Things are about to get weird.

Like french fries with your milkshake? Or ketchup on your eggs? Then you're still pretty average on the crazy food scale.

All over the internet, people swear by unexpected food pairings that you'd probably never dream of trying. But as it turns out, some of the strangest flavor combinations happen to be the most delicious. If you're willing to put your taste buds to the test, you might come out of this list with a new favorite flavor combo.

Pringles and Whipped Cream

Just add a dollop of whipped cream right on top of your chip and take a bite. The sweetness pairs with the crunchy texture of the chip to taste almost like a crisp waffle cone with melted ice cream.

Cereal and Orange Juice

While milk may be the gold standard, many swear the orange juice and cereal pairing hits the spot in desperate late-night snacking situations. Orange juice pairs well with lighter-sugar cereals, bringing a ton of bright flavor and much-needed liquid. 

Coca-Cola and Peanuts

This hack is no revelation to Southerners. Drop a handful of salty peanuts right into a Coca-Cola bottle, and you'll create the perfect fizzy, salty-sweet sip. The longer the peanuts stay in, the longer they'll soak up the sweet cola flavor to make their own tasty snack.

Tuna Salad and Fruit Punch

You might never expect the strong flavor of tuna to adapt perfectly to a fruity beverage, but trust us, it works. The sweetness and acidity of the fruit punch tones down the overpowering salty and "fishy" notes while bringing maximum flavor to a standard tuna salad concoction. 

Cheese Quesadilla and Bananas

If you love a fruit and cheese combo, this is one you've got to try. Layer some thinly sliced bananas into your quesadilla as it cooks, before folding. The slight hint of sweetness gives the quesadilla tropical flair and a ton of flavor. 

Apples with Salt and Pepper

If you've tried apples with peanut butter, you know how well apples and salt pair together. Throw in pepper for a hint of spice, and you've got yourself an upgraded afternoon snack. 

Vanilla Ice Cream and Soy Sauce

Salty-sweet is taken to the extreme with this unexpected dessert. The vanilla and soy flavors play off each other nicely, while the cool creaminess of the ice cream cuts through the acidity of the sauce.

Orange Juice and Oreos

Milk's favorite cookie? Not anymore. A dip in orange juice creates an unexpected orange-chocolate pairing that tastes amazing, while taking the creme-filled cookie to its ideal level of softness.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos and Marshmallows

Whipped into the form of hot cheetos crispy treats, this flavor combination is killer. Cheetos bring the crunch and heat while sweet and sticky marshmallows make things a little bit more mellow. But beware, these things are HOT.

Pizza with Nutella and M&Ms

Chocolate-cheese lovers, this ones for you. A drizzle of Nutella softens over the warmth of a fresh cheese pizza, melding into the perfect bite of salty, sweet, rich decadence. Throw in some mini M&Ms for an unexpected crunch, and you've met the perfect union of dinner and dessert.

Now, who's brave enough to try them with me?
