What do you like in a state other than its "proper" one? Frozen rather than chilled? Stale rather than fresh? etc.

I recently ate a Temple orange that had inadvertently gotten semi-frozen in my office minifridge of ancient manufacture. It was amazingly delicious, far more exciting to eat in this state (like what an orange popsicle might dream of being) than it would have been if it were just chilled. Since then I've been torturing my oranges in this fashion and they all taste better this way.
I also prefer some candy (notably Twizzlers) stale to their fresh counterparts. I'm sure there are others that I can't bring to mind.
How about you? Anything you find more delicious in a state other than its usual, accepted edible one?
The only way I'll eat puffy Cheetos is stale. I ate them that way when I was at the beach when I was a kid. They develop an incredible chewiness when exposed to the sea air for an extended amount of time.
Totally agree with stale Cheetos, and I love stale Peeps - any color and variety. I'm partial to cold refrigerated red licorice whips as well.
I like green salads and fruit salads at room temp. I've actually microwaved the latter in order to hasten the warm up from the fridge.
And I once accidentally thawed a pint of vanilla Haagen Dazs overnight in the fridge. Made it waaay too easy to eat the entire pint. It was so much better than the frozen stuff.
