The Omnivore’s Hundred – Johnny Rollerfeet


The Omnivore’s Hundred is a list of foods the gastronomic Andrew Wheeler thinks everyone should try at least once in their lives. (Be sure to read the FAQ.)

The rules of the meme:
Bold those you have tried.
Strikethrough those you wouldn’t eat on a bet.
Italicize any item you’ll never eat again.
Asterisk any items you’d be interested in trying but have not yet. *

1 I’m a Southern country boy. Some foodstuffs come with the territory and I really shouldn’t get credit for them.
