Have your tastes changed?

Are there any foods that you can think of that you hated and now you like? I'm not talking when you were a kid and now as an adult you like. Is there anything recent you can give as an example?

I always like trying new things but I can also be a picky eater. I think if people tried things that look bad that they'd find they like them more times then not.

Anybody have any examples?

I've got a few. I used to dislike Watermelon quite a lot, but now I'm obsessed with it! I can't get enough. I think it started one day when it was really hot and I was with a friend at someones house. We found a watermelon in their fridge and just hacked it up and ate it. Ever since then I've loved it.

Another one is tomato. I used to not like just eating tomatoes, I like them in sauces and stuff but not just a plain tomato. A few years ago though I went on a trip to France and Russia. In both places vegetarian food was very low (I am veggie) and the hotels at night often provided meat-meals. Us vegetarians were often left with nothing but some cut up tomatoes and maybe some zuchinni or a gherkin thrown in. And in the case of Russia it was either tomatoes or this gross fried dough stuff for breakfast. Because they were pretty much all I had to eat on some days I got hooked. Now I can eat whole tomatoes just like apples, love them!

Chinese food for me. I used to love the stuff and now I feel sick when I look at it or smell it.
I would never turn down chicken chow mein or egg fried rice in the past but I would now.

Lobster and spinach.

I used to hate the taste of lobster, a lot. But I gave it a try again this past summer and love it. Not that I'd go out of my way for it but if it's on the menu at a restaurant or something, I'd probably get it.

And spinach, I used to absolutely loathe but have come to really love spinach salads with cranberries and stuff.

There isn't a lot of food I don't like(I grew up eating all kinds of stuff as my parents are pretty diverse with their food) so I'm not overly picky.

Oh, actually I just thought of a MAJOR example of my tastes changing. I can't believe this isn't the first thing I thought of before.

I used to be a meat-eater. Not like meat 5 times a day or something but I ate it quite a bit, all sorts of meat. About 5 years ago I decided to go vegetarian. Within the first half of the first year I sometimes craved meat every now and then... but now, 5 years on and I am actually disgusted by all forms of meat.

I can't stand the smell, the look, and the thought of actually eating meat is enough to make me want to vomit. In fact, when I was overseas last year I think I did accidently eat a bit of chicken. I'm not sure if it even was chicken or not but the thought that it may have been made me want to throw up, I felt sick and disgusting.

So that's a major example of taste change for me. I used to love meat and seafood and I feel physically ill around it. Talk about changing your taste buds haha!

Nope. Everything I hated 10 years ago, I still hate today.

I've grown more TOLERANT of some foods, but it all boils down to what it's thrown in and etc. Like soups and whatnot. Pretty much any veggie I don't eat regularly unless it's in a good soup.

There were a good many vegetables that I never liked when I was younger that I enjoy now. Peas and green beans would be the biggest ones.

I eat fish a lot more now than I did before, too. I can't say that I don't like anything that I did before.

Not really. I'm kind of a picky eater, and where I probably should give more foods 'a chance', I don't. If I didn't like a certain food 4 or 5 years ago, I'm not liking it today because I'm not one who is all that willing to try new things. Especially if the food dish has an ingredient I know I do not like.

I'm the opposite of Crouton. I was a vegetarian for about 10 years and the thought of eating meat turned my stomach, but within the last couple of years I've started eating turkey and chicken again. And bacon.

I still don't eat beef, though. beurk.

May I ask why it is that you started to eat meat again?
