(This one isn't even from childhood, I was about 17 for this...) There's a doughnut shop I go to which sells "sour cream doughnuts" - that is, doughnuts with a little sour cream added to the batter to make it thicker. But apparently no one ever explained this to me; because at some point, after years of frequenting that doughnut shop, I had roughly this conversation with my mom:
ME: Oh no - I think they put sour cream doughnut holes in with the rest of ours!
MOM: So just don't eat them.
ME: But...they're all in the same box. Won't the sour cream rub off on the others?
That's right - I'd been seeing those doughnuts in the display case and assuming that the standard white sugar glaze on them was, in fact, a light coating of sour cream. For years. I never questioned the idea that people would actually want to eat something like that - I've always been a picky eater, so I just assumed it was one of those food things I didn't "get".
