I guess I have had over half of the list, probably more, but some of the things are a bit dopey eg "Sandwiches by me". Think I will happily ignore the whale items too... ;-)

The only things on that list that I haven't had are
Moreton Bay Bugs (have never been "down under")
Whale meat
whale blubber
Reindeer meat
Cream Tea ??? don't even know what that is!

of those that I have had, you can keep the haggis and the durian!

All but seven an dif you consider elk to be the same as reindeer - they are very similar six.

Some I have never heard of - like the Moreton Bay bugs and that fish I forget the name of.

As far as whale goes, would be happy to try it but doubt I will ever be anywhere I can get the chance. Same with durian.

I am not impressed by the list, think there may be many far more intiguing and tasty dishes that might have been included. And I am not talking about still beating cobra hearts or marinated pollack guts.

I've got 36/50.


And I agree that the list isn't very exciting overall. I definitely would like to try Baramundi some day.

I guess I am a very picky eater - I only got 22/50. And there weren't too many of the things I haven't eaten that I really want to try.

Hey, maybe each of us should make his/her own "Bucket List" of things we WANT to eat before we die!

Topping my list would be Kobe beef and truffles (the fungus kind). Otherwise, I think my list would be much more pedestrian.

For example, I've been saying for 20 years that I want to try a burger from Fuddrucker's (which is close to my house). Haven't made it over there yet.

would you say the same thing if whale blubber tasted anything like bacon? (not saying it does, cause I don't know, but IF it did.....)
