What are the foods you've taught yourself to like?

At the risk of sounding like an amateur, here goes... the first time I had yuzu, I thought it objectively tasted bad -- rotten and musty, like a moldy lemon.

And the first time I had a great olive oil in Italy, I thought it tasted like soap.

My taste buds were saying, "No, no, no." But my mind was saying, "You know you should like this..." What are the foods you've made yourself like? (I like yuzu and assertively-flavored olive oil now, but for a while, I faked it until I made it.)
