Everything with Ketchup

“From a breakfast egg to chili con carne—everything needs an extra dash of ketchup!”
- Marie, Team Community

Raw Dough

“Even as a child, I loved to bake cookies—not for the cookies, but because I love to eat the raw dough.” 
- Clarissa ,Team Content

Melted Ice Cream with Toppings

“Let ice cream rest until it’s melted and liquid like a soup. Then add chocolate sprinkles, grapes, or cream and stir until it’s all combined”
- Raffael, Team HR

Chocolate Cake Soaked in Warm Milk

“You need 1 – 2 pieces of chocolate cake—they can be a bit dry or old. Pour over warm (rice) milk and stir until a viscous mixture forms. And there you have a dreamy dessert!”
- Hannes, Team Product

Liquid from Canned Mushrooms or Pickles

“I know that most of the people find this very disgusting, but I love to drink the liquid from canned button mushrooms or pickles.”
- Julia, Team Content

Uncooked Thai Noodles

“Open the package and the spice mixture insdie. Sprinkle mixture over noodles, then hold the bag closed and shake so that spice mixture is well-distributed. Afterward, eat it raw, just like that.” 
- Verena, Founder

Hot Kellog’s Frosties

“Pouring hot milk over Kellogg’s Frosties in a bowl. After a while, this turns into a kind of unhealthy porridge. It’s totally sweet, but also very satisfying.”
- Mengting, Founder

French fries Dipped into Chocolate Milkshakes

“There’s nothing better than when sweet meets salty, which is why dipping French fries into thick, diner-style milkshakes is just so good.” 
- Julie, Team Content

The Special Pizza

“I love to eat pizza with asparagus, Hollandaise sauce, sweet corn, pineapple, and button mushrooms.”
- Jeanne, Team Social

The Hangover Menu

“Not sure if two pizzas and a trifle at the same time when I’m hungover counts for guilty pleasure...”
- Hugo, Team Content
