Seeing my nieces and nephews at Christmas Eve dinner reminded me about how little I knew about food as a kid. I thought Philadelphia cheese steaks were made with Philadelphia brand cream cheese and I certainly never wanted to try one. On a tangential note, I assumed that cheese cake was a regular cake made with cheddar or something and that just sounded gross. What foods did you badly misunderstand or wrongly dismiss out of hand when you were a child?
I’m not particularly interested in just hearing a list of foods you didn’t like when you were a child but love now but since I’m not the boss of you, well, post what you will.
