Everyone else did it so I had to too…

This has been floating around a ton of food blogs lately…I just had to join the fun!

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.

    I am not as adventurous! and also an ameteur apparently, didn’t know what half of these were! I wonder if someone on the other side of the world would be wondering about Spam, Hostess, and Krispy Creme like Americans wonder about haggis and epoisses and the like!
