I used to believe that when you shook a soda bottle ( like a liter size) it would explode and flood the whole room. so i decided that i wanted a explosion of sprite, so i took a liter of sprite (unopened) and shook as much as i could, and when i opened it, it exploded all in my face. and unfortunately not flooding the whole room

For some weird reason my dad always called ice tea "Monkey Juice". I thought sense milk came from cows then Monkey Juice must come from monkeys. I didnt realize that Monkey Juice wasnt a drink until I was 6 talking to my friends about it.

My little sister (not a native English speaker) thought that the name of the "7-Up"soda is actually Zup, and the pronunciation "sevenup" is just one of the irregularities of the English language.

You know how water damage in buildings ceilings can leave a brown stain? When I was in elementary school I used to think that those strange brown circles were coffee stains. Like, some teacher was surprised and jumped, causing her coffee to fly out of the mug and splatter on the ceiling.

When I was younger I thought that the popping sound in my soda was tons of people clapping. Then I felt bad after I drank the soda.

When I was little, I used to think that the soda machines in restaurants were hooked to pipes that came directly from the factory. The first time I encountered one that had run out, I was confused, but then I said, "Oh! The factory must be closed." Naturally, everyone else had no idea what I meant.

My sister's friend thought that a "Hard" drink meant it was extra sweet. She drank a bunch of 'Mike's Hard Lemonade' without noticing.

When I was younger my friends convinced me that Dr. Pepper tasted like actual black pepper. [hanging head in shame] And I remember thinking to myself whenever I saw someone drinking it "How can they drink pepper?!??!" I finally got the guts to try it when I was like...18 or 19. I'm 25 now and it's my 2nd fave soda. (Pepsi rules the world!!!)

I used to see those little codes for contests that Pepsi put on their bottle tops, and I believed there was a little person trapped inside trying to talk to me through the cap. So the first time I saw it, I was running through the house at age 8 screaming, "The soda is communicating! The sodais communicating!"
