100 Foods to Try Before You Die

Technically this should bee called 100 Foods & Drinks, since it has several beverages on it, but whatever. A friend had this on Facebook, and I was interested to see how many I had already eaten. (There may have been some intensive Googling, since I didn’t even know what some of them were) Turns out I am already nearly halfway there, sitting at 49 tried and tasted. I doubt I will ever get to the full 100, since some of these I just have no interest in eating/drinking/getting anywhere near my mouth. But it’s fun.

    1. I may have just had to Google baba ghanoush to see what exactly it actually is, and it does sound tasty. I will be on the lookout for it.

      I’ve had brandy before (not a huge fan, not gonna lie), and apparently cognac is just a special kind of brandy. But I don’t think the brandy I had counts.
