Foods You Hate in One Form but Love in Another

Someone mentioned something in another thread that made me think of this. Is there a food that you hate in one form but love in another?

For me it is peanuts. I hate roasted peanuts. I can tolerate peanuts in certain candies (like Snickers and toffee peanuts), and I can eat boiled peanuts (they taste like black-eyed peas to me), although they aren't my favorite. But I LOVE peanut butter!

Peas, I can't stand to eat them out right. If their in something like my vegetable soup thats fine. And Baked beans, I have to have either potato salad or cole slaw with them on my fork or I won't eat them.
Oh and by the way Barbara L, I can't stand boiled peanuts either. I mean who wants to eat wet nuts anyway?

Okra boiled and canned is a loogie, but pickled is nice and crisp, love peas just nothing out of a can

Corn - love corn on the cob hate corn kernals. Fresh or canned. Makes no difference.
Celery - hate the smell, the taste, the everything in its natural state but it is fine cooked in a soup or a dish base (provided it is cooked enough so it loses that smell!)
Plums - love em but I can't eat them stewed as it hurts my mouth. Don't know why.
Salmon - love it canned, smoked, gravalaxed, cerviched, sashimi-d, sushi-d, tartared - just don't cook it and serve it to me as a fillet.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

My brother will have ketchup (Made with tomatoes), spaghetti, lasagne (made with tomatoe sauce), chili (made with crushed tomatoes) but won't eat a raw tomato! Me, I can't eat raw onions but anyway they are cooked or added to a recipe they are fine and in some cases even desired.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
