About This Quiz

You've probably heard someone say that two things go together like bread and butter, or maybe bacon and eggs. There are tons of timeless food pairs that people all over the world have enjoyed for decades.

And then there are some that are ... not as timeless. For example, could you ever imagine bacon and peanut butter? Believe it or not, this duo combined with sliced banana, then tossed onto bread and fried was a favorite of the late Elvis Presley. In fact, legend has it that The King once chartered a private plane in the middle of the night just to satisfy a late-night craving for a sandwich based on this combination.

What about replacing your morning bowl of cereal and milk with milk and popcorn? You may gasp, but the famous writer Laura Ingalls Wilder actually made reference to this combination in one of her Little House on the Prairie books, and many people swear that popcorn is better than any conventional cereal.

The point is, different people have different tastes in food pairings. And within those pairings, most of us prefer one element slightly more than the other, even if they are ideal when put together. This choice says a lot about who we are as people. Just give us your preference between the two foods listed in each of these questions, and we'll evaluate your character. Dig in!
