Reese’s Pieces Going Bananas?

As if you could draw a better banana character...

I'm sure you're wondering why there's a photo of a banana and a package of Reese's Pieces candies here. Well, in all honesty, I'm still wondering that myself. You see, I bought those Reese's Pieces the other day and something on the back of the package was quickly brought to my attention...

You know, for when you like your fruit with less healthy attributes

As part of their "possibilities" campaign, Reese's is apparently suggesting that we try new ways to eat their candies. You know, because eating them out of the bag like a normal human being is just too commonplace. So what's their brilliant idea? Add them as a delicious topping on ice cream? No. They want you to take the candies and combine them with a banana, or to be more exact, "Squish Reese's Pieces into a banana for a crazy change!" You know what? That really does sound like a "crazy change" if you ask me. So crazy that I just had to try it to see how cah-ray-zay it really was!

This is NOT what nature intended.

First off, squishing Reese's Pieces candies into a banana just feels wrong. When I was doing it, it was as if I could feel Mother Nature herself looking over my shoulder and shaking her head at me in disappointment. This is clearly not something that was ever intended to exist, and I fear I may have doomed the future of our planet by creating this abomination. But don't worry, I've suffered for my sinful scientific experiment, because I actually had to eat the thing. Well, I didn't have to, but I felt like it was my duty to erase the "crazy" Reese's Pieces Banana from existence. It was pretty awful. I love bananas. I love Reese's Pieces. Combine the two, and that love is quickly replaced with hate and confusion. The two just do not make sense, and the pieces have trouble sticking to the banana too. When they fall off, they just leave these orange, yellow and brown stains on the banana that look more like bruises. Bruises as if to say, "Shame on you, Roger! Look what you did! You HURT the banana!"

Oh sure, they try making up for it by giving you another one of their "possibilities" to have fun with, but after hurting that banana, I really wasn't in the mood to "make a picture" with the candies...


My heart just wasn't in it after I desecrated that banana.

Survey #1: Do you think the Reese's Pieces Banana looks appetizing in any way?

Survey #2: What are some other bizarre food combinations you've had? (and in case you're wondering, no, Chocolate Spaghetti doesn't count as an answer.)

Well, my friends and I are big fans of UHF, so on at least two occasions we've made up twinkie wiener sandwiches. I think they're better without the milk, but opinions vary.

Honestly, I think an M&M banana would have been a better idea. Maybe a Reeses Pieces pancake?

I had cookies where the main ingredient was sour cream. I thought that was pretty odd.


ColdFusion (Guest) on 07/16/2008 6:00 pm

It.. it looks like a banana with a horrible horrible disease... :O

As a lifelong Weird Al fan, I've always wanted to try a Jelly Bean and pickle sandwich. Never had the balls to do it though...

I like bananas dipped in chocolate, and banana coated with peanut butter might be alright, but chocolate and peanut butter with a banana?


Misty (Guest) on 07/16/2008 6:33 pm

Sounds to me like a ploy to trick kids into eating healthy foods. Not that I'm gullible enough, mind you.

The Reese's Pieces/Banana hybrid you just created looks OK in my opinion. It is not something I would pass if offered.

When I was a kid I remember that a lot of my friends on the school bus used to say how much they were waiting until after dinner to have a Chocobanana as a treat. Sure, you may think that now all the world has something against this yellow fruit for making it the subject of many experiments. I never ate the thing, buy everyone claimed it was awesome. As you may guess, it has to do with chocolate and bananas, but the recipe seems to be (if they still exist) a frozen banana on a stick dipped in chocolate.

pepperoni and jelly sandwich. sounds horrible. tastes awesome. and if you fill half a glass with gummi bears and the rest with skim milk, you get a sweet milk thing going on. almost like you get when you finish a fruity cereal. and if you mix BBQ sauce and ranch dressing just right you got the perfect burger condiment.

but never EVER eat a bologna, banana, ketchup, chocolate sauce sandwich.


AIF (Guest) on 07/16/2008 7:52 pm

I'm a vegan, so I eat a lot of weird shit. Word to the wise: beware soy "cheeze". Vegan Gourmet brand is all right, but any other brand is the smegma of Satan.

In addition, my boyfriend's eating habits are a bit odd. Like putting prepared mustard on popcorn. Or covering a bagel in grape jelly, salt and pepper. Weird.

