Used to hate it, now I love it

They say our tastes change as we grow from children to adults. That definitely happened to me. I used to find the idea of any fish besides for canned tuna or fishsticks repulsive. Then I discovered shrimp scampi, and from there a whole new world opened up. I feel like fish is a pretty common one though.

Ham was another one. As a kid, for whatever reason, I just didn't like ham. My sister loved it though. Now she's a vegetarian and I eat ham at every opportunity i get.

So what about you? What foods did you hate as a kid that you love now?

And what foods have you tried to like but despite an open mind and repeated efforts, just can't seem to enjoy? (plain, raw apples for me).
