When my sister was 4, she knew that frozen dinners always had a picture of the enclosed meal on the cover of the box. She would then choose her meals accordingly. Being a rotten older brother, I snuck a non-food box into the freezer on a night in which we were to choose our own dinners. I selected enchiladas, then handed baby sis a box from the freezer. Hers had a picture of 2 fluffy, wide eyed KITTENS on the front. She was horrified and refused to eat ANYTHING that night. Later, mom asked me why there was a jigsaw puzzle in the freezer and why sis hadn't eaten dinner.

When we went out to a Chinese or Japanese restaurant, my uncle would always order fillet mignon. Well, I always misheard it as "Flaming Yon". I assumed it was some kind of super spicy Asian dish... It wasn't until recently that I learned it was merely steak.

When I was younger, my dad would tell me the Heath bars were adult candy, and I believed him. On Halloween I would always give them to him. I thought they were poisonous to children. I believed this until I was around when I saw my neighbor (who was like, 7 at the time) one. I tried them, and I loved them.
I am 11 now, and my dad still tries to pull it off on Halloween, but I know now that he just wanted them for himself!E

When I was little my mum told me that food was in packaging to stop little glass men getting in and to stop your mouth from getting cut.

It was only untill I was older and figured it out on my own.

As a kid, I thought the job of the slaves in the Old South was to make butter. They did this by peeling the bark off a tree trunk, looping a rope around the trunk, and pulling the rope back and forth between two people to work the butter off the trunk.

(Although maybe margarine *is* made that way...)

I used to believe that a hamburger was called a "handburger" because you ate it using your hands.

When I would go to Japanese restaurants, my dad would order Wonton soup, except I thought it was called "One-ton" soup. I never understand why someone would eat so much soup.

That a Wiener schnitzel (a German dish which is a bread veal cutlet) was a hotdog, because there is a hotdog place called Wienerschnitzel.

When I was little I demanded sugar on my cereal. My dad told me that someday I'd be eating my cereal without it and I thought that he meant it would one day become illegal to sprinkle table sugar on rice krispies. What he actually meant was that when I got older my tastes might change and I might actually like unsweetened cereal. I lived in fear of the day that I could be arrested for adding sugar to my cereal.

I loved pizza when I was 10 I always wondered why some peperonis are hot some are not. I thought when I wasn't looking aliens put invisible hot sauce on the peperoni.

I use to believe that fruit flavored chap sticks were made of real fruit and were completely edible. Until one day I was really hungry, and took a large bite of a banana flavored chap stick.

I was so upset.

When I was little, I always thought that grilled cheese sandwiches were called GIRLED cheese sandwiches. Thus, my dad was not supposed to eat them because they were, obviously, made just for girls.

My sister never ate eggs when she was little. My parents just thought that she just didn't like them. One day they were talking about a friend having a baby and my sister chimed in and asked "How many eggs did she have to eat to get pregnant?" My sister had heard that babies come from eggs and since she didn't want to have a baby, she wouldn't eat any.

I heard of turtle soup when I was little. I thought tomato soup was turtle soup. I thought it should be green but I reasoned that it was red because turtles had red blood. I loved tomato soup and I thought it was neat that I was eating turtles.

My mother used to make the same dessert every night, which was crushed pineapple and junket (like opaque jelly). My sister and I would ask her every dinnertime "what's for dessert?" and she would say "Wait and see". I thought that pineapple and junket was called 'wait and see' and that it was similar to 'curds and whey" (which sounded like it would have been similar).
