I didn't know I loved it till I tried it...

be it food , drink, soap, salt, brie cheese, what do you love when you said you didn't like it till you tried.
mine was broccoli. would give me toots, from what others said. well, i tried broccoli, loved it, & am tootless!!! (usually)

hummus!!
I've always disliked beans, so I never went near it. Dad made it often.
Then I finally got brave one day when I saw my Dad using a few cloves of garlic.... how could that be bad?
Can you say YUMMY!!!
Now I actually try other bean dishes once in awhile.

chicken hearts, fried kalamari, fried clams....I can keep going, but, won't. I was a very picky eater until I was in my mid 20's. LOL, not anymore. Things I won't eat can be counted on one, so far, lol

always like to try new stuff, except sushi. i am not interested in raw fish. not even a little bit. i think it is just a fad anyway.

several of my kids love it. to each his own

Asparagus! Ugh!!! Wouldn't go near it with a 20-foot pole, then a friend brought an asparagus dish to a potluck. Loved her dish. Ate it up like crazy. Don't know what happened, but the switch was thrown. Now I really enjoy asparagus.

Brussels sprouts still are on my "yuck" list. Have tried them gently steamed and tender and other ways, but can't get them down. I can still hear my mother calling them "little cabbages." My question? I didn't like cabbage, why should I like Brussels sprouts? Now I'll eat cabbage in any form, but haven't warmed up to Brussels sprouts. Maybe someday.

Try cutting the wee cabbages in half and sauteeing them in butter with a bit if salt and garlic then dip them in a mustard sauce and you will not be able to get enough of otf them!

Hummus is made with Chickpeas which aren't really beans anyway!

Asparagas, when I was a child, only came in cans and I would eat each and every spear then drink the liquid! I still love it - especially because I can get it fresh but like a small percentage of the population my system reacts unpleasantly afterwards.
