What foods did you love (or hate) as a child that you now hate (or love) as an adult?

How did your cravings change? 
I don't think I ever really hated much of anything food related, but I didn't like cauliflower, broccoli, or squash as a child and now I do. 
I for sure hated diet Coke but now I love it. 
I loved sweets and though I don't hate sweets now, I no longer crave them. Now I crave savory.

    I was just meh about most vegetables as a kid (or strongly disliked them). Now I love most vegetables. I loved fried chicken drumsticks and now they gross me out. I liked really....pedestrian types of desserts -- Entenmann's chocolate cake, Breyers chocolate ice cream, Chips Ahoy cookies (the old crunchy style) -- and now I'm more snooty about what desserts I will eat -- tiramisu, bakery cookies, homemade ice cream in edgier flavor combinations, for example.

    Oh, yes, brussels sprouts. I didn't like them in the least and now I love them. I must have not had a taste for crucifers when I was young.

    The foods I hated and refused to eat as a child is way too long to post here, mealtimes were a nightmare for my poor mum. The only veg I would eat was peas, though I would have raw cabbage and carrots with my Sunday dinner! Wouldn't eat onions and would pick them out of stews and such like, now love them and eat most veg, having given up meat eating nearly 30 years ago.

    My father always had a vegetable garden & there were lots of farmer's markets around, so I liked all vegetables.  I've never been a picky eater & liked trying new foods.  I have a vivid memory of eating Mexican food for the 1st time.  I do remember being served canned black eyed peas & I gagged on them.  I won't even eat fresh ones.  I also can't eat rye bread.  I ate it while I was pregnant & got sick on it.  I cringe just smelling it.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I liked any variety of apple when I was a kid but I'm an apple snob now and will only buy Honeycrisp.  If you haven't tried them - you have a treat in store.  
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    We are Gala fans in this house, but I will buy Honeycrisp next time!
