100 things to try


A London-based blog Very Good Taste posted a list of 100 things that they think "every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life."

 

Here are the instructions:

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.

I got 11/100. Calamari, PBJ, hot dog, pistachio ice cream, oysters, root beer float, chicken tikki masala, Krispy Kreme, the 8%+ beer, catfish and polenta.

You don't even have to ask who this is.

I'd be interested in having the soft shell crab, fresh wild berries, the non-grape wine, and the goat's milk.

No, I've never had lox or a Big Mac, if that's your next question.
