Foodie? Prove It

Fried Alligator
A fellow foodie friend posted an app she'd found on facebook. It's a checklist of 100 top foods to eat before you die. Apparently, according to the application, (which we know can be as factual as this weeks tabloids) most people have only tried 20 (or less) of these 100 foods.

I've had 63... Does that mean it's okay to call myself a foodie? :)

  1. What?! You've never had borscht before? I can't beileive it. That's too bad, because it's really good and healthy for you. But you make up for it with Pocky. : )

  2. I have tried 55! I think I liked all of them that I tried except for absinthe...with I had at a dive bar in Spain. I took the shot, ran outside and puked! I'd like to try more of these things...and maybe learn what some of them even are!
