Top 10 Foods We Hated as Kids and Now Love

When we were younger, we didn't like eating some foods because they were unfitting for our taste buds or they looked so "gross" to us. But when we get older, our taste buds change, so we can finally like them. I didn't even like pizza until I ate it on November 1st, 2020. But I don't want to add pizza because it would cause a bit of controversy, I think?
The Top Ten
1 Coffee-Flavored Things

It's more usual for a kid to hate coffee than broccoli because of the unusual taste or because it was too hot compared to other foods we ate at the time. But now, we drink coffee as a normal drink to keep us awake. I rarely drink normal coffee, but I would plan to have it often soon if needed. I like the Java Chip Coffee from Starbucks and coffee ice cream. I've liked coffee ice cream as early as six years old!

I'm okay with coffee flavors, I guess, but I still hate coffee.

2 Broccoli

Hating it as a kid is usual because it looks so green, or they don't want to eat "trees" since they resemble them. I don't understand the main reason we used to hate broccoli. When some of us get older, we enjoy it as a healthy snack.

I don't remember hating broccoli as a younger kid, but I remember liking it when I was a bit older. Despite that, I don't enjoy the "salty ones" as much as the fresh ones. The best ones are from Chili's.

I didn't like the taste of broccoli on its own when I was a kid, but now I like eating cooked broccoli without it being mixed with something else.

3 Spicy Food

Yep, we know the reason why we hated eating these as a kid: they were so spicy! But now, some of us enjoy spicy things. I enjoy jalapenos and Hot Cheetos.

For some reason, spicy foods felt spicier to me as a kid than they do now. I must have had a low tolerance for spicy food when I was young.

4 Brussel Sprouts
5 Spinach
6 Olives
7 Tomatoes

We now all know that ketchup was made from tomatoes because they taste different from each other.

8 Potato Salad

I used to hate potato salad until I tried it one day a few months ago.

I tried potato salad today, and I hated it before I tried it. It's actually not that bad.

Potato salad is gross. I can't stand it, but maybe if I give it a try, I will like it.

9 Beans
10 Mushrooms
The Contenders
11 Green Beans

It depends, but of course, I liked those as a kid and still do!

12 Macaroni Salad
13 Pineapple

I used to hate pineapple as a kid. I hated having pineapple pizza. Now, it is pretty good.

14 Pickles

I hated pickles when I was little. I always removed them from my cheeseburger from McDonald's. Now, I like pickles.

15 Noodles

My brother used to hate noodles when he was a kid. He likes them now.

16 Chicken The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011.
17 Pears

I hated pears when I was little. They were my least favorite fruit. Now, I like them.

18 Peas

I remember some kids who hated peas. I don't remember if I hated them.

19 Hot Dogs A hot dog is a cooked sausage, traditionally grilled or steamed and served in a sliced bun as a sandwich.
20 Carrots
21 Mustard
22 Eggplant
