We’ve all got that weird friend who mixes two irreconcilable ingredients together and has the audacity to call it ‘delicious’.

Personally, I’ve seen people stick an orange slice between two Pringles and even sprinkle an Oxo cube on cereal.

But a new study has shown that people who dare to deviate from the classic collocations of British cuisine might not be in the minority after all.

A survey performed by Ocado and Marks and Spencer has found that eight in 10 Brits have a weird concoction they enjoy tucking into from time to time.

And now the full list has been published.

According to the survey, the list of top weird food combos is as follows. Could you get on board with some of these?

When it comes to scran, I suppose it’s a case of whatever your floats your boat.

But hot dogs and jam? Surely not.
