I liked THAT?????? Fri, 08/10/12 11:04 PM (permalink)
Tastes change over the years. For example, I like to love spinach salad and spinach pie. Now, I don't like spinach at all. However, sometimes, I run across something which I used to love, but now I find totally disgusting. For example, in my younger days (up through college) I used to eat Chef Boy-Ar-Dee canned pasta. Last time I opened a can out of nostalgia, I put it in the pot, smelled it, and threw it straight into the garbage.
 
Is there anything you used to love to eat, but now not only dislike it, but can't imagine how you ever liked it?

    I really used to like Matjes Herring, but can't stand it now.

        It's usually the other way around. Many youngsters disliked veggies but as they got older they scoff them up.
        As a kid, I had Jello in some form every day. As an adult, didn't eat it for about 40 years. Now as a Senior Kid, I've started gumming and swishing it between my teeth again!

            When I was a kid, I used to eat bologna and American cheese sandwiches, 3-4 pieces of each alternating, on white bread with ketchup. Just typing that made me gag a little!

                I grew up liking liver, a lot, until I took the course to become an EMT and learned about its role in the body.  Then I couldn't touch it, for years.  Lately, been trying some once in a while, there is a local place that does a nice job.  The flavor seems just as good as I remember...but I'm still going slow....

                    Michael, when you grow up with the best quality of everything, what's not to like. I feeling the same way, I can't think of one thing........pnwc

                        I'm with Michael on this. Can't really recall anything that I liked that I still don't like. Never cared for green beans as a kid and still don't like them. Guess my dislikes haven't really changed much, either.

                          Like someone else said. Any pasta with sauce, don't know exactly when that happened but Its gone from "its Ok" to can't stand it. Pizza is another thing that I don't care for that I used to like although I'm not sure if the pizza I'm getting is the problem.

                            Chun King Chinese dinners, and Chef Boyardee pizza mix.  When my dad left town on business, my mom and I made these dinners together, and would add our own extra toppings on the pizza.  I still see them in the grocery, but they have no appeal to me.
                             
                            Frozen Mexican dinners, I think they were El Patio - compartments for Mexican rice, refried beans and a tamale with or a couple of enchiladas.  I remember them being very filling - tried one a few months back, maybe a different brand, the size seemed to have shrunk considerably, and wasn't very good.

                              Italian sausage

                              I used to like Italian sausage. Then, virtually overnight, I found that I did not like it; the spices were fine, but there was something in it that made it impossible to eat. Thinking it might have been just that one, I ordered a sausage and peppers sandwich from a place that I had bought from several times before; same reaction.
                               
                              Weird coincidence time: within a month of this happening, the first turkey Italian sausages hit the market in New York. Those, I liked (which is why I didn't think of them before).

                                  Same here with the Chinese dinners. I remember loving them as a kid, especially the crunchy noodles. It was a special "treat" for us. I bought one a few years ago, and found it disgusting. I guess when you can make something like that fresh and quite a bit healthier, even nostalgia for something can't make you want it anymore.
                                  The pizza kits were our Friday night staple growing up, we were relatively poor and couldn't afford takeout pizza, or even real mozzarella to put on them, just the plain pizza kit. I will still pick one up probably once a year, and doctor it up a little, and it's fine with me. The brand we had was "Appian Way" back then, not sure if it's still around. Two pizza kits and some generic soda, and there was usually leftover pizza to have cold for breakfast on Saturday morning while watching cartoons on our 19" black and white tv.

                                    I used to like York Peppermint patties as a kid, but not much any more.Sometimes the mint flavour bothers my stomach.Same goes for garlic bread. It makes me belch if the garlic is too strong.

                                        I loved Hostess cupcakes and Twinkies as a kid, until they changed the formula. The orange cupcakes are the only one's I'll eat, these days, but must be with whole milk, no skim or 2%.

                                              Some of the things I had to eat as a kid ( liver & onions) I don't have to eat anymore.  So much better being an adult

                                                Two items:  (1) Another anti-liver fan:  as a kid I would eat the chopped chicken liver my mom made as it was coming out of the grinder.  Eeew
                                                and (2) I used to eat a whole runny egg yolk after I ate all the fried white around it, but I'm grossed out by wet eggs now.

                                                  I loved liver and onions when I was a kid, but then, I liked spinach, too. And Brussels sprouts. Fact is I still love liver, spinach and Brussels sprouts. I had some wonderful liver and onions and bacon on Wednesday for lunch at Cap City Diner in Gahanna. The sauce was marvelous. Poor lleechef doesn't like liver and had to settle for mussels.

                                                    Michael, We used to eat LB&O growing up in Bpt. I haven't had beef liver in years, because no one else likes it. My wife likes Chicken livers, I take the Chicken livers soak in milk, toss in seasoned flour and fry in olive oil. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. I sautee the onions when the livers about 1/2 done..........I have to eat it with Fried potatoes and of course ketchup....don't knock it, until you try it..........Bill

                                                      I do believe that it's not so much that your taste changes, which it does to some degree, but it's the manufacturer that changes the recipe little by little over time.
                                                       
                                                      There used to be quality ingredients in the food we purchased, not so true anymore unfortunately. Couple that one issue alone with all the shortcuts they now use to get the product out faster. For example, why should a company slow roast chicken for hours when they can get almost the same taste by hiding the "almost" with cheap spices and save some time and money?
                                                       
                                                      Even some of the fast food has changed for the worse. Just look at how bad KFC is now. Even some Pizzeria's have gone bad by using 2% milk Mozzarella instead of staying with their tried-and-true recipe. (that was in the early 90's in N.E. NJ too!)
                                                      You just don't mess with my pizza...... and nobody, I mean nobody, puts ketchup on a hotdog! LOL

                                                        I liked Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but now I find them cloyingly sweet.

                                                        Cloyingly! What a good word. Anyway, yeah, I feel the same way about Reese's. In fact, I feel that way about most of the "available at most grocery stores" chocolate bars that I used to like. I loved them when I was younger - even up to early college - but now they just seem so heavy and unnecessarily sweet. I can only handle a couple of bites of any given Hershey or NestlĂ© product before I start feeling gross. I'll still enjoy a bit of one from time to time, but I've started leaning more towards "healthier" and more organic candies (usually something fruit-based) when I get that craving for something sweet.

                                                          Peanut butter.  I used to take a peanut butter sandwich for lunch in grade school and one day I was eating it and some peanut butter cookies and it was like a switch flipped - no more p.b. for me!
