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.
my dad used to tell me that if I ate in bed that ants would come out at night and eat my eyeballs!
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 :)
When I was younger my favourite meal was Haggis and Rice :O) too avoid making it more than once a month my father told me it was an elusive animal with three legs that lived in Scotland and only when he went hunting with Uncle John did they manage to catch one :O)
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.
When I was little I thought I was the only one in the world that ate breakfast. So one day at my pre-school I was talking to one of my about how I had a waffle for breakfast. He replied "I did too!" and I didn't believe him.
When I was little, I remember eating a type of after-dinner mint that had the name "hospitality mint" printed on the wrapper. I thought that the word "hospitality" meant "hospital" and so I was nervous about eating the mints because I thought they had medicine in them!
I never wanted to eat tapioca because my dad told me it was made out of fish eggs. I just recently found out that was not true. I'm 19.
When I was little my sister told me you could only eat dessert with a dessert spoon (which was what we called regular spoons) so I spent 14 years eating everything else with a tea spoon except for my dessert then my boyfriend told me that was nuts
I used to believe mushrooms were a meat.
When I was a child, I believed that if I put my left overs in zip lock baggies that they children in third world countried from the commercial would get uncontaminated food.
I used to think preserves (like jam) and preservatives were the same thing and I heard people say preservatives were bad for you so I wondered why people would eat pure preservatives
When I was five, I told my mom my theory that sausage meat came from lions. She just went with it and I think I held that belief for a while.
when i was little, after every meal my mom told me to leave a little bit of food on my plate for my guardian angel. when i was done eating i pushed all the food that was left on my plate to the center and then leave the table. the plate was always gone in the morning so that meant my angel ate it all
My mom once told me that there were bugs that lived in the tips of bananas and that you should always break off the ends before eating the banana. I used to get uncomfortable watching people eat bananas, wondering why they were eating the bugs. I'm still a bit uneasy about eating the ends to this day.
I thought until fairly recently that bacon came from the skin of a pig and that's why it was so thin
When I was 6 years old I used to love honey, on toast or by itself. Then one day my sister told me that if I ate any more honey I would turn into a bee, because she could see a stripe on my nose. I got really scared and started crying.
Now I know that there was never any stripe and that I could eat as much honey as I want and I wouldn't turn into a bee, but I've gone off it now.
When I saw a fruit pie labelled "Harvest Fruit Pie", I thought that meant you were only supposed to eat it at Harvest Festival time.
I used to believe that the reason why some packs of bacon were saltier than others was because some pigs were more salty naturally.
