Firstly let me get the scotch bonnet thing out of the way. I've felt the heat of a raw raw scotch bonnett. I would have to be paid a significant amount of money to do that. Or maybe take the most miniscule amount per day until it was gone. Might take a year to finish.

I'm over halfway done the list already just by accident. 42 left if my count is correct. A couple things were lucky circumstance. Working for a coffee shop gave me Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee (wasn't cheap though) and a Christmas party I went to once with an ex featured some expensive wines. I couldn't tell you what they were but he wasn't worried about the price tag.

Mara, we need to take a little weekend trip to New York so I can get this Candle 79 thing out of the way. It will be a chore but sometimes you just have to take one for the team.

Thanks to the Samosaman not only have I had a good, authentic samosa but he resently added fried plantains to his farmers market stand. I'll get some tomorrow.

Hi! I just wanted to say that I found it really hard to tell what ones you tried and didn't try. The bold color varies almost too little from the regular color for the naked eye to tell! Eh, maybe its just me. Anywho, I enjoyed doing this as well. I like your blog!

you're right. I added some color to the bolded ones (note the blur of orange) that should help them stand out. Thanks!

I'm having a lot of fun reading these lists... so much to try out there in veganland!

raw scotch bonnet doesn't have to be a whole bite of a pepper -- I put it chopped up with mango, onion, lime and cilantro for salsa. Yum!

My list is up but I take exception to the addition of highly processed and packaged foods like soy whipped cream and fake meats, so I've made a "crunchy vegan 100" version of the list, reinstating some items from the original -- like rose harissa, ZOMG! the yum!
