the omnivore's hundred: would you eat it?


Truffles? Blini? Insects? From the ridiculous to the sublime, Very Good Taste wants to know what you would eat. Their meme, The Omnivore’s Hundred (found via Voracious) has gone worldwide in very short time. It’s a list of 100 items that you answer if you’ve eaten, would eat, or would never eat, following some simple rules:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.

3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at Very Good Taste linking to your results.

My list is below — we’d love to see yours! –Mary T.
