I have been posting old food quiz’s here from my other blog, which I am going to close down eventually as it takes a lot of time maintaining two blogs. This quiz is the most recent one, set by my friend Pink. If you would like to give it a try, click here for the questions, and do the answers on your own blog, and let Pink know. If you are just interested in learning something, then carry on reading! These are my answers, and all of them are done without referring to external sources, including google.
