Humans do some pretty weird things when left to their own devices. Some of us watch Netflix for hours on end; others like doing strange things with food. Whatever floats your boat, folks.

Maybe you like snacking on toasted bread and ketchup, or perhaps you’re a frozen waffles and jelly type of gal or guy. In any case, bizarre food combos are meant to be shared. We’ve gathered some of the funkiest food duos, so give them a try (at your own risk, of course).

Popcorn and ketchup

Unconventional maybe, but popcorn and ketchup work amazingly together as a dynamic duo of deliciousness.

Bread and hot sauce

If you toast some Wonder Bread and dip it in hot sauce, it makes for a curious combination that might just tickle your fancy.

Bread, butter spread, brown sugar

This tasty and unusual combination of foods originated from fairy bread (bread, butter and sprinkles), a snack first constructed in 1920s Australia. Go figure.

Top Ramen and melted cheese

A good way to eat ramen — and the only way to eat ramen — is with cheese.

Water and cereal

It tastes practically the same as having cereal with milk. An added bonus: the negligible cost of water and cereal makes this duo perfect for struggling college students.

Frozen waffles and jelly

Honestly, frozen waffles are good on their own but are improved exponentially by the sweetness of grape jelly. Trust us, this one’s one of the best suggestions on this list.

Dry oatmeal and yogurt

This combo makes the yogurt taste like an oatmeal cookie. Need I say more? 

Cream cheese and banana bread

Banana bread is good. Cream cheese is good. Combine the two and you get a surprisingly delicious concoction.

Ketchup and anything

Ketchup is the panacea of foods. Put enough ketchup on something and it’s bound to taste good no matter how badly you burned it.

Pineapple and pizza

This entry isn’t serious. Putting pineapple on pizza is a terrible — perhaps an unforgivable — offense.

Sometimes you have to get adventurous with food to save money or keep life interesting. We at the Clog have shared our favorite bizarre treats to help keep your life (or at least your food) a little more riveting. We hope you enjoy — and remember to steer clear of any pineapple pizza.

Peace, love, Clog.
