From Cakespy:

Recently, a website called Very Good Taste started something of an internet fire with a list called “The Omnivore’s Hundred”, which listed 100 foods which “every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life.” We liked the idea, and inspired by the vegan variation on Hannah Kaminsky’s site, we thought—why not make our own Sweet 100!? Like the original, our list includes “fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food”—but in our universe, it’s all sweet! (In case any of them are foreign to you, links to pictures and recipes are included; also, for any vegans, feel free to go through the list assuming it’s a vegan counterpart). How many have you tried?

I’ve had a lot of different desserts in my life, thanks to working in a bakery in high school and growing up in an internationally diverse community.  Plus, I really, really like dessert. smile  See my list below.

 

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.
4) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your “To Do” List.
5) Optional: Post a comment here 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!
