We asked people what their favorite and most unusual food pairings were. Things I NEVER want to try: cucumbers and ketchup. Things I'm not totally averse to: chili powder on ice cream.

Also, apparently ketchup on scrambled eggs is weird. I was under the impression this is perfectly normal. Share your favorite unusual food pairings in the Comments section at the bottom of the page!
