Ever over-indulge in a favorite food and now you can't eat it?

The article about Butterscotch reminded me of one Christmas when I was doing a cookie exchange with some friends. I was to make butterscotch oatmeal cookies (one of my favorites at the time)..... I had to make about 15 dozen cookies. By the time I had finished tasting the batter and "testing" each batch of warm cookies I was just sick with sugar overload. To this day butterscotch is a turn-off for me! Anyone else ever ruin a favorite by over doing it?
