30 Day Challenge 10

Day 10
What are the weirdest foods or food combinations that you love?

While I’m not looking for responses like “I like mushrooms” or “I adore oysters,” “weird” is subjective. What’s dandy to one may be bizarre to another. I’m among the pickiest eaters I know (I think the Thriller is *the* pickiest), but when I latch onto something, it doesn’t matter how strange it sounds, as long as it tastes yummy.

I love:

  1. Fluffernutters
  2. “Picklebeets”
  3. Frosting, all by itself (I’m fond of saying that the cake part is just an obligatory conveyance)
  4. Cherry pie filling, right out of the can
  5. Graham crackers dipped in raspberry Kool-Aid (but be careful: you have to pull them out of the drink at just the right time, or they’ll disintegrate)

I know all you non-picky eaters have even stranger tastes. Let’s see ’em. Ick.

Eating frosting all by itself is weird??? I thought that was normal!! OK here are mine. I like cold spaghettios from the can. Same for cold pizza and spaghetti or macaroni. Now I have never eaten a whole can of spaghettios — just a taste or two. Then I warm it up. I suppose I could probably eat the whole can if it were deemed necessary. Celery and peanut butter. Potato chips or french fries dipped in ice cream. We used to eat graham crackers in milk sprinkled with sugar for breakfast when I was a kid. Here in The… Read more »

Mom and I like peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. We don’t eat them often but we both had one this week. She grew up eating them and I think she also puts regular butter on the sandwich as well? Anyhoo, they are yummy! Ya just gotta use the right kind of pickles (not dill) and creamy PB. :)

Whenever I’m doing some long-distance driving, I have to have ‘road food’, which for me is Nacho Cheese Doritos and chocolate milk. Don’t consume either on any other occasion.

I adore cookie dough; my favorite is Washington Cookie dough, which is oatmeal and chocolate chips. Hard to keep my fingers outta that one.

Celery and peanut butter are good – that’s the only way you’ll get me to eat celery. I’m a texture-eater and don’t like things that are stringy or mushy (like tomatoes or squash).

I am NOT a picky eater at all. I’ll eat anything – not that I like everything – but I was raised to eat everything. However I really can’t think of any weird foods or food combinations that I eat. Especially not any that I eat on a regular basis. My grandmother did introduce me to peanut butter and sandwich spread sandwiches. That might not be for everyone. I do have one strange food habit though that I share with my father. We didn’t even realize it until my mother pointed it out to us one day. When we eat… Read more »

Sandwich spread as in an actual brand name sold by Kraft – it’s like Miracle Whip but also has pickle relish in it. Miracle Whip would work also!

I got nuthin’ on this one… unless you call putting ketchup on eggs a strange combo. But that’s a staple for midwesterners, isn’t it? LOL

Not a whole lot I can think of…

–Saltine crackers topped with a little butter — which my grandma thinks is a great afternoon snack.

My in-laws put cheese on top of apple pie. I refuse to be party to the defiling of said pastry, so I don’t make apple pie for them any more.

Norwalk High School used to feature “Harvard beets” regularly on their lunch menus. I don’t remember anyone ever eating the things!
