Are there any foods you hated as a child - but grew to love?

Or Vice -versa - something you used to love but absolutely hate now?

It has been on my mind lately because I have recently fallen head over heels for Ikura sushi.

When I was about 19, I became introduced to sushi when I jot a job at the first sushi place in Brooklyn. I was really adventurous and immediately fell in love with the cuisine. I loved all of it.
All of it - that is - except for ikura . Ughh I hated it
- Slimy big balls of goo!
I can remember my order was always a "sushi deluxe - NO IKURA please!"

I'm 42 now......last year I was eating at a South American place and I had these corn cakes that were sprinked with salmon roe . (yes - ikura)...I'm still adventurous so I started picking at them.......hmmm pretty pleasing.....yeah!

Now I am addicted.
I can't believe I let all those years go by without having salmon roe in my life!

At least I can make up for lost time!!

Any foods like that for you?
