1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

1. Venison (Although it was when I was younger, so I can't really remember the taste well.
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos rancheros (I'm not completely sure what these are, though I could guess.)
4. Steak tartare Struck out not for taste or whatever but because I'd have problems with something that could kill me because it didn't happen to be cooked. (I MIGHT consider it if I seriously trusted both the people who raised it and prepared it or whatever, but slight chance).
5. Crocodile
6. Black pudding (I'm close on the striking this one, I'm not much for blood. Gah.)
7. Cheese fondue (I'm not sure if I've had this, gonna say no, because I can't remember specifically)
8. Carp (Again not sure... I know I've had tons of different fish we used to catch, but I can't remember if carp was one of the local ones.)
9. Borscht (Hate beets. Ugh.)
10. Baba ghanoush (Also not sure what this is)
11. Calamari
12. Pho (I guess I should look some of these up, huh?)
13. PB&J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi (Ditto on the looking up thing...)
15. Hot dog from a street cart Well, from fair/festival carts... close enough, right?
16. Epoisses (I speak fair French and still don't know this one)
17. Black truffle (Would maybe consider just to try but... I'm not a mushroom fan.)
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes (Mmmm strawberry wine mmmm)
19. Steamed pork buns
20. Pistachio ice cream
21. Heirloom tomatoes (I don't THINK I've had these in the past, and I hate raw tomatoes (or cooked, or in most things other than ketchup and pasta-type sauces)
22. Fresh wild berries
23. Foie gras
24. Rice and beans
25. Brawn, or head cheese (I MIGHT try it but I'd be hesitant. I can't say I'd never consider it though.)
26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper (Also close to being struck out because I'm not a pepper fan. If this is a very hot one, consider it struck. Not a hot foods fan, either.)
27. Dulce de leche (Wha?)
28. Oysters (I THINK I've tried them when I was little, and remember not liking them. I'm not a mussel/clam/oyster fan AT ALL.)
29. Baklava
30. Bagna cauda
31. Wasabi peas
32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl (See comment on oysters.)
33. Salted lassi
34. Sauerkraut
35. Root beer float
36. Cognac with a fat cigar (Don't smoke, don't want to start.)
37. Clotted cream tea
38. Vodka jelly/Jell-O
39. Gumbo
40. Oxtail
41. Curried goat
42. Whole insects (Urgh. I could maybe see myself at least trying it, on a special occasion, so I won't strike it. But ugh.)
43. Phaal
44. Goat’s milk
45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more
46. Fugu (See comment on foods killing me. I'm a wuss.)
47. Chicken tikka masala (I've had chicken tikka, but masala? I don't know.)
48. Eel
49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut
50. Sea urchin
51. Prickly pear
52. Umeboshi
53. Abalone - (See oysters comment. Again.)
54. Paneer
55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal (I actually prefer the plainer cheeseburgers and stuff. And would prefer chicken over any of the burger type things.)
56. Spaetzle
57. Dirty gin martini
58. Beer above 8% ABV
59. Poutine
60. Carob chips
61. S’mores (Mmm oh HELL yes.)
62. Sweetbreads
63. Kaolin
64. Currywurst
65. Durian
66. Frogs’ legs
67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake Not sure on the beignets, but HELL YES on the others... mmm...)
68. Haggis
69. Fried plantain
70. Chitterlings, or andouillette
71. Gazpacho
72. Caviar and blini
73. Louche absinthe
74. Gjetost, or brunost
75. Roadkill (Well, not unless it was roadkill along the lines of "a deer ran into our car, didn't mangle itself TOO horribly but died of the injuries, and we immediately picked it up and brought it along.")
76. Baijiu
77. Hostess Fruit Pie
78. Snail
79. Lapsang souchong (You may have noticed I've stopped noting the ones I have no idea what the hell they are...)
80. Bellini
81. Tom yum
82. Eggs Benedict
83. Pocky
84. Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant
85. Kobe beef
86. Hare
87. Goulash
88. Flowers (I don't THINK I've eaten candied rose hips or anything, but wouldn't have an objection, as long as I knew they were something edible.)
89. Horse
90. Criollo chocolate
91. Spam (Dude, I was raised in the Appalachians. Must you even ask?)
92. Soft shell crab (Which is probably sad since I live in Maryland, but enh. I've eaten king crab legs and liked them, but don't think I've eaten the other type.)
93. Rose harissa
94. Catfish
95. Mole poblano
96. Bagel and lox (Bagel yes, lox no.)
97. Lobster Thermidor
98. Polenta
99. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee
100. Snake

As you can probably tell, I'm not too adventurous in what I eat usually and don't may much attention to food as a whole - not because it's "icky" or whatever, but because I'm too damn picky and there's too much I just can't stand to eat because of taste, or texture, or what have you.
