Flavor Anomaly Feast
Some of the best anomalies are found in one of our favorite things: food. Flavor combinations that go beyond traditional flavor profiles can be a pleasant surprise or a rude jolt to our taste buds. We typically abide by certain, undeniably superb food fusions: ketchup and fries, chocolate and berries, peanut butter and jelly. But what about peanut butter and…Sriracha? Or perhaps pineapple and moneteray jack cheese?
We challenged our studio to explore unusual flavor combinations and cooked up a flavor anomaly feast. From lavender habanero cake (check out our ICRAVE original recipe below!) to banana cheese pizza, we tasted and rated our snacks on a weird food spectrum. Between Good and Not Good, Weird and Not Weird, we collectively were surprised at the flavor combinations that worked. Our biggest takeaway: take a risk and pour that hot sauce on your dessert. It might delight your senses.
Our ICRAVE-tested-and-approved flavor combos:
- Banana + Pizza
- Frosty + French Fries
- Strawberry + Balsamic
- Beet + Chocolate
- Pineapple/strawberry + Monteray Jack Cheese
