This is going to sound weird, but I think it fits.  When I was little (I mean 4 or 5 "little"), I used to get in trouble for pouring pickle juice or the juice from the green olive jar into a cup and drinking it.  I still enjoy pickles and olives, but I still don't know what I was thinking all those years ago!  :P  I'm surprised I didn't get sick from it.

I love pickle juice :)  I don't drink a whole cup anymore, but a little shot fresh out of the fridge is yummy

A shot of pickle juice followed by a shot of whiskey was a favorite treat in college. Can't handle it anymore!

I used to love cream cheese and jelly sandwiches as a kid. Now it makes me want to hurl. My DH still likes those sugary sweet cereals like cinnamon toast crunch. Once in a while I'll try a bite and remember that it is totally gross now.

I remember some kids book series where a character used to do that (Babysitters Club, maybe ?) I tried it once and found it disgusting.   :P The only time it tastes good to me is if it's guava, mango or passionfruit jelly with cream cheese.

I ate mayo sandwiches too, although it was real mayo.  For some reason, the mayonaise jar was kept in a lower cabinet.  The bread was in a drawer next to it.  When I was too little to pull open the refrigerator door (it required a pretty hard yank), I'd make sandwiches out of what I could reach.  Peanut butter must have been in that same cabinet, but the jelly was in the fridge, and one cannot have PB without the J. 

I seem to remember making ketchup sandwiches, but the mayo ones were better.

When I was a kid, my favorite after-school snack was a mayo and potato chip sandwich.  I also liked drinking pickle juice.  When I was feeling sophisticated a mustard sandwich was in order.  It's a wonder I survived to adulthood.

Have you tried it the other way around? First whiskey, then pickle juice; it's a pickleback. I can't do whiskey but i have friends that love the pickleback.
It's alright, man. I'm only bleeding, man. Stay hungry, stay free, and do the best you can.

Dear Team Bakhta,

When I was a child, I was in college before I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Cream cheese and jelly was the default in our family.  I still think peanut butter is a bit strange and the jelly should be Welche's Grapelade.

I find grape jelly revolting. Bizarrely, though, it is my dad's absolute favorite jelly flavor.

My husband still drinks the pickle juice.  Not a full cup but will take a swig out of the jar.  He's the only one who eats those pickles so whatever.

I was gonna say, a cream cheese and jelly sandwich actually sounds pretty tasty. I've put cream cheese and jelly on a bagel before, so I'm guessing it wouldn't be all that different. I'm a strawberry jelly fan though. I like grape too, but strawberry is always my first choice. :)

Oh! When we were little kids, my best friend would eat butter sandwiches! I don't think she still eats them though, hehe. Her mom would make me a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, and make her a butter sandwich. :)

Cream cheese and blackcurrant Jam or Jelly. Divine.  Almost as good Cream cheese and Bramble Jelly. At a pinch Cream Cheese and Lemon Curd.

I used to like grape jelly while gagging at the thought of strawberry.  Now I can eat the strawberry jelly if that's all that's there, but I'm not a big fan of grape anymore.  I have trouble spreading it without tearing up the bread.  My favorite is blackberry jam!  I think it tastes so much better, and it's easy to spread.  Plus, no seeds.

We used to eat peanut butter, grape jelly, and butter sandwiches, on white bread. Also the same combo on saltine crackers. The thought even revolts me now - I can't imagine eating one. Blech!

I also remember as a child loving the taste of raw (well, right out of the refrigerator) hot dogs, and spaghettios out of the can, cold. The combination was a favorite. I can't even fathom eating that now - the last time I had spaghettios, warm, the were vile. Cold would be right out.

Spaghetti with ketchup, sometimes with some hot dogs chopped up in it. I totally loved it as a kid, but it seems really weird to me now.

I adored cotton candy as a child, but when I tried it as an adult - big letdown!

Also peanuts - I'm not allergic, but when I was about 10 I ate so many I got sick, was mistakenly diagnosed with appendicitis and had the (completely healthy) organ unceremoniously whipped out.  That set up so many negative associations I can't deal with anything remotely peanutty now.  As a mother of 4 and Nana of 6, I do a lot of gagging over fixing PB sandwiches!  (BTW, anyone else grow up hearing them referred to as 'monkey nuts?')

They're still monkey nuts in our house!

Pizza Hut pizza. When I was a teenager pepperoni and the new cheese-stuffed crust was so incredibly awesome. As I've gotten older I'll occasionally order one all for myself and I'm usually very disappointed. The bottom crust is so thin and bland, it seems like there's hardly any cheese in the "cheese-stuffed crust," and of course it's quite greasy but not in that "deliciously greasy" way. The other day I thought about ordering one and then thought, "No, remember how icky it was last time. Don't even bother." And I didn't. :(

I do wonder if there could be differences between the stores that make them? Sometimes when I visit my parents we get Pizza Hut pizza from my hometown store and it's usually better than my (very low) expectations.

Similar with McDonald's cheeseburgers. I devoured them whenever I could as a kid, then went through a sad "adult" phase when I realized they were terrible. I still get one every once in a while, and randomly it will be super-awesome, enough to keep me coming back. We have several different McDonald's in town that I buy from and I've never noticed if the awesome cheeseburgers are coming from one particular store or not.

When I was a kid, we would butter and sugar sandwiches.  We loved them.  I cannot imagine why.  I'm sure my mom gave it to us because it was relatively cheap and with 7 kids and never a large amount of money coming in, you do what you can.
