Now this is a fun game!

So I saw this on Very Good Taste and thought it looked like fun, so I'm playing a long. It's a list of 100 food items that this blogger feels should be eaten by everyone. I was surprised by how much I've eaten off of this list.

If you'd like to play along:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold or Italicize all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

I put my answers in bold and italics, and since I believe in trying everything at least once, I didn't feel the need to cross anything off. Obviously, some of these things I've eaten were in pre-vegaquarian years...

Wow... for all that I consider myself a gourmet (albeit not particularly adventurous with meat types) I've only had 13 of those!

Maybe I need to see a hypnotist about eating unusual meats... Lol!
