The Omnivore's Hundred

This is kind of fun. I found this on a blog today. It's funny how many of these items I've eaten just because of friends I've made in the last few year. It's nice that many of my friends have broadened my horizons.

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. (Since I cannot cross it out, I'll just leave a note to the side.)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at linking to your results.
