The Pick: Blue raspberry jello cookies with white chocolate chips
Submitted by: Isis Coyle, Media Manager
Staff Comment: I don't know if this counts as a weird combination, but I made blue raspberry jello cookies with white chocolate chips last year for Christmas. It's an unusual combination but it was one of the best things I've ever made.
The Pick: Fries and frosty
Submitted by: Emma Innes, News Editor
Staff Comment: I often enjoy dipping my fries in a Wendy's frosty. If fries are not available because I have leftover frosty then potato chips are also good. The sweet and savory is a satisfying combination, and I enjoy it with both the vanilla and chocolate frosty flavors.
The Pick: Tajin on pickles
Submitted by: Bella Montalvo, Editor-In-Chief
Staff Comment: Putting Tajin on pickles is absolutely insane and delicious. Perfect for every season. You can’t go wrong with sour and salty!
The Pick: Pineapple and clam chowder
Submitted by: Monte Remer, Lifestyles Editor
Staff Comment: Pieces of pineapple dipped in clam chowder like chip in dip.
The Pick: Raspberry jam, soy sauce and chili oil
Submitted by: Eleanor Hu, Managing Editor
Staff Comment: It’s controversial—I’m a big fan of combining raspberry jam, soy sauce, and chili oil into a sauce that sounds like an abomination but is actually delicious.
The Pick: Popcorn with nacho cheese and pickled jalapenos
Submitted by: Gia Patel, Staff Writer
Staff Comment: When I'm at the movies, I eat popcorn with the nacho cheese and pickled jalapenos you can get there. It's soooo delish.
The Pick: White bread with margarine, grape jelly and dill pickle chips
Submitted by: Sarah Schneider, Advisor
Staff Comment: My grandma ate this and I still find it comforting: spread onto cheapest possible bleached white bread the cheapest margarine, then a thin layer of generic plain grape jelly and top with dill pickle chips.
The Pick: Nice normal food
Submitted by: Skeet Starr, Sports Editor
Staff Comment: None because I'm a nice normal person who eats nice normal food and fears God.
The Pick: Diluting drinks with water
Submitted by: Bjorn Domst, Copy Editor
Staff Comment: This isn’t exactly a food, but when I’m finished with a glass of a particular drink (let’s do milk, just for the extra weirdness to some people), I will refill my glass with water instead of rinsing it, saving the diluted remains of what I was drinking and creating a cloudy mixture that doesn’t quite taste like water or the original drink anymore. Every drop counts.
