There are some foods that just go together; like ice cream and cake, and wine and cheese, and then there are pairings that may have you throwing up at the thought of eating them. But BUZZ fam, don’t knock them ’til you’ve tried them.

Here are ten (10) weird food pairings that will shock you with how good they are.

Corn and coconut

You probably already know that corn tastes delicious when boiled in coconut milk (if you don’t, go try it), but have you ever had a boiled corn with coconut? It’s not only delicious, it’s a super healthy snack too.

Pizza dipped in soda

You’ve been eating that one pizza all day, and frankly just a little too lazy to make it to the microwave to heat it up. Just dip it in some soda, you’ll be getting a nice surprise.

Mac and cheese and Doritos

Whatever tea you’re having, soak your bread in it. This will soften the bread, and add a different flavour too.

Popcorn and Jelly

Ramen and sausage

Okra and chicken

For some people this is a staple in their chicken, for others the idea is very unnatural. But basically, it’s vegetable, chicken, and the delectable moistness that only okras give.

Peanut and Chicken