My dad eats peanut butter and baloney sandwiches, people who have never seen him eat one of these always stare at him in horror while he's making it. Also, one of my friends puts peanut butter on his hamburger. I was I was kidding but I'm not, people in the dining hall used to freak out when they'd see him do it and then actually eat it.

On that note, bassranger, I've known at least two people who tried strawberry jelly on their burgers, and I once had a salad with peanut butter instead of dressing. It's good on the lettuce, and the cucumbers, but don't put it on tomatoes... bad idea.

Hanglyman on 07/16/2008 10:02 pm

I don't think it looks all that appetizing, but I don't like bananas very much. It kind of makes me want to play Day of the Tentacle.

I've had a "Jiffy Burger", a bacon cheeseburger with peanut butter on it that a local place sells. It wasn't exactly gross, but the peanut butter totally erased any other flavor, so it was like eating a weirdly-textured, more expensive, really unhealthy peanut butter sandwich.


Psychopathicus Rex (Guest) on 07/16/2008 10:24 pm

I've had a peanut butter and roast beef sandwich before - it was actually pretty good. The thing is, though, I like my meaty sandwiches nice n' juicy, which means mayo - and mayo and peanut butter do NOT go well together. It's not that they're horrible, they're just... weird. Deeply, deeply weird. The PB and RB themselves, though - they go together fine. So my conclusion is as follows - the next time I have a PB+RB sandwich, I'll skip the mayo.

User avatar

-RoG- on 07/16/2008 10:44 pm

See, I can appreciate people enjoying a peanut butter & banana sandwich, but let's be realistic here... the "peanut butter" in Reese's Pieces candies doesn't really taste like peanut butter.

Sugar, Partially defatted peanuts, partially hudrogenated vegetable oil, whey, dextrose, carnuauba wax, resinous glaze, artificial flavor, etc.

Yeah, now that's something I want to eat with my healthy banana. Furthermore, the experience of biting into a banana and feeling a *crunch* is not something I particularly enjoyed.


Busty Yorneekaps (Guest) on 07/16/2008 11:20 pm

I used to work at a bar in West Caldwell, NJ that had a "garbage" burger on the menu which had every condiment/burger topping on it PLUS peanut butter. I saw one person eat it and she ate 3/4's of it and stopped because she was full.

I adore cheddar cheese fries with gravy, mayo, oil and vinegar all mixed up. It's delicious.

My sister used to eat tuna fish and jelly sandwiches and my friend puts olives on her cream cheese when she has a bagel (which, apparently, is not as uncommon as I thought, but still bugs me out).

Reeses smushed into a banana may not be too horrible. But you'd have to REALLY like reeses and bananas i'd imagine.


Poop on a Stick (Guest) on 07/16/2008 11:24 pm

I never thought that mashed potatoes with spaghetti and meatballs was a bad combination until my wife chastised me.

Yes! Day of the tentacle! My favorite!

I really like pistachios on a bagel with cream cheese =]


RedNightmare (Guest) on 07/17/2008 12:13 am

I have always enjoyed gravy on my salad. I saw someone do it once and it just clicked. The only thing that can make an awful letucey salad taste good would be gravy.

I new a guy who used to eat a marshmallow and peanut butter sandwich.

The Grumpus on 07/17/2008 12:23 am

Back when I was in college, and any of your food was starting to spoil, it was time to make a dish we named "scrumm." Usually, scrumm consisted of ground beef, potatoes, canned veggies (corn, green beans, peas, sometimes lima beens), cooked up, thrown together and doused in a copious amount of spaghetti sauce. It's a quick, easy way to get rid of a lot of food fast, and it doesn't taste that bad. You just have to make sure not to overboil all the elements, or it turns out to be really bland.

Since leaving college, I haven't made (or had to make) any scrumm. I might have to.


JMShearer (Guest) on 07/17/2008 12:46 am

Does the "Reeces on a banana" thing look good? Well, if i'm really in the mood to go out of my way, yes. Otherwise, there are more practical and better tasting ways of getting peanut butter and bananas together.

As far as weird food combinations, I'm sure I've come up with a few here in my little makeshift kitchen laboratory, but they've either been nothing memorable or nothing I'd consider weird. Closest thing would be the cake I do with the syrup from canned fruit. Better for trying to feed to animals than trying to eat myself, really.

Well, peanut butter on a banana is pure deliciousness, but I gotta say, I don't find Reese's pieces stuck on my banana all that appetizing; to me, it's what herpes might look like in snack form.

Uh oh, it looks like someone just invented a metaphor!

