    I must be weird. I cannot think of anything that I used to like
    , but hate now.
    When I was growing up, my mother served fish sticks every Friday(well it seemed that way). I did not hate or like fish sticks. But, if you did not eat the fish sticks, you did not eat. There was no other option.
    About five years ago, I bought some fish sticks... They were not what I expected. I truly hated them. I have not tried fish stick since.

    Peeps: a marshmallow abomination, or how a hip cannibal answers the question of what he's having for dinner.

    Yep, my dad used to make popcorn in a big cast iron skillet, good stuff. We now use a Whirly-Pop on top of the stove and that can't be beat.

    (Pictures to illustrate, as I don't know if these brands are known for you).

    White "chocolate", it makes me sick in the stomach. But as a kid, I would always pick the white Easter eggs and suck on them, until you suck a hole in it. Never chew!

    Bifi
    [​IMG]
    When I was a child, Friday evening was TV night with the family and we would get a bifi for snack. I LOVED them, would take the smallest bites, so I could enjoy it as long as possible. While my brother and sister would eat them in 2-3 bites. I can't stand the taste - or even the smell - of them anymore now!

    Kinder

    [​IMG]

    I LOVED these too! Especially the Kinder surprise egg, with a toy inside:

    Only Dutch people will know this one, but it's smoked saugage from a store called HEMA:

    I tried to find a picture, that best illustrates why I don't like it anymore. :eek:

    As a child I would always prefer creamy soups, but now I don't like them anymore, except lobster bisque.

    As mentioned many times already: fish sticks. Where's the fish?

    Any vegetables creamed. It ruins the veggies. As a kid I would love creamed spinach. Not anymore. Now I like it stir fried with garlic.


    Love the thread! @Multifarious5 :thumbsup:
    You had me laughing with the word "gag" in the title :D

    We just had one come up in dinner conversation: Chicken gizzards! When I was a kid you could get them from the fast food fried chicken places. Hearts, liver gizzards..all fried. There is no way I’d eat that now! Yuck!

    I used to LOVE candy dots, and Necco wafers and those candy hearts and ... ... I still do, if you can find them, and if you do they are about 100 times the cost of what they used to be!

    Not food, but drink. After an unfortunate incident in college, Southern Comfort is anything but comforting.
