Deleting all members of a list that are of a particular type

Hi there,

Let's say I have a list:

foodlist = ['Fruit', 'Vegetable', 'Fish', 'Pasta', 'Rice_', 'Water', 'Meat_', 'Chocolate']

How would I create a new list that contains members of foodlist that DO NOT end in _  ?    (i.e., the new list would have all members of foodlist except for 'Rice_' and 'Meat_')

newList = ['Fruit', 'Vegetable', 'Fish', 'Pasta', 'Water', 'Chocolate']


newList = []
for food in foodlist:
    if food not ?
         newList.append(food)


It's probably really simple, but I am still novicish (a nice new word!) at Python,


Thanks,
John

OR

newlist = [food for food in foodlist if not food.endswith("_")]
