9 things that shouldn't go together but do
We’ve all had evenings on the sofa or cinema trips where we’ve struggled to choose between the chewy sweets and the chocolates or the chocolates and biscuits.
Well, now you don’t have to choose. Cadbury has partnered with Oreo and Maynards for different Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Mix-Up packs (rrp £2.13).
The combinations are a bit left-field but work, much like these...
Alice Cooper and the Muppets
He’s an American rock singer with a passion for eye liner and snakes, they’re cute, fuzzy puppets. And it’s a match made in heaven. Check this out from 1977.
That That and Lulu
Weeeeell, this combo makes some people want to shout but we think it could be magic. Talking of cheese...
Apple and Cheese
Fruit and fat? Whatever. This one gets the nod from Shopper’s news editor Dan Keel and god knows how he came across the combo, but be thankful he did. The tartness of the apple cuts through the fat of the cheese a treat.
Bing and Bowie
An oddity that didn’t come from space, Beckenham’s most famous son teamed up with Yank crooner Bing Crosby for a festive telly show in 1977 and the result is the stuff of Christmas legend.
Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger
Oh, the 80s. Imagine a film where short, mouthy DeVito is the long, lost brother of beefcake Arnie. That’ll be Twins. Hilarious.
Turner and Hooch
There are umpteen odd-couple, buddy cop movies. But this Tom Hanks movie ups the ante, because the partner is...a dog. Cue box office success.
Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant
Two of the NBA’s biggest stars of all time famously didn’t see eye-to-eye, but it didn’t stop them being awesome together. In the eight years they played together from 1996 to 2004, the LA Lakers won three consecutive championships and were in another finals.
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
He’s a 6ft 6” Ukrainian boxing legend and she’s a 5ft Hollywood actress actress, but the unlikely pairing seems to work. They dated from 2009 to 2011 before briefly splitting and reunited and are now engaged.
