When me and my 2 brothers were young we were told that we couldn't drink 'Coca Cola' because it would make us really ill, we'd be sick and might die because we were allergic to it. One day round at my Aunties she was trying to get us to drink coke. We were convinced she was trying to kill us and we were all screaming and crying. It turned out the our mum wouldn't buy coke because it was the most expensive.

I use to believe that if you left a glass of water next to your bed while you were sleeping it would get warm because flies peed in it.

In kindergarden, I read the side of juice boxes as 'Best Served Child' as they were stictly for children and thought this was very nice of the people who made a product just for kids - grown ups were not to drink it as it said so on the side of the box!
Years later I realised that it said 'Chillled', not 'Child'.

I always thought that whereever you saw bubbles, you saw fish. So I blew bubbles in my drink and found that there were no fish.

When I was around 6 years old, me and my brother thought you could make beer from salt and pepper. Don't ask us why we thought that, I just remember mixing salt and pepper together and thinking why it hadn't turned to liquid yet.

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.

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..

While out shopping with my parents at age 3 or 4, I saw a sign that said "beverages" and I assumed that this was some sort of term for a more grown-up person - at least 8 or 9 years old. When my mother told me to run ahead and pick out some juice, I was very worried that I would be arrested or yelled at for going down the "beverages" aisle when I had very clearly not yet reached a "bever age".

I used to believe that when I put sugar in my tea and stired it to the right the sugar would disappear and that if I would stir it to the left again it would come back.

My mom told me that pink lemonade came from female lemons. I didn't clue in until I started taking science in grade seven...

I used to believe that if you drank too much you would get drunk. I didn't know it had to alcohol, so I got very worried after my sister drank a lot chocolate milk as I thought she would get drunk.

I used to think that beer was horse pee. Probably because that's what my mom told me...

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!

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.

When I was a kid, my mom wouldn't let my sister and I drink soda in the back seat of the car. For years, I thought that's what the people on the radio meant when they said "drinking and driving" was something you shouldn't do.

I used to believe energy drinks could make you get temporary super powers after you drank it. I got very disappointed when I got out of my bed at night and sneaked into the fridge and drank some. I didn't get any superpowers. Come on!
