My friend is the one who realized that "Lose Yourself" is a song, after he heard me mentioning this puzzle, so credit goes to him :) $\endgroup$ – Red Octopus Jul 22 '17 at 4:38

Are you

Medication?

Sometimes sweet, but sometimes not so much.

Some medication is sugar-coated, and there also exist sugar pills.

Sometimes with treasure inside and sometimes without.

A bit foggy on this one--perhaps this refers to pills with a casing, where the medication is on the inside?

Sometimes written with initials, but sometimes spelled out.

Tablets generally have some initials or the name of the drug on them.

Sometimes small and colorful and sometimes large and white.

Medication comes in many different colors and shapes, and are often white.

Sometimes you don't want to eat me, but sometimes you might.

Kids (and sometimes adults) generally find taking medication to be a chore, but sometimes you really need an aspirin.

Sometimes I can be found in a pantry on a shelf, but if not you just might lose yourself.

Some people store their medication in the pantry, and if you lose medication for a serious disease, that could be dangerous (mentally or physically).
