I've had at least 31 out of your list, including a couple that you won't consider (many, many years ago before I began keeping kosher).

Things I haven't had and can't imagine eating (not for kashrut reasons, although all but one are non-kosher, but for the "yuck factor"):
Whole insects
Fugu (not *dying* to risk paralysis & death)
Chitterlings
Roadkill
Horse

I'd like to add one which could be on the list... kangaroo. I live in Australia, and can't imagine eating it, but anyone who has always says it tastes wonderful! I just can't imagine eating Skippy though.

I've very unadventurous, but funnily enough I have eaten crocodile, it tasted so much like pork I'm not convinced it was crocodile!
