    I was having tea with my friends family the other day, just a jacket potato so nothing fancy.
    To my utter amazement however, I couldn't believe it when all three of them left the skins on their potato.
    When I started eating my potato skin, my friend just looked at me with a "What the hell are you doing?" kind of look.
    I found it so strange that a whole family doesn't eat the skin! It's the best bit!

    Another friend admitted to putting tomato ketchup on literally everything, including Christmas dinner.

    Maybe my friends are just weird?
    The mind boggles...

    My ex used to put burger sauce on cheesy chips. It was wrong on too many levels. Part of me thinks he did it just to stop me from stealing a couple of chips. Most of me thinks it's because his tastebuds were messed up or he'd had too many Jaegerbombs.

    Either way, burger sauce is strictly for meat, else it's WRONG. JUST NO.

    I personally find putting gravy on chips just a bit bizarre. The more watery, the more bizarre.

    Now don't instantly neg me for this - I have reasoning. I love mash with gravy, so it's not potatoes and gravy I cannot fathom. It's the fact that chips are all about the crisp fried exterior, it's the fatty coating on the chips that give them the crisp outside and fluffy potato inside; the contrast makes them interesting and delicious. But when you douse them in gravy, they go soggy and mushy, rendering the concept of having chips moot.

    They kinda just become fatty potatoes again when doused in gravy, because you lose any crispness, a sludgy kind of semi-solid mashed tatties.

    I agree, although I think having a pot of gravy on the side to dip them in is lovely because they remain crisp

    I find it really upsetting watching someone eat a Kit Kat without splitting it in half...or someone eat a chocolate bar 'upside down'. A few weeks ago I saw my sister eat a chocolate Hobnob with the chocolate facing down...painful.

    Depends on what it is, its great for lunchtime at college but even better when theres a Chinese near the college which does chips, rice AND gravy or curry sauce for £2 delicious.

    Something nice to eat but not that often is chips cheese and gravy(normally chinese gravy) makes the cheese melt and is luvly

    I take it you don't like pears and stilton then? Or cranberry sauce and turkey? Or apple sauce and salty pork? Or bacon and maple syrup? Or salty peanuts in chocolate bars? Or lamb tagine? Or chocolate coated pretzels? Or prosciutto and cantaloupe melon? Or strawberrys with balsamic vinegar? or chinese five spice?


    Some of the best flavour combinations ever discovered mix sweet and savoury flavours together. This unnatural obsession with dividing flavours into sweet and savoury is a rather provincial british one.
    All of these combinations you have mentioned sound vile. I would probably be fighting the urge to throw up if I had any of them

    I don't get why people go for an Indian and don't order a starter. Some of the best Indian food around is stuff you'd have as a starter. Also, peshwaari naan. As an Indian myself...it's just wrong. It has to be savoury naan with your curry unless you're going to a fake Indian restaurant that does all sorts.

    I am not that fond of Indian food, prefer chiese but I love when people put cheese and chilli inside the naan so its like a giant toastie, shame all the ones around here put cheese on top so the naan dries out easily.

    I dont like curry too much as theres too much waste with the nice sauce

    Though in a resturant I prefer plain naan, only been to one once for a all youc an eat and just got loads of non indian dishes lol.

    french toast smothered in tomato sauce. ****ing disgusting. I love beetroot but i have to eat it seperately, it just annihilates everything on the plate with its purpleness, it's a nightmare. I also hate people who won't try something once, my 22 year old brother still refuses to try food :lol:

    Not so much a consumption thing, but I think it still applies:

    People that cook/bake in a dish and then don't at least put water in it in the sink, making it IMPOSSIBLE to clean.

    I eat peanut butter with all number of strange things; cheese, cucumber, pancakes, jam, marmite, chicken

    Oooh that looks intriguing, where can you get it from? I'm hoping not exclusively from the U.S. I've never seen it about here
    I'm a little late but I just wanted to say I also eat chicken with a peanut butter sauce! It's a thing in the Netherlands, you get these chicken brochette things and dip them in peanut sauce (saté saus ). It tastes amazing! It might be inspired from the Indonesian cuisine
