When did you stop liking sugar?

For those of you who did, of course. My parents never had processed sugars in the house when I was growing up, so of course I became a little obsessed with it in college and ate candy fiendishly for a few years until my early twenties. Now, in my late twenties, I really don't like it much at all. I rarely seek it out.

Has anyone else experienced this almost overnight transformation? Is it an age thing or did I just OD?

If the former, does anyone know what exactly it is that happens to our taste buds when we get older that makes us stop liking sugar?
