When it comes to what we eat, we make decisions largely based on what sounds good before we use our other senses. Hearing about how juicy a burger or gooey a pizza makes us more likely to go for it. A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What was a food that you thought sounded disgusting, until after you tried it?”
Here are the top responses.
Peanut butter and pickle sandwich
One of the more unusual suggestions we’ve seen is adding pickles to a peanut butter sandwich. While pickles are a beloved addition to many sandwiches, pairing them with pickles apparently is a win!
One foodie shared: “Came here to say this! Crunchy peanut butter, a little mayo and dill pickle chips.”
Honey and Jams with cheese
A popular suggestion was to pair honey or jam with cheese. One foodie share their favorite way to enjoy this combination:
“I take an English muffin... split it, toast it, put a slice of sharp white cheddar on the face of each side. Toast again in toaster oven. When cheese is a little melted, I put them on a plate and add a small dollop of apricot jam to both. Then I savor it 😁”
Another foodie suggested: “Sprinkle sea salt on fresh mozzarella, then drizzle with raw honey. Divine.”
Beef Tongue Tacos
Also referred to as lengua tacos, the name alone makes most people want to avoid this dish. However, many users agreed that this was a must-try taco!
One foodie shared: “The best type of taco hands down.”
Made popular by Elvis himself, it is the recommended peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich.
Many foodies agreed sharing: “I had an Elvis for dinner. Delicious.”
While not a sandwich, one foodie had another way to enjoy this combination: “I’ve had a burger like this, think it was called the fat Elvis, and it was the best burger I’ve ever had.”
One foodie shared a unique dish from Eastern Europe: “There is a russian dish they eat on New Year's that's basically a savory pork jello. It looks weird but it's pretty good.”
Many users agreed sharing that while it sounds and looks weird, it’s a must try! One foodie shared: “The idea is kind of weird, but it's really tasty actually.”
Salt and Chocolate Milk
While this might sound like an unholy pairing, many agreed that this was a winning combination!
One foodie shared: “Salt and chocolate milk.. i was watching this tv series called Modern Family, i was so curious! I even asked my husband if he knows, he said it sounds disgusting. I gave it a try. It taste sooo good. He doesn’t like it though but i like it haha i’ve read it makes the sweetness from the chocolate milk pop!”
Another agreed sharing: “Salt and chocolate is the most amazing combination... I’m not a dark chocolate person but sprinkle sea salt on it and I’m THERE FOR IT.”
