Surprising Flavor Combinations

We know, these flavor combinations are weird, but don’t knock them till you try them!

Peanut & Meat

Fans of Thai food probably already know and love this flavor combination, but in case you haven’t tried it, peanut sauce is amazing with all kinds of meats. Satay (skewered grilled meat usually served with peanut sauce) is an awesome introduction to this unique mix of juicy, savory goodness with the distinct flavor of peanuts. Give it a try!

Fruit & Spice

Spiced fruits are extremely popular in Mexico and anywhere with a Mexican population, and for good reason. If you have never tried fruits with chili powder, you may not think this combination is appetizing, but trust us when we say that the fruity freshness mixed with the kick of spice from the chili is absolutely mindblowing. It’s also very easy to make at home as all you need is fresh fruit and chili powder.

Avocado & Chocolate

Avocado is traditionally associated with savory dishes, but did you know that it tastes amazing with chocolate? This is primarily because of its rich, creamy texture, which lends itself well to foods like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream. Despite what you may think, the natural flavor of the avocado doesn’t overpower the chocolate at all. They work together in perfect harmony!

Cheese & Jam

Here in the USA, we often reserve cheese for either savory dishes or cream cheese, but we should really be eating it with jam more often. Soft, creamy cheeses like brie taste heavenly when piled on a crunchy cracker and topped with a flavorful jam. We recommend either regular fruit jams or the lesser known spicy chili jelly.

French Fries & Ice Cream

People who dip their french fries in their milkshakes at restaurants sometimes get weird looks, but we understand you. Many think that crunchy and salty fries would be gross when combined with sweet and creamy ice cream when they are actually an awesome combination, just like chocolate covered pretzels.
