I used to think ketchup was specially made to cool down your food. One day i somehow figured that it was actually to add flavour- i was around 5- and i proudly told everyone thinking i had made a fantastic discovery and no-one knew that before!

I used to be afraid to eat fish. I just wouldnt eat it. I used to love chicken on the other hand. So oneday my parents told me that they were serving ;joke-chicken' for dinner. I loved chicken so much that I tried it, and loved it. I went on believing until my grandpa, at a family dinner, told me it was fish. I dont know how I believed that, but I did.

My wifes father had told her as a child that corned beef hash was a traditional dish for (H)Ash Wednesday. It was only when she told me and I nearly crashed the car laughing she realised.

When I was really little (about 5) I asked my older sister (about 9) to make me a balogna sandwich with mayonaise. She did, and went back to watching TV. I asked her to cut it in half and she said, "You can't cut through mayonaise." '

I, for some reason, accepted this as the truth and never attempted to cut a sandwich made with mayonaise, until I was married and my husband asked me to make him a sandwich that had mayo on it, asked me to cut it and I told him, "You can't cut through mayonaise." He looked at me like I was crazy.

It was then that I realized how stupid I had been. I am now able to cut through mayonaise without fear.

When I was little I used to believe that when my mom put broccolli on my plate that it was a forest and that I was a giant. When I ate the broccolli I thought that i was eating a forest and that I was killing the environment.

My mom used to make a meal that she would put green beans and small canned nude potatoes in. As a joke, she told us that we were eating green beans and ostrich eggs. We believed her for years, asking for green beans and ostrich eggs.

When my boyfriend was little, his dad was eating cottage cheese. Being curious, he asked his dad what he was eating. His dad said "ice cream" and of course my boyfriend wanted some.He was shocked when he found out it wasn't really ice cream! For years, my boyfriend wouldn't eat cottage cheese.

My mom would take me to McDonald's all the time when I was younger. I wouldn't eat the ends of the french fries because they were hard and I thought they were bones.

I used to think there was something wrong with the way my mother cooked fried chicken because the chicken legs sometimes had a dark streak. I didn't know that was a vein (or something natural), but thought it was poop on it. I didn' want to hurt my mother's feelings, so I just told her I wasn't hungry.

When I was 5 my brother convinced me that Shredded Wheat were small furry animals that lived in Scotland. I'm still a bit edgy now when I have them at home.

As a very small child shopping with my mother, I saw my mum put a can of tuna in the shopping trolley with a picture of a dolphin on the side (meaning it was dolphin free tuna). I, however, thought it meant it contained dolphins and went into complete hysterics.

Whenever they told on the news that people in Africa need food aid, I actually thought people would go to stores, buy bread and milk and give the groceries to Red Cross which would ship them to the hungry in Africa.

My brother used to tell me that I needed to eat the skins off my potatoes. If I did, I could grow whiskers. Apparently, this is something our parents told him when they couldn't afford to waste any money on food. As a GIRL, I was not as thrilled by the prospect of growing whiskers and to this day shy away from potato skins.
