Some things are so wrong they're right.
It's a culinary truth that we all have to face (and should all embrace), so why not have fun with it? And I'm not just talking about dipping your fries in a milkshake (although you should absolutely do that) or put ranch dressing on your pizza (but seriously, do that too).
It it my firm belief that doing one thing that scares you every day is a damn good idea, and if your scary feat is eating apricot jam and chocolate syrup on sourdough bread, that's cool.
But where to find the inspiration? Reddit. Here are the best of the worst food combos that I found there, and the users that stand by them. But brace yourself, they give a whole new meaning to the term "odd couple."
1. Milk and soda.
"That's my breakfast drink right there." - thegutsyguy
Did your stomach just turn? Mine did.
2. Grilled Cheese and Mustard
"Grilled cheese with mustard. Not that yellow watery crap, but real grainy mustard." - Baull
I hesitantly vow to try this one day (and soon, because how many days can one really last without a grilled cheese?).
3. Strawberries and Sour Cream
"Strawberries dipped in sour cream and brown sugar." - Scorpionman42
Hey, it works in french cuisine. Crème fraîche on fresh fruit? Don't mind if I do.
4. Salami and Strawberry Jam
BadAndyMk3 is either a genius or a mad scientist...It wouldn't be the first time salty marries sweet and lived happily ever after.
5. Salt in Coffee
First it was butter, then it was coconut and now it's salt. Isn't that right, SpartanJer?
7. Hot Sauce and Ice Cream
"The protein in dairy, casein, binds to the capsaicin which is the compound that makes things spicy. This means that I am able to taste the fruitier notes used in common hot sauces without feeling the burn and giving a nice flavor to the ice cream (usually plain vanilla)." - The MotherFucker
Okay, if you say so dude.
8. Cookies and Sausage
"Dad's oatmeal cookies and garlic sausage. My grandfather introduced it to me and called it 'the bachelor's treat.'" - is_this_exercise
I'll just have to take your word for it.
9. Mac and cheese with Yogurt (instead of milk)
"Works basically the same, with a bit of a tangy kick." - senatorskeletor
But WHY? Some things just can't be explained, I guess.
10. Peanut Butter and Avocado Sandwiches
"Peanutbutter and hotdogs, or a peanutbutter and mayo sandwich." - copetrain
Three combinations I can happily live the rest of my life not knowing.
11. Old Bay Cupcakes
"I'm from Baltimore, so I like Old Bay crab seasoning on everything. Crab flavored vodka, crab flavored cupcakes, crab flavored chocolate, crab flavored coffee, crab flavored mangoes, etc...Everything can taste like a crab." -shinkouhyou
Mom, I mean Ron, I'm scared.
12. Beetroot and Mayonnaise Sandwiches
"Seriously try it, it's beautiful." - brigante87
I ain't mad about it. Shoutout to all those who feel insecurity about their favorite foods. You're not crazy.
13. Fish Fingers and Custard
Dear rhoderzz, this is a joke, right?
14. Quesadilla and Mustard
"I am in love with quesadilla and mustard." - parsnip puree
Don't let anyone tell you who and who you can't love.
15. Chocolate Chip Cookies Mashed Up into Applesauce
"It's unbelievable." - senator skeletor
I haven't laughed this hard since Dave Chappelle's SNL monologue.
16. Bananas Slices on Tuna Sandwiches
Hey crypton01, ever heard the saying "don't fix it if it's not broken?"
17. Store-Bought Chocolate Chip Cookies Dipped in Orange Juice
"Mmmmm." - fightsactualfoo
You crazy, bruh.
18. Cottage Cheese and Potato ChipsClose goat_smelk, but no cigar. Sour cream and potato chips are where it's at, and I say that from person experience.
19. Pretzels and Sprite"I like to dip my pretzels in Sprite." - chafedcat
20. Pickle Juice and Cake
"It's like a weird tres leches cake." - bobeharvard
Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope.
21. Egg Whites and Grape Jelly

22. Pasta and Ice Cream.
"Seriously, get some al dente penne and throw that shit in some homemade vanilla from blue bell. it'll change your world." - theyregret
I don't think so buddy.
23. Oreo's and Orange Juice
Let's never meet for lunch, okay panda_queen?
24. Peaches Dipped in Ranch
"Good god!" - wheres_the_sauce
Jesus take the wheel.
25. Cotton Candy Wrapped Around Fresh Soft Pretzels
"The sweet & salty warmth is delectable." greeneyedandgroovy
Yeah right, maybe if I had enough Old Bay vodkas.
26. Peanut Butter and Bacon
"Peanut butter and bacon on a Montreal style poppy seed bagel." - brentoage
Bloody brilliant. I fully support this.
27. Gingerbread Dipped in Tomato Soup
