I got 8/10 myself. Not bad.

8/10

I missed the fig newtons one and the coffee one but since I don't like figs and don't drink coffee, I think I did pretty good.

7/10. people who haven't taken the quiz yet, spoilers beware...

[SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]I got the kopi luwak one right, because I voted true. But technically it was false. They said the bean was 'partially digested' when they actually come out fine, because the luwak/palm civet only digests the coffee cherry surrounding it. So it's not QUITE as gross as they make it seem.[/SPOILER]

Thanks for that bit of info. I could just think of such great commercials for it. (Go take the quiz BEFORE you highlight the spoiler!)
