I counted a moon pie I had in a restaurant that was absolutely amazing, with made with house-made cookies and marshmallow creme.

I thought it was about what foods you have tried, not tried and liked. That's how I did it. I tried an oyster once and never again. TB eats them when I am not around because I can't even stand the smell!

I've had 87. Some of the things I wasn't familiar with - for instance Pavlova or a Bellini. Nor do I consider them on my list of "foods to eat before you die".

Other things I've tried would be good additions to the list: horse meat, chocolate covered ants, or bear.

It is. At least, I thought so I don't like oysters, either, but I have tried them.

Just so people know, after you check the boxes for the foods you've tried and click to see your total, it shows you your total on the second page, but you don't have to click again to post on Facebook.

My count is 88. I must admit that a few items on the list were my attempts, such as phaal, dandelion wine, paneer, and pho, among others. The only absinthe I have had is the Americanized version.
There is nothing on the list that I wouldn't try given the opportunity.

I went over the list again and realized that I have had Umeboshi (pickled plumb) and recently its Korean counterpart (don't know what it's called)

I've also had braised rabbit many times -- that's sorta rabbit stew.

So I've had 94.

But, like LP, I tried some just to see what they tasted like (cricket, snake, chitins) but would probably not eat again. I actually sort of like durian.

Durian isn't too bad, if you can get past the smell!

I answered it as foods I have tried, not liked. I've had chicken and I've had waffles, but never together, so I didn't count it.

73 for me. I had thought my total would be higher. Just goes to show how much more there is to be explored!
