100 Foods to try before you die

13 Feb

A month or so ago, I saw this list on someone’s Facebook post. I don’t know where the list originated, but I copied and pasted it into a word document so that I could look at it “later” and see how I fared. Tonight seems to be “later” and I just went through and checked off all of the foods I’ve had from the list. I scored 30 out of 100. I honestly expected to score better (and no, I did not want to score 100!!)

Some of the foods I’d never heard of and some of them I’d heard of, tried and not liked. Others are definitely a regional dish. There were combo dishes I’ve had separately but never together like chicken and waffles for example.

But I’m curious…how do you fare?
