Juice pairings

So we all know that there are beer/alcohol pairings, but what about JUICE pairings? Are there particular meals or foods that you find taste well with certain fruit juices?

For instance, orange juice tastes best in the morning with breakfast-y type stuff (pancakes, sausage, hash...)

Sprite/7up tastes weirdly ok with Twizzlers (for me)

Coke and pizza (right?)

Food habits that make you go...

For some reason I don't mind other people's loud smacking. I even find it sort of relaxing, but I can NOT stand my parent's chewing. I don't know why. Probably has some sort of emotional connection.

Food habits that make you go...

I don't mind fast eaters. To me, it means they are really hungry, the food is good, and/or the person is in a hurry.

I am crazy and I guess sound sensitive. I try to respect everyone though. No hatred.

Food habits that make you go...

I wouldn't EVER say anything to these people or judge them as individuals. I just have my personal preferences that's all. Just curious if others had similar internal reactions. Peace.

Food habits that make you go...

One time I saw someone put Heinz ketchup on their sushi rice. My body started to breathe heavily to the point of almost coming to tears. Thankfully I caught myself and started to laugh. Though, I was actually going to cry!

When I see someone not eat the skin and throw it away, I have to count to 5 in my head so I don't start yelling.

On a happier note, I get sooooo happy and warm when I see someone slurping a big bowl of noodles. Life is good for them!

the last sandwich in the world!

If you had to eat one sandwich for the rest of your life, nothing else, with no modifications EVER, what would it be?

Mine, PB and Honey.

It's nothing to be ashamed of but.......

I have always wanted to do that, but always had to share the chicken with others. Skin especially the belly is the yummiest. I did that once with KFC because I hate their white meat, but the skin is the best.

Has anyone tried the ghost challenge? They are free if you can do it right?

Do you view exercise as penance or justification?

I exercise for emotional and mental health and it DOES help with muscle stuff.

The Manliest Restaurant in America?

In Minnesota, Manny's Steakhouse is pretty chest pound. Service is wonderful by the way.

Are condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayo, aioli, etc.) necessary for burgers?

If you toast the bun and the burger is juicy and seasoned, no handles required. Although, if there is doctoring needed, BBQ sauce or Worcester for sure.

Best sandwich-chip combination

What is the sandwich-chip combo? For example....

My preferences:

-peanut butter sandwiches only + sour cream and onion chips
-hot dogs + bbq or plain lays (no fries)
-burger + NO chips (fries though)
-turkey sandwiches + salt & vinegar or plain
-meatball subs + nacho doritos

I guess I like certain things, but I am willing to explore. "Interchipwich relationships" (ha) G'head....

Cheap (but good) places for college kids in the Roseville area?

Word to that. Or grab something at Shuang Hur (University and Dale). Art Songs has good chicken wings.

New Asia on University and Lexington ain't bad either.

Osaka in Roseville

For my mom's birthday, I want to take her to Osaka. She has been talking about it for a year. I think it is time. Is it good? Are there better choices for Japanese?
