Random food meme fun

So, I REFUSE to use Facebook applications, but I do so love a good meme – especially when it is food related. SO here is my post on the (fairly random) 100 Foods to Eat Before You Die list that I found via the interwebz. I have tried 87 of the 100 and after our trip to Hawaii later this year, I hope to also cross off durian as well! There are also Vegetarian 100 lists (http://www.tigersandstrawberries.com/2008/09/04/the-vegetarian-hundred/) and the Vegan 100 list (http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2008/08/21/the-vegans-hundred/) – both of which I am at almost 100%. See my list below and let me know how yours compares.
