5 Totally Weird Chocolate Combos that Taste Awesome

Whether you're a frenzied fan or an occasional admirer, there's no denying that chocolate makes life a lot sweeter. But for those few (or everyone) who've sworn to discover all that chocolate has to offer, we found surprisingly awesome but unusual chocolate pairings.


Warning: Some of them are downright crazy. 


1. Bacon + Chocolate

Primarily American in its origin, but loved by chocolate enthusiasts everywhere, this is a combination we came across more often than we'd like to admit. While the pairing seems a tad repulsive at first, not to mention insulting to lovers of both bacon and the confection, the crisp, smoky, and salty flavour of fried bacon couples well with the creamy sweetness of chocolate.

2. Uncle Chips + Chocolate 

If you've ever been personally victimised by 3am hunger pangs, proceed to rummage through your fridge to devour a bar of chocolate with leftover chips. This combo apparently advocates putting together some melted chocolate with a bowl of classic Uncle Chips, and just munching away. The savoury, salty taste sprinkled with mild spices and masala, makes for an even better snack when paired with the sweet confection.

3. Jalapeno + Chocolate 

The same effect of the savoury and sweet amalgamation applies here, although this one's meant for those who prefer fire in their food. In this strange pair, the peppery spice in the jalapeno wonderfully heats up your tongue, while the sweetness of the melted chocolate is quick to soothe it, thus rousing all your flavour preferences all at once.

4. Watermelon + Chocolate 

Fruits go well with chocolate, and that's a commonly acknowledged fact. But there are some specific kinds that have been paired with chocolate all these years, such as strawberries and bananas. Within this realm, watermelon appeared like an unlikely candidate. And yet a piece of watermelon dunked in liquid chocolate, and lightly sprinkled with some sea salt, works as a brilliant craving-indulgent tidbit.

5. Avocado + Chocolate 

Yeah, we couldn't see how this works either, but the skyrocketing popularity of this odd combo says otherwise. So, this is just one of those "if you don't try, you'll never find out" recommendations.
