If you didn't eat the crust on your bread "Mr Crust" would stand at the foot of you bed and haunt you at night. Another tid bit from my Mother's childhood, past on through the years.
My granny used to tell me that eating crusts put hair on your chest so obviously I didn't eat them and still don't to this day. Now thats embarrasing when someone asks why you don't eat them!!
My mom used to tell us to eat the skins of things like apples and potatoes, because she said that's where all the vitamins are. She also always made us eat the crusts of our bread, for the same reason - it took me an embarassingly long time to figure out that scam.
When I was a kid, I hated eating the crust on the bread, so my sister use to tell me that if I did not eat it I would turn into a witch.To this day I eat the crust of the bread.
I never ate the crust of my sandwiches until my old grandpa told me that if I didn't eat the crust, my "boobies" wouldn't grow.
I remember being over at my best friend's house when I was in kindergarten, and we were eating sandwiches. I got her mom to cut the crusts off for me, and Kymberly (my friend) tried to convince me to eat them by telling me that crusts made you whistle good. Being not able to whistle, I thought it was because I didn't eay my crusts. So I started eating them...but to this day, I can barely whistle.
My uncle told me that eating bread crust would put hair on my chest. Being a girl, hair on the chest was NOT a desirable trait. I refused to eat another crust of bread.
I used to believe my dad when he told me that eating the crust of my sandwich would cause hair to grow on my chest. Not an attractive prospect for a young girl!
My brother told me that there was a crust compartment where monsters lived and if I didn't eat my crusts I would naver be strong enough to beat the monsters in a fight.
When asked why he didn't finish eating the crust from his pizza, a young friend said "I don't eat the bone".
I used to think that crust was a special coating put on the bread
My mom used to tell me that I would never be able to whistle unless I ate my crusts. Ironically, it happened that way.
My mother used to tell me that if I went to a resturant, I'd better eat the crust because I was in public and If I didn't everyone in the returant would stare and think that there was something wrong with me.
My mom had me believing that, like fruits and vegetables, the crusts of bread were the healthiest part.
When I was little, my Dad used to tell me that if you left the crusts of pizza in the box and put it in the trash (in our garage) that the pizza would grow back. I remember hiding the pizza box in the garage just waiting for new pizza to grow onto the old crusts!
I used to think that the heal of the bread had no crust on it. This lasted until about age 5, but i managed to convince my younger brother of it also, and he believed it long after i realised the truth.
When my brother was young I told him if he ate the hole around the doughnut he would die.
To this day, he's 34 now, he leaves a small round crust so that he doesn't eat the hole =)
When I was about 12 years old my friend's mum told me that if I ate bread crusts my breasts would grow bigger. It didn't work, and so I still don't eat them.
My mun told me that if I ate my breadcrusts I would be able to whistle.
We were told that the bread crust is more healthy than the centre.
