Holy moly, I think I've eaten about 99.4176 percent of the stuff on this list. That either makes me a gourmand or just very, very piggy. This will be a fun post for tomorrow, thanks!

Ive never heard of some of these things - I guess that makes me a very reserved eater :)

I'm up. Sort of surprised. I changed the PLUS marks to YES or NO to make it easier to read.

K9 said...

no im not adventurous. my friend invites us to dinner and says "tell K9 we've got some mac and cheese on hand too so not to worry" grrherherha

i like surprises. but not food surprises. on survivor i would jump off anything into water, run through fire, outlast and outwit but i when it comes to eating the weird thing for the team? i would be voted off.

i have eaten insects though. lots of them. chocolate coating helped.

Cat (Korea)
Snapping Turtle
Dried squid
cuttlefish

I did give the fried ants and cooked cicadas in Korea a pass. In fact I dubbed the cicadas "Roacharoni"

Hope you don't mind, but I linked to you...

WHOA...akshully, I'se eaten much of this--unless rabbit doan count fer hare, and I cain't manage 26, so I'se lightly tried 31 & 34. Passed on the ceegar that goes wif 36. Doan know waht 52 be, nor really 15...but I think I can guess!

The Java Junkie said...

Aunty, 50 is an Asian plum paste, and 15 is, well...go to NYC and grab a hot dog from a street vendor... Soooo tasty!

With regard to hare, I've never had it either, but I've been told that it is very gamy and tough, and must be stewed for a long time before it's edible...
