Food Adventures

Saw this on another blog and was surprised at how adventurous my tastebuds are! I’m fortunate to have completed a lot on this list due to my travels on business trips or vacations…the ones that are left either I haven’t heard of or wouldn’t rule out completely…with the exception of roadkill, horse and insects of course.

Here’s what I want you to do:

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 linking to your results.

I am VERY impressed with your extensive food experience. Meanwhile, I am nearly 30 and my most exotic food foray was recently trying a chai latte! :)

Did you eat ACTUAL sweetbreads, or are you talking about cinnamon rolls here? If you ate actual sweetbreads…then kudos to you for having a seriously strong stomach!!!
