Against the odds

These bizarre food combinations will blow your MIND

Ever thought about putting cream cheese with jam? You’ve been missing out.

EBONY AND IVORY, opposites attract, against all odds.

Sometimes, the most unexpected things come together in perfect harmony. Some foods don’t seem immediately like natural bedfellows, but once you’ve come around to the unusual pairings, you’ll realise that they complement each other perfectly.

For example, one staff member (who shall remain nameless) enjoys nothing better than “a dry bread roll filled with sausages and lettuce – that’s it, no sauces, just the sausages and lettuce”. And who are we to judge?

Here are some unexpected but delicious food combinations that you should totally try.

Don’t knock them til you try them.

Cream cheese and jam

A firm favourite of a different (but similarly adventurous) writer. Apparently it’s the done thing in America.

Pizza and ketchup

This one is tricky. Surely there’s enough tomato-based sauce on the pizza already? And yet many of us love to dip pizza in ketchup. Mildly mystifying.

Apple and peanut butter

Delicious AND nutritious.

Chips in your sundae

Next time you’re hitting up Mickey D’s, dip your chip. And you can thanks us afterwards.

Carb on carb. Poetry.

Watermelon and feta

Apparently a summertime dessert delicacy in Turkey. Would you try it?

Kebab and chips on a pizza

A very common sight in Southern French eateries. Too much – or just enough? Well, what about with some added CHIPS?

Egg burger

Surprisingly common. Actually, eggs are often the glue in a weird food relationship. Egg on anything. Sure why not?
