Subject: Foods you hated...but now love!

Written By: MrCleveland on 01/03/12 at 1:54 pm

When you were a kid, you probably saw a plate of food and... 8-P

But now when you see the same food, you took a bite of it and... :o

I was that way with pizza, spaghetti, and lasagna. Now, I'll eat it up like no tomorrow!

Those I would eat up on sight.
Since my mom was Korean, she made a lot of dishes I didn't care about, probably because I hated any spicy food or anything with vinegar. But I acquired it just before she died. (Thank you. Mom, wherever you are.)

My sister told me the same thing about rice!  ;D  Jerk. 

I refused to eat fish of any kind when I was little, but now I love it.  Same with cooked vegetables, but now I find myself craving them. 

I still don't like Brussels Sprouts though.  The taste isn't bad, but I can't stand the texture.

Pizza and chili.

Melted cheese readily comes to mind. At first I guess I hated the way it looked, and to an extent, tasted. But for the past 20 years I have liked it (after all, it is a source of calcium and protein, which is nutritional). I eat it on pizza all the time, as well as on other foods that typically include it.

Salad dressings.

I used to not wanna eat any kind at all! However, when I tried balsamic vinegar mixed with EVOO, I loved it. And since then I have tried other salad dressings, albeit in small quantities...and it's not so bad when you don't put too much on your salads.

When I was in my single-digit years, I did not like nuts at all, much less care to try them. But when I was about 10 or 11, I started to try different kinds of nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc.) and enjoyed them! At age 11 I remember developing a fondness for macadamias, which some people do not classify as nuts, despite "nut" being in the name.

They are apparently a follicle (so more related to seeds than nuts)

And you could say the same for peanuts which are a type of legume

Oh yes; I knew there was some other term for them...

Speaking of nuts, I use to think walnuts were nasty (and I think I put almonds in the same category), but now I like having them in my desserts.

Other foods that I hated but now like include squash (because it looked ugly), pumpkin pie (same thing), eggs, mushrooms, oatmeal, and broccoli if it's steamed and seasoned.

Wow, I was a fussy kid...

certain Mexican foods... possibly due to how they smelled to me as a kid. But at age 10 I started trying them and loved 'em.

I think you touched on something there, my daughter is much more willing to try new foods, she's 11.  My 8 year old says he doesn't like something but has never tried it and isn't willing to try it.  I think most kids assume they don't like the things they've never tried.

Or it could be that your tastes change as you get older...but I think it's more about be a bit more adventurous at 10 or 11.

Yeah; many kids are like that when they're younger. I know I was. I guess if it looks unappealing, they won't wanna give it a try.

I agree with you there, too. There were lots of foods I was reluctant to try during my single digit years. But I do remember deciding "to try new things in the 1990s" when the year 1990---the year I turned 10---began. But it took at least a year or two more before I was ready to try certain foods.

I just know that anytime my family and I went to a Mexican restaurant when I was little, I'd get the kids menu...and I just about always ordered a hamburger. I'm pretty sure it was sometime in 1990 when I finally tried a taco for the first time. Then I progressed to burritos, enchiladas, tostadas, and other Mexican dishes. And they are made of ingredients that appear in other foods that I have enjoyed eating.

However, I still have my reservations about sour cream. A little bit is not so bad, when you mix it with certain foods, especially to cool them... but a huge scoop of it is too much.

It's like when you're young you hate everything but then as you get older your tastes change.

Right. So do your food preferences.

herring with onions

Ok, already!!!  We get it, you like creamed corn and creamed spinach!! ;D


Actually, I don't like either but I do like spinach sautéed with butter and garlic.  Never would have eaten that as a kid.
