When I was a little girl, my mom told me that it was "against the law" for children to drink beverages that contained caffeine. In kindergarten, my best friend was drinking Coke and I tried to get her to stop because I thought she'd be arrested.
when i was little my mom told me that mountain dew was donkey pee and i didnt drink it foy YEARS!!!!EWWWW!!
When I was around 8 or 9 years old, I went over a friend's house and I saw that there were tons of cans laying around her back yard by the BBQ pit. They were Red Bull cans, but I thought they were beer cans because they looked a lot like what my parents and their friends drink. When I asked my friend about them, she told me her dad drinks at least five a day. After that I was a little scared to go over her house when her dad was home because I thought he was an alcoholic!
I thought the little push indicators on the top of a fountain drink lid actually changed the flavors of the drink when u pushed them; I would never push the diet one.
I used to believe that coffee was tea with milk in it.
Growing up, I always heard the term "alcoholic" said with the word "beverage." I therefore thought that beverage was a term for an alcoholic drink. When we would stop at a gas station I would refuse to get a drink if the sign above the drinks said "Beverages." I thought it was for adults only. One time I saw my grandmother get a ginger ale from the Beverages section of a gas station and because I had also heard the term ale in regards to alcoholic drinks, I came to the conclusion that ginger ale was alcoholic.
It took me years to learn otherwise. All those times I declined a sip of ginger ale, she probably thought I just wasn't thirsty or didn't want her germs.
I thought she was trying to offer me a sip of booze!
I used to believe that "other" was another name for water, because that was what the lids at Burger King said.
When I was 12 or 13 my mom always used to let me order "virgin" pina coladas when we went out for dinner. i thought she was saying "version" until one day when I was 16 or 17 I went out with my friends and tried to order a "version" drink. my friends will never let me live that one down..
I used to believe that the devices that we used extensively would get tired, which is why we needed to turn them off. One day, it struck me that the same devices that get "tired" should also be thirsty, as I was after playing around outside.
So, I started quenching the thirst of the inanimate objects I valued, with coke, which included the telephone in the living room, my portable cassette player, my game console, and a couple of remote controlled cars (as well as several action figures.)
My mother stopped me just in time before I moved on to "help" the living room TV.
I used to believe that stirring my tea would make the sugar appear.
I used to be in awe when I saw the workers filling the soda cups through the take-out window, and I thought that the machines "knew" which size cup it was filling up, and that it knew when to stop when it was full!
If you drank water before breakfast it would make you sick.
I knew that if you waited a little bit, food and drinks would cool down. I was astonished that my cold soda kept getting warmer instead.
My best friend and I would take colored chalk and grind it down to poweder. We would them put the powdered chalk into a cup and mix in sugar and water thinking it was Kool Aid. The thing is, we drank it all too!
For probably about a decade, I believed that the chocolate drink "Yoohoo" was made with seaweed. My uncle told me it was one of the ingredients when I was about 5 years old, and I never drank it again after that. It wasn't until I was about 15 when a friend made me read the ingredient label that I realized I had been fooled all those years!
I never knew why my grandma would stir her tea, so I came to believe that stirring a drink in a circular motion would cool it down, while stirring it in a side-to-side motion would heat it up.
i use to belief that when you pushed the buttons on the lid of a fast food drink, it would change the flavor of the drink.
When I was very young I was with my parents on an evening visit to their friends house. I was playing with their daughter when I heard the blender. I saw what looked like an Icee and I very loudly insisted on having some. I quickly found out that looks can be deceiving. It may look the same but a daiquiri is NOT an Icee.
I used to believe that if I stuck my finger in a carbonated drink I could stop it from fizzing over the top of the glass and down the side. My uncle with a sense of humor convinced me of that one when I was a kid.
I used to think that pressing that "Diet" button in a soft drink cup somehow turned it into a diet soda.
