My mother used to tell us kids that the potassium in a banana was concentrated at the bottom. If we didn't eat the blackish part at the bottom then we were wasting all the nutrients.

I used to believe that if you ate a lot and kept eating that the food would stack up out of your stomach, through your esophagus and then your throat.

When I was little I thought grilled cheese sandwiches were called girled cheese sandwiches and told my little brother that he couldn't eat them. He could have boy'd cheese sandwiches.

Before I could read, I used to believe Pringles were called 'Man Chips' because of the cartoon male face that was on the logo.

When I was 5 I thought 'in a nutshell' meant that you are actually going in a nutshell. Like pistachios and such. Pretty silly.

When I was a kid, I thought that those wooden 'honey ladles' were actually complex devices made out of honey and honeycomb themselves, instead of just being unique wooden utensils.

My brother used to believe that his stomach was divided into alphabetised compartments. This was very convenient when he didn't want to finish his dinner but still had space in the 'i' compartment for ice-cream!

When I was 6 I used to think that Cream of Mushroom Soup was actually called "Queen of Mushrooms" Soup. When we were grocery shopping one day I warned my parents not to buy it because if they made too much of the soup the Queen of Mushrooms to lose her mushroom forest. My mom took a can off the shelf and told me to read the label. I felt so silly!

I used to believe that when restaurants said "free delivery," it meant that if you had the food delivered, it would be completely free.

When I was about 5, I asked my mother is Aunt Jemima (Pancake Lady) and Uncle Ben (Rice Guy) were married. I thought it was a good guess seeing as how they were aunt & uncle and both involved in the food business

This is something that I remember from many years ago. My mom probably remembers it too, but, luckily, she doesn't mention it often. This might be a little long.
When I was three or four years old, my mom told me that we were going to go to a farm. The only farm (well, farm-type thing) I had ever been to was a place where they sold fresh produce, had a playground for kids, and, my favorite part, they sold ice cream. Naturally, I was very excited and I thought there would be ice cream at the farm. When we got there, it was sort of like a petting zoo, and we each got some animal food to give to the farm animals. I don't remember much about the animal food, but it looked a little bit like birdseed. Using kid logic, I concluded that the animal food was weird-looking ice cream, and tried to shove a handful of it into my mouth.
My parents had a good laugh about that one.

I used to believe that if I didn't eat my dinner the "dinner police" would come for me. My dad used to go outside and pound on the front door until I ate my dinner.

My dad told me that fig newtons were made from dead flies, explaining that the crunchy bits were the legs. He called them 'fly leg cookies,' so that's what i thought they were called too. (That didn't stop me from eating them as i assumed flies were thus a perfectly acceptable ingredient.) My kindergarten teacher was not impressed when i enlightened my classmates at snack time.

When I was little, I used to think "grilled cheese" was "girl cheese" so only girls could eat it. I was very confused when I saw my dad eating one.

I used to believe that the spinning concrete trucks carried condiments around. The yellow ones carried mustard, the red ones - ketchup, and so on.
