Omnivore's Hundred

I'm finally catching up to the rest of the food blogging world and filling out this list. The idea is to explore how many of these important foodstuffs you've managed to experience, and to set some goals for future consumption.
Here goes!

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.
