I am not a huge fan of peanuts, but I like peanut butter.

I love fruit, but never drink juice.

I only like plain yogurt when it's savory, ie cucumber yogurt sauce.

I hate the taste of buttermilk, but love almost anything cooked with it.

Similarly for tomatoes. I cannot stand the raw taste of it but will go for seared tomatoes, ketchup, tomato paste, sauces or anything that is cooked with it.
I am the same way, I think it has to do with how acidic they are raw, and how cooking them calms the acidity down.

Some of mine have already been listed. I hate figs but like Fig Newtons. I hate buttermilk but I love things made with it. I hate peanuts but I love peanut butter.

Most of mine aren't so much love/hate relationships, but things that I prefer over others. For instance, I like my hot meatloaf without ketchup but my cold meatloaf sandwiches with ketchup, whereas my mom liked her hot meatloaf with ketchup and her cold meatloaf sandwiches without it. I'm not a big fan of fresh apples (I can eat them but I never get in the mood for them), but I love apple juice, apple sauce, and apple pie. I don't care much for fresh pears but loved canned pears. I like frozen spinach but for some reason I prefer canned spinach. I don't like coffee (love the smell!) but I like coffee flavored candies.

I like peaches, but don't like peach flavoured schnapps.

I like strawberry jam better than fresh strawberries.

I like figs but don't like those fig newtons.

I like maple syrup on pancakes but don't like maple flavoured anything.

I like roasted zucchini, but not steamed or sauteed.

I like fresh fruit, but don't care for fruit in ice cream - I think it's because I don't like the 'frozen' feel.

Yes Daisy, me too!

I love fruits but just can't tolerate any artifical flavorings.

CJ and Daisy is right, when you know and enjoy the flavour of the real, fresh fruits, artificial fruit flavours leave much to be desired. I agree, I find cherry and banana flavours particularly nasty!!

There are a couple of others as well...

I love green fresh asparagus, but those mushy white ones out of the tin give me shivers!!

The generic, overpowering taste of monosodium glutamate annoys me no end in most foods (they are often used generously in many prepackaged food and chinese foods), howevr I do like some of the flavoured crisps/potato chips (cheese & onion, sour cream & onion, smokey bacon), which are often seasoned with msg.

Anything 'green apple' flavoured. I love apples, and love martinis, but the very taste of a green apple martini will send me flying for the door.
