I’ve (N.) completed my entry below … I scored 27 “shocking” considering what a picky eater I am. How about you?

Here’s what I want you to do:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Mark any items that you would never consider eating.

    I got to 27 too. By the way – haggis is really nice. Especially cut thin and fried crispy.

    I’d try most things given the chance except insects. I don’t think I’d cope with that unless I was totally desperate.

    I’m going to post my list tomorrow. How fun. I scored fairly well with 50 of the 100, but I grew up in Colombia, so that helped. I do need to eat a little more European & Asian foods, and perhaps drink a little more alcohol.
