The Omnivore’s 100 — My Take

I first learned of this list from the blog yumyumyummers, but it was originally published at very good taste:

Directions

– copy this list into your blog, including these instructions.
– boldface all items you’ve eaten before.
– cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
