Certain foods just go together. Peanut butter and jelly, bacon and maple, chocolate and hazelnut -- flavor profiles like these are just meant for each other. They bring out the best in one another, enhancing their best qualities, and they never let the other one down. Trusty partners, loyal compatriots, best friends -- these food pairs just complete each other.

If there was ever one power couple in the flavor duo canon to top all the rest -- the one no one can resist swooning over -- it would definitely be chocolate and peanut butter. There's nothing quite like sweet, rich chocolate mixed with salty, creamy peanut butter. In cake form, cookie form, ice cream form or straight up on a spoon, chocolate and peanut butter are so amazing together that they basically put all other food pairings to shame. Thai peanut butter cups? Chocolate and peanut butter pie pops? That's just the beginning.
