    For example, I used to hate cheese

    when I was a kid, now I love it! I guess old people were right, or opinions do change as we get older. Ha! XD

    but now I love it and put sriracha on everything! I loved Brussel Sprouts as a kid and now I hate them . That's about it for the food changes. Some things never change though, I still hate cooked mushrooms (they taste like soil to me) , maple syrup , anything coconut flavored...

    Odd Indeed.

    I eat tons of foods that I couldn't stand when I was younger, and have stopped eating certain things I loved as a kid.   Broccoli, onions, sweet peppers, saurkraut, green peas....just to name a few things I used to loathe and adore now.

    Not Odd, But Natural.

    For Me, It's A Texture Thing.

    I used to HATE bananas and yogurt when I was younger.  Now I love bananas and fruit yougurts (although I still don't like "Greek" yogurt, too rich, and any of the sweet flavors, like vanilla or chocolate etc.)  I still can't stand scallops or sweet potatoes, so I...
