Impromptu Post: How many of these things have you tried?

Normally, we're not big on memes over here at BURP! But, those people over at Eat Wisconsin lured me into this. (truth: it seemed like fun)

So, here's the drill.
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Crossout any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at linking to your results.

If you're wondering about the "whole insects"... I was eight, and it was on a dare.
And Peef has had Spam, but I have not, nor would I want it to be known that I had. But Peef insists that we should have it in bold because he has had it enough times to count for me as well.

Really, I'd try anything -- so that's why you'll note that nothing is crossed out.

I am a bit scared of dying from ill-prepared fugu, though... does that count?

And I'm not SURE if I've unintentionally eaten kaolin, but I'm going to say that if I'm not aware of it, it doesn't count.

  1. what a fun post. You have to try a Bellini. Super yummy.

  2. I'm at 67 but I think you're doing really well. I think you are quite the gormet!

  3. You can keep the insects... I'll help with the Spam in exchange!

  4. Awesome! Thanks for sharing your list! I think it is great to be so adventurous in food!

  5. You're brave trying a raw Scotch Bonnet pepper! I don't even know what Epoisses and I'm scared to find out. :)

  6. Amanda - Yeah, I thought this was fun too.

    Cathy - I was actually surprised at how many I could mark off. But 67 is impressive!

    KatieZ - Trust me, the insects weren't impressive!

    Jenn - My thoughts exactly. I'm thinking about what to eat next!!

    Dragon - Oh, I did warn you that we're chile-heads, right? :) Epoisses is freakishly smelly, but really delicious. If you have the chance, you should try it!!
