    Do you ever get a weird taste from combining certain foods and/or drinks?

    For example, I find that if I drink coffee and eat say peanut butter on toast at the same time, I get a mildly unpleasant taste that ruins my cup of coffee. The same goes more or less for chocolate. Does anyone experience this, and could you perhaps shed some light on why it happens?

    I get the same with Coca Cola and Ice cream! Usually after having an ice cream or a few scoops of ice cream, I find it almost unpleasant to drink Coke. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the dairy or not. As for your peanut butter and coffee, it could be that peanut butter and coffee are both strong flavours, and just don't mix well. But who knows eh?

      Coke and ice cream is another one. What about say orange juice after a breath mint?

    I think that you are developing a discriminating palate. Keep trying new things and maybe you will invent a new haute cuisine style.
    There are four basic perceptual "taste tones" which are sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and a a fifth "chordal" taste known as savory, or "umami" in asian culture. a sixth could be "metallic" and a seventh is perhaps "tingly." Next would be hot spice (capsaicin) for number eight, and the ninth would be numbness- (anbesol, cocaine,anise or fennel oil) Not to forsake temperature and texture. The tongue an nasal mucosa can become "saturated" with the sensory stimulants and thus become desensitized. This in turn makes certain flavor combinations to be off-balanced, producing the perceptual illusion of off-flavor. IMHO
