Flavor combinations that make you swoon?

In this world, there are a few flavor combinations that are shockingly delicious to me.

butternut squash/sage/onion
cardamom/ginger (especially in cookies and ice cream)
candied walnut/goat cheese

I love all kinds of food, but these are some of the combos that make me salivate even when I'm already filled to the brim with food. I know they aren't particularly unusual, but I do believe that they have become classics for a reason. They're just shockingly good!

What do others find irresistable? I'm wondering about flavors that just seem to be made for each other, which together suddenly become so much more than the sum of their parts (ex: I love candied walnuts, and goat cheese is good, but I can control myself until you put them together--then I can't stop til I've eaten a pound of each).
