What food/drink did you love when you were a child, but can't stomach now?

Strawberry flavored milk. Just the thought of it makes me gag a little.

    Coke. It's like drinking a bottle of acid. More so than any other cola/ soda, other than maybe Pepsi. But I've never liked Pepsi anyway.

    Brussels Sprouts. I absolutely loved them as a kid. Now, I don't like them cooked in any way.

    The reverse is true for broccoli though. Can't get enough of it now.

    Blue cheese, coconut macaroons and marshmallows (ate too many of those last two and still have a pretty significant taste aversion to them)

    Yeah, I was just thinking of these. I didn't love them as a kid, but I enjoyed them well enough, and not the idea makes me gag.

    Orange pop, that was what I always got if we went to McD's.

    Fish sticks.

    Packaged snack cakes like Twinkies, Lil' Debbie cakes, etc. I used to get them in my lunches when I was a kid and loved them. Now they don't even taste like food.

    I agree with this one, definitely. I lived for Ding Dongs and Little Debbies as a kid and preteen. By high school they grossed me out. I even worked for Wonder Hostess right out of college and did not want the endless free snack cakes that were available. I lost like 15 lb without trying being around all that stuff daily (I needed to lose 115+ lb but still it was cool).

    Also agree with the strawberry milk! I liked it even 4-5 years ago but tried a little bottle of Nesquik strawberry recently and it just tasted like pink, sugar flavored milk to me, I couldn't even get a strawberry flavor from that - except if I used my imagination, I guess.

    Unfortunately, I still love most of the stuff I did as a kid though...Oreos & Famous Amos cookies with milk for dipping, cheeseburgers from just about any fast food place, pepperoni deep dish from Pizza Hut, and I'd probably still take down one of the XL meatballs-and-cheese Hot Pockets, given the chance.

    Oh, I thought of one! As a kid, I used to break a piece of American cheese into quarters, put each on a saltine, and heat them in the microwave. Best after school snack ever, IM (as a child) O. Now, I haven't had a saltine in ages, and don't like American cheese.

    Another, Nilla wafers in milk. I'd dunk them longer and longer until the milk was filled with cookie and then drink it.
