First we looked at three sandwiches: Tuna Salad Parmesan, Peanut Butter Pickle, and Doughnut Oyster Po'Boy. So, quiz yourself: Which of these wacky combos is a thing?

Peanut Butter Pickle Sandwich!

This sandwich, which combines peanut butter with bread-and-butter pickles, is all over the internet and social media. It has such a strong fan base, it's been referred to as a cult favorite. Connoisseurs say that the salty peanut butter pairs well with the sweet-and-sour crunch of the pickles.

Okay, next up: Which of these kooky candies is a thing: Sour Cotton Candy, Hickory Smoked Candies or Probiotic Licorice?

Sour Cotton Candy!

This candy is available in multiple flavors, including grape, watermelon and fruit punch. It's great for folks who love the pucker of sour candies, but it also makes for a fun prank on your unsuspecting kids or friends. Just offer them some cotton candy, then sit back and watch when they take that first bite. After that initial shock, we love the flavor, and we're betting they will, too.

Last trend is outside-the-box margaritas. Which of these is a thing: Barbecue Sauce Margarita, Avocado Margarita or Tofu Margarita?

Avocado Margarita!

This one can be found all over the web and on cocktail menus around the world. Fans of this unusual drink love it because the avocado adds creaminess and some avocado flavor. The texture mimics that of a Key Lime Pie margarita—what's not to love. Want to try it? Check out this amazing recipe!
