I started hearing about this list just a little bit ago. Then my girls over on What’s Cooking were buzzing about it. It sounded intriguing. It was really interesting to go through and take a sort of an inventory of the foods I’ve tried, haven’t tried, and never would try. I consider myself a very adventurous eater, but a few of these got me!
Have you done your Omnivore’s Hundred? If not, hop on over to Very Good Taste and get to work! You are supposed to go through the list and bold or highlight the items you have eaten. Then you cross out or note the items you would not even try. As the blog says, if you don’t know what some of these are, Wikipedia does!My score–54. I guess I’ve still got lots of new things to try!The Omnivore’s Hundredseen on Very Good Taste
