Ganked from kaasirpent

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, or will never eat again.
4) italicize ones you haven't eaten but WANT TO TRY
5) Leave the ones you haven't tried, but are indifferent about

  1. Venison - I like game meats, in general. I've eaten not only normal European deer and elk, but things like impala and kudu and oryx.
  2. Nettle tea
  3. Huevos rancheros - I am not really crazy about eggs, for the most part but putting salsa on almost anything is a good idea.
  4. Steak tartare - I may have had this at a party once, but I'm not sure
  5. Crocodile/Alligator
  6. Black pudding - the thought of congealed blood is pretty repulsive
  7. Cheese fondue
  8. Carp
  9. Borscht - one of my favorite foods. Which is a good thing, since my mother once bought 12 cases (24 bottles per case) of it at our local public television station's auction
  10. Baba ghanoush - yum!
  11. Calamari
  12. Pho - not only have I eaten pho, I have eaten it at street stalls in Vietnam. And I have eaten it for breakfast at times.
  13. PB&J sandwich - oddly, I am not sure if I have ever had a PB&J. My family didn't eat peanut butter when I was growing up and, while I do eat peanut butter now, I rarely have any sort of jam or jelly.
  14. Aloo gobi - one of my favorite Indian dishes
  15. Hot dog from a street cart
  16. Époisses
  17. Black truffle

  19. Steamed pork buns
  20. Pistachio ice cream
  21. Heirloom tomatoes
  22. Fresh wild berries - Fresh off the vine. - we picked wild blackberries all the time when I was a kid. The stuff from supermarkets does not compare.
  23. Foie gras - the cruelty of its production is too big an obstacle
  24. Rice and beans
  25. Brawn or head cheese
  26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper - too painful to do again on their own, though they are useful in cooking
  27. Dulce de leche

  29. Baklava
  30. Bagna cauda
  31. Wasabi peas
  32. Clam chowder
  33. Salted lassi - surprisingly refreshing if it is very hot out
  34. Sauerkraut
  35. Root beer float - I detest root beer
  36. Cognac with a fat cigar - cognac is fine, but I have no desire to ever have a cigar
  37. Clotted cream tea
  38. Vodka jelly/Jell-O
  39. Gumbo
  40. Oxtail
  41. Curried goat

  43. Phaal - curry is good
  44. Goat’s milk
  45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more - I think the scotch I tasted at the party in June qualifies
  46. Fugu - I am a coward about that whole poison thing. I won't eat akee either. Though I do eat fiddleheads.
  47. Chicken tikka masala
  48. Eel
  49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut
  50. Sea urchin - the texture repels me
  51. Prickly pear
  52. Umeboshi - very tasty in small quantities
  53. Abalone - I might have had some in China, but I'm not sure.
  54. Paneer - in fact, I'm having mattar paneer (peas with paneer, which is an Indian sort of cheese) for supper tonight
  55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal
  56. Spaetzle
  57. Dirty gin martini - I can't imagine why one would add brine from olives to a martini, but I'm not a martini drinker to begin with
  58. Beer - I almost always sample the local beer when I travel
  59. Poutine - putting cottage cheese and gravy on french fries is just wrong on so many levels
  60. Carob chips
  61. S’mores
  62. Sweetbreads
  63. Kaolin - I thought this was eaten pretty much only by pregnant women in a few parts of the world
  64. Currywurst
  65. Durian - I have had durian ice cream and trying the actual fruit (despite the smell) has long been on my list of things to do
  66. Frogs’ legs
  67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake
  68. Haggis - The Last Drop, a pub in Edinburgh, makes delicious haggis
  69. Fried plantain - another favorite food
  70. Chitterlings, or andouillette - I can't imagine eating chitterlings, though andouillette doesn't sound too terrible
  71. Gazpacho
  72. Caviar and blini - I detest caviar. Give me my blini with just sour cream, please
  73. Louche absinthe - I have had araq that clouds in a similar manner, however
  74. Gjetost, or brunost - smoked cheese just doesn't do it for me
  75. Roadkill
  76. Baijiu - since the taste is reportedly like diesel fuel, I think I can forgo this alcoholic adventure
  77. Hostess Fruit Pie
  78. Snail
  79. Lapsang souchong - I drink lapsang souchong tea frequently. One of my former colleagues mocked me unmercifully about this, but I like it.
  80. Bellini
  81. Tom yum
  82. Eggs Benedict - I am not crazy about poached eggs to start with.
  83. Pocky

  85. Kobe beef
  86. Hare - rabbits are cute furry things.
  87. Goulash
  88. Flowers - I have eaten ice cream with rose petals in it and had salads with nasturtiums, for example. I think I've had candied violets, too.
  89. Horse - but I have eaten zebra
  90. Criollo chocolate
  91. Spam
  92. Soft shell crab - I may have had some soft shell crab tempura, but I can't remember
  93. Rose harissa - I like harissa and I like rose petals, so why not?
  94. Catfish - bony and muddy and entirely useless
  95. Mole poblano - anything containing both chocolate and garlic has to be good
  96. Bagel and lox
