Hi Linda

This looks like fun! I think No. 5 should read Langoustine (a small orange/pink lobster found in the North Eastern Atlantic ocean. Much like a prawn.

Cheers - Joolz

This is an interesting list. I did a similar list awhile back - the inclusion of certain foods seems to be very arbitrary!

Glad you took the plunge!!
The old dial-up is cooperating today and I managed to read ALL of your posts for the month! I feel very special today :P
I agree that the list was arbitrary..it morphed from the one I found a few months back on some blog..I lost it went I "dumped" the computer and restored it.
Must Google "Natto" soon...haven't the foggiest what it is!
Will do this - what a great list!

Well, Linda, I don't think your blog is boring at all!

In the States, I don't think we have Marmite/Vegemite, though I've heard friends from Scotland talk about it.

I've not had Gyoza, Ceviche, Mango lassi, frogs legs. Well, I guess there are many foods on this list I haven't had!

joolzmac above did a lovely post with a more detailed description of the foods. A lovely post to visit.

I think Vegemite was in the States, then got banned I think, possibly it is back on the shelves.

I like Promite too, especially on brown or wholemeal bread.
