16 Weird Food Combinations That Simply Should Not Exist
Some food combinations seem strange at first, but turn out to be surprisingly delicious. We’re thinking specifically of combos like pineapple on pizza, prosciutto on honeydew melon, and french fries dipped in milkshake. The first person to try these combos probably got some strange looks, but now nobody bats an eye over an order of Hawaiian pizza.
However, some food combinations go beyond mere oddity and head straight towards disgusting territory. We’re talking foods that probably shouldn’t even even touch each other on a plate, much less be purposefully joined together in a meal.
We don’t know who invented the following bizarre food combinations, but we’re pretty sure they have stomachs made of cast iron.
Banana Cinnamon Pizza
Okay, we’ve heard of dessert pizza before, but this is a whole new level of yuck. This pizza contains a delightful (ha ha) combo of banana, cinnamon, mozzarella, and condensed milk.
Yes, you read that right: condensed milk. My stomach hurts just thinking about it.
Mushroom, Peaches, and Blue Cheese
I don’t care if it’s drizzled with “strawberry vinaigrette” — this meal sounds utterly nauseating. Who in their right mind ever thought combining mushrooms and peaches would be a good idea, much less binding it all together with the stinkiest soft cheese imaginable?
Pear, Mayo and Cherry Salad
According to Allrecipes, this is indeed an actual recipe you can make:
“Sweet and delightful! Pears are filled with mayonnaise and cheese, then topped off with a festive cherry. A sure party pleaser.”
I guarantee that if you serve this to your guests at your next party, people will be running for the door (or the bathroom). It brings to mind the sort of gross old-fashioned recipes that our grandparents used to make, except with less gelatin.
Waffles with Pasta Sauce
Who decided this was worth trying?
Waffles = good. Spaghetti sauce = good. But together?
Cherry Blossom Flavored Lays
Granted, I’ve never actually eaten a cherry blossom, so I can’t say for sure that they’re not delicious. But still… cherry blossoms are flower petals, so they probably taste like, well, flower petals. No thanks.
Sausage Pork with Gummy Bears
Ah yes, the perfect foundation for all of your favorite gummy bear dishes, like meatloaf (with gummy bears), or perhaps some delicious meatballs (with gummy bears).
File this one under: Why, though?
Pickle, Goldfish Cracker, and Mayo Sandwich
Again, all of these ingredients are perfectly appropriate on their own. Yet when you put them all together on bread, you’ve got yourself a sandwich we wouldn’t feed to our worst enemy.
Cereal with Berries and Orange Juice
Hey, you drink OJ while eating cereal sometimes, right? Why not just skip the middle man and put it all in one bowl?
Frosted Flakes with Cheese
I swear, if you throw slices of processed American cheese into my cereal, we’re going to have a problem.
Just going out on a limb here… were there mind-altering drugs involved in the decision to craft this meal?
Twinkie Weiner Sandwiches with Mustard
It’s a hot dog (which may or may not be cooked, judging by this photo) inside a sliced Twinkie.
There’s really nothing more to say here.
Popcorn with Ketchup
Some people will put ketchup on anything! What did popcorn ever do to you?
Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger
Can I have my burger without PB and J? Or my PB and J without burger?
They can tell me not to knock it till I try it, but I’m still gonna knock it. Hard.
Again, this one has to be stoner food, because there’s no way anyone in their right mind would ever think to melt chocolate all over a perfectly good cheese pizza.
Salad with Ice Cream
Why separate your meal into courses when you can eat it a;;t once? It all ends up in the same place anyway, right?
Tuna Fish with Barbecue Sauce
And carrots for dipping!
I’d say more about this incredibly disturbing snack choice, but I suddenly find myself needing to pop a few Tums. Blech.
