The Omnivore's Hundred

Here is a list detailing 100 foods every omnivore should try. I got the idea from my new favorite food blogger Someone's in the Kitchen with Brina.

The official rules are:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (I put them in red)
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating. (I will try anything once, so nothing is crossed out for me)
