I used to believe that a salad bar was just like a three musketeers bar but green and when you bit into it it would have carrots and lettuce and veggies in it. I believed this till i was like 10 and i'm now 14. I'm a dork.
When i was young, i used to believe that is kiwi fruits, black stones were dead buterflies
When i was young, i used to believe that when i ate a stone, a tree would grow in my stomach
I used to think Spinaches made you strong.
This is a holiday we had growing up that was such an intrinsic part of our family that none of us really even questioned it's validity. It was just Ravioli Sunday and honestly it didn't dawned on us until our mid teens that this may just be a family affair.
My grandmother on my mom's side would make 100 raviolis in one day. The entire family would come by that afternoon for "Ravioli Sunday".
Yea I know, we are a little slow...
I fully believed, up until about 6 years old, that the word 'accident' was a noun that meant 'burnt toast'.
My brother used to believe there was special money to be used at each fast food place, especially McDonald's. This belief stemmed from my mother's favorite response when we'd ask to go to Mickey D's: "I don't HAVE any McDonald's money right now!"
I thought that "peameal bacon" was actually "female bacon" and that "Hollandaise sauce" was "Holiday sauce" 'cause you only have it on holidays.
When I was about 6 or so I told my dad that I didn't want to eat spare ribs anymore cause I didn't want to hurt pigs. My dad replied, "Don't worry, they are only his spare ribs, he's got another set." I believed this for longer than I care to admit...
Until I was about 8 or 9, I believed that baled hay (like the big rolled bales) was Shredded Wheat. My parents told me that when it rained, they shrank down and the cereal people put them in the boxes.
I used to believe that Haggis (Scottish traditional dish) was in fact a type of animal that ran wild in the Highlands!
That because Gerber Baby Food had a baby on it real babies were put in there. Thanks a lot cousin!
I love beef and broccoli and as a kid to get me to eat it all my mother told me that the white things in it were white carrot slices. In the first few months of dating my now wife I mentioned that there were not a lot of white carrots in a particular beef and broccoli dish, after much laughter she told me they were bamboo shoots not white carrots.
I used to believe that eating chicken skin will give me nightmares.
When my sister and I were very little, my mother wanted to emphasize to us that you do no chew and swallow hard candies because she didn't want us choking. So she called them "suck-ons". Unfortunately, she never bothered to tell us later in life that NO ONE ELSE calls them this. To this day (I'm 24) I have to still retrain my conditioned brain to remember that they are "hard candies" and not "suck-ons".
I was about 16 years old before I saw a real live tuna fish. Until then I believed they were about the size of bait fish, and that they were peeled with tweezers. Hence, the small can!!
One summer while on a long road trip (Minnesota to Florida) with my family, my Dad bought a bunch of beef jerky as snacks. I was really bored and 14 years old, and I convinced my 6 year old sister that jerky was tree bark. My then 13 year old brother continued the joke, and my little sister spent the better part of 2 weeks trying to rip bark off of trees in florida. She stopped eventually after we (my parents included) told her that it was only certain kinds of trees that had the right bark. It took another 2 or 3 years for her to figure out the truth.
My aunty Julie told me when I was young that Tartare sauce was made out of turtles, My Sister , Brother and I all believed this till we were in our late teens, not finding out till I mentioned it at a resturant to my boyfriend who was having on fish! I got upset with him and said he shouldn't eat it because they killed baby turtles............obviously he preceded to laugh at me and explain they were Gherkins!
When I was younger, I used to think that Original flavored chips were Onion flavored. I was such a good reader.
Aswell as believeing that my toys came to life when I wasn't looking, I also thought the fruit and veg in the fridge did too so I always used to yank the door open quickly to catch them, or I'd spend ages looking in the fridge with the door only slightly open hoping to trick them into coming alive.
