Snack Food Combinations that will Blow Your Mind

Snack Food Combinations that will Blow Your Mind

Don't knock it till you try it.


We've all had some pretty strange cravings or eaten some questionable combinations of food, but these combos take it to the next level. You may shake your head and wrinkle your nose, but the truth is you'll never know if you like it until you try it. Let me introduce you to some combos that will leave you stunned, startled, or maybe just sickened.

Fries with Honey

Kind of salty I've never tried this before.

Now I've been known to dip my fries in anything from ranch dressing to ketchup, but I can't say I've thought about honey. As it turns out, the honey coats the fries in a sweet glaze and the fries themselves provide that saltiness that we tend to often crave.

Doritos and Hummus

This just in: Humitos.

The other day I was sitting in the library, working on a paper and I hear the familiar crunch of a Dorito. When I casually glance over to affirm by predictions, I notice that the owner of the Doritos also had a tub of hummus as well. My first reaction was disgust but I soon realized that since hummus has a somewhat subdued flavor, the Doritos provide a way to spice them up. I haven't worked up the guts to give this a go, but I hope you will.

Waffles with Cream Cheese

I think you'll like this a waffle lot.

This one might not seem very strange at all to you but for me it was mind-blowing. Since I don't particularly enjoy syrup, and butter tends to run a bit bland, applying your favorite cream cheese flavor on a waffle can take your waffle to the next level. Add some strawberries, oranges, or bananas and you're all set for a sweet breakfast.

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Everything I avo wanted.

This may not be as much of a combination as it is a recipe, but I assure you, it's just as delicious. Chocolate avocado pudding is made of avocados, chocolate milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, salt, honey, and bittersweet chocolate. It's both vegan and gluten-free while being a healthy alternative to store bought pudding with added sugars and artificial sweeteners. If you're not in love with avocados, don't sweat it, the avocados are there for pure texture and health benefits only.

Apples with Salt and Pepper

The new apple of my eye.

I've never really been a fan of eating my fruits plain, but I had never considered using seasoning, beyond the typical apples dipped in caramel and Nutella. If you're looking to cut down on the sugars and the calories, try seasoning your apple slices with salt and pepper and baking them in the oven for a few minutes. While consuming your fruits for the day you'll also being satisfying your salt craving.

Vanilla Ice Cream with Soy Sauce

I scream you scream, we all scream at this combo.

I know what you're thinking about this one, but hear me out. Adding soy sauce to your plain dish of vanilla yogurt is like creating the perfect sweet and salty dessert. Consider chocolate covered pretzels, the chocolate provides satisfaction for your sweet tooth and the pretzel provides a colorful and salty complement. Once you get past the appearance, I guarantee you'll never go back to your chocolate syrup.

Frosted Flakes and Cheese

They're grrrrrrrrrrrrross?


One of my favorite snacks of all time is shredded cheddar cheese melted on top of saltine crackers but on top of my cereal? At first, I said no thank you, but then I got to thinking about it. The frosted flakes serve as a sweeter alternative to the typical tortilla chip and become pliable and almost soggy in the process. I don't know that I'd recommend adding salsa or guacamole but this couldn't be the worst thing, could it?

Oreo Cookies Dipped in Orange Juice

We all know the familiar Oreo and milk situation all too well, I say its time to change it up. Oreos dipped in orange juice balance the creamy chocolate piece of heaven with a tangy, fruity punch. We have chocolate covered strawberries and bananas, so why shouldn't we treat Oreos the same?

I hope that I've succeeded in convincing you to try at least one of these combinations, or at least have moved you in the right direction. If I can sacrifice my Doritos to hummus then you can add substitute your ketchup for honey on your fries- honey.

7 Things I Wish I Knew BEFORE Moving Into My First Apartment

I've learned quite a few valuable lessons in my first year on my own.


Last Thanksgiving, I moved out of my childhood home and into my very first apartment. In the just over a year of "adulting," I've learned that I really had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Here are a few things I wish someone had told me beforehand...

1. Bill collectors don't mess around!

If you're as much as a few hours late on paying a bill, expect a letter dropped in the mail and/or an e-mail in your inbox notifying you about it. Stay ahead by keeping a calendar, and write in each bill's due date. Then, place the calendar where you will see it every day — either hang it on your fridge or leave it on your kitchen counter if it's a notebook calendar like the one I have.

If you are looking at the calendar several times a day — even if you are not sitting there and studying it — it becomes less likely that you will miss due dates.

2. The first of each month creeps up QUICKLY

Sometimes it will feel like you JUST paid your rent when it is already due again. Be prepared by having at least a few months' worth of rent saved up.

This way, you will never be late on rent, even if the first of the month catches you off guard (again).

3. It requires constant effort to keep everything in the house stocked

It isn't easy keeping track of everything from toilet paper and toothpaste to trash bags and laundry detergent. And their prices add up quickly! The best way I've found so far to try and not run out of everything I need is by keeping a grocery list and pen on my kitchen counter, right next to my trusty calendar.

When I notice I'm running low on something, such as dishwasher pods, I simply write it on the list. Then, when the list gets long enough, I bring it with me to Wal-Mart and try and get everything I need in one trip.

4. Cleaning is no walk in the park either. 

I am hereby acknowledging my privilege and saying I totally took for granted when my mom, and then the maintenance crew in my college dorm, cleaned my bathroom for me. In order for things not to get out of hand, I keep a handwritten list of everything in my apartment that needs cleaning. And when I clean one thing, I check it off.

Once every item on the list has a checkmark, I re-write a new list for next time. This way, I don't get overwhelmed by trying to clean every single thing in my house all in one day. Instead, I do it little by little when I have the time.

Sure, I'll have a cleaning day now and again, but more often than not I perform one cleaning task a day to keep up with it without tiring myself out after work.

5. You most likely won't get your security deposit back in full

When I first paid my security deposit, I thought to myself, "for sure I will get that back in full whenever I move out." But, I learned that life happens. I've dropped heavy objects and scratched up the wall. I've accidentally burned a spot onto my kitchen table with a burning hot bowl.

I've spilled things onto the carpet that I was unable to get out, even with carpet cleaner. I've also broken things by accident, such as my refrigerator door handle, and the pulley attached to my ceiling fan. I've come to terms with the fact that I won't be getting my security deposit back in full, and that's OK.

That is what it's there for, after all.

6. Coasters are not a want, but a need

When I was growing up, I thought people who insisted you use coasters when you visited their house were annoying. But now I understand. I harass my friends when they come over to always use a coaster. It prevents rings from appearing on the tabletops, which falls under the category of that security deposit we were chatting about earlier.

I recommend buying a pretty set of coasters from a shop like Marshalls. That way, the coasters are nice-looking, and they all match.

7. Housekeeping is a big responsibility

You can't just pick up and LEAVE if you want like you could with your parents. If you want to go on vacation, you still have to pay your bills. You also need to find someone to come care for your pets, bring in your mail, etc.

You are also responsible for turning off your heating/air conditioning when you leave and locking up your doors and windows. You may also be required to have renter's insurance, in the event any damage or break-in happens to your home.

Although housekeeping is a bigger responsibility than I anticipated, I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world. I love having my own apartment, despite the expenses and stresses associated with it. It's the best decision I ever made, and not nearly as frightening as I worked myself up to be.

It is a wonderful journey I know you will do just fine on.

5 Reasons The Mountains Are Better Than The Beach

Sorry I said it, but it's true


1. There's more to do

at the beach, there are only a few things to do, and they all pretty much come down to just relaxing, and while this can be, and is great, the mountains give you many more options when it comes to daily activities

2. It is not just seasonal

The beach is great... but only in the summer. The mountains are amazing year-round and are not dependent on the the weather. Whether it's mountain biking, hiking, skiing, climbing, kayaking, etc., you can always find something to do, no matter the weather or season.

3. It is an escape from the city

the mountains are less crowded, slower-paced and simply a new scene. You no longer have to worry about beating the lines and finding a good spot on the beach

4. You'll connect more with nature

being in the woods with nature is simply a feeling that can't be replicated anywhere else

5. Still, have beaches

They'll be lake-beaches, but the mountains still have them, giving you, as Miley Cyrus once said, "the best of both worlds".