User avatar

Copper on 07/17/2008 1:29 am

The banana *looks* edible, but you've got a point. It's really taste that matters. Sort of like, to me, real grapes do not taste like anything "grape" flavored.

Day of the Tentacle! Whooohoo!

I also have seen documented footage of my boyfriend making a "milkshake" of: milk, applesauce, bananas, pound cake, honey brown lager, chocolate syrup, some type of citrus cola *thinks* I think there was more, but that's what stands out, at least. He then drank the entire thing and then proceeded to relieve his stomach of the contents a second later, but he did drink it all.

My weird food combinations? Bologna and BBQ chip sandwiches, dipping fries in bbq and ranch sauce, and peas mixed in with my mac and cheese. I think that's about the weirdest thing that I eat, heh.

Desert_Screams on 07/17/2008 2:06 am

Bizarre foods that sound terrible, taste great-- I'd recommend the peanut butter and Lutheran sandwich. You'd think the Lutheran would be well nigh tasteless, but it's actually pretty good-- just don't use the crunchy PB.


bassranger1208 (Guest) on 07/17/2008 2:44 am

I'm currently eating my "weird/disgusting" food combo. Ritz crackers with cold mustard on top. Don't ask me why, but I absolutely love it and it's pretty much my favorite thing to snack on when I'm hungry.


John (Guest) on 07/17/2008 3:10 am

The banana and Reese's pieces looks ok, by the sounds of it I would only take a bite to taste it.

For a good combination: Tuna and BBQ sauce


ElkcimKire (Guest) on 07/17/2008 3:36 am

My wife loves to eat peanut butter and butter sandwiches. I myself love making peanutbutter and parmesan cheese sandwiches. wiggy but good.


val (Guest) on 07/17/2008 3:49 am

I've been known to eat a peanut butter and bacon bits sandwich occasionally. It's not bad! Good substitute for crunchy PB when you're out.

I knew a girl who, as a kid, would fill a bowl with ranch dressing, sprinkle bacon bits on top, stir it up, and eat it like soup. She would subsequently vomit from the ridiculous amount of sodium and bad things.

Don't know if it counts, but I'll add mushrooms, jalapenos, and cheese to pretty much any food that's not sweet in order to improve it.

Kybo Ren on 07/17/2008 6:04 am

PB& banana- classic, PB on both slices of bread will hold the banana together better.

PB& cheese- another excellent combo, use Velveeta sliced at 1/8 inch, with PB slightly thicker for best taste.

PB& Fluff- works better than straight up marshmallows, use just a drizzle of Hershey's chocolate syrup to even it out.

KING CREDO- bologna, banana, ketchup, chocolate sauce- can work. but it's gotta be bread ketchup bologna banana chocolate bread, it works even better if you fry the bologna and add Velveeta between it and the banana.

ROG- reese's are just too sweet to mix with banana. Sounds like they'll do anything to get em' included with something healthy. PART of a nutritious breakfast?

I'm off to try some pickle combinations

I actually went to a restaurant where peanut butter on burgers was an option. After trying it, I would have to say that it was not too bad, but nothing that I would go out of my way to order. You got to remember that there are a lot of weird burger combinations out there. One of my favorites is the Royal from Red Robin that uses an egg with the burger. Sounds disgusting, tastes great!

You know, I can see where if the peanut butter in Reeses Pieces actually tasted like peanut butter that I would like it. But, then again, I've tried so many strange food combinations that I've actually really liked. A list of some of my favorites-

Chocolate covered potato chips
Chocolate covered salted bacon
Pickles and Chocolate Pudding (do NOT use Vanilla)
Applesauce and Broccili
Apples and Ketchup
Mashed Potato and Ketchup sandwich

After reading all these I have come to the conclusion that peanut butter mixed with anything is awesome.

Years ago, one of my brothers put a half of a Publix sub sandwich (mayo, roast beef, lettuce...) into a blender, took two sips (gagging in-between) and threw the rest out. The other brother ate creamed corn and cheerios; supposedly tasty. As for myself, I love chocolate chip pancakes covered in Log Cabin ("fake", not maple!) syrup. I've also tasted a chocolate that has dried chili pepper pieces in it; I love chocolate and spicy things, but that was just revolting. As for the banana, it looks like it has some weird disease. XD

Weird things I've eaten? Hmmm...a dinner gelatin. You know, a jello mold with pieces of meat and veggies.
Peanut butter and american cheese from a deli on white bread. Not as glamorous as it seems.
I've made some absurd egg creations, too. I used to add a quarter cup of parmesan cheese to 3 scrambled eggs, along with some maple syrup and pepper, then cook it in the microwave. The cheese would gather at the sides due to convection and rotation, and form a cheese barrier around the egg interior in the microwave safe dish. It was delicious. But horribly unhealthy, due to the quarter cup of cheese.
Habanero sauce on vanilla ice cream. It's amazing! You can put a lot of sauce on the ice cream because of the temperature and the creaminess;
The fatty molecules act as a barrier against the spice of the sauce. You still taste the habanero, but it's like it was pussy whipped by the most delicious lady ever. Delicious women....

