Everyone loves food so chances are that if you have a bucket list you probably have some food related items on your list so here are some of the food and drink items that I have crossed off my bucket list so far. Note – Some of the following list items contain the consumption of alcohol. I’m of legal drinking age and I do not in any way promote or condone underage drinking or irresponsible drinking.

Number 91. make jolly ranchers suckers crossed off 11/18/12
When I was looking through Pinterest I saw some pictures showing how to make Jolly Rancher suckers and I knew I had to add it to my list! I love hard candy and lollypops so I knew that I would love making these suckers. They were really easy to make and they tasted amazing!
Number 35. Play beer pong. Crossed off 1/14/2014
This is a classic college game some might even say that it is a rite of passage! Since I did not go to a four year college, I never really had a chance to play it. This is one list item that I did not plan ahead of time. My friend knew that this was on my bucket list and while we were at the store before going to my house she asked if I wanted to cross it off the night of course I said yes because I love crossing things off my bucket list . We played the game that night I was not very good at it but it was a lot of fun! It was worth playing.
#43 become a vegetarian . Crossed off 9/1/12
I had tried to be a vegetarian before but it did not last very long because I was not prepared and I had not done research about how to eat right. When I decided to cross off this list item I did lots of research and I set a date when I was going to go Vegetarian. I was successful this time and I have been a vegetarian for almost three years now! I love being a vegetarian I have gotten to try all kinds of food that I probably would have not tried before.
#9 try bud light platinum Crossed off 5/30/12
Bud light is my favorite beer and when I saw that bud light platinum was coming out I was very excited to try it , so I added it to my list . When I got to drink it I really enjoyed the taste. I still like the original better but I’m glad I put this one on my list it was definitely worth trying .

#84 eat an entire bottle of whipped cream in one sitting . Crossed off 11/26/12
Now this one was pretty easy but also crazy to cross off , I bought a bottle of whipped cream and then when I got home I sat down in the living room and I started to empty the can it was fun because I have a major sweet tooth but I started to feel a little sick after a while so I drank some water. I was happy when I was finally finished. I’m glad I did this one but I don’t want to do it again.
#90 try deep fried Twinkies crossed off 6/23/12
Trying new food can be lots of fun so I decided to put this on my list because I knew that it would be very interesting to try. One summer day at the boardwalk I decided to cross this list item off. The deep fried Twinkies were pretty good, it was not amazing but it is worth trying at least once.
Happy bucket listing – Christina Epperly
