Writer's Block: Acquired taste

What is your favorite weird food combination? Have your friends ever tried it or do you only eat it in private?

Pita and mayo. There's something about a pita filled with nothing but mayonnaise (real, reduce fat, or even Miracle Whip) that is just perfect, especially in the summer. Yum, yum, yum. Granted, it's one of those things I tend to create when I either just want a "snack" or when I don't have too much "real" food in the fridge. But yummy!

There are lots of other odd food combos I like, but they tend to me more common or they're a regional cuisine, i.e. they are perfectly "normal" in context. For example, pickled herring and beet salad is a traditional German dish. Also love ketchup and eggs. Milk and jello is another one. And of course salted licorice.
