These Are Britain’s Favorite Bizarre Food Combinations That Are Shock For The Rest Of The World
One of the perks of adulthood is the ability to eat whatever you want, whenever you want. Kids all throughout the world yearn for the day when they can eat dessert first or have cereal for dinner. However, it appears that some of us have gone a little too far with some truly strange food combinations. Sure, there are debates over whether Marmite or sprouts are devilish foods, but what about fish fingers with custard or hot dogs with jam?
It may sound like something out of an Alice in Wonderland tea party, but a new survey has found the oddest culinary pairings that Brits enjoy.
The results of a study of 2,000 respondents included mayonnaise on toast, spaghetti sandwiches, and butter on Weetabix.

Fish fingers and custard have become an unsavory culinary combo as a result of the eleventh Doctor's favorite cuisine being mentioned in Dr. Who.
Ocado conducted the study in collaboration with Niki Segnit, a food flavor specialist and author of The Flavour Thesaurus. She's also revealed some of her favorite strange pairings.
Niki said: “Everyone knows the traditional food combinations like bangers and mash, or fish with chips, but have you ever tried coffee and orange, or spinach and strawberry? There are many wonderful matches to be discovered, and you don’t need a PhD in molecular gastronomy to start experimenting. Interesting and unusual flavor matches can be made with common store-cupboard ingredients, like cheese and marmalade, or chocolate and aubergine.”
