If 2017 has taught us anything, it's that people really, really like food mash-ups. Take Oreo, for instance. The brand is one of many that understand the appeal of seriously out-there flavors. This year alone, they've debuted “Fireworks Oreos,” their new Coconut flavor, a Salted Caramel combo, plus Waffles & Syrup and even Mississippi Mud Pie flavors.
And the world of mash-ups isn't all about sweet confections. There have been some innovations in the savory world, too. From Popeyes, we saw cookie-coated chicken tenders. From Taco Bell, there were chicken nugget chips. And who could forget the chicken-flavored chocolate truffles KFC offered for Mother's Day?

Now, we're witnessing what just might be the ultimate mash-up of all. It combines the sweet and savory worlds, it's entirely unexpected, and it can even be served on top of the very thing it's mashing up.
