My mother often told me, "You'll eat it, and you'll like it!"

Hmmm, I would say I could be conditioned to like something that I never had before.
However if it's something I already don't like, I could not be conditioned to like it---Ever.

I could not stand yellow cheese when I was young. <25 I would only eat white cheese. Any yellow cheese would make me gag.
When my wife got pregnant with our first kid. I started craving chili cheeseburgers and now like almost any cheeses

Years ago I worked with some Inuit students from Alaska. I asked them as a people what they were most proud of. Quickly and unanimously they said, “We can eat anything.” I’ve never forgotten that. I often wonder if they can eat cilantro because I can’t stomach that stuff.
