No one would think twice about certain food pairings like chocolate and peanut butter.


But at one point, what we see as the perfect confectionary merge might have been perceived as bold and adventurous, maybe even objectionable.
Foruntately, whether or not the mocha buttery union was accidental, we're grateful for it.
It seems nowadays people are open to being experimental with their culinary curiosities and coming up with their own chocolate and peanut butter eureka moment.
There can be a lot of misses, but there can also be food pairings that are unexpected but delectable smashes.

Curious to hear about what strangers online came up with in their kitchens, Redditor Paiman55 asked:

"What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?"

You won't find these sandwiches and pizza on a menu anywhere.

Fruit And Cheese

"My mum has eaten jam and cheese sandwiches her entire life. No one else I've ever seen consume them."

"I asked her about it a few years ago, and she explained that a) jam isn't too dissimilar to a lot of chutneys, and the salty and sweet balances perfectly; b) I enjoy cheese with fruit in it, such as Wensleydale with cranberries, so the idea of 'fruit and cheese' as a combo isn't so strange in theory; and c) it's her sandwich, not mine, and I could f'k off."

Peanut Butter Pairs With...

"peanut butter/pickles sandwich."

"First time I saw my dad making a peanut butter / pickle sandwich I asked if he was pregnant. Then he made me try some. And now I eat them myself. And have spread the love to at least two friends who also enjoy them."

"Sh*t, sometimes I just take a spoonful of peanut butter and a fork to the pickle jar …"

Fusion Pie

"Kimchi and pizza. The acidity of the kimchi cuts through the pizza grease wonderfully. You can probably use anything pickled honestly."

Blue cheese is delicious by itself. But other than on salads, these Redditors thought the creamy dressing worked well on other dishes.

Blue Cheese Dressing Makes Everyone Delicious

"Microwave taquitos and blue cheese dressing. Yes, I know it's gross and yes, I am ashamed."

Perfect For A Snowy Christmas

"Gingerbread and blue cheese."

Malk_McJorma

"ooh, I can actually imagine how amazing that tastes!"

If you think outside the box, salt might be a free-for-all flavor enhancer.

Seasoning Fruit

"Apparently salt on fruit is weird but it's something my family has always done."

FunWelcome

"My mother only ever did it with Cantaloupe. It does draw out the the sweetness somehow."

Creamy, Savory Delight

"Salt on ice cream. Especially single flavor. Brings out so many different nuances."

Milk with cereal is so early 80s and 90s.

Milk 'N Pop

"If you want weird, try mixing some milk with some diet coke, it turns into this tea like substance, my family member used to like drinking that when I was a kid and I used to like it too, now I cant stand it."

Try At Your Own Risk

"Alright. I'll confess. Ramen noodles and warm milk."

"I know. I know. I get it. It's f'king nasty. I understand. My mom used to put milk in Campbells chicken soup I when I was a kid, and when I evolved into Broke College Student I started making my own milky chicken soup out of bouillon and bulk ramen noodles. I started cutting corners by simmering the bouillon cube in the milk while the noodles boiled in their own pot. I thought it would amplify the flavor, but I honestly just lost the ability to give a f'k somewhere in there."

"Then one day, when I was deliriously sick and just struggling to survive, I forgot the bouillon part and just flopped a bunch of ramen noodles into a bowl of warm milk. Wasn't actually all that bad. It's become a kind of comfort food when I'm feeling low."

"Don't try it for yourself though. It's a fondness born out of early 20's suffering and is Not worth it."

Crisps And Ice Cream

"Plain Potato chips and Vanilla Ice Cream is oddly good together. Also when I was in Army basic training I would put Peanut Butter on Pancakes because it was easier and faster than putting syrup on them."

When I was a kid, I tried a homemade dressing I thought was gross while visiting my parents' friends house.

Because I was taught to eat whatever was placed in front of me at the dinner table served by any host, I had no choice but to oblige.

The dressing on the cabbage was a mixture of Hellman's mayonnaise and soy sauce. I was used to having those condiments individually, not together.

But when I reluctantly tried it, I braced myself, expecting the worst. I was actually pleasantly surprised how much I really enjoyed it.

Milk and ramen, however, is something I would never try, no matter how well my parents disciplined me to eat whatever was served. I have my limits.

Sex is an important part of life.

That is just a fact.

But sex is also about connection and intimacy.

It's the biggest problem in the world, but partners should discuss it.

We all have things which get on our nerves.

Some people have a fairly high tolerance level, and are only truly perturbed by things which are beyond the bounds of common decency, or which are universally accepted as annoying or inconvenient.

Others are not so lucky, and tend to be set off by things which might go completely unnoticed by everyone else.

Redditor Onatic420 was curious to learn the things which instantly make others want to pull their hair out and scream, leading them to ask:

"What do you find annoying as f*ck?"

How many of us heard the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" as a child?

Or were told by their parents that watching too much television would make your eyes fall out?

Needless to say, these, as well as other sayings and superstitions, were not 100% accurate, possibly even having no truth to them whatsoever

Rather, these were merely a way to encourage, or scare, children into better eating habits, or getting away from the TV once and a while.

Some however, have, took these and other unsubstantiated pieces of information literally, and continue to believe them to be true.

Redditor wste96 was curious to believe what other falsehoods people continue to believe, in spite of proof to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What's the biggest lie ever told that we, as a society, still believe in?"
