I got a Christmas package from a relative and it had some treats in it. I love (yes, WAY TOO MUCH) Christmas treats…cookies, fudge, anything chocolate, pretzels, blah blah blah! There isn’t much that I don’t find appetizing this time of year.
So, I was looking forward to one particular treat that appeared in my box – a homemade popcorn ball. I love popcorn and I don’t have popcorn balls all that often so I saved it for another day. It was wrapped in wax paper, but I knew what it was.
I opened it up this morning and seriously debated if I should eat it.
It had raisins in it.
Who puts raisins in popcorn balls?
Well, apparently the answer is, my aunt.
I am not a fan of raisins. Not at all. I like grapes, not raisins.
Just so we’re clear on what happened, I ate it. But it was…different. Can’t say I am particularly fond of that combo. I think we can safely say that popcorn and raisins don’t and shouldn’t belong together. I briefly debated whether I would eat the thing, but the popcorn got the better of me. I like popcorn!
What food combo/ingredient combo has surprised you in the past, good or bad?
