100 Food List Challenge

(I don't know what the heck is going on with the spacing in this post. I've tried fixing it several times now, to no avail. The OCD in me is freaking out! Lol)

I had seen this floating around for some time now...and finally got bored enough the time to check it out! The 100 Food List Challenge is a round-up of various food items, check off what you have tried, and see how you compare. Huge time waste but fun! Incidentally, I love lists...

I have eaten 61 out of 100 things! (They are in bold type.) I doubt that I'll ever knock everything off this list as I'm not much of a seafood eater, which is one of the very few things I won't eat. [Beets, milk, and hot, mushy fruit (think pies) round out the list.] And, about that snake...yeahhh, probably not.

That's a whole lot of eating. I'm interested in that dandelion wine and have always wanted to try rabbit. Oh, and while I dislike seafood but want to eat a sea urchin...mostly for revenge. I stepped on one while on a cruise last year and haven't forgotten it. *shakes fist* Anyway, share your list in the comments or by linking to your own list!

Is there anything on the list that you would NEVER try? 
Have you eaten any of these more unique foods and been pleasantly surprised?
