This was going around the Blogverse back in late 2008. I am reposting because it is fun. The foods I’ve tried since are in GREEN. What’s on your food list?

This seems to be doing the rounds amongst the blogs and it’s been interesting reading what people have eaten. It was all started by Andrew at Very Good Taste. As someone has said, “You are what you eat.” I love interactive blogs.

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.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at verygoodtaste.
