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.
