Some things are acquired tastes, and it can take a long time to cultivate a love for them. Alcohol, spicy foods, veggies, school; all of these and more can take some getting used to but most folks start to like them once they give them a try.

A lot of vegetables. My mother is not the greatest cook and it took years to realize veggies were delicious when seasoned and cooked properly.
Running and weightlifting, I don't think anyone loves that from the get go.
Cooking. I used to think of it as such a chore until I figured out there was no law stating I had to follow a recipe EXACTLY. I learned that I could play around with different flavours and textures and it became much more enjoyable. I'm not a pro by any means but I love to get into the kitchen and cook up a good meal now.
Note: this does NOT work with baking. Do not experiment with baking.
Salad. Growing up, salad consisted of giant chunks of bitter iceberg lettuce, a couple pieces of tasteless tomato, and many large chunks of red onion. My family would then smother that in ranch dressing. I hated salad for years and hated ranch for years.
My salads now have a dark baby green mix (with spinach and all that stuff), cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, baby corn, radish, broccoli, cubed cheese and a nice vinegar and oil based dressing.
Going to the gym in the morning before work. Waking up an hour and a half earlier than normal, doing cardio again. Would have said you were crazy if you told me I'd be doing it a few years ago.
If you could bottle the feeling I have in the morning after going to the gym you'd be a billionaire. My evenings are more open, I dont have to deal with traffic, I dont have to worry about a piece of equipment I want to use being tied up. Plus it forces me to have a healthy sleep schedule. Major game changer.
Imagine Mozart, but turned up to 11.
You know how a lot of people like superheroes as kids? I hated them. I thought that most of their costumes looked stupid and was too immature to understand why everyone was beating each other up.
But starting at age 14, I actually ended up being a big fan of Marvel for a while. I don't really keep up with their movies anymore but I can say with certainty that I still like most of the ones that I have seen.
Seltzer, I used to think it tasted like rotten soda and now I think soda tastes like rotten seltzer
Seltzer is still soda, it's just anger flavored and I don't need that kind of negativity in my life.
Trailer park boys. Took about 2 seasons to get properly into it but now Sunnyvale feels like my 2nd home.
Sour patch kids, the first few time I tried them I couldn't stand how sour they were. Got some for Easter a few years later and ended up loving them, now I eat them all the time.
