Acquired tastes – Learned by substantial exposure

According to Wikipedia an acquired taste often refers to an appreciation for a food or beverage that is unlikely to be enjoyed by a person who has not had substantial exposure to it, usually because of some unfamiliar aspect of the food or beverage

They also states that some examples of tastes which normally need to be tried several times to ‘learn to like’ are wine, coffee, caviar, olives and oysters.

I like all of the so called ‘learn to like food’- except oysters cause there I’m with Woody Allen who said : “I will not eat oysters.  I want my food dead – not sick, not wounded – dead.”

Do you like  ‘learn to like food’?
