Incompatable Food Triad Challenge

  • Share

This is a challenge to take three foods and pair a+b, a+c, b+c, which are all good together, but if you put a+b+c together, it's not good. Come on chowhounders, lets' rack our brains and come up with some great combo's! Click on the link below to read more about it.

I'm still thinking of my combo's. I'll post when I have one

  1. Bacon, chocolate and peanut butter. All 3 together sounds disgusting, at least to me, but any 2 together are classics.

      Bacon & Chocolate? Really? Guess I'll have to try it.

      1. re: jcattles

        Well, I confess I've never tried it. But apparently some people like it:

          I tried a chocolate at a small shop in Joseph, OR that had bacon in it. It was pretty good, a little smoky.

            Chocolate + bacon = http://slog.thestranger.com/2008/04/b...

      2. re: Bat Guano

        Ha, I would totally eat that! A peanut butter truffle with crisp bacon bits, dipped in dark chocolate, maybe a little fleur de sel on top - that's going on my 'to make' list.

        1. re: babette feasts

          Actually you're right, that doesn't sound too bad. I withdraw the suggestion.

      3. My friends and I played with this over the course of months, and I finally came up with

        Chocolate
        Blue cheese
        Jalepenos

        (There was once a great chowhound post about a dark chocolate cupcake filled with molten blue cheese that sounded great - I think the others are self-explanatory)

        1. I've been thinking about this question since it first got posted, and so far no relief. I'm thinking kimchi is a possible pillar for a triad though.

          1. re: moh

            My brain became fixated on the appalling combo of canned tuna & marshmallows and I have been unable to tear myself away from the horror of that!

            Kimchi has distinct possibilities. It would be fun to have a "classic" ingredient from three distinct culinary traditions!

              "canned tuna & marshmallows "
              Thanks for sharing *that* nightmare. Shudder. Now I can't get it out of my mind, and I, of course, am lunching on tuna salad on onion rye.

              That's so nasty.

          2. peanut butter, cranberry sauce, and turkey?

              maybe, but doesn't satay have pb? You could substitute turkey for chicken? Served with a cranberry chutney. that does sound good

            2. beer, strawberries, and chocolate?

              1. re: racer x

                stawberry shortcake with a chocolate and stout beer reduction?

              2. I got one!
                Tortillas, refried beans, and chocolate.
                No wait, beans and chocolate would be nasty. Never mind...

                  But lots of Mexican restaurants in the US serve mole poblano with refried beans.

                  1. re: racer x

                    Well hell, there goes that one too.
