My mom used to cook whole, shelled shrimp (heads and all) in soups and stuff. And I always thought their eyeballs were what made peppercorns.

When I was little I used to believe that food and water would go to separate stomachs because people would always cough and say "went down the wrong pipe" whenever they kinda choke out their food.

I was ten before my parents were able to convince me that the restaurants did not, in fact, take the food that people did not finish and serve it to other patrons. Why the hell were all the old people pointing at the bread basket and saying "See? That's how they get ya! They get ya to fill up on bread so you can't finish ya meal!" What was I supposed to think they were doing with unfinished food?

I used to believe tiger tail ice cream was made of real tigers, and would never eat it because of that.

When I was little, I thought chocolate mousse, was chocolate mouse. I remember the first time I ordered it I told my mom I wanted the head, because I didn't think mouse tail would taste good even when covered in chocolate.

I used to think that the chocolate/vanilla/strawberry mix ice cream was called Napoleon (instead of neopolitan) and couldn't understand why a French emperor got an ice cream flavor named after him.

I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.

She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.

My mom is full Chinese, so growing up in an Asian household, I used to believe that rice always came from a rice cooker. I was shocked when I ate dinner at a friend's house, and their rice was cooked in a pot on the stove.

When I was 5 my parents told me soy sauce came from kids in china squeezing grass hopper blood into the bottles .... I believed it well into my teens where I argued with a friend about how I was right!! Later googled it ... They lied! Also found out cotton candy is not made of spider webs!

I used to think that animals used to grow meat that could be cut from them without killing them, just like you pick an apple from a tree without seriously harming it.

When I was a little girl, I asked my dad what the little things in tapioca pudding were. He told me they were fish eyeballs. I was in college before I knew that tapioca was not fish flavored.

When I was younger my favorite food was fish sticks. Before I knew the anatomy of any living thing or even knew how to spell my own name I knew these tasty treats as fish dicks. I was never corrected growing up because when I said fish dicks it sounded almost the exact same as fish sticks. It wasn't until my mid to late teens until I realized I was saying it wrong. I actually remember looking in my moms freezer one day and thinking "oh my mom bought fish sticks... It must be the off brand!" Needless to say I do not care for fish STICKS as an adult :)

I used to believe that french fries were stuffed with mashed potatoes... but I could never figure out how they got in there.

When I was very young, I used to believe that salt and sugar were opposites. Once, (maybe more than once), I ate enough sugar to get sick. So I tried to then eat salt as an antidote. It didn't work as well as I anticipated.
