“We go together like cocaine and waffles”

The film comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006) introduced combinations that sort (but not really) go together, like “Chinese food and chocolate pudding” and “cocaine and waffles” and “peanut butter and ladies.” The odd combinations have been frequently cited.

We go together like Chinese food and chocolate pudding. Let’s face it.
Quote context:
382 00:21:56,300 --> 00:21:59,200 -Shake and Bake in full effect. -It’s always been like that.
383 00:22:01,100 --> 00:22:03,100 Me and Ricky, since we were little kids, man.
384 00:22:03,200 --> 00:22:06,500 We go together like Chinese food and chocolate pudding. Let’s face it.
385 00:22:06,700 --> 00:22:09,300 Yeah, but those are two things that don’t really go together.
386 00:22:09,600 --> 00:22:12,100 We go together like cocaine and waffles.
387 00:22:12,100 --> 00:22:15,000 No, like, for instance, if I say peanut butter and....
388 00:22:15,600 --> 00:22:17,500 -Ladies, right? -Yep.

ELECTRIC PAIRINGS: FROM ST VINCENT TO BIEBER
BY MEREDITH CONNELLY
There are certain classic pairings in this world: peanut butter and jelly, wine and cheese, chocolate and hazelnut. Perhaps the most beautiful of such parings is the glorious and long-standing union between laser tag and electronic music.
