Inspired by a BBC food survey, Melissa at Travelers’ Lunchbox asks the food blog community to list five “things you’ve eaten and think that everyone should eat at least once before they die.”

The answers are rolling in. From the simplicity of a garden-fresh tomato warmed by the sun, to the sophisticated tasting menu at the French Laundry, food-obsessed bloggers are sending in their picks for the flavors of a lifetime. Melissa is posting the submissions at Travelers Lunchbox and the list is impressive.

Is there a clear winner? With contributions ongoing it is hard to tell, but the current leader is the delightful almond macaron cookies from Pierre Hermé.

Now, get thee to Paris (or Tokyo) and grab some macarons! You never know when the end is near.
