100 Foods to Eat Before You Die

Whoever put this list together originally and put it on Facebook shall be called “they.” So, they think most people will have only tried 20 of these food items or less. Before I read the list I thought I’d keep it around until they’re all crossed off. After reading through it, I think not. There are several on there (particularly drinks and seafood) which I hope to avoid.
