How much of a pciky eater are you?

How much of a picky eater are you?

You don’t eat 9 out of 87 things on this list!
You’re definitely NOT a picky eater. Whatever the size, shape, smell, or texture; if it’s food, you’ll put it in your mouth. You probably look down your nose at anyone who IS a picky eater, but look on the bright side — you can eat anything they don’t finish!
One of those I don’t partake was coffee which I stopped drinking when I was pregnant and never started drinking again.
Two of the others were liver and kidneys which aren’t food. They’re awful offal.
