Omnivore’s One Hundred

Ok, I know, its a meme (of which I am not traditionally a fan) but this one I found interesting.  If you have questions about the list itself (and yes, I know it is decidedly anglo-centric), go here for answers.

Here’s the rules:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (The ones I really, really love are also in RED)
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk (the origin of the meme) linking to your results.
