..and what you may get hounded for.

I can't stand mint mixed with chocolate. It's just too much. Agata doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate, but enjoys them separately. She forever has a strike in my book for this.

What food combos do you guys not tolerate.

ps keep your goddamn nuts out of my brownies.

I don't like certain fruit candy with chocolate. I can't stand it. I don't like chocolate syrup on top of my strawberry ice cream. I don't like those jelly rings covered in chocolate. I do, however, like chocolate dipped fruit and those chocolate covered cherry candies with the cream filling with it. Frozen chocolate covered bananas are amazing. I'm fucking weird, I don't get it either... I guess it's more of the berry flavor with chocolate I don't like, and only if it's artificial.

Ak, I'm with you on keeping nuts out of my brownies.

I hate mint in ice cream but love chocolate and mint candies, like Junior Mints.

I am not a fan of ketchup or red sauces, like in spaghetti or on pizza. I dip my fries in mustard, than you very much.

I'm curious, has it always been this way? Ketchup is oh so sweet, and I have a few friends who share the same sentiment, but it baffles me because ketchup complements a lot of bland carbs and proteins.

Also I won't eat sour cream outside of tacos/burritos. It's got to be ice cold and if it's left out, I'd sooner throw the whole package away than deal with it.

Yep, always been this way. I used to dip potato chips in mustard as a kid. I've noticed people who really love ketchup don't care for mustard and vice versa.

I can eat ketchup sparingly on burgers and fries, but drowning things in ketchup is disgusting. Same for red sauces. Light on my pasta and I'll wipe it off pizza if it's too much.

I eat breadsticks without dipping in marinara too.

Oh and I will eat the fuck out of some tomatoes, so go figure.

Fruit in salads / savory things (mango salsa, pineapple pizza, etc)

Butter on things. I'm fine with it baked into things, but butter spread on things is just something I can't stand. I do not have the same aversion to margarine spreads in tubs, but I still won't use that most of the time.

I disagree with both of these things! haha!

But I totally agree that nuts have no place in Brownies, or really anything baked, like cookies or cakes unless they are chopped very fine. But the absolute worst is when people put nuts in Jello and fruit salads...

I disagree with this! Nuts in brownies add texture and depth. They create a complexity that ordinary brownies do not have. Maybe you'll be satisfied with that plain, uniformly textured brownie, much like you would be satisfied with a limerick or a pop song. True brownie aficionados feel the need to go past the surface and really experience the brownie - additions like nuts or chili powder improve our brownie consuming experience exponentially.

But that's just my opinion!

Adding to my don't-go-together list:

- ginger in anything sweet (bread, snaps, ale)

- sugar or milk/cream in tea

Nuts in brownies are a distraction. If you know how to make brownies or fudge you don't need nuts.

Ugh, finely chopped nuts ruin my DAY. Give me a big ol' walnut half in my cookie/brownie/whatever, not some sliver of microscopic peanut I don't see coming that's going to find it's way between my teeth or cut up the roof of my mouth.

Sorry, but no nuts in brownies means I can't have salted caramel pecan brownies.

I suppose it would also prohibit coffee and walnut blondies.

I can't not have these in my life.

Grapefruit and milk. I hated grapefruit most of my life because my mom used to feed it to us after a bowl of cereal.

Actually, anything with milk. BLECK.

Any kind of cucumbers in a falafel sandwich. Fuck off with that. Yech.

No pickles in falafel. Cucumbers maybe, as long as they don't dominate.

No olives or mushrooms on pizza for me. The olives add a weird texture and bitter flavor that ruins everything else, and plain mushrooms are taking up valuable pizza real estate that could be used for things like bacon (real, not Canadian, though that is pretty good with pineapple or a meat-death pizza).

DO NOT put ketchup on mashed potatoes, hash browns, or eggs.

It is not right.

THIS. Nuts are a texture that I need to be able to anticipate, and the flavor gets lost when it's too evenly distributed in a baked good. nothing ruins a brownie or bread more than microbes of nuts. It just makes the whole thing seem grainy and weird.


I will put salt on damn near everything but ketchup is too salty for me. fuck that shit, keep it off my plate.

I love cheese and I like crackers, but I'm not a fan of them together unless it's a spread or a really strong flavor that needs to be taken down a little to be palatable. crackers just destroy milder flavors and make a mess of the texture.
