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!"
As a kid I was told that if I drank coffee I would get fleas in my stimach, because coffe was for grown ups only. I still do not like coffe, and whenever i drink it I imagine little gnats filling my stomach. I am 23 now.
when i was little my mom told me and my brothers if we sucked to hard on a milkshake straw our ears would just suck into our head......well i beleived her till i was about 12......lol....
When I was a little girl my mom said that if you drank coffee your knees would get black and that is why she told me to never drink coffee and I still don't.
When I was little I thout Cows made Milk, horses made water and goats made apple juice!
coffee is just tea without the teabag
when i was little my cousin told me that if i drank the fizzy drink 7-UP i would grow 7 inches ... so yes i drank bottles and bottles of the stuff but never grew!
I used to think that a "Long Island Iced Tea" was simply iced tea that got spiked with rum.
And when someone mentioned "dry county", my first thought was that it did not rain there much. But this it did not take me long to figure out that it meant that they did not sell alcoholic beverages there.
i thought that soft drinks in America would explode in a person's mouth bocause they call it 'pop'.
My family went to Olive Garden for dinner once, and my little sister, then 5, asked why there were grapevines hanging on the wall. My parents convinced her that if you drink wine at the restaurant, you had to go in the back and stomp barefoot on the grapes to make more wine, so that the next people could have some. And that wine was gross, because people had to use thier stinky feet to make it. My sister, now seven, still believes thats why we shouldn't drink wine.
When I first learnt how to make drinks, I asked my aunt why she stirred the drink after adding water. She said the act will make the drink sweeter. For a long time, I thought one can make any drink sweet by stirring. And for the same reason, one cannot stir something that is naturally sweet (like orange juice, coke...) or not meant to be sweet (like soup).
My aunt used to tell her son which is my cousin that if you drink coffee your knees will turn black.
I was about 4 or 5 years old at the time. My Uncle Charlie used to drink sometimes. One night he came home and was drinking orange juice. I loved orange juice. Anyway, he was drinking a lot of it and then he started acting really funny. He sat on the stove and fell off. It scared me so bad that for years and years I refused to drink orange juice because I didn't want to be funny like Uncle Charlie and fall off of stoves. I didn't know at the time that he had doctored it with some kind of alcohol. I was finally a teenager before I tried drinking orange juice again. And to this day every time I drink it I think of my uncle falling off the stove.
When Al Capone's vault was opened, I overheard someone saying that all they found was a bottle of booze.
So I asked, "What are boos?" I was picturing opening a bottle and hearing a chorus of people booing.
When I was little my parents wouldn't let us drink Coke because they said the caffiene would stunt our growth. I have never seen any proof of this. Were they just making it up so they wouldn't have to share pop with us? My sister won't let her kids drink any dark colored pop because she thinks it has caffiene in it. I told her to read the ingredients, because color has nothing to do with it. She won't believe me.
I used to think pee was lemonade.....until I tried it.
my family always used to go to this comic book/cafe place before they got sued. i always got chocolate milk, and the waitresses and my parents had me believing that they had a chocolate cow in behind the counter making it.
I used to believe that root beer was literally beer with roots. I was often served it in restaurants, and I would ask,
"Is it freshly made?" which would of course make the grown-ups laugh. It wasn't until I was 7 I figured out that it was actually a kind of soda.
I used to beleive that a straw would float in soda because a little invisible elf would hold it up.