Copper on 07/18/2008 12:06 am

Reading through a few more has reminded me. I've had chocolate filled with cherry and chili pepper before. I had to remember not to pop the whole thing into my mouth and chew like I usually do, heh.

I've also had chicken sandwiches with butter (margarine? I didn't make it, the host mom I was with did.) instead of mayo/miracle whip.

I also detested pork chops as a kid, so to make them more palatable, I used to dunk them in applesauce like you do with A-1 or ketchup.

There's also my uncle who puts ketchup on *everything* (including things that don't need it, like, say spaghetti). He'd tell my mother that something she made was really good and my father would go "How do you know? Everything tastes like ketchup!"


guest (Guest) on 07/18/2008 12:54 am

User avatar

TipoDeemin on 07/18/2008 1:22 am

Copper, I've heard of applesauce with pork chops before. I think that's a pretty normal thing to do. ;)

I have an uncle who loves to put yellow mustard on sugar cookies, and my grandpa once ate a cat food sandwich (and enjoyed it) because my grandma left the food on the counter in a bowl and he was sure it was tuna fish.

As for me, every year at Thanksgiving, I end the meal by challenging and being challenged by my sister to create terrible food combinations and eat them. This last year, the worst-tasting of the bunch was cranberry sauce with mandarin oranges in it on top of imitation crab meat. That being said, I would try that Reese's Pieces banana.

val (Guest) on 07/18/2008 2:46 am

My mom once made a hot dog pizza. She was cleaning out the fridge and decided to combine half a pack of hot dogs with a frozen pizza. It's really not all that odd, considering hot dogs and pepperoni are probably related. But it still seems strange to me.

A friend of mine puts ketchup on everything. I've watched him completely cover his Waffle House hash browns in ketchup, as if he were frosting a cake.

Sebastian Kirchoff (Guest) on 07/18/2008 12:30 pm

1.That bananna looks disgusting, but I'll probably make one for shits and giggles and give it to somebody I don't like.

2. Well, this isn't a food combination, but I have eaten a roasted grasshopper. It was fairly tasty, and tasted like burnt sunflower seeds. My grandma used to say that when she was a kid and was poor, she would have to eat mustard sandwiches, which actually sounds tasty. Then, one time, when I went to my uncle's house, his dad made this "guacamole" that consisted of Avacados and Manonaise. It was white as snow, so me and my uncle got some green food coloring and made it a really dark green. We tried it, and almost threw up after eating it.

GreenPeaness on 07/18/2008 12:45 pm

When I was little, my absolute favorite thing to eat was corn with mayonnaise. I don't know what about it made it delicious; I never ate it even once after about my 6th birthday, and I'm fairly certain that it'd make me puke if I tried it now, but for awhile there it was my absolute treasure. That and Captain D's. I was told that I used to be crazy insane for Captain D's fish when I was little. I don't remember that.
Most recently, a couple of years ago I was at my friend Newman's. His grandma had whipped up a concoction of some kind. A hellish find made from the pages of Redbook or some shit. It was, if I remember right:
Cranberry Juice
Ginger Ale
Whole Chunks of Pineapple - not rings, not the fruit cup kind, bricks. Solid masses of the fruit's still-beating heart.

Served in a bell glass, with a cute umbrella and bendy straw to make it fun. I was the guest. I was given the first. I never went back to their house again. Now, it may be because I graduated college soon after and moved to New Mexico, that's one possible excuse. Another was this drink. This creamy, carbonated, frothy nightmare. I just now remembered that part. Something about the ginger ale reacting violently with the mayo, it frothed over the top. We dubbed the drink a "Pine-Ale Mayo-berry" or bastardized into the:

I do enjoy Banana slices topped with peanut butter, and I suppose this isn't too different.


