What's Your Favorite Sweet And Savory Combination?

Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Salty-Sweet Combo?

I have a serious weakness for sweet-salty foods. One of my favorite ice cream treats as a kid involved saltine crackers, and the salted caramel ice cream at local sweet shop Bi-Rite Creamery is to die for. The sweet-savory deliciousness extends far beyond desserts to everything from fig pizza to watermelon and feta salad. What's your favorite dish that combines savory and sweet tastes?

Plain old Cadbury chocolate and plain salted crinkled potato crisps. Low class, but damn tasty.

This is going to sound weird, but a peanut butter and scrambled egg sandwich. It's awesome, and you can't mock it till you try it. Toasted bread, peanut butter melts on it, filled with scrambled eggs. Mmm.. now I'm hungry. Another one was bacon and peanut butter sandwiches, but I'm a veggie now, so no bacon. I've done it with fake bacon, it's similar. YUM.

I like sweet (a LOT), and I like salty, but they just shouldn't be combined. I guess I'm in the minority, lol

Oh man, I am missing this gene. I cant eat this combo together. I've tried!! It has to stay separate for me or my stomach starts to revolt. I'll have my cherry tarts and beef jerky on different days thank you.

Haagen Daaz (sp?) strawberry ice cream and Better Made plain potato chips. It happened by accident at my cousin's birthday. You know when you get a plate pf birthday cake and everything runs together? The chips were covered in ice cream and it was great. It's heaven.

Salted caramels. Otherwise, I can't think of anything, actually. I like my sweets and salts kept separate for the most part.

I don't eat it often, but I LOVE to dip pretzels in chocolate ice cream and eat them like that. Kind of like Chubby Hubby, but the pretzels are crispier.

All of the above and more! It's my fav kind of food - bleu cheese with any fruity spread is to die for though.

I love Junior Mints with popcorn at the movies! Pop in a few Junior Mints, then a handful of popcorn. Delightful!

Pig candy! (Bacon covered in brown sugar and baked until crispy.) A close second is a great aged white cheddar cheese on crackers topped with fig spread. Highly droolworthy.
