Foodstuffs meme

So I’m breaking my usual “no memes” rule for this one. Because it’s interesting.
— yoinked from dogs_n_rodents

The rules of the meme:
1) Bold those you have tried
2) strikethrough those you wouldn’t eat on a bet.
3) Italicize any item you’ll never eat again.
4) Put an asterisk next to any items you’d be interested in trying but have not yet.
