tired of dipping your Oreos into orange juice? Well, why not try dunking your Cheeots into some milk? People all over Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, and even Facebook users have talked about a brand new way to start their morning. It looks like a bowl of cereal, except instead of a big bowl of cereal, it's a big bowl of Cheetos with milk poured on top. Those who love it say that the milk enhances the cheese taste of the Cheetos and, nutritionally, Cheetos are not that much different from any other puffed corn product, like Corn Flakes. We'll take your word for it...
Apple Pie with A Slice of Cheese
his midwestern American favorite might truly reign as king of the odd food combinations. A classic in that part of the country, lovers of apple pie with a slice of cheddar or American cheese say that it balances out the sweetness of the pie with a savory nuttiness, instead of just adding more sugar on with a scoop of ice cream. Believe it or not, the state of Vermont even made a law about making apple pies with cheese on the side! It says that "a la mode" slices should need to be served with ice cream, cold milk, or "a slice of cheddar cheese weighing a minimum of 1/2 ounce."
Fries and Honey
Now this is one strange food combination we can really get behind! Fries dipped in honey, instead of ketchup, sounds fantastic. After all, just take a look at the bottle of ketchup in your fridge. It likely has some honey in it, to begin with! It's really no wonder that many places in Korea serve French Fries with honey and butter, almost like cornbread.
Yes, these food combinations seem weird and totally off the rails. But who knows, maybe if you try one for fun, you might just find your next favorite snack.