Clayman (Guest) on 07/18/2008 6:22 pm

It looks like...uhh...a lady-toy to me...
Which is just wrong considering you had to eat it.
One of my friends likes to add peanutbutter and strawberry jelly in his big macs from when we go to Mcdonalds,which i find rather weird.Or shove apple pies in his chickenburger...yeah,i find that a waste of tasty food :(

My friend Jordan and i used to make this thing we called heart obliterators. it's a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich, but with two types of jelly...along with chocolate syrup, coolwhip, marshmallow sauce, honey, and caremal topping. of course we could only make one about once a month....anymore than that and we'd die. you could actually feel yourself getting fatter with every bite

Well one time I was out camping with some people, and in the morning we were about to have breakfast. What were we having? Why the usual assortment of eggs and sausage, which is more than enough to satisfy my morning cravings.

I turn my back for a few minutes, or at least it feels like a few minutes now, and someone managed to sneak chocolate into these eggs.

Let me put that by you again, someone mixed CHOCOLATE into SCRAMBLED EGGS. Tasted exactly like one would expect chocolate and eggs to taste like when mixed together.... like shit.

Dipping cheese doritos into chocolate ice-cream is creamy dreamy!


TheVile (Guest) on 07/18/2008 9:13 pm

I do NOT mix foods. I find it disgusting and not to mention i'm a very picky eater. I've never mixed even mundane foods let alone weird ones.


HiHoney8D (Guest) on 07/18/2008 9:21 pm

My brother, being a stoner, loves to make new foods.
I try them with him.
My all-time favourite, though, is Garlic&Rosemary Wheat-Thins with Wine-cheese (the wine is IN the cheese), baby carrots, and Bacon-bits.
It made me puke about 30 minutes after ingestion, but it was then best he came up with. Ever.

Reading about that Redbook concoction reminded me of a book we found at work (and I later found at a discount book store for, like, a buck.) It's called "The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan" and it's almost like an I-Mockery article in book format.

This woman found these cards in her grandmother's attic and they're from Weight Watchers, apparently, and they're all these *bizarre* recipies like the title one, "Mackerel Pudding." There's also "Spinach and Egg Mold," "Eggplant Caviar," "Broiled appleburgers," "Mackerelly," "Pimento Puree," and my favorite, the "Lime Special." The special ingredient? Beef broth. In a drink. With lime.

Granted, the majority of the humor comes from her commentary, but still, reading some of the recipie titles and the visuals that go along with them is enough to get you to swear off food...

it might be just me, but that looks amazing. Give me 3 scoops of icecream in a bowl with it and I'd be set.

Peanut butter and ham sandwiches. Don't ask me why, but they were tasty.

Ubiq on 07/20/2008 11:36 am

Considering that Reese's Pieces have a edge to them, wouldn't it be better to push them into the banana rather than simply sticking them on? Not that I'm condoning such a thing mind you, combining the two still seems like an affront to the Food Gods. Not on the level of Hop & Gator maybe, but still...

Anyway, far as funky food combinations go, I don't know about myself, but I have a cousin who used to put ketchup on pizza. Apparently, this was because he didn't like tomatoes or tomato sauce.

I sometimes eat 2 dozen black olives, and then quickly drink a glass of milk immediately afterwards. It's like there's a party in my mouth, and everyone's being murdered!

Yes, I'm a freak.


Russ (Guest) on 07/20/2008 12:52 pm

I wanna say it was someones last day in the graphic/packaging dept. and they wanted to go out on a story telling note. But it might just simply be...another odd person, not explaining why you should combine hard candy with soft fruit *shrugs*


fujiapplesgoBOOM (Guest) on 07/20/2008 2:49 pm

I myself am not a big fan of Reese's Pieces or bananas, but I still think its a terrible creation. Sure chocolate covered bananas are good, and peanut butter and banana sandwiches are good, but combine all three? Its just too much.

As for weird food combinations, apples with salt is very delicious. Just as long as your don't put too much salt. Then the whole experience is just ruined.


Jim (Guest) on 07/20/2008 6:35 pm

#1: I actually don't like peanut butter, so I don't like Reese's Pieces by extension, and by further extension, the Reese's Pieces banana also looks unappetizing.

