The Omnivore’s Hundred

I decided last night to do my omnivore’s hundred list. I am somewhat shocked by how many of these things I actually have tried. That being said many of these things I have had only once and that was enough. I think I may have to route some future traveling endeavors to locations where I might be able to fill in some more of this list. Even though I crossed some things out I am sure someone could get me to try it as long as they didn’t tell me what it was first. Some of these things I think I might be crazy for wanting to try, but I’ll try almost anything once.

If you want to join in, here are the rules:
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 www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
