My mom didn't want me to choke on bubblegum when i was younger, so she always used to tell me that if i ate bubblegum while riding in the car, or talked with it in my mouth, it would automatically roll down my throat and would choke.
I believed chewing gum was made out of the eyes of deer.
Starburst candy used to air commercials where they would show a person popping a candy into their mouth, and then the camera would switch to showing that person riding an exhilarating roller coaster ride, or sailing off the top of a mountain on a hang-glider. I guess this was to show how exciting the taste of Starburst candy was.
Except I took the commercials literally and thought that if I ate a Starburst candy, that I would instantly get shot off a cliff or sent flying around in a crazy (scary!) roller coaster. I held this fear until I was about 7!
Once when my mom was at the dentist and there was this guy with HORIBLE teeth, and he was sitting next to me when i was chewing my gum, and he told me that gum was made from a cats toung, and i believed and spit it out right that second, and when we were leaving i told my mom what he had said and she said it was true, i was devestated! lol

My dad once told me that if everyone threw their gum out of their car windows, the city wouldn't have to fill all the pot holes. I was 12 before I realized he was joking. Unfortunately, I throw like a girl (because I am) and hit the car next to us instead of the street. That took some 'splanin.
When I was younger my parents, my grandmother, and my teachers told me that if you swallowed your gum, it would stay there forever unless you had the doctor take it out.

I freaked out even more and started crying, my dad just laughed I mean seriously what type of father does that to a child!!
When I was little, my sister told me that if I swallowed chewing gum, or just any lollie without chewing it, I would die. I remember a teacher handing out lollies. Then I swallowed mine and I was nearly crying. I'll never let my sister forget that.
