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.

Deadlines Are Not Important

The Deadlines Of Life Do Not Mean As Much As You Think


Deadlines are not important; the deadlines for work, school, and things related to that, those are important. Life's deadlines are not important. Society tells us that we must be married, have the perfect job, and have children by a certain age. A lot of the times we end up believing that if we do not do certain things by a certain time, we have failed or we are not doing as good as everyone else. The truth is, society's and life's deadlines are crap. There is no specific time to be married by, no specific time to have your perfect job by, and no specific time to have children by. These things should not be accomplished until you are ready and capable to accomplish them; this means that if you are not 50 until you have your perfect job, you are not 30 until you are married and you are not 40 until you have children, that is okay. There is nothing wrong with waiting, experiencing life, growing in who you are, and doing what you need to do first. A lot of people do not have their perfect job until later in life because if we are all honest here, that is one of the hardest things to figure out and hardest decisions to make. People stress so much because they have not met these certain deadlines of life that they have been told their entire lives they need to meet by a certain time. So often, the important things like a job, a marriage, and children are rushed and people end up miserable. There is no sense in rushing if you are not ready for it yet. When it comes to finding the perfect job for you, look around, find your interests, and figure out what you can spend years of your life doing; take your time and be patient. When it comes to marriage and having children, do not rush it, it is one of the worst things to rush; do it in the time frame you want to and make sure it is what you want. Take a deep breathe and stop freaking out; you have plenty of time. Instead of going by society's and life's deadlines, go by your own and base that off of your capabilities and your wants.

You Know You're From Trumbull, CT When...

The best memories are made in this boring, little, Connecticut town.


1. The majority of places you will consider to eat at are in Fairfield or Westport... Colony, Shake Shack, Country Cow, Playa Bowls, BarTaco

2. But if you find yourself too lazy to get on 95 for food, Panchero's is the go-to... never Chipotle. If it is past midnight, the choice always comes down to the McDonalds in Monroe, where you are almost guaranteed to see a group of people you know, or Merritt Canteen.

3. Once you got your license, your Friday night plans consisted of picking up friends, driving up and down Main Street, and, somehow, always finding yourself at the THS parking lot seeing who's car is there because there is nothing better to do.

4. In the Fall, you couldn't wait for Friday so that after school you and half of your grade could walk to Plasko's Farm for ice cream and apple cider donuts... and hope you could get them before the owners would yell at you to leave. (This one only applies to Hillcrest Middle School kids, AKA the inferior middle school in town).

5. You couldn't wait to be a senior so you could officially lead the BLACK HOLE at football games... if you were even willing to go in the cold.

6. You looked forward to the annual Senior Scav, the last week of summer before your senior year where a list of tasks is passed down by the recently graduated class... the official kickoff to senior year.

7. You pass by Country Club Rd. and get flashbacks from the worst Cross Country practices ever. Driving up Daniels Farm Rd. in the Fall and Spring, you are conditioned to yell "hi" out the window to your friends at practice.

8. You knew someone who worked at Gene's gas station... and found yourself spending more time there on the weekends than you would like to admit.

9. You are convinced Melon-heads are real after frequenting Velvet St. to see the abandoned insane asylum with your friends, IF you didn't want to drive all the way up to Fairfield Hills in Newtown.

10. You have had/have been to at least one middle school birthday party at the Trumbull Marriott.

11. You know that the 25mph speed limit on Whitney Ave. is way too slow... and can't help but hit a little air going down the huge hill at the top.

12. The guy at Towne likely knows your name.

13. You never find yourself turning right out of THS... that side of town is irrelevant for those who do not live there.

14. You know to avoid the Merrit Parkway from 4:00-7:00pm at all costs.

15. You know more than you would like to about people you aren't even friends with... in a town so small, things get around very quick.

16. Going shopping really means going to Target, or any store in the mall, for the millionth time that week.

17. The marching band was the best in the state and you would see them practicing, literally, every time you drove by THS.

19. Depending on the side of town you lived, you spent a lot of time at Five Pennies Park or Indian Ledge Park.

20. You would say you couldn't wait to leave, but when you got to college, you find yourself excited to come back to your hometown so you can reminisce on old traditions and make new memories.
