Foods you hated as a kid

When I was a kid I hated green beans but now I love them. I don't even know when that transition happened. So what is it that you hated when you were very young that now you are just fine with or even love?

Butternut squash. It literally made me puke when I was forced to eat it.

Now it's my favorite.

I have the same dislikes, except now I can tolerate lighty cooked broccoli. The second I can smell it...it's overcooked!

I hated pancakes, donuts, and waffles as a child. Now I love waffles...especially blueberry/flaxseed ones (still don't like pancakes and donuts though). I tasted a crumpet once at Dunkin' Donuts and liked that.

I hated black olives, bittersweet chocolate, and sharp cheese. Now I love them.

Cooked green or red cabbage (especially the pickeled cooked German red caggage) & cole slaw. Now I love cooked green cabbage but still can't stand cooked red cabbage or raw cabbage and mayo coleslaw!! I make oil & vinegar coleslaw dressing. I always liked raw cabbage green or red in salad.
