Interesting, I've eaten about 80 items on your list. Of those the Krispy Kreme and the Big Mac were the grossest ones. :)

I love our pho at the casino...I eat it at least once a week. My Mom fried spam when I was a kid it's been a long time, not sure I want to go back there.

Sarah Bott said...

What a fun list! I need to go through it with a fine collander comb.

And I love your new header--it's delish!

Cher said...

Now *this* is a meme worth doing! Though it did make me a little hungry...

I can help you with some of these. Black truffles, omg, worth it, so is good scotch. I had cognac with a fat cigar one New Year's Eve, but I don't think I could do it again.

Now, what is obviously needed is a trip to NYC. Where is Blogher next year? We need to have absinthe at Employees Only. http://www.employeesonlynyc.com/

And then the next day, caviar blinis in the Russian Tea Room.

I don't know what some things are, but I know I don't want Durian because it apparently stinks.

I've never had vodka jelly, but I'm guessing you could make it if anyone could! Is it like jello shots, except for toast?

I'm not at all surprised that you've tried so many. Do you have a list now of things you want to try?

I've got the black (that means blood, you know) pudding and the haggis covered. Not nearly as bad as you might think, but I never need to eat them again.

So which ones that you haven't eaten are planned for the future? Horse or cognac with a fat cigar?
