53. Abalone (MBF.)
54. Paneer (On Indian restaurants. Yummy.)

56. Spaetzle
57. Dirty gin martini (...I don't think I have. Ah well.)
58. Beer above 8% ABV (I don't like beer. Unlikely I'll ever try.)
59. Poutine (...you mean the Russian President? Unlikely. [Well hee hee.] Might try it sometime.)
60. Carob chips (MBF. I've eaten dog chocolate, though...)
61. S'mores (Hey, it's something sweet. What do you expect.)
62. Sweetbreads (Can you get them in Finland? I thought they're considered just waste.)
63. Kaolin (You have to taste everything, I suppose... Tasted like clay.)
64. Currywurst (Guess MBF again.)
65. Durian (Now this MUST be fixed. I've only had some Durian candy.)
66. Frogs' Legs (MBF. I'll try anything.)
67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake (Beignets, churros and "tippaleipä".)
68. Haggis (I liked it. Better than the Finnish variant. Spicier.)
69. Fried plantain (Only bananas. MBF.)
70. Chitterlings, or andouillette (Tasted, didn't like much.)
71. Gazpacho (Favourite summer food.)
72. Caviar and blini (Well, close enough to real caviar as to no difference.)
73. Louche absinthe
74. Gjetost, or brunost (Mmmmmmm.)
75. Roadkill (The police would sell roadkill deer and elk on the spot; I've never managed to be there. Lucky, perhaps.)
76. Baijiu (Someone going to China soonish...?)
77. Hostess Fruit Pie (I don't think so. Then again if I have, it wasn't that remarkable.)
78. Snail (Mmmmm, escargots. In garlic butter. *drool*)
79. Lapsang souchong (My favourite wintertime tea.)
80. Bellini (MBF, eventually.)

84. Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant (MBF!!!)
85. Kobe beef (MBF.)
86. Hare (And rabbit. There's a difference in taste.)
87. Goulash
88. Flowers (Roses and violets and mint and thyme and elder and rowan and...)
89. Horse (In sausages. Wonder if you could get some meat from the market hall?)
90. Criollo chocolate (Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!)
91. Spam (Not this variant. Other such, yes ["nötkötti"].)

97. Lobster Thermidor (Your usual MBF.)
98. Polenta (MBF. I can't understand why I haven't yet tasted this.)
99. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee (I don't like coffee. Unlikely.)
100. Snake (MBF.)

Well, there's still something to expect. I still wonder why some of the foods were on the list and some weren't, but I guess anyone can make a must list of their own.

If you're in Finland, you can probably get root beer from Stockmann (at least you can in Estonia). It's A&W. (:

And I'm glad to see there are other people who like lapsang souchong. I get odd looks and comments about drinking tar.
