We all know kids don't have a refined palette, but sometimes our taste evolves so much over our lives that even our former favorite foods because gag-worthy. We asked Cracker readers on Facebook, “What's a food you loved as a kid that you find gross now?" Not even counting boogers, some of you all ate some really disgusting things as kids, much to our enjoyment.

TELL US NOW. RANCH CHEESE, & PB SANDWICHES Katy M. tells US, For years, my son ate ranch, American cheese, and peanut butter sandwiches. He's almost 19 now and recently made one for old time's sake.

TELL US NOW. PEANUT BUTTER & ONION SANDWICH Adam N. tells US, I used to eat them all the time because Fred Savage ate them in the 1989 film Little Monsters, which was my favorite movie as a kid. So I thought it was really, really cool. Now, just the idea of it makes me gag. CRACKED.COM
