Well, when it comes to bizarre food cravings, you would think this is relegated to pregnant women only, but, look at the picture, chicken and waffles seem like a strange combination when you hear it out loud, but it's one of the best things in the world! So, with that in mind, what food and drink combinations out there actually work? Let's have a look.
Avocado And Chocolate
Yes! Believe it or not, a lot of people have been making creamy mousse that isn't just vegan-friendly, but it's also incredibly healthy. The mild taste that comes with avocado means that you can blend it up and it is barely noticeable when you pair it with a strong flavor like chocolate.
Wine And Candy
Most of us believe wine to be the nectar of the gods, which is why you wouldn't dare pair it with candy you can get from the corner store! But, wine goes amazingly with chocolate, especially white chocolate and red wines like Malbec. But if you're going for a taste sensation, sour candy and Riesling is amazing. Because a wine like Riesling starts off sweet in your mouth, pairing this with a sour candy is one of the strangest taste experiences that you'll keep coming back to.
Peanut Butter And Bacon
Granted, peanut butter has become a popular staple in burgers, so it's hardly a surprise that it's been tried in conjunction with bacon. The creaminess of the peanut butter in combination with the salty bacon goes great together.
Prosciutto And Melon
Fruit and ham sounds like a crime against nature, but in fact, it's used as a starter in many places. The salty and fatty prosciutto gets balanced out with the lightness of the melon. On the same token, having prawn and mango together as an appetizer is something you wouldn't consider to work, but sprinkled with a little paprika and lime juice, creates a refreshingly savory taste sensation.
French Fries And Ice Cream
Hold your horses! Before you begin pouring Ben and Jerry's onto your favorite carbohydrate, the way to pair these two together is to have one at a time. If you overload on salty snacks, like peanuts and chips, the ice cream’s sweetness balances out the saltiness, meaning you can go back for more. Try it for yourself! The next time you are in your favorite fast food eatery, and you order some French Fries, get a sundae on the side, and see what it does to your mouth. But of course, we know that all-conquering combination that is pancakes and ice cream, but if you saw that episode of Man v Food where he orders a side of bacon to help him with his pancake eating challenge, you'll know very well what it can do for you.
If you aren't much of a food adventurer, trying some flavor combinations may open you up to a larger world. After all, the stranger who put peanut butter and jelly together must have been viewed as a two-headed beast! And what about officer Reese’s…
