When i was little i used to think brocclie (sp?) were little trees and I would shake the before i ate them just incase there was a birds nest in there.
I've always liked Quaker products... oh so yummy. But when I first moved to the U.S. they called it by another name. I wasn't sure how you pronounced it but I thought it sounded like 'Quacker' like a duck quacking. Until 5th grade I learned how to pronounce it.
I used to think that mushrooms came from where the Smurfs lived and sometimes I'd wonder if anyone had ever picked up a smurf and packed it in a punnet of mushrooms by mistake and used to see if I could find one. I'd look very closely because I knew the smurfs were small!
My dad told me when I was younger that if I'd save my ice-cream cone at Braums, I could have more. I always forgot about this but he would be sure to remind me when I was done eating it. Finally one day, I ate every drop of ice-cream that was in my cone but finally I had saved my cone. He laughed at me and told me he was joking! He let me believe this for several years lol how mean XD
I used to believe that the UL symbol on boxes of lightbulbs meant that they were kosher. I obviously had no idea what kosher meant, and the UL must have looked a bit too much like the "circle U" symbol I'd seen on other items in the grocery store.
My grandad had a cockateil and one day we'd gone there for tea. I was about 13 at the time. My mum was talking about sunflower seeds and what they tasted like, so curiosity got the better of me and I took one out of the bird's seed and ate it. Immediately after my parents told me very seriously that I'd turn into a cockateil! I didn't believe them at that moment and shrugged it off.. however, that night when I got home, I was drinking some water from a mug and happened to look at the reflection in the bottom of it. I could see I was forming a beak and my eyes were on the side of my head like a bird. I screamed and dropped the mug and started crying. My alarmed mum asked me what on earth was wrong - I told her and she told me not to be ridiculous and that she was just joking about me turning into a bird. I had to reassure myself by looking in the mirror..
Thankfully, to this day - I'm pretty sure I'm still human.. however, I'm still expecting the day I morph into a bird!
My sister thought a fruit machine (the gaming device) could turn one item of fruit into another.
I used to think that rice grains were little pieces of pasta, rather than naturally forming grains.
When I was little, I believed marshmallows grew on trees. So everytime we'd go to the grocery store, I would beg for a bag of the small ones (my "seeds") and run home and plant them. They never grew :(
I used to believe that spaghetti was called "left-overs" because every time my family said we were having left-overs for dinner it was spaghetti
My great grandma used to make homemade bread. She used to tell us that if you ate the raw dough ( ew but when your a kid you try anything) it would expand till your stomach exploded!
I used to believe that burritos were animals, so when we had burritos for lunch at my school, I'd cut it with a fork and show my meat sauce covered fork to the other boys and go "YAAAAAAAAH!!! DISEMBOWELMENT!!!" And they'd freak out.
One time when I was little, I went to the grocery store with my Mom and she saw an egg plant and she was jokeing around and said "Look baby!! Its an alien" Well ofcourse I belived her. She bought two. Your thinking I was scared of the eggplant. WRONG! When we got home, I asked if I could look at the eggplant. I took it into myy room and I dressed it up in cabage patch doll cloth and put it in my stroler and I strolled it around the house. My Mom always had to take the egg plants when they got old and she would switch them out. lol
I would also not talk to my perants after they ate egg plant. I got very upset!

That everything was made out of food, depending on the color. I believed, for instance, that diapers were made out of milk.
When I was 8 my brother told me that nutella was produced by a married couple. The man called Nut and the woman called Ella. Foolishly enough, I believed everything my brother told me! Soon enough my friends informed me that I was wrong...lol
