Thr for me.

Firstly - Cauliflower, couldn't get interested. Now I love the soup, as a side dish, or my own personal catnip: Cauliflower cheese.

Secondly - Sweetcorn. It randomly used to make me vomit. Now I love it.

Thirdly, and bizarrely - curry! My mum was a fairly traditional cook who was taught to cook by her mum, who was taught to cook by her mum etc. Consequently the nearest I used to get to curry was either a horrifyingly fruity variety at school or a Vesta chinese. Then one fateful night on an evening out with a (much more worldly-wise) friend we nosed in to an Indian restaurant after hours. My eyes were opened and I've never looked back.

Mince pies. Never thought I liked them until 3 years ago and I bit in to one by accident thinking it was an apple pie. I kinda wish that I didn't like them as it's better for my waistline

Walnuts, taste like licking old books to me, why bother when you have Cashews, Almonds, Pistachios etc ?

I never have eaten Prawns, except those that lurk in late night Spring Rolls, tried some the other week when out with the missus, to shut her up and they were ok.

Same with most Seafood, apart from normal white fish, my missus will eat pretty much anything like that, I joke that I have to lock my tropical fish tank...

Olives.

Always thought they were the work of the devil. Now I love them whether its on a pizza, chopped and diced and thrown into pasta, eaten on their own. It matters not.
How does he/she literally inhale them?
And why hasn't #3 got a closing bracket after it!!!

To this day my borther (36 years old) has never had cheese, or a Pizza... He doesn't like the way it looks!

Black Pudding.

Can’t get past the concept, but I’m told once you’ve tried it, you’re hooked (much like Teslas apparently).

Probably for the same reason that your question has three exclamation marks and no question marks:

Idiocy.

Tried it after about 30 years, I think I'll wait another 30 thanks.

Thats a good one.

Do you drink tea? or are you just not into hot beverages?

I could say the same about Cocaine.. but what puts me off the most is that the majority of people that I see taking it / offering it to me are tts.
Have a cup of tea with breakfast at the weekends but that’s all. Never bother through the week.

My dad won't eat cheesecake as he believes it's the same as regular cheese and won't entertain the idea it's not.

My sister refused to eat strawberries till she turned 37

Ive never drank tea, ever. The idea is repugnant. I'm 37.

Walnutophobia? It might have been the human skull/brain misperception but it's
turned into walnutpophilia so that's fine.

For me, I worked in the battery hen bit of a farm, collecting eggs, mucking out
and running the slaughter line. I always liked eggs but haven't eaten hen, or any fowl, for decades.

Coffee.

I drank my first cup of coffee about two months ago, after managing to avoid the stuff for almost 60 years.

We've just moved into a new house and our neighbours invited us in for "a coffee".

I assumed I'd have a choice of beverage. However, out came the caffetiere(sp?) thing and, with no tea based option offered, as a true Brit, I thanked our hosts and drank every single drop. Much to the amusement of Mrs B.

It was just as awful as I'd imagined. Never again!

Ah, just realised I've missed out on caravans. After visiting some folks in one on a campsite the past weekend, I intend to keep it that way too.

Tesco Meal Deal. Last weak I discovered it's cheaper to by a drink with a sandwich and crisps even if you chuck it in the bin as you walk out of the door.
