There is no such thing as a dumb or weird question in Longview, Texas. If you don't ask the question, you'll never know the answer or receive a response.

So, if you've ever thought you had a weird question or were wondering if others did the same thing as you all you need to do is post that topic or question on social media and wait for the responses to roll in.

As I was scrolling through my social media feed I noticed that someone from in a Longview closed social group that I am a member of posted a question to the group asking if 'adding mustard to chili is a Texas thing.'

The guy posing the question is new to Texas and Longview and when his friend told him about it and he wanted to know if it was true or if she was just messing with him.

As I said, if it's weird, put it out there on social media and the comments will roll in and that's what's happened. In less than nine hours more than 200 comments and replies have been made.

He's not the only one though in Longview that has never heard about this but a lot of people are doing it too. Now I haven't ever added mustard to chili, but when you read some of the comments, we're doing it already, especially when we have a chili dog!


It's wild that this showed up on my feed because I was in a discussion in the radio station break room the other day and someone asked us to name a food combination that we do, but others find weird or offensive. Just like mustard in chili, these responses brought on a debate between our co-workers.

Weird food combinations were mentioned by the staff of the radio station.

  • Butter in salsa
  • Ketchup on eggs
  • Ketchup on steak
  • Wendy's Frosty and fries
  • Cheddar cheese on apple pie
  • Peanut butter on a hamburger
  • Melted cheese on ramen noodles
  • Avacado mixed with chocolate
  • Popcorn and milk

To be honest I had never heard of peanut butter on a burger until I was on vacation in Steamboat Springs with my family a year or so ago. We were at a local burger joint they had a peanut butter burger on the menu so we gave it a shot and it ended up being one of the best burgers we had in a while.
