Strange Food Combinations

Postby poohbcarrot » Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:15 pm

In the Last Continent, Rincewind mentions disgusting food concoctions made in the wee small hours when drunk. He also accidently discovered Vegemite when trying to make bread with beer and salt.

When I was a kid I loved banana and sugar sandwiches. :shock:
15 years ago when I lived in the UK I used to love Cornflakes and milk with Horlicks generously sprinkled on top.
Now one of my favourite (non-alcoholic) drinks is grape juice with milk. :P

What strange food/drink combinations do you like?

I like to put drinking chocolate powder into plain yoghurt & dip shortcake biscuits in - yum. But all nice things so not really that wierd. When I was a teenager I used to make chocolate spread & peanut sandwiches, tasted a bit like marathons (snickers, whatever).

I also believe that there aren't many foods that don't taste better with vinegar & grated parmesan. But now I'm on a diet so my vegetables actually taste like vegetables. Wierd :lol:
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

I used to love crisp,plain flavoured & oxo sandwiches. :D
I loved eating condensed milk out of the tin with a spoon, best if opened & left in the fridge over night. :D

I used to enjoy hot dogs with salad cream, with hundreds & thousands sprinkled on top.
The thing is, the hot dog had to be hot in order that the sugar strands melted into the salad cream...

Also, if anyone wanted potato soup I would mix smash potato with too much water so that it really did taste like soup.

I still like crisp sandwiches, but I haven't had the other two for years!

One drunken night, all I had in the house was some Sharwoods vindaloo paste and a fruit cake. I had this great idea that it would make a nice sweet and spicy snack. It didn't . It was 'orrible! :D

Although there's a certain logic to it as you can put sultanas in curry... :P

I think the most salient part of that sentence was: 'one drunken night...'

Yuck!

Kebabs! God I love kebabs. Food of the Gods! You can buy Marmite and Beans and almost every other UK food but very, very rarely do you find kebabs in Japan.

Have you ever put a piece of kebeb meat in your fridge overnight and looked at it the next day? :lol:

We used to have a man with a van selling kebabs, I loved them too, but his van caught fire on the main road one day. It was quite a blaze. :shock: :D
