    Yeah.. I'm Australian too, yes there are Americanised cafes serving it in the last couple years.. we have many American influences popping up but I'm betting though as a kid you'd never have seen that combo or even thought of it..
    I'm just saying I'll have my eggs, bacon and toast sans syrup thanks 😁

    Oh and caramelized banana and ice cream.. yes please 🤤

    I just made buttermilk pancakes this morning topped with maple syrup and bananas. I don't put sugar in my pancakes, though, so perhaps what I'm making is more technically flatbread? I usually like my pancakes with butter too, but since I'm trying to keep the calories in check today, I skipped that. Pancakes with strawberry jam, apple butter or plum butter are a nice switch up, too!

    Though the carmelized banana and ice cream sounds divine!

    Yummm.. strawberry jam is good too.
    I'd try maple syrup and banana.
    Yeah, the calories suck in them. I save eating mine till a treat day, there's just under 800 cals in mine, I cook them in a bit of butter too :#

    I think that brand may go by a different name here, but hose cookies are strictly school party fare. I love cookies, but those are too “kid-friendly” for my tastes. The ones at my grocery store are usually peanut and treenut free though, which is why they make an excellent class party treat.

    I think this is why I've seen quite a few of these, nut allergen friendly.

    I don't land one particular way on the matter, I'll have one if they are available, they aren't my preference but I don't find them gross either.

    Is this a real thing?

    If so, just... why? Why would anyone think that was a good thing to make?

    Apparently the mustard ice cream is real, a special thing for National Mustard Day. If it were in front of me, I'd be interested in trying it. It doesn't sound good, but I'm open minded. ;)

    yeah, just a lil' sample taste would be enough, you know.... one of those tiny, white, plastic spoons

    Maybe... just to confirm that it really IS as disgusting as it sounds... ;) I wouldn't pay money for it though!

    I always have ketchup on hot dogs! Or chicken dogs as the case may be these days. And I eat marshmallows almost every night. :(

    The lofthouse cookies aren't worth the calories and the icing sucks so the one time I bought some, I just ended up eating around the outside edge of the cookies and threw the part with any icing away.

    And scrambled eggs - ketchup is awesome. Maybe it would make the cookies in the OP a bit better too? :D

    Ketchup on eggs is great. But gotta love ketchup on mac and cheese.

    You need steak sauce on eggs, way better than ketchup! And Tabasco sauce goes on mac and cheese.

    In my life Tabasco goes on every savory dish or snack i eat

    While I hear what you're saying, I find that horseradish sauce goes with literally everything.

    (And after I had almost-certainly-whooping-cough a few years back, I couldn't eat ANY condiments for six weeks because they all provoked coughing fits that closed my throat. That was a terrible, bland time in my life)

    I actually don't think it sounds that bad... call me crazy??! but I think it makes sense... I mean, mustard is actually sweet-ish.
