There are many things in the world that when combined, seem a surprising match, like peanut butter and jam or Kim and Kanye, but when paired, these combinations click perfectly. Whilst very few things in this world can surprise and delight with ease, there are many food combinations that when matched with almost anything (almost!), create surprising flavour combinations that are delicious.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations, the experts in surprising but delightful flavour combinations, believe it’s the pairing of these unique flavour combinations that create some of the nation’s most widely-loved dishes. To celebrate the launch of their new range of carnival-inspired flavours, Marvellous Creations has named their favourite surprising but immensely appetising food pairings:

  • Vegemite and Avocado: Who would ever have thought that the unique, undeniably delicious tang of Australia’s most-loved breakfast spread, would be the ideal match for the creamy, fresh taste of Australian avocados. Slathered over toast, the combination of these two popular spreadables has given the nation a breakfast treat that rivals the age-old favourite of cheese and tomato
  • Bacon and Maple Syrup: Bacon and maple syrup is a combination that creates a flavour explosion in your mouth. With the crispy, succulence of the bacon and the sweet burst of maple syrup, this flavour combination marries breakfast and dessert in every mouthful
  • Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar: Balsamic vinegar is normally reserved for salads or Italian food, however paired with sweet, juicy strawberries, the flavour sensation created is rich and intense. Whilst the pairing of fruit and vinegar sounds more like a recipe for cleaning products, these two items paired together enhances the sweetness of the strawberries and delivers bags of flavour
  • Potato Chips and Bread: Sandwiches shouldn’t be crunchy unless they’re jam-packed full of fresh salad produce. However,  exchange your carrots for chips and sprinkle them between slices of bread,  and you have a surprisingly delicious sandwich full of crunch that is lip-smackingly salty
  • Chocolate and Cola: Two favourite sweet treats, matched together, equals every birthday party and trip to the carnival, all rolled into one delicious bite. The sweet, smooth texture of the chocolate, paired with the fizzy, tongue-tingling bite of Cola, creates an explosion of flavour in every mouthful
