~I thought I'd hit like 10 on this list but I also got half. A third of those things are incredibly mundane like polenta(cornmeal mush), sauerkraut and spam. Hasn't everyone had those?
I must say, MOST of those things I had as a kid. My parents were adventurous and I was along for the ride. Things like raw oysters and squirrel appeared on my childhood table but I never would have tried those as an adult. :/ ~

I agree, the list could be improved as some of the items are way too common. I've had 49 of them, and I'm not THAT adventurous with regard to food.

I used to think I was a reasonably adventurous eater but I'm being left in the dust, here and on another forum where I posted this list. I better get in gear!

I've always sort of wondered about plantains. Do they taste like anything else? Are they sweet, tart, or what?

Plantains have a rather starchy mild flavor. I've only heard of them being mildly sweet when they are super black/ripe.

I've only had them fried and wonder how they would be roasted next time I make them.
