As it turns out, weird food combos aren't just for pregnant ladies, you can eat them anytime and they are quite popular. Here are some weird but good food combinations that you may want to try the next time you're out.

1. Potato Chips & Sandwiches This one goes back to when I was a kid. I was partial to Ruffles or Lay's Potato Chips (original flavor).
2. Pizza & Ranch Mmm... dipping pizza in ranch is so delicious I just can't even contain myself.
I love pickles and extra crispy bacon. Something about the contrast in temperature and texture makes it irresistible.
—a small amount of hot Chinese powdered mustard in cranberry sauce improves it immensely-—
Popcorn dipped with Peanut butter
Peanut Butter on toast (My Grandmother likes that one)
Mint Chocolate Chip and Pineapples
Jaggermeister and Tequila (OK, this one is horrible, but it actually generates it’s own heat)
I love bacon wrapped olives.
A Kosher Dill dipped in Peanut Butter.
Came up with that about 40 or so years ago... still love it to this day. No idea why I grabbed a pickle and thought “Hey, this could only be better with PB!”
Got my oldest daughter to try it... she liked it, too!
Makes my wife cringe. :)
Garlic Dills, too. Even plain ol’ Dills. Yum.
He's long dead now....and I can see why.
Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches...my dad loves peanut butter and pickles...
Lays potato chips dipped in French’s yellow mustard is all you’ll ever need ...
Peanut butter and ham sandwich.
Your dad isn’t alone (see post 7) :)
We'd give them two, but after that it was 50 cents a pack. We always joked it would be cheaper to go to Kroger and buy a bottle of Ranch.
Maybe not weird, but cottage cheese aside scrambled aggs is good.
Raisins in plain yogurt works.
Vidalia onion and peanut butter sandwiches!
Careful everyone, the DHS uses unique food combinations to track patriots.
Hot, apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese melted on top.
Some of my weird eats:
Chili on pancakes.
Potato chips with mustard. (Wonderful on a picnic.)
Potato chips or saltines dipped in mayonnaise.
Lime or lemon wedge sprinkled with sugar, eaten peel and all while your brother says you’re weird.
Watermelon sprinkled with sugar (why are you playing around with salt, mom? if you want it sweeter this is how)
Equal parts chilled canned fruit cocktail in juice, and cottage cheese, mixed together with several packets of Nutra-Sweet. Diet ambrosia.
A good hard cheese (parm, romano, asiago) goes good when drizzled with honey and balsamic, maybe a spot or two of cinnamon nearby.
Now THAT is a beautiful picture!
This isn't really weird, but I love Lay's Wavy Potato Chips and Helluva Good Horseradish Bacon Dip.
It’s hard to think of a food that would not be made yet better with bacon!
You need to try Tabasco sauce on vanilla ice cream. for some reason it doesn’t work with chocolate ice cream.
One variation of the chili-on-pancakes theme
Melon and prosciutto is a classic, as is a burger, fries and milkshake (but no need for dipping!)
The chips sandwich and ranch dressing anywhere, let alone on pizza, are just gross. Foie gras on waffles? I could see that, ‘cept it’s really unpleasant for the goose.
An black culture combo in Chicago is gaining popularity. Fried chicken with waffles.
Dumping a small pack of roasted, salted peanuts into a bottle of Coke or Dr. Pepper was a favorite oddity that I recall from childhood. Seems like everybody did it. Quite good. You don’t see it anymore because it doesn’t work in anything but the individual size glass bottles, which are not very easily found in most locations.
Sharp cheddar on certain sweets was common in my house, on apple pie, in those cream-filled soft oatmeal cookies, sometimes baked into the crust of fruit dishes, I think baking it in is a throwback to the early German settlers of the area.
Raw celery stalks work nicely with peculiar things, peanut butter, pimento cheese, cream cheese. Great snack on a hot day, very cooling.
Lightly sprinkling sugar and apple cider vinegar over sliced tomatoes can be surprisingly good and is apparently unusual.
French fries with mayo as a dip is good, not uncommon in other countries but odd here.
Beer and chocolate. No foolin.
Salami, Swiss, sliced apples, mustard & mayo. And maybe turkey.
Jagermeister is an “herbal digestif.” A glassful would be overdoing it, with or without the anise flavored Sambuca.
Dads seem to have the edge in this area. Mine loved peanut butter, mayo, and banana sandwiches.
For years Freepers (or FBI plants?) have been posting threads asking us who are our favorite bands, what are our favorite colors, movies, action heros, scotches, etc.
We've already been demographically sliced, diced, filed, and sorted.
When they come for me they can lure me out of my home with a hotdog smothered in peanut butter.
Fried calamari with buffalo wing sauce. Yum.
Tabasco on mango chunks or dried apricots is awesome....
Something I’ve used for various showers and other events as an hors d’ouvres that everyone likes:
A piece of Danish sliced ham spread with cream cheese (I use lite) with an asparagus spear rolled up. I’ve also had it with a pickle in place of the asparagus and it’s pretty good, too.
When my sister and I were young and didn’t feel well, we’d ask Mom to make us spaghetti with scrambled eggs. Doesn’t sound great, but we used to really enjoy it.
Take cooked spaghetti, put it in a pan with a little butter and scramble an egg (or 2 - depending how much spaghetti one has) and a little milk.
“Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches...”
Sounds good to me. And nice and fattening which I need.
The new tiny “health conscious” bottles of soda would be amenable to the peanut treatment I suppose.
Celery filled with PB or Cheese Whiz or something similar was a grade school lunch staple. Put raisins on it and you had what the lunch ladies called ants on a log.
I was too squeamish to eat lunch room pizza, though. I begged not to have to waste it, but no choice.
Ugh. I remember that. I think it was popularized by Elvis Presley. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches I like. Mayo and banana, slimy, flavors don’t sit well together to me. PBM is just disgusting.
Look for someplace that sells "Mexican" Coca Cola; they come in small glass bottles -- using real sugar instead of whatever Americanese Coke has.
Our local Walmart carries it -- but we've got a ton of Mexicans in the area.
