The Omnivore’s Hundred

I've seen this list on a few blogs, and have also had it emailed to me. The Omnivore’s Hundred is a list of 100 things
that every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food - but a good omnivore should really try it all.

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.

Great list and photo... I can't begin to describe how disgusting black pudding is.

Salted lassis are difficult to get used to but everyone seemed to prefer them to sweet lassis in India, which surprised me.

How did you avoid frog legs in France? :)

Errr. I haven't had probably about 75-80% of the things on this could be because i don't know all the name for foods in english! But pretty impressive, Gillian, I must say.

but not having Krispy Kreme D is a disgrace! if even such a food ignorant like me had them...")

What a wonderful and telling photo! Guess you were born to be a foodie:-)

I've done this list before - it's fun to see just how adventurous we've been!

In Hawaii we grew up on Hostess fruit pies and Spam:-) Umeboshi (Ume) too (inside Musubi - rice wrapped with nori . . .and sometimes w/spam in there too). My mom used to have a jar she'd keep in the fridge for years!!
