Sweet 100

I had thought about doing that popular blog thingie, "The Omnivore's Hundred", which listed 100 foods which "every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life." Even if Clay (who will try anything in any country at least once) helped, I don't think we could have made a very good dent on that list. So, I was reading cakespy, and saw their Sweet 100 -- much more fun! Here is goes!

How many have you tried? If you'd like, feel free to follow the same guidelines:
1) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2) Bold all of the sweets you've eaten--or make them a different type color.
3) Cross out any of them that you'd never ever eat. (3A) I made everything I have ever made pink)
4) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your "To Do" List.

Also, on cakespy, they have links to almost all the sweets, so you can look up anything you don't know about; I have not had/made macarons like the ones listed, just the kind of macaroons you make with coconut and a can of sweetened condensed milk. But, I found that I have had kulfi (at our local Indian restaurant) and Concha (at one of the Guadalupe celebrations)
5) Optional: Post a comment at cakespy linking to your results--or just post a comment letting us know how many you've tried, or what you're going to try next!
