Foodie Lists

The Omnivore's Hundred is a list of foods the gastronome Andrew Wheeler thinks everyone should try at least once.
The rules of the meme:
Bold those you have tried.
Strikethrough those you wouldn't eat on a bet.
Italicize any item you'll never eat again.
Asterisk any items you'd be interested in trying but have not yet.
Under line anything you don't know what it is.
