What are some of your favorite unexpected food combinations? Tell me about interesting things you have eaten that have blown your mind and made you think about a food in a different way. Or something that you’ve considered normal to you, but have had other people been surprised by.

A typical snack for me as a kid was really crusty bread dipped into condensed milk. I don’t know how typical it is in other cultures, but it’s one of my favorites. Even tearing up some crispy buttered toast and dipping it is good. But I didn’t realize that this was unusual until I had a roommate and she went nuts over it.

I have never had Columbian hot chocolate, but this combination of chocolate and cheese intrigues me. I think I need to go out and get some hunks of cheese for my chocolate soon.
