Prejudice # 2: Completely Rational

There is simply way too much mixing of foods and food products these days. I am especially wary of sweet and savory things mixed, like any sort of fruit bagel or pineapple on pizza. And nuts are all well and good, but they should only mix with themselves. They should not try to infiltrate anything sweet, not around me. Except for Reese’s peanut butter cups, a rare example of two great tastes in one.

Thai cucumber salad that has that sugary syrup but the bits of onion, cilantro, and jalepeno in it?

OO! The mangos with cayenne pepper in the summertime from the street vendors! Yeah!

One last one that is sure to be a universal: Planters Klondike bars. Salty peanuts with a little caramel in the chocolate of a Klondike bar. If you haven't had 'em, be careful, cause you end up eating all six Klondikes in a couple hours as a direct result of the simultaneous salt and sweet.
