...some of which I now need to try

A story in today’s Irish Star caught my eye when it stated that a child in the UK brought a pork pie and a can of cider for his lunch in school. There’s giving children extra responsibility and then there’s forgetting to check that they’ve actually been responsible (and what kid wouldn’t try to push the boundaries, given half the chance?!)

There are some WEIRD food combinations out there and variety is the spice of life, they say. (Still, reader discretion is advised; some of these are grizzly.)

  • “I used to bring dry cereal for lunch in school Paula, I hated sandwiches and still I hate how the bread always ends up getting stuck on the roof of my mouth. I was called Cornflake for 6 years in school!”

 

  • “You’re not allowed to bring any treat into a lot of schools these days Paula... I’d be so disappointed to be a child nowadays, raisins or plain rice cracker as a snack sounds sad. I’d rather have a Wagonwheel!”

 

  • “Paula. My brother used to eat bowls of custard with mashed up toast in it!”

  • “Morning Paula, listening in from San Fran! Made a chip sambo for myself when I moved over here 6 years ago, and my American friends almost threw up. What’s not to love? Bread, butter, chips, salt and ketchup. They were repulsed!”

 

  • “Morning Paula. On the meal thing: liver beans and potatoes yum yum! I think my girlfriend is put out with it as she’s never around when I say I’m having that for dinner!” - Richie

 

  • “Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches! So delicious.”

 

  • “Paula salt and vinegar chip sticks on white bread with loads of mayo, no butter!”

 

  • “Good morning Paula. On a film before I saw someone eat a fried egg with ketchup, which looked disgusting. One day out of curiosity I tried it... It goes well!” - Vince

 

  • “Hi Paula, sausages and marmalade on toast, don't knock it until you've tried it!” - Betty

 

  • “Morning Paula. Back in my native Wigan the local delicacy is a pie in a bap also known as a Wigan Kebab absolutely delish!” - Danny in Laytown

  • “Hi Paula, I love chocolate and cheese sandwich – yum - but my husband thinks it’s disgusting and a weird combination!”

 

  • “Hi Paula, our granny used to give us toasted golden syrup sandwiches as s treat. Delish! Wonder why I have so many fillings?!” - Mark H

 

  • “Good morning Paula I went to school with a lad who, first thing in the morning, would eat a onion as like it was an apple and if he did not have an onion he would have cloves of garlic and would peel them and eat those! Nobody sat near him!” – Mick in Mayo

  • “Good morning Paula. I love a Walkers cheese and onion crisp and banana sambo. Don’t knock it till you try it! Have a great day!” - James

 

  • “Bourbon biscuits in between bread and butter. Used to have it as a child and loved it. Had one a few years back and by god was it manky. Don’t know what I'd been thinking. My neighbour used to give us sugar sandwiches too!”

 

  • “Marmite in all my sambos!”
