Now that our judges have determined the Elite Eight, you readers have once again taken the reins. After a couple days’ quick polling, you’ve selected which four of our weird-food-combination contenders should remain on the bracket for the next round.
- No. 1 Grilled cheese sandwich covered in maple syrup
- No. 2 Peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich (toasted)
- No. 5 Eggo waffle topped with fried egg, mashed avocado and Sriracha
- No. 11 Peanut butter grilled cheese sandwich

You are now free to vote in the current polls, Maple Grilled Cheese vs. Eggy Waffle and PB&B&B vs. Peanut Butter Grilled Cheese. These polls will remain up on the site for two days, after which we’ll announce which two finalists that will go on to compete in the final competition to become Munch Madness 2014 Weird Food Combo of the Year!
