Loved as a kid, don't like now: a lot of processed stuff like mac&cheese, some canned soups, etc. Now, to me, they simply taste like salt. Most candy bars -- they just taste like sugar. Kool-aid. Coke & Pepsi

Hated as a kid, like now: fish and seafood, especially that Catholic childhood staple of tuna caserole (I learned that what I was getting as a child was probably simply bad quality. Grocery stores have improved since then). Cottage cheese. Mineral and soda water.

When I was knee high to a Grass Hopper I loved Grilled Cheese. In fact it was the first thing I learned how to cook when I was a kid. I thought it was so great cooking and flipping the Grilled Cheese sandwiches that I would insist on making and eating them at least once a day. This continued on for quite a while.
Then one morning I looked at a Grilled Cheese sandwich I had made and discovered I was not looking forward to eating it anymore. I had lost interest in the Grilled Cheese sandwich. I still do not care for them by themselves anymore unless there is something else with the Grilled Cheese in the sandwich.
However I still love all kinds of Cheese. As for flipping I now flip jack flaps. I feel kinda Cheesy. ;^{)

Jello, any flavor--I ate so much of it as a kid that I gag whenever I try to eat it now.

I also would dip my potato chips in salt before eating them. Ugh! I still love chips but no extra salt!

You'd think I'd hate peanut butter now, I ate so much of it then, but I still love it. Only difference is now I eat the natural kind.

Hm, I still love everything I used to love when I was a kid. As the matter of fact I wish I could get some of the things now.

this was a tough one for me. my love of food has only grown as i've gotten older. there isn't much i wouldn't still eat and enjoy if health weren't a factor.

i mean, i'd still love to eat a whole giant purple pixie stick, but i doubt a pound of colored sugar would be all that good for me.

however, the only thing i could come up with so far are twinkies. i had one recently, and was pretty disappointed with it. the cake wasn't moist buttery and sweet like i remember. it was sticky and kind of plastic tasting. the cream wasn't smooth and sugary, but rather tasted of some kind of extra light whipped imitation filling.
i guess i'll have to find some of the original recipe twinkies in an old bomb shelter in someone's back yard. i doubt they're past their expiration date yet...

Bucky, I know what you mean. The only childhood foods that I would not eat are the once that are made today under the same name, but do not taste anything like I remember.
