Everyone has heard stories about the weird and intense food cravings that women experience when they are pregnant. There’s the pregnant woman who must have had dill pickles dipped in ice cream or the one who couldn’t get through the night without a bucket of a specific type of fried chicken.
Researchers have yet to determine the exact reason pregnant women have these seemingly unnatural cravings, but there are a few reasons that are often cited. Pregnant women have an increased smell and taste which can have a direct effect on their appetite.
Some researchers believe that their bodies need specific nutrients that they need for a healthy pregnancy. Others have suggested that asking for food at odd hours may be a way for a pregnant person to develop a supportive bond with their partner before the baby arrives.
Mia Challiner, a British college student who lives in France, decided to try out some of these weird food combinations on her TikTok page, and the videos quickly went viral, racking up millions of views.
In the videos, she makes weird combos like pizza and ice cream or chicken and peanut butter, gobbles them up, then gives them a rating.
After watching these videos, it’s pretty clear that she has an open mind and adventurous taste buds as she really enjoys disturbing combos.
