Alligator, Dandelion Wine, Haggis and Kangaroo where the only things that I have not tried... I guess I'm more adventurous in food then I think I am... I think I'll need to find these foods now, the Dandelion Wine sounds super interesting!

Mahalo (thanks) mjb!

I've had the haggis and can't say I'm a fan. Never had Kangaroo.

@phatch both my mother and sister have had Haggis on a trip they took together, but when I asked then both what it tasted like, they both just said, "YUCK, terrible"  

I need more than just two word descriptions :look:

I had a cajun seasoned alligator skewer at a festival here in Salt Lake.  Tried some dandelion wine back in Indiana.  Would love to try abalone, prickly pear  and fugu.  Wait a minute - I have some pickled cactus in the fridge. I bet it is prickly pear - that makes 73 for me.

 

Hostess fruit pie?  Moon Pie?  Really?  Why are they on the list??

I wouldnt attempt fugu until i find an excellent sushi man. 

Aside from the extremely lethal poison , i have heard its pretty bland XD.

I guess having spent the majority of my life in Hawaii, with so many different cultures and their foods, it was an enriching way of life for sure!

Interesting list... didn't spend time to review all.  Notice they had oysters, but not Mountain Oysters. Should be added.

 

I lived in west Africa for a year when I was a kid.  My father, in the State Department, was the head of an economic development mission in Liberia; once we were invited to dinner at a village chief's home.  We had a nice meal of stew.  As we left, my father asked the chief what was in the stew and the chief replied "tree antelope."

 

Later my father told me we'd had monkey-meat stew. :eek:

 

That should be on the list, too.

My score was 87'. Apart from the puffer fish, the others all appear to be manufactured foods I've never heard of!smile.gif

I only scored 63, but kind of a random list of commercial products mixed with dishes.

Durian is delicious. It makes the best custardy sorts of deals you'll ever eat.

 

When fresh, just apply the same rule that you would with certain French cheeses- don't take a massive whiff, just have a bite.

 

That Frito pie thing on the other hand, had to look it up... I think I'd prefer crickets... or poutine.

It tastes alright, but its smell is is not the least bit pleasant. 

I am a very sensitive to odors, so its smell is always a turn off. 

 

I think they should have included pignolias on this list, since its just so random lol.

Hehe. 62 here and I do agree - a lot of the stuff I didn't know were some random commercial things.
