How Adventurous are Your Eaters?Casey Mullins
Have you seen the app going around on Facebook that has you answer how many “adventurous foods” you’ve tried? It’s called the Food List Challenge and it claims that most people have tried less than 20 of the 100 listed foods, I have tried 43 of them and have several friends that ranked higher than me. I’ve had the opportunity to try more, but let’s be honest, chitlins aren’t really a “must try” in my lifetime.
I consider Addie a pretty adventurous eater thanks to the kiss it, lick it, bite it technique so I decided to answer the survey with her as well.
How did my little seven year old fare on the 100 food challenge?
To be fair some of the foods listed are “BBQ Ribs, Root Beer Float and S’mores.” Maybe if you sent the list around worldwide those would be odd foods to have tried but here in Indiana? They’re staples of a well rounded treat assortment.
The most unusual food she gets completely geeked over is seaweed salad from almost any Japanese restaurant. It’s basically seaweed pickled in vinegar and toasted sesame oil, I love the stuff as well.
I’m not so sure they’re “less than 20” estimate is accurate if my somewhat picky seven year old is at 20, but perhaps we’re simply more adventurous than other people on facebook.
Have you taken the quiz? What was your score? What about your kids? If not, what’s the strangest thing they love to eat?
Be fascinated by her blog! (Well, no promises there.)
