People Reveal The Food They Thought Would Be Disgusting But They Actually Loved

[rebelmouse-image 18358541 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Food is essential. On the basic level we need it to live. Food can also be exciting and scary. A cuisine from another culture? Hello. It may have a strange color, vibe or texture so don't ever taste it. But some of us have learned that internal assumption can be a mistake. You don't know until you try. It's like dating... just taste it and keep swiping right. You never know.

Redditor _MikeWillHugYou wondered how the tastes of the public have changed over life by asking_ What food did you just assume you'd hate but, when you finally tried it, it turned out to be delicious?

WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?

Fried squid. Now it's my favorite form of seafood.

OH YES! GIMME SOME CHEESE AND A CRACKER.

[rebelmouse-image 18358542 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hummus.

GOOD TO BE STICKY AND SWEET.

[rebelmouse-image 18358543 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dates. I spent many years thinking it was sour but turns out it is sickly sweet (which i like).

PUTIN'S FAVORITE!!

[rebelmouse-image 18358544 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Borscht. My friend and I got a bowl to share the first time we went to a Russian restaurant, and after the first taste I wanted to steal it all for myself.

NOW THIS IS A FAVORITE FOR EVERYONE!!

[rebelmouse-image 18355996 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Asparagus. Turned into one of my favorite foods.

3 YESES FOR KOREAN CUISINE!

[rebelmouse-image 18979685 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Kimchi!

JUST ALWAYS THINK "CANDY!" YOU CAN'T LOSE.

[rebelmouse-image 18979686 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Persimmons. They look like orange tomatoes, and I hate tomatoes. Found out they taste like candy. Still hate tomatoes though.

DALE TACOS DALE!!

[rebelmouse-image 18979687 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tacos de lengua or tacos de cabeza. My dad bought me some in TJ without telling me what they were until after. I look forward to it now when i go visit him.

THE PERFECT MIX!

[rebelmouse-image 18979688 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Breakfast burritos. I thought the combination of egg and tortillas sounded terrible. Then I had one because a friend cooked and I wanted to be polite, and my life changed forever.

WHERE ARE MY TORTILLA CHIPS?

[rebelmouse-image 18979689 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Guacamole!

TATSE YOUR CULTURE.

[rebelmouse-image 18979690 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As an Arab, I am embarrassed to admit I didn't eat shawarma for the first 18 years of my life. So many missed opportunities.

NO! I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY!

[rebelmouse-image 18979691 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Anchovies! They get so much negative press but they're f***ing delicious. Plus I hear they'll be worth a ton of cash in the future.

FOR MARTINIS OR PIZZA?

[rebelmouse-image 18360778 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Olives. I remember long time ago as a kid i tried it and was disgusted. Not so long ago tasted it once again on a pizza and realized it's sweeter than i remember. Now it's my favorite pizza topping.

NECTAR OF THE GODS.

[rebelmouse-image 18356277 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Strawberries. Never went near them as a kid or a teenager. I start working in the fresh produce section of a supermarket and we had a huge sale on them so had a couple of pallets in the storeroom one morning and they smelled incredible. Had to try one and have been hooked on them ever since.

CHEESE FIRST! ALWAYS!

[rebelmouse-image 18979692 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Soft cheese. I'm in my 40s and I only discovered it about five years ago. I always thought it just looked gross and squishy but my favorite dinner now is Camembert and crackers. Yuuuuuum.

A PICNIC FAVORITE!

[rebelmouse-image 18979693 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pickles. I think I saw it somewhere here on Reddit where someone eat a whole jar of pickles and he almost pooped his gut out, I remember thinking why would people love sour cucumber so much. But then I tried it once in my subway, I absolutely love it. And I was completely sold when I tried my friend's kartoffelsalat, the pickle just bring it to a whole new level.

EAT ALL YOUR GREENS.

[rebelmouse-image 18979694 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Brussels Sprouts.

YOU NEVER KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY.

[rebelmouse-image 18979695 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Spam. Always thought it was a joke. Turns out it's great! Slice it thin, fry it up nice & crispy, really awesome. Also, musubi.

OH LA-LA...

[rebelmouse-image 18979696 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Escargot. But it's really just an excuse to eat garlic butter.

Y'ALL BEEN MISSING OUT!

[rebelmouse-image 18979697 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Okra and eggplant.

FORGET TUNA!!

[rebelmouse-image 18979698 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My parents only ever bought canned salmon not that I hated it but it just wasn't my jam. Thought that I just didn't like salmon.

When I was about 25 i was at a party drinking but didn't eat all day, the snacking options were the crumbs of a bag of chips or smoked salmon on a cracker with a bit of cream cheese.. hesitated because salmon seemed so meh to me but got to a point it was eat it or leave and go grab a bite.. Decided to give it a try and was instantly in love.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
