I like one, but not the other

Me and my 13 year old niece were having this conversation the other day about stuff we like and don't like and I thought it was interesting. We would talk about tomatos, she hates them. I love them!! But she loves ketchup, and I can't stand it!

She will eat a ton of ketchup before ever laying hand on a tomato... I would eat all the tomatos in the world and never touch a bottle of ketchup!!!

Anyone else have certain foods that they hate, but like products made with them or vice versa???

Like tomatos and ketchup

or peanuts and peanutbutter??

I love pineapple and I love pizza, but I do not like fruit on my pizza.

I love nuts, but I do not like them IN things (like cookies, brownies, pies).

I will not touch plain yoghurt but will eat it if served with honey and nuts or if added to dishes.

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 don't consider gorgonzola edible when it is raw, and by itself. However I love the flavour when it is melted in sauces, quiches etc.

I really like chocolates as they are (mainly milk based, there are very few bitter chocolates that I like though), but I don't care too much for chocolate cakes, ice creams etc. (I eat it, but they wouldn't be my first choices)

I like chocolate and I like nuts - do NOT mix these together in ANY way!

Same goes for peanut butter - do NOT mix this with chocolate!

I don't like Amaretto but I LOVE an Italian Margarita (just sub Amaretto for the triple sec, sugar on rim instead of salt).

I did not even think about that... things you like, but not mixed into anything. I use to be that way about onions. I liked onion flavor, would eat it raw, but could not stand the texture of onions in my food. That has since changed.

I love cherry flavor... but will not eat a real cherry!!!

I wouldn't eat a raw tomato to save my life but I like tomato sauce, spag sauce, blended salsa, ketchup, tomato soup, soup made with tomato juice or V8, dehydrated tomatos (even reconstituded) and roasted tomatos made with evo/garlic processed in the blender.

In addition to not eating a raw tomato....I cannot bear to have seeds or that clear juice anywhere near me. It makes my hands break out in hives.
