Very interesting! I can't believe that you didn't like brunost! I ate that everyday at least 2 times a day for a year, and I miss it so much! :)

Thanks for doing it! I love reading people's takes on this list!

Yeah, what can I say? It wasn't my cup of tea! My ex, with whom I travelled to Norway, however, loved the stuff and bought it regularly in Canada for $9 a block at a specialty cheese shop in Ottawa.

It is so interesting to read all the different tales on this list...
I am frightened/proud of how much I have tried. I borrowed the list from you so I could play along...

Unknown said...

FTR I meant to cross out roadkill and italics appeared instead... one thing I don't think I coudl bring myself to try....

Cakespy said...

I'm rather impressed, you've made quite a bit of progress! It looks like I need to get more adventurous! Though I have to say I am disappointed that I don't see at least 50 more cakes on the list. (kidding!)

Cakespy: Maybe I should do up a dessert version, eh?
