Lima Beans. They used to be my favourite food and now they make me gag.

I still love Chef Boyardee but the thought of Kid’s Cuisine is making me sick. Those used to be an awesome special treat!

I’ve really never been all that picky, but I would eat seafood as a kid if I were made to but I won’t go near it now.

There is a lot I wouldn’t eat as a child but love now: ranch dressing, brats, tacos, salsa…the list goes on.

The things I loved as a child that I won’t touch now are cold hot dogs and Kraft macaroni and chesse (I will eat homemade though).

As a kid my mother got me to eat both braunschweiger, liverwurst, whatever you call it as well as liver and onions.  While neither were my favorite, I was OK with both.

Since I left home, I never bought either because they weren’t really my favorites.  Now the thought of eating either one just gags me.

But then I used to hate green beans and now love them.  Go figure.

I used to eat eggs. ALL THE TIME. It was the only thing I was allowed to cook when I was younger, and so that’s what I ate. I can’t stand eggs now. Occationally they’re okay but I can’t cook them. 

And from then to now. I NEVER ate chinese food, I’d have my parents get me mc donalds or something. Now I can’t get enough.

Ketchup on scrambled eggs! I can’t stomach it now at all, but loved it as a kid.

Hot dogs *shudder* 

I used to eat them cold as a kid. I can barely eat them cooked now.
