1. Goldfish and Cold Cut Sandwich

I enjoy any sub sandwich with either barbeque or regular potato chips inside. Sometimes, you need a bit of crunch to your meal! But, when one individual said, “Goldfish on a cold cut sandwich,” I had a look of horror on my face; however, after the fact, this combination made sense. A bit of crunch and extra cheese flavor in my sandwich will never hurt. It looks like I need to get myself some goldfish.

2. Black Coffee and Beef Jerky

Now this is something I can’t, nor do I ever want to relate to. One individual claims their unlikely food combination is “Black coffee and beef jerky.” I cannot wrap my head around this bitter and savory combination. Surprisingly, this combination had 2,000 people liking it, one of the most liked combos. I guess it’s one way to add protein to your morning cup of coffee.

3. Fried Foods and Honey

Now this is a combination I can get behind! One individual said their unlikely food combination is “Fried foods dipped in honey. Savory and sweet”. Although I never had this combination, I agree that sweet and savory is one of the ultimate food combinations, and I love honey and fried foods!

4. Cheddar and Apples

Cheese please! But with apples, whoa, there! I can agree with apples with cinnamon, caramel, or even chocolate, but cheddar! This is truly a unique combination. “Cheddar and apples.” What surprises me, another individual commented, “Brie cheese and granny smith apples make a good combo.” I must be living under a rock or something.

5. Carrots and Mustard

Another unique combination I’ve never heard of. One individual said, “Carrots dipped in mustard. Natural sweet mixed with tart. It’s pretty good actually.” Although I am not a big mustard fan, I love carrots. This might be something worth trying.

6. Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwich

“Peanut butter and bacon sandwich.” Although it’s on this list, I wouldn’t call this an unlikely combination since Elvis’s favorite sandwich is peanut butter, banana, and bacon. I still wouldn’t want to be in the same room with this meal. Sorry Elvis, but the bacon killed it for me.

7. Honey, Mint, and Watermelon

Sweet, refreshing, and juicy! Honey, mint, and watermelon make a surprisingly delicious combination! I am 100% behind this one individual when they said, “Honey and mint on top of watermelon.” Even with just watermelon and mint alone, you have me hooked! If you haven’t tried this combination, go to your local grocery store to pick up the ingredients for this sweet treat!

8. French Fries and Vanilla Milkshake

Wendy’s, that’s what I instantly thought of. “French fries dipped in vanilla milkshake” was one individual’s unlikely food combination. Another individual commented and agreed with my line of thought, “French fries dipped in a Wendy’s chocolate frosty.” I even dip my chicken nuggets as well! I might’ve never tried fried foods with honey, but french fries with a milkshake is a deliciously nostalgic treat.

9. Salt and Melon

I understand where this individual comes from when they said, “Little salt on watermelon and cantaloupe is the best.” The salt will bring out the sweetness of those melons, but I am just not a fan of salt in general. Just give me my watermelon, no seasoning, please.

10. Blue Cheese and Fig Jam

Now this is an unlikely combination. One individual said, “Blue cheese and fig jam. It’s amazing on crackers or on a burger.” I have no idea how and why this combination exists, but the surprising thing is another individual commented, “It’s all about the goat cheese and fig jam.” I wonder if they enjoy cheese with their wine?
