I used to think that Red Bull's contained alcohol because they came in long cans and had weird ads
I Believed this until I was 12 and I asked my brother about it. I have since had a red bull at the age of 14! :D

I used to believe that Dad's (brand) Root Beer was ONLY for dads, not anyone else. One time when I was about six, I REALLY wanted a root beer, but ended up getting another kind of soda because I wasn't a dad, and I knew I'd get in trouble for drinking that root beer since I wasn't qualified.

i used to believe that in the bottom of a can of dr. pepper was a teeny, tiny little doctor with a pepper shaker in his chest pocket of his doctor's coat. i'd always look for it after i drank a can, thinking i must've already swallowed it, when i couldn't see it in the bottom of the empty can.

As a child I believed that Scotch whisky had other uses besided just drinking. For one I thought it provided the sticky substance on Scotch tape. So one day when I found that some old Scotch tape on a book of mine was no longer sticking, I tried to make it stick again by putting some of my father's Scotch on it. Needless to say, that didn't work. Knowing what I know now, I'm just glad that my father never noticed any of his Scotch to be missing. I really doubt that he would have believed my explanation if he had!

When I was very young my Grandma told me if you didn't drink your freshly squeezed orange juice straight away the vitamins would fly away. Therefore I either used to drink my juice straight away or I covered my glass to keep the vitamins in. It's wasn't until a couple of years ago that my partner (yes, I'm 35 now!!) asked why I kept putting coasters over our orange juice that I realised my Grandma may have been "economical" with the truth!!

When I was a child, I thought that alcoholic beverages came in four distinct strengths, and were named accordingly. The four categories, in increasing order of strength were: Beer, wine, whisky, and liquor. Where I live, one has to go to "liquor stores" to buy any distilled spirits. One day I asked my father why one has to go to liquor stores to buy whisky. He then told me that whisky is a type of liquor. I was so disillusioned. I had always thought that wisky was a separate category, not as strong as liquor.

My step-dad used to tell my little sister, that the coke machines were ran by monkeys and when you put your money in the monkeys would throw the coke down. And the money helped to pay for peanuts for the monkeys.

When I was a kid I noticed that my Grandfather and my Uncles had crooked teeth and the thing they all had in common was that they drank beer. So I came to the conclusion that if you drink beer it will give you crooked teeth.

My aunt told me when I was little that the wavy heat coming from the road meant you were thirsty. For years when we were all in the car together, all of us kids would say “Look, I’m thirsty!” The adults would roar with laughter, and I never could figure out why. Till much later that is.

I used to believe that when you were an adult you were only allowed to take one sip of your drink at a time. I used to practice drinking just one sip while I watched my mom do the same thing.

When I was little I had a sippy cup that when I sucked on it too hard, the little air hole in it would go "Squeeeeeeee!"

I, for the longest time, thought that there was a little girl in there screaming because she didn't want me to suck her up!
