When it comes to food, every ingredient has its own identity in terms of texture and taste. While certain food items work well together, there a few that are some less obvious and strange sounding combinations that we never think of even trying. But, food is all about experimentation and exploration. Today, we are going to tell you about such 10 weird food combinations that are actually mouth-watering. Are you ready to explore?
2. Mango and Chilli Powder
If you are done with shakes and freakshakes, add a twist to the pulpy delight and sprinkle some chilli powder to balance the sweetness. Try this combo for curries and cocktails.
3. Olive Oil and Ice Cream
Now that olive oil has become an integral part of daily meals, why don’t you add it to your desserts too? Well, if you don’t know olive oil gelato is actually a popular flavor in Italy.
4. Coca-Cola and Chicken
If chicken and wine can be exotic, why not Coca-Cola and chicken? Give it a try and trust us, the soda content gives the chicken a sweet and syrupy flavor. Yummm!

Sounds weird? For a change, use the combo to make healthy mousse or pudding. Imagine the blend of healthy fats of avocado and creamy base of chocolate, got tempted?
