How many of those on the list have you eaten? Which ones would you NEVER eat? 
I have eaten 93 out of the possible 100. Only thrown up 5, I think. I would advise you all to never accept steetbreads, haggis, Spam, Sea Urchin, Head Cheese and Durian. Chitlans sound gross. 

What would top your list of things to eat before you die? 
OOOH A meal prepared by Chef Gordon Ramsay? Thai Food in Thailand? Some Coq au Vin in France? mmmm. It appears there is not much I wont eat.
