Sweet 100

Today is start of a new month but it is also my 100th post!!! In honor of this occassion, I am doing a Sweet 100!!

I got this idea from Cakespy . They found a website called Very Good Taste who started a list called "The Omnivore's Hundred", which listed 100 foods which "every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life."

Cakespy liked the idea and thought--why not make a Sweet 100!? Like the original, the list includes "fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food" but it's all sweet!

So the question that they ask is 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) Change color of all of the sweets you've eaten!


3) Cross out any of them that you'd never ever eat.


4) Consider anything that is black 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!

Congrats on the 100th post. That list looks wonderful. I'm tempted to give it a try but I just started Weight Watchers and am doing well and don't want to jinx myself. So if it's OK I'll just follow your list.

Jennifer said...

That's a fun list! I've tried most everything on there--though there are a few I've never heard of--Dixie Cup? Joe Froggers? I wouldn't cross anything off either b/c I'll try anything!

This was so appropo for your 100th post! I have eaten a lot on the list...and can you believe there is a lot on the list that I just don't like? And one that I have never done - cupcakes from a cupcake shop. I don't think I have even seen a cupcake shop before!

Bird, Frizzy and Our Little Yaya said...

Congrats on your 100th post again! I have to ask you something and need an answer ASAP!

Did you want to be included in my Pay it Forward drawing? I am having Yaya pull names today but am confused on a few. You left a comment but weren't specific about wanting to be included in the drawing and paying it forward. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

What a cool list! I think that now that I live in Germany, I might tweak this to include a few Czech and German desserts that I'm "convinced" the world can't live without.

Big congrats on the 100th post. That's an awesome achievement. Did you enjoy any of the listed desserts in celebration?!
