Crazy combos

March 11, 2010 —

Some days, I crave for a snack that comes in pairs like strawberry + Cool-Whip, pretzels + peanut butter, chips + salsa, and especially McDonald’s fries + ice cream cone…really! If you have not tried this sweet and salty pair, give it a try. You might be surprised at how lovely this pair can be.

I’ve heard of some strange combos that I have not personally tried but are apparently common in some families. Have you heard of Laughing Cow cheese with bananas? I mean I do like both, separately though, I just haven’t had the desire to change the flavor of my banana. I like my fruits fresh or with whipped cream but with cheese? I haven’t thought about that!

What crazy pairs do you most enjoy?

Tea Nguyen is a dual degree D.P.M./M.P.H. student at DMU. She was born in Utah but raised in California and left the great state to be at one of the best podiatry school in the country.

She has aspirations in international medical service trips and hopes to hit several continents during this lifetime. Traveling is also on the top of her to-do list and she often reminisces about her prior travels to Italy, France and Greece. She also enjoys eating adventures with her boyfriend Paul and is a major food-snacker. It is not uncommon to find her lapsed in a food coma in the middle of her studies.

    I like tomatoes with peanut butter. I bet nobody tries it!

  • Anne

    That’s too funny! My four kids have always dipped their McDonald’s fries into the ice cream. I wonder psychologically what that means????

    People look at me funny when I dip grilled cheese into catsup.

    To each his or her own, I guess!

    I crave Wendy’s Frosties with fries some days! Reminds me of college days. SO good!

    Anne, my mom has always eaten grilled cheese with tomato soup to dip into!

    My mom does oranges with salt – I think that’s just gross. She also does cottage cheese with raisins – which I also think is gross.

    I don’t think I have any weird combos – I guess like mother not like daughter sometimes when it comes to eating habits. :)

    Extra-crunchy Jif peanut butter on an apple is heavenly!

    Laughing Cow cheese with bananas sounds disgusting. I like my bananas by themselves.
