    As it says on the tin. are their items of food or drink I suppose that you hated as child yet have grown to like.

    For instance, I find that I have come to enjoy eating certain vegetable, like parsnips and cauliflowers. Things I despised as a kid. Mushrooms have also become acceptable.

    Although, some stuff still remains hated. Cheese for example is like eating the rancid tapeworm of a slaveish imp from hell and egg is utterly revolting. Perhaps, you can answer on this too? If you want to.

    Oh, and another thing, are there foods that you liked as a kid but have grown to dislike? I personally hate McDonalds type foods since they are about as nourishing and appetising as excrement (in my eyes at least), yet as a kid I would wolf that gunge down. Anyone? Anything? :)

    For me its asparagus and mushrooms and salad in general. Also fried babysitter fed it to us for breakfast (what was she thinking!) and it just made me hate it...but i can enjoy it at a fair or baseball game now a days.

    Actually, that is a ditto for me. I used to hate it, actually Sweetcorn in general, but it's good now. Butter or not -- Tasteeeeeeeeeey!

    I love brussels sprouts and green beans. I never could stand either one of them.

    As a kid, I didn't like cheese (especially mold), aspargus and capers, but now, I love them all. :)

    I still don't really like fresh tomatos. It's not that I hate them or find them disgusting, but I avoid them when possible. When they come with a salad I'm offered and don't want to turn down, or in a wrap or such, I eat them. But I don't like them pure and won't put them into a salad when I make one myself.

    Never had a problem with processed tomatos, though (ketchup, sauce, etc).

    I used to hate pizza when I was a kid, I would not eat it or touch, but now I love it. Another food that I hated was pickles and I still hate pickles to this day, it still make me gag.

    I used to hate green beans and roast parsnips. Sunday dinner was always full of horrid veg. Now I love it.
    Though I still can't stand most salad stuff

    When I was young my mother would slice cucumbers (which I loved) and place them in a bowl with vinegar whenever company came, and everytime I saw her bring out the vinegar my heart would just sink, because I hated cucumbers in vinegar! Now I love it. I can eat slices plain or in vinegar like potato chips.

    Broccoli over here. I used to hate it with a fiery passion, but now I love it when it's cooked. I still hate it raw.
