When I was younger (up until about high school actually), I wanted nothing to do with any kind of bean.  Now I LOVE beans.

brussel sprouts. I thought I hated them growing up. I even wrote a persuasive essay on why they should be banned from the world (jokingly, but I got an A!)  I now LOVE them.

Hated but now love: fried fish, sauerkraut, pepperoni pizza (but only w/ pineapple, too).

Loved but now hate: sardines, cold hot dogs, baked beans

Broccoli! It used to literally make me gag to eat it as a kid, and now I LOVE it!

I used to hate pickles and any potatoes but now pickles are my most favorite things to eat and I eat potatoes a lot too.

I loved sour candy and pretty much any candy really, now a piece of dark chocolate is pretty much all I enjoy aside from the occasional fancy chocolate. All those sour/waxy/plasticy candies are disgusting!

I never liked asparagus as a kid or some of the other more….unique flavors, I’m definitely more adventurous about what I’ll try now, but I think that’s just a natural change of adulthood. I still dislike mushrooms.

i HATED tomatos with a passion when i was a kid.  now i can’t get enough of them!

And i also hated all things creamy, like mayonnaise, dips, etc.  now i love it.  same with flavored chips, like Doritos – hated them!  again, now i love them!  these things i wish i still hated, lol.

 

can’t think of what i liked then and don’t now – i was the pickiest eater ever, so there is not much to choose from.

I hated onions…to the point that if there was one itty bitty one in my mcdonalds breakfast burrito I would vomit.  Now, I still can’t stand crunchy onions but I love onion rings.

Mine isn’t really a food, it’s a condiment. I hated mustard until a few years ago and now I can’t get enough of it. I put it on my sandwiches and then dunk it in more mustard.

I dont really have many because I wasnt a picky child. I used to love cake but now all of that sugar makes me feel sick. I also used to love cheesy broccoli but in the past few years I have developed an allergy to broccoli I also avoid anything in the same family
