Food Meme

Borrowed copiously from Not An Artist:

The Omnivore's Hundred is a list of foods the gastronomic Andrew Wheeler thinks everyone should try at least once in their lives.

The rules of the meme: bold those you have tried, italicize the ones you would try, and strikethrough those you wouldn't eat on a bet.

True to form. No fish, organs, or leaves. Also, no one that I've had for a pet. So I'd better hurry up and try curried goat before I get a pet goat because once I've been friends with one, it'll be all over. No insects (on purpose—I can't help it if they fly into my mouth before I swallow). Nothing made from hooves and hides (lox). Nothing containing lips and @$$holes (hot dogs). And the snake thing? Uh... crocs, snakes, lizards... maybe I should update it to No Lizards, Gizzards, Fish or Leaves.
