So it looks like I'm 79 out of 100. Wow. Living in Japan helped out on a large part of the list though.

I've of course had clam chowder, but never from a sour dough bowl.
I've had absinthe but not the one listed here.
Don't even know what clotted cream tea is.
Not crazy enough to try a scotch bonnet raw.
Not sure what Kaolin is either.
Currywurst I've been dying to eat and will do so in Berlin in October.
And you ain't never getting me to smoke a cigar. So that's out.
Same with tomoatoes. No way.
Everything else, I just haven't had the chance to taste yet, but am looking forward to!

All in all, not too shabby!
