Food List Challenge

So there is a challenge going around on Facebook to test if you are truly a foodie. The Food List Challenge gives you 100 items that they believe you should try before you die. They hypothesize that most people have tried less that 20 items on the list. I was a little dissapointed that I've only tried 41 items on the list. Being the food lover that I am, I thought I would have tried more!

I don't know where they came up with some of the items on the list. I feel like I am pretty adventurous and open with food, but I would never try things on the list like squirrel or snake. Suprisingly though, most of the things I've crossed off are some of my favorite foods like baklava, cheese fondue, chile rellano, churros, clam chowder, crab cakes...ok I could continue, but you get the point..I have a lot of favorites!!

Here are the items on the list. I've crossed off the ones I have tried. How did you score?

(Grew up on this stuff!)
(Definitely on my list to try)
(Also grew up on this stuff haha!)
(Heard this was disgusting...its basically blood that has been congealed..NO THANKS)
(One of my favorite things!!)
(Delicious late night snack!)
(This is no joke one on my favorite foods...ever)
(Can't be from New England and not like Clam Chowder)
(Another favorite of mine..)
  (Unagi sushi is one of my favorites)
(Anything fried like his is delicious!)
(I think its funny that I've never tried any hostess mom never bought fun things like this when I was a kid!)
(This is seriously the best thing EVER. Its an Indian yogurt drink. Mango Lassi is my absolute favorite!!)
(Surprisingly enough, I don't like lobster....)
67. Paneer (Love this stuff. Its used in a lot of Indian cooking...its a type of cheese. I don't discriminate with cheese..)
(A Vietnamese soup. One of my family's favorites.)
(I have this all the time for breakfast!)
(Prickly Pear Margaritas are awesome!!)
(Also another favorite....I have a lot of favorites haha)
(I've heard these are good fried)


  1. I scored a 63 -- so far. Not sure I'll get through all 100, but I'll give it a try!

    But for the record, black pudding? One of the best comfort foods I've ever known. And I was beyond grossed out by it the first time. It's got a bit of a clove-y taste to it, good spice -- slice it into 1/4' - 1/2' slices and pan-fry until it's super crispy on the outside and serve with eggs and ketchup. YUM!

    Also, spaetzle? I actually just made this at home for the first time ( -- so easy and a great side dish. I tossed mine with some fresh asparagus and lemon juice and zest, super fresh tasting :)

    1. Hey Lena! Thanks for the tip. The spaetzle looks like it would be a great spring/summer dish. I'll have to try it.
