Growing up, whenever we would have pizza, we would also have chocolate milk.

I think I was nearly an adult before I figured out that this is a nonstandard combo. I was like "Doesn't everyone drink chocolate milk with pizza? LOL. No idea why this was a thing. We really never kept chocolate milk on hand, otherwise. So weird. I've asked my mom, and she doesn't remember how it came to be a thing, either.

OP, what do you consider an appropriate beverage for consumption with such a meal? I agree with the above poster that this is a very odd thing to be concerned about. Why are you wasting your time and energy worrying about this?

Well, and it's obviously a very specifically targeted concern, as in he has one acquaintance whose dietary habits trouble or baffle him, to the point where he's wondering if they're generalized to the public as a whole.

So I gathered. I'm still wondering what she* considers an appropriate beverage to consume with meals. Would she be equally offended if her coworker immediately wolfed down an orange, an apple, or a piece of melon after finishing the soup?

* I could be wrong, but I believe the OP is female.

I have a friend who won't drink any other liquid when he has soup. I don't really get his reasoning, but whatever. It doesn't bother me - he makes no objection to my having other liquids as well as soup.

The one I don't get is going in to a restaurant and trying to order soup (which is ON THEIR MENU) only to be told that soup is only seasonally available, as if that is a real thing. EG they don't serve soup in the summer "because it is hot out and who wants hot soup in their stomach when its already hot".

That might have been a thing 50 years ago, before air conditioning became ubiquitous. It is certainly NOT a thing now. And in point of fact, these restaurants ARE AIR CONDITIONED - so what difference does it make? They still serve all manner of other hot foods. Why not hot soup?

I thought I recognized the soup & juice story.

Why does it matter what other people eat or what they choose to drink with it or after it or before it or on the following Tuesday?


If you don't want to eat soup and then drink juice, then don't. Problem solved.

I am one of those odd coworkers. I get hinted at that I have an eating and exercise disorder. My habits are noticed by a coworker. I bring my protein drinks and diet jello to snack on all day, put stevia over most of my foods, eat my scrambled eggs or chicken in my Tupperware container, have a desk of canned veggies, diet jello cups and soup (pop it open and eat it - no need to heat it up, tastes the same) and just whatever I feel like eating. I don't think I have a problem but I guess some do and that's okay as long as I like what I am eating, all is cool at the office.

Soup and juice...no problem. Some combos like milk and orange juice not so good. Or drinking a diet soda right after brushing with some minty toothpaste, bad idea.

I don’t understand why this matters. Some people eat what I would consider odd combinations of food and drink. Hey, if you like bologna and whipped cream, I say knock yourself out. I’m sure there are a few people out there who think I consume unusual food combos, too. But what I eat is my business.

Reportedly some pregnant women crave odd food combos. Can’t say from actual experience, though.
