Make us feel ill with your favourite weird food combos
We’re almost afraid to ask but…

LAST WEEK, SOME of you exposed us in this comments section to your taste for strange snack food combinations.

We asked whether you agreed with this lark of pouring Maltesers or Minstrels into a bucket of popcorn at the cinema. That was bad enough.

As was this collection of food madness from around the interweb.

Then you began to reveal some of your more illicit munchies…

From @Barbara Crabtree:

Cinemas need to start offering pumps of nutella on your popcorn, the same way they do with butter. Popcorn with nutella is the food of the Gods.

From @Marius Dunesto:

Can we show some love for popcorn dipped into a whipped ice cream cone! OR chips dipped into an ice cream cone! OR….the spectacular…popcorn AND chips dipped into your ice cream cone. Pure heaven.

From @Karen Gillen:

Can’t believe I’m about to admit this…. but Mc Fries in Mc Caramel Sundae >.> My brain knows its wrong but my taste buds think its sooooooooo right.
Tis no wonder I’m mad for anything with salted caramel!

From @Sharon O’Brien (who swore it wasn’t a pregnancy craving):

I have only recently discovered this combination..could have been that i was starving but they were lovely….one of my personal favorites is chipsticks dipped into a yop!!! Yummy!! (Dont diss it until you try it)

From @Liam Byrne:

I going to tell you this, but you need to keep it quiet….
Dip an ice cream into your popcorn. It’s fantastic. *wink*

All this slightly stomach-churning stuff led one staffer to stand up in the middle of the office and make their own admission:

Peanut butter, banana and CHEESE sandwiches.

I feel like I need to defend myself here and point out that you put the peanut butter on a slice of bread, put cheese on top, TOAST IT and then add the banana for the last 60 seconds. I saw it on an episode of Why Don’t You one morning when I was 10 and unafraid of carbs.

Also, dipping KitKat fingers into cereal.

Yes, this is all from the same person.

Anyway, if you can beat that, we’d like to hear it in the comments below. Well, we’d sort of like to hear it. If only so we can avoid going to dinner with you.
