If people say what an odd combination, they are right. Still somehow it works. Folks either liked it a lot or thought it was "different, but tasty".

Exquisite! This was a big hit at my party, everyone loved it! The flavor combinations sounded strange, but were incredible together. I should have made another one for my family alone. Thanks!!
