In terms of food or drink relation, I have. A few examples of this would be:
I used to be a huge lover of sodas. Dr. Pepper was my favorite soda, and occasionally Pepsi and Coke. My family used to buy soda quite a lot, and it was very addictive. But once I moved in with my sister three years ago, we stopped buying soda. We get it every once in a while to satisfy our urges, but like the last time we bought a full case of soda was at least four to six months ago. Of course, we do get soda if we go to the movies once in a blue moon, or even sometimes when I want to splurge at a restaurant (which we only go, again, once in a blue moon, and even then, I mostly get water). But when I had to change my occupation at the start of COVID where I went from working bright and early in the mornings (7-2ish) as a part-time breakfast attendant, to working graveyard shifts as a front desk clerk (11-7) full-time, I started drinking energy drinks once in a while and got hooked on them. I now drink Monsters roughly twice a week (on my weekends). In fact, I’m drinking one now. xD But whenever I drink soda, particularly Dr. Pepper (which was my favorite), it doesn’t taste that great anymore.
Growing up, my parents used to buy us Top Ramen. Pretty simple thing to make, and it was very cheap (a dollar a package; they would often buy an entire case which would last us a full two weeks sometimes). But for some reason, when we moved here to middle of nowhere Kansas back in 2019, the main product we used to buy discontinued it where we live sometime in 2020 (I’m guessing?) because we couldn’t find it anywhere. All the stores around had Top Ramen, but it wasn’t the same product—it came from a different company. And they tasted really, really weird. Like, gross weird. And had an after-taste to it that would stay in your mouth all day… it made me want to barf sometimes. We stopped getting them, even those Top Ramen cups, and actually changed it out for Nissin Chow Mein noodles and they taste so amazing, even to a point where when we visited our sister up in Ohio who has access to the OG Top Ramen, it wasn’t the same, and I can’t go back anyway.
I grew up eating Hot Cheetos, but only the regular kind. It wasn’t until I was an older teen when my brother introduced me to the ones with lime. Though he used to put actual lime juice in his, and I hated it because it made the chip all soggy and gross. But if you just buy the ones with the lime flavoring all ready, it tastes ten times better. And every time I buy a bag of the normal ones, they don’t taste as flavorful as the ones with lime lol.
Another thing I grew up on was white people tacos, which is basically ground beef (seasoned with taco seasoning) with lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa, and sour cream on a soft oil-covered corn tortilla. They have a comfort to them, but in 2018 when we lived in California, my sister took me to this little hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Gilroy to have me try my very first “street taco” (which, with what we had, was Al Pastor with chopped onion and cilantro on two soft corn tortillas (I think?) with a side of limes) and now I can’t go back to white people tacos. Tacos have always been my favorite food, but I had only ever had the one I grew up on. Eating authentic Mexican tacos changed my entire life. Everywhere we go, I try to find new taco trucks to hopefully replicate that same taco I had in Gilroy, but none have succeeded. However, our local taco truck sells amazing carne asada tacos (same as the Al Pastor ones, just different meats) and any time I have a taco craving? They’re there for me. c:
