Something just for fun, maybe a bit well..uneasy for some. The site Very Good Taste posted a list of 100 things that they felt every good omnivore should try at least once in his or her life. I was introduced to the list by Cathy at A Life Less Sweet.

My list of the foods I have tried are in bold and a few that I won’t try are crossed out! Blank I have not tried. I have also included a few comments.

Not quite sure what the criteria was for the list.


Copy this list into your blog, including these instructions.
Bold all items you’ve eaten.
Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
