    It was coleslaw for me.  Not at all sure why, though.

    Definitely onions. Always loved the smell but they always ended up being too spicy for my childhood tastes. But now I love them!

    Steak.  Filet Mignon to be exact.  My dad made me try it when I was little and I hated how you could just keep chewing and chewing it like gum but it never felt like it was time to swallow.  Now, I love it.  A seasoned stake cooked rare, cool red in the middle...  I'm salivating just thinking about it.

    Beans! Cornbread was the only thing that got mine down as a kid but now I can even eat them cold!

    I used to hate cheese as a child, which was strange since pretty much every kid I've ever known loves mac 'n cheese. I even hated cheetos. Of course now I'm older I love it and I don't understand why I hated it so much.

    I really didn't like bitter gourd when I was a kid because it was really bitter. But now, I cook it and really like it. It's still bitter but it's really nutritious so I eat them. The question now is how I get my kids to eat them.

    No, we were poor and in the middle of post WWII rationing, I had to eat the food that was served or go hungary.  Perhaps a principle that should be applied to the spoiled, over stuffed on junk food, brats of today

    Cabbage rolls.  I always thought the smell of them cooking was horrible, yet I was curious enough to try them and found out I enjoy them.

    For some reason I hated cheese, couldn't even bear the smell. Today, can't live without it... Go figure.

    Hated veggies as a kid. Any sautéed veggies are awesome.
