People Share Their Strangest Food Combinations That Taste Amazing

[rebelmouse-image 18356598 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dad likes to put ham slices into his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Brother exclusively dips his fried shrimp in apple sauce - he stopped going to Red Lobster when they stopped serving apple sauce, that's how committed he is. We're pretty sure that the best thing to pair with mozzarella cheese is a nice sweet, squishy banana; and celery absolutely goes with store-bought fudge cakes.

What we're saying is we have a weird-food pedigree, so when one Reddit user asked:

What's the strangest food combination that you've had and actually enjoyed?

We knew we'd be clicking (and snacking) for a while. We gathered 20 food combinations that made us arch an eyebrow. Are you, and your tastebuds, ready for this exploration through the culinary backroads of strange snacks? Here we go.

Fresas Con Crema

[rebelmouse-image 18356599 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar. Everyone I've told about it thinks its crazy but every single person that tried it, liked it. It's called "fresas con crema" and its actually very common in Latinamerican countries :) they are just delicious!

Sweet Cheesus!

[rebelmouse-image 18356600 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I came home to find my brother rolling a one pound block of Monterey Jack cheese in cinnamon sugar and just biting chunks off. His defense was he was "too tired to cook".

Marshmallow Sauce

[rebelmouse-image 18356601 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sweet Potato Fries dipped in Marshmallow sauce. Like where the F has this been hiding and why is it sooo good? I'm totally familiar with sweet potato casserole with marshmallow sauce smothered all over it for Thanksgiving, ( I mean I'm Cuban/American so we spice thanksgiving up a lot) but this was legit like a cup of marshmallow sauce with all sorts of paprika and different spices in it. I didn't make the connection so it was so incredibly strange to me.

Fruit Pizza

[rebelmouse-image 18356602 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Had a pear and gorgonzola pizza in Italy once, it was sooo good!

Pear and Gorgonzola go miraculously together, we used to have salad packed with those at a pizza pace I used to work at

Pear, gorgonzola, with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar...it's my favorite pizza ever!

I had a fig & gorgonzola pizza with a balsamic vinaigrette drizzle on top and I still dream about it.

Low Sugar Apricot Jam

[rebelmouse-image 18356603 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I wanted to eat a reduced-sugar diet so bought some low sugar apricot jam. This was the most disappointing jam I ever had. It was not very sweet at all, and so runny it was more like a sauce. A sandwich I really like is grilled chicken with greens and mango chutney. I realized the jam tasted more like a chutney and I tried it in this sandwich and it was actually awesome.

So, as a jam, this stuff sucked. But as a sauce for sweet/savory dishes it was perfect. It's way cheaper than chutneys and the like, and much easier to get. It's a nice low-sugar, low-calorie way to make a normally bland but health sandwich taste really good.

Cucumber And Nutella

[rebelmouse-image 18353770 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cucumber dipped in nutella is surprisingly good.

"College Made Me Creative"

[rebelmouse-image 18356604 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Rice covered in maple syrup. Sometimes even throw in a cut up chicken patty. College made me creative.

Try Dipping Fries In...

[rebelmouse-image 18346638 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mayonnaise on french fries. There's a culture somewhere that does it, but it's not common in the States.

Dr. Pepper

[rebelmouse-image 18356605 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not food, but I recently discovered that mixing two parts vodka, one part 7-up and one part dr. Pepper completely eliminates the taste of the vodka. This way you can get sh*tfaced on cheap vodka without having to worry about the bad taste.

Diet Dr. Pepper + Bourbon is my go-to, it's low in sugar and cheap. Something about dr. Pepper covers the taste of booze better than other mixers for me.

BBQ Bread

[rebelmouse-image 18356606 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Grab yourself a slice of really good sourdough bread (and if you can get rosemary parm sourdough you are in for an even better treat), add a bit of your favorite BBQ sauce and some cheese and bake it in the oven. Its basically a weird BBQ pizza, but the sourdough makes it incredible.

Cheese And Coffee

[rebelmouse-image 18356607 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cheddar cheese rolled in ground coffee and drizzled with honey. Some weird Spanish thing, but its tasty!

Pickleback, Not Nickelback

[rebelmouse-image 18356608 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Picklebacks. It's when you chase a shot of whiskey with pickle juice. Sounds weird but I love them.

Salty Spicy Sweet

[rebelmouse-image 18356609 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sea Salt on watermelon.

Sea salt + Lemon juice + Chili dust on any fruit is heavenly. Very common snack in Mexico, btw.

PB&P?

[rebelmouse-image 18356610 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Everyone should try a peanut butter and pickle sandwich. It's incredibly satisfying. Precut pickles with crunchy pb...YUM

Sweet Cold Hot Dogs

[rebelmouse-image 18356611 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cold hot dogs dipped in berry jam.

Miracle Whip

[rebelmouse-image 18356613 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad is a weirdo and would always make me bizarre food as a kid. Surprisingly, I actually really like tomato, miracle whip and peanut butter sandwiches.

Jam On It

[rebelmouse-image 18356615 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Raspberry jam on an egg sandwich. It sounds weird at first, but the sandwich was two fried eggs on some buttered Italian bread with sharp cheese and prosciutto. The jam was lathered on one of the slices of toast. Salty, sweet, sharp all in one bite; it went surprisingly well together.

Oily Ice Cream

[rebelmouse-image 18353506 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Really nice vanilla bean ice cream and really nice olive oil - it's a desert at one of my favorite restaurants and me and my dad split it every time we go.

Spaghetti-O's?

[rebelmouse-image 18356616 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In 4th grade I wrapped a Lay's potato chip in a piece of blue/red fruit by the foot and remember it tasting like SpaghettiOs

The Sweet Scramble

[rebelmouse-image 18356617 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Scrambled eggs with a big ole scoop of vanilla ice cream. Don't knock it till you try it!

There are just some things in life that are not necessary knowledge.

Maybe we always hold out that tiny bit of hope we will one day be on Jeopardy... because you never know.

It's the creepy facts about life that leave me wondering and reeling.

Hitchhikers Describe The Most Memorable Ride A Stranger Has Ever Given Them

Hitchhiking. It has to be one of the most dangerous things a person can do.

There are too many movies where a hitchhiker falls victim to some psycho, and they're shocked it's happening.

Like... Hello?!?! You got into some stranger's car. How could you not get killed?

Also, all throughout childhood years we tell kids to NEVER get into a stranger's car.

But once we're 18 that rule seems to no longer apply.

I feel like it should be MORE prescient in adulthood.

But I'm sure all the survivors have quite the tale to share.

RedditorWestTexasOilmanwanted all of the road travelers to share some memories about past rides. They asked:

"Current or Former Hitchhikers of Reddit; What person that stopped or gave you a ride was the most memorable? Why?"

Americans Break Down The Things They Appreciate Most About The U.S.

Let's put this up front: the United States of America is not the greatest country in the world.

It's just a fact. We're not tops in the world in education, our maternity leave for new mothers pales in comparison to most European countries, which is to say nothing of our healthcare as a whole, and our average income per household?

8th. Last we checked, that's not 1st.

It's not all doom and gloom though. There are still a lot of things to love about the good ol' U. S. of A. And if you love something, you fight for it, to make it better, and truly try to achieve the ranking of "best."
