    Fish - I would eat fish when I was hungry but I never really liked it but now it's pretty good.

    Squash - I used to hate the smell and the taste but now I could eat a small bowlful.

    Spicy Mustard - I didn't like regular mustard that much so the spicy kind was a complete turn-off. I can eat it now, no worries. (I prefer the regular kind though.)

    Garlic - To be honest, I still don't like it all that much but I'll take it (lightly sprinked) on some Pizza or Spagetti.

    Hot Tomales - I'm sure most of you are aware of this spicy cinnamon candy. I couldn't bare to keep them in my mouth for more than 10 seconds but now I can keep them in my mouth as long as I want.

    If there's already a thread like this please give the link so I can copy and paste this onto it, thank you.

    Here's a short list:

    Spinach
    Green beans
    Pretty much anything green actually
    Cheese (I still don't really like it but I'll take it in small doses)
    Beans

    Chinese food. I used to cry when we'd go eat at a Chinese place I hated it so much.
    Bloody steak. I don't eat meat much unless I go to some place nice and when I do I take me meat rare, something I couldn't stand when I was small.
    And to go reverse, I used to love grape flavored things when I was little, now the smell alone makes me nauseous.

    I didn't care much for peas, spinach, or broccoli when I was little. Now I eat peas, like blending spinach in with ground beef and tomato sauce (still won't eat it like it is; looks like seaweed), and munch the florets instead of the stalks on broccoli.

    Mushrooms and eggs. Hated mushrooms as a kid. Now I think they're OK (especially on pizza).

    Duno why, just didn't really like eggs as a kid. Now I LOVE omlettes, scrambled eggs, and egg salad.

    I really don't know becuase I practically ate anything when I was younger even asparagus and brussel sprouts and zuccini. I remember not liking the tang drink crystals because I thought they were too sweet.

    Pesto. I would never touch it because I thought the idea of green pasta was repulsive. Now pesto is one of my favorite foods. Also, I would eat only about five vegetables when I was little (peas, green beans, broccoli, carrots, and tomatoes), but now I like nearly all vegetables.

    Reading this made me remember a couple more.

    Mustard. I hated mustard when I was a kid. Now I'm like, "Mustard? Hell yeah I want mustard!"

    I also hated spicy things. Nowadays, if it doesn't burn my mouth, it ain't hot enough.

    I remember this one time when I was about four years old, we went to Taco Bell. It might have been the first time we went there. Anyway, I threw one of the biggest fits of my life there, because I didn't want to eat the food. Probably because it was all smothered in cheese. Eventually, Taco Bell became my fast food of choice for a while.

    Buffalo wings. I really hated them when I was little because they made me throw up. Then for a while I began enjoying them as an appetizer, mostly for the chicken part though. For the past month, however, I've been completely addicted to buffalo chicken. I order it as a meal when I can, it just tastes so good with that sauce all over it... man, if I wasn't getting some tonight, I'd be mad at myself for getting me in the mood for it.

    Glad you said that because you reminded me that I have some kool aid on the floor next to my chair. hahahaha

    I've liked everything my whole life except zucchini, cucumber, and radishes which I hated then and now.

    Tomatoes. Oh, and I always avoided grape flavored candy and went for the blue raspberry, but I like grape better now.
