The Vegetarian's 100

So this went around the blogs long ago as The Omnivore's 100. Basically, a list of foods that everyone should eat at one time. I have a draft post around of the meme, but as a vegetarian there was a lot on it I was not going to eat. So I was excited when I saw the Vegetarian's 100. I can't remember where I saw it on my blogroll, but I got this version from Feeding Maybelle. If you want to know what any of these are (I didn't know a bunch of them) see the original link. Also, there is apparently nothing I wouldn't try once!

Here are the rules:
1. Copy the list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2. Bold all the items you’ve eaten
3. Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4. Optional extra: post a comment on Very Good Taste, linking to your results.

You've eaten syllabub! Remember, you came over and ate the onion pie (and I think R and I had a "meat pye"), and we had the brandied pears and syllabub (the rosewater-flavored whipped cream). Or was it the time we had the baked pupton of apples and sweet cubes of jellied milk? I can't remember
