Omnivore's Hundred

This is a game for omnivore’s which I found on Real Life Living. It’s called the Omnivore’s Hundred, and it is a list of 100 items that one may or may not have eaten.

The rules are simple:

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.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at Very Good Taste linking to your results.

The ants were barely worth the bother if I'm honest, cheap chocolate with a gritty bit in the middle. Ditto with the Lobster Thermidor. I'm convinced all that gussying up is just to hide the fact that the lobster maybe wasn't that fresh to begin with.

My favourite is possibly the Tom Yum only because the weather here is so changeable I normally spend most of the year with the sniffles and this stuff clears them right up. But then Churros and hot chocolate rock too.

Feel free to pilfer everyone, I know I did:)


  1. What? No Pocky?!

    Seriously, you have a strong list going there. Better than mine, I think.

  2. I'd no idea what Pocky was and had to Google it. I'm a bit like you, I'll try anything, but a lot of the things listed just aren't easy to come by here.

    I'll have to travel more, yep that's what I'll do.


Your comments make me smile. I love that you stopped by.
