I was a bit off-put with that too, but after you log in to FB, you have the option to post or not, it still gives you your total. Though I suppose you could do it the old fashioned way and just count the items!

Did something say 20 was normal or the average?
I'm trying to figure out where Jenny came up with that.

Yes. See the OP. Seems like there are way too many ordinary things on the list (ribs, bread pudding, root beer float) to average out to 20.

65 for me, there were a few combos that had something I don't like by itself (like root beer in particular) so I would never try and quite a few things I would try but have never had access to like durian and kangaroo as 2 examples I can remember. The cactus pears I've seen in grocery just don't look appetizing to me (I think they are over-ripe, don't really know but that's what they look like to me, mushy kind of). I just can't get past even the thought of frog legs, chittlins and snake, though I've had people try to talk me into them, but I do eat and love escargot, just my quirk I guess.

49.... but I have to admit, I don't know some of these things and didn't want to translate...
so maybe I ate them, but don't know, because they were german ;o)

66 for me. This really surprised me. I thought it would be more.

I did it again and I came up with 27. Half of those things I've never heard of. Believe me, if my husband did this he would probably come up with 10!!!

PS: I went back and did it based on what I think my husband would have had and I got 15. He's better than I thought.

There are some perfectly normal things on the list that just don't appeal to me, such as a rootbeer float or a moon pie.
