Sweet n Salty

I don't know about you but when I eat something sweet, I have to follow with something salty, then back to sweet again. This can keep going until I gulp some water or brush my teeth.

I remember Mom used to make these cheesy Ritz snacks that consist of sharp cheese on a Ritz cracker, topped with a marshallow then toasted. It became a family favorite. I even got my husband and daughter hooked on these things. I've never known anyone to try these and not like them. 


Here is a list of other sweet and salty snacks that remarkably go well together.

  • Chocolate covered pretzels.
  • Maple syrup on country ham.
  • Peanut butter and marshmallow cream on toast.
  • Cheese puffs dipped in marshmallow cream.
  • Salt on apples.
  • Chocolate covered bacon.
  • Bacon sprinkles on cupcakes.
  • Pretzels dipped in peanut butter.
  • Candy corn and peanuts. 
What are some other odd combinations you found that go great together? Is it sweet n salty you like? Hot and sour? Let me know. This could be interesting.

  1. I like to mostly keep my sweet and savoury separate. Lettuce and sugar goes well together though. And tomatoes.

  7. I love salt on apples, too. And...melons. And...chocolate covered pretzels. I have a recipe called Crack Bark that is made with pretzels, pouring a melted chocolate mixture over them and sprinkling sea salt over top. Oooh it's so good and addictive!
