Foods you grew into

OK, on this same concept, what foods do you love now, but hated as a child. "Acquired tastes."

I absolutely hated cottage cheese and blue cheese an now love both of them. I didn't like most cruciferous vegetables, and now love them.

I can never really admire people who decided they hated something when they were 5 or 6 and refuse to have an open mind about it now that they are 50 or 60. What did you really dislike as a child but now love?

Onions were dispised in my youth, and now embraced. Still not a tomato fan when they are in their natural state, but I have no problem with most tomato products. Go figure.

Bleu Cheese (aka: BLEW CHeese )
and cherry tomatoes.
I used to HATE them, now I love em both.

I had my 1st try of sushi in Oahu circa 1977 and I dont remember this but my dad told me I hate a huge amount where no one else would try it.

I hated stew but now think of it as comfort food. Same for oatmeal.
I would not touch seafood of any kind as a child but now it is my favorite!
I still, to this day, won't eat a lima bean though! ;)

Asparagus. My mom used to cook it to death and I thought that was the only way you could eat it. I hated it with a passion. At a holiday I was served some that was cooked, but still crisp. I was taught to always eat what you were given when you are a guest so I ate it. I am so glad I did. It is now one of my favorite veggies.

I never liked onions as a kid, but as I aged my tastes changed and now could not think of cooking without them.

Peas, spinach (greens of any sort), asparagus, carrots, sauer kraut (although I have always loved cabbage that was not kraut). Some I found I liked after I had my own family and the others were thanks to my oldest daughter encouraging me in the last decade.
