The Perfect Pairings

A list of Butler County's perfect pairings and dynamic duo's

1. Ralph & Alice

Butler County's favorite pair of Bald Eagles! 

Ralph & Alice

 Named after the popular 50's sitcom The Honeymooners, Ralph and Alice are quite the duo. They have been nesting in Butler County for six years now and have developed a large fan base intrigued by their playful nature. 

2. Cookies & Milk

Of course!   

Le Macaron, Liberty Center Ohio

Another great pair? Cookies and milk! Some of my favorites are the raspberry or chocolate cookies from IKEA, the cookie sandwich from Chubby Bunny Bakery, or a pair of macarons from Le Macaron

3. ______ & Dip

Chips and dip, veggies and dip, fruit and dip... this pair has endless possibilities.

My go-to dips are the hummus blends from Chickpea Chicks— Perfect for chips, veggies, pretzels and more. If you're a spinach-artichoke fan, Matt the Miller's Tavern has amazing chips and spinach-artichoke dip that can't be beat. 

4. Candy & Toys

They just go hand-in-hand. 


When you ask a kid what they want for any holiday, the answer is typically always toys and candy, which makes them a perfect pair. Butler County is home to TWO real life candy lands... Henry's Candy Co. and Grandpa Joe's Candy Shop! Find the perfect combo for a gift, birthday party, or just a special treat. 

5. Hamburger & Fries

Do you ever have one without the other?

The Jug, Middletown Ohio

The Jug is a historic staple in Middletown, and a popular local favorite. There's no question why— their juicy burgers and crinkle cut fries are classic and delicious.

6. Wings

You can't fly with just one wing! 

Kelsey Montague Mural, Liberty Center Ohio

Liberty Center is home to two Kelsey Montague murals that are apart of her #WhatLiftsYou campaign. Check out this beautiful mural of a pair of whimsical wings that is complete with Southwestern Ohio staples interwoven into each wing— like Skyline Chili, Cincinnati Zoo's Fiona, and Liberty Center shopping bags.

7. Tacos & Tuesdays

Although any day is a great taco day, right?

Tacos at Agave & Rye

Taco Tuesday anyone? I'm not sure when this trend started, but it really is a dynamic duo. A lot of restaurants will celebrate too, with discounts and specials... and Butler County is full of great Taco Tuesday spots

8. Cincinnati & Chili 

Any Southwest Ohio native will know. 

Skyline Chili

Skyline Chili is kind of a big deal around here. Known as the official chili of Cincinnati, you can stop in for their signature dishes with their special Cincinnati chili recipe. Fans will rave about their 3-Way Chili Spaghetti, Cheese Coneys and Oyster Crackers. You can find a Skyline Chili in any town around Butler County. 

9. Sweet & Salty

The ultimate flavor duo!

Ruby's Chocolates Ohio

Nothing beats a dessert with the perfect balance of sweet and salty. Salted caramels, chocolate covered pretzels, or my personal favorite... the Bacon Brownie Truffle Cake from Ruby's Chocolates.

10. Donuts & Donut Holes

Because together... they are complete.
