Foods you liked but went off

I used to really love olives and would eat them by the kilogram. But for some reason I just suddenly stopped liking them. I could still eat them to be polite if I was given them but now I can take or leave (mostly leave) them.

I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else with any foods?

    I used to love shepherds pie and now I can't do the two textures together (mash and mince).

    I used to eat tripe as a child used to go with dad to fish market on Friday to get it . Now I couldn't bring myself to even see it as food

    I always seem to find a food I like and then mostly only eat that for ages until I get sick of it and no longer want it.
    My parents would always remind me how as a child I only ate plain crackers for breakfast, lunch and dinner for weeks on end and wouldn't eat anything else then one day decided I didn't like them any more. I really don't like them now. 

    Even as an adult, I do the same. I'll find something I like and eat it a lot and then just not like it any more. Most recently it happened with plain Galaxy chocolate. I was eating a large bar a day and now the very thought of it makes me feel nauseous. :D

    @Biblioklept that sort of thing happens to me but not to such extremes, perhaps that’s why I went off olives

    Something else I’ve noticed is if I’m sick I’ll go off whatever food I ate just before I was sick, regardless of whether it was the food that actually made me sick. Not sure if that’s odd or just a normal reaction though, it last happened to me with ice cream but I like ice cream again now.

    I used to like strawberries until i became ill eating them without washing them first, I think it was the sprays they put on them in the field. For years whenever I thought of them i felt a bit sick. Similar with vodka but due to drinking too much of it.

    I'm not the best judge of normal or not but that definitely happens to me!! It takes me ages to get back into the food too

    I used to love Scotch Eggs till I found a dirty fingerprint on one that I bought from a supermarket. Also Chicken and Mushroom Pot Noodles, I was addicted but i find them disgusting nowadays, taste like chemicals.

    I’m going off everything very poor to no appetite really getting me down now. I loved Mac Cheese used to make my own I used 100g of Macaroni pasta then cut it down to 50g now I’m lucky if I can eat half of that. Sweet n Sour chicken with noodles another of my favs but can’t stand it now. Wish I could get some appetite back.

    Anything sweet  refined sugar laden, and FAST FOOD Junk food, and ready meals , even most canned food too, I no longer eat them, because i value my health, you are what you eat,
    Sorry I love all that refined sugar and fast food, I would rather die young with a donut in my mouth...than the health **** my sister tries to feed me. I always say live for the now because could get hit by a car tomorrow.

    Must be a child thing.

    I used to eat wheat for breakfast every day. Sandwichs 5 days a week. Now I can’t eat them because of bloating
