Found this randomly on the net, pretty interesting. It's slightly biased towards british food, but whatever.

Don't worry if you haven't, mind you; neither have I, though I'll be sure to work on it. Don't worry if you don't recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

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) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

Low 70's. I readily admit I don't know what some of those things are, and the rest, well, I don't intend to voluntarily find out.

I'm only at 52, I think, I eat out a ton and have likely forgotten a few. A lot of those really aren't all that great or uncommon.

And FWIW, gator tastes better than crocodile. I believe it's the increased amount of time that crocs spend in saltwater.

Furthermore, that list is pretty Eurocentric - no raccoon or opposum.

BTW - after a cursory glance, I'm probably around 50-ish.

Make that 46.

Mid 60's for me. Pio I'd be curious to know which ones you haven't had.

91. 7 of the ones I haven't tried I don't know what they are. a couple, like haggis, I have had a chance to try and have decided not to. several, like "whole insects" I have tried only to be able to say I have. a few, notably "black pudding" I have had by mistake and didn't like.

Can people with high scores post what they have not had from the list?

77. In fact, epoisses I had for the first time on Saturday. It was interesting, and while I enoyed it, I doubt I will be buying it anytime soon.

A couple I had to look up before I was sure it was something I had eaten