#2: Chocolate bread. My dad works for a large bakery, and the company just started selling chocolate-flavored bread to Denny's for a kind of "Chocolate French Toast" being test marketed in a few places. He brought home a loaf for us to try. Unfortunately, it isn't very chocalatey


Joe (Guest) on 07/20/2008 8:13 pm

1. The banana doesn't look appetizing.

2. The weirdest food combo is a tie between microwaved ketchup sandwiches and fry-burgers. (hamburgers with fries on top of the patty and my fave condiments on top of those)


Joe (Guest) on 07/20/2008 8:15 pm

I meant to say for #2 the weirdest food combo I made.

Whatever you do, don't tell him that ketchup is made from tomatoes; you might ruin his entire life.

Dungeonbrownies on 07/20/2008 11:44 pm

Mister Tea- i think modern ketchup is mostly corn syrup, thickener, red dye, and vinegar. theres barely any tomoato in it at all, save the concentrate paste they put a lil in.


Ryback (Guest) on 07/21/2008 4:37 am

The weirdest thing I have eaten:
Hot dog in bun with ketchup, mustard, chocolate and strawberry topping, yoghurt ice cream sprinkled with cheese puffs. Needless to say one bite was enough.

king credo isn't lying! this isn't actually really surprising but ranch dressing and bbq sauce taste great together!

as I kid I used to eat peanut butter and butter sandwiches and recently I have heard of someone's kid eating a pile liverwurst (I think) with a hole in the middle and peanut butter in that hole, much to the mother's horror

I haven't read all the comments so hope I'm not repeating:

When I was a kid we'd make "Mud Bread" white bread covered with a thick layer of margarine mixed with copius amounts of sugar and cinnamon.

Also, Peanut butter and sharp cheddar on a hamburger bun is mighty fine.

RadioNinja on 07/22/2008 2:16 pm

Also, RoG:

Didn't Reese's release a peanut butter/banana cup a while back having to do with celebrating 50 years of Dead Elvis or something? Someone at Reese's likes bananas. A lot. Either that or they're owned by the same parent corporation as a banana distributor...banana.


CUSTOMER! (Guest) on 07/24/2008 10:48 am

1: Hell no.

2: I have a few combinations to tell. Salami with penut butter is apparently very good according to my sister. When I went to the Czech Republic I was served chicken with gravy that had diced canned peaches in it. That was not very good. I have something better than the heart obliderator for obliderating hearts. It's called the McTrigger. It's over 1000 calories and costs less than $3 canadian to make.

Step 1: Purchase a junior chicken and a double cheeseburger
Step 2: Insert junior chicken between the two patties of the double cheeseburger

The only problem with this is you get a giant McCrash 30 mins after eating it (you get really tired and your stomach feels like a little league baseball team is flailing their bats around inside your stomach), and some of my friends with weaker stomachs have reported violent diarreah 3 hours after consuming the McTrigger. It tastes pretty damn good, but it does feel like you're getting fatter each bite you take, much like the aforementioned heart obliderator.

I found this site called URAjerk maybe you can use it. It seems to help get me through the issues of dealing with some of the jerks I know. At least I can vent about these jerks, plus I get a kick out of sending them some cards.

i have to drink a glass of milk if i eat ice cream. nOn


guest (Guest) on 07/27/2008 5:27 pm

hmmm maybe mustard+apples


Tim (Guest) on 07/28/2008 7:17 pm

I remember when I was too little to stay home alone, I'd go down my grandma's house. She'd always get chicken fingers from the deli counter at the grocery store and cover them in vinegar. It was so good.

Mental Pooperscooper on 07/29/2008 1:07 am

1.i'd eat it, i wouldn't be able to shake the feeling of desease but i'd eat it

2. I made pizza crust, used a combo of hot cocoa mix (i think) and honey as sauce, put jelly beans and skittles in the sauce, coated it with cheese, cooked it(almost blew up)...wasn't terrible but it had the effect of easter candy, and i almost threw up

Also Jimskin tell me wut kind of jelly bean and if i can find them ill eat it


jokerrrr (Guest) on 07/30/2008 12:11 pm

Peanut Butter Banana n Nutella sandwhiches are the shiznit.


Sid (Guest) on 08/07/2008 11:51 am

No, the banana does not look appetizing, and I wouldn't eat it.

Putting candy on a banana just doesn't make sense.


sgfaz (Guest) on 10/02/2008 7:57 pm

I remember seeing these "Pastaghetti" Mexican Candies at 7-11...There still there, just gathering dust...


DABOMB (Guest) on 04/30/2010 11:08 am

My dad put peanutbutter in our nacho seasoning before. we added sour cream nachocheese sauce and guacamole to it it was actualy pretty good...
