One user on Reddit warned everybody before he revealed his disgusting-yet-delicious food combination by expressing his love for tuna fish with macaroni and cheese. Based on the comments others directed towards him, not many people have heard of the combination.

Some combinations were just too disgusting for users. This food monstrosity, consisting of pouring orange juice instead of milk into a bowl of Cheerios cereal, easily crossed the line into bad taste for many on the site. In fact, one user went as far as writing a plea for justice to the moderators of the forum.

7. Peanut Butter & Pickle Sandwich

It seems peanut butter has no shortage of odd companions. This time around, it's pickles. While one person stated they like their peanut butter sandwiches with the bread and butter variety, another admitted they love dipping dill pickles straight into the P.B. jar.

8. Yogurt Mixed With Rice
