I used to believe that ham came from hamsters.
When I learned that raisins were dried up grapes, I thought that I could reverse the process, so I put a raisin in a cup of water and waited for it to grow back into a grape.
When I was young I believed, for some strange reason, that only apples my mom ate turned brown. I thought she had something in her mouth that turned them brown. One year we left out some fruit for Santa and in the morning the half-eaten apple was, of course, brown. I was convinced my mom was playing Santa. She somehow convinced me that she had only eaten the apple after Santa didn't want it.:O)
When I was younger, my father told me that spaghetti grew on trees, and that the macaroni grew around the spaghetti like some kind of wrapping. I also thought that all the tall people ate spaghetti when they were kids and that the small people ate macaroni. So I grew up eating spaghetti all the time...
When i was a wee kid, i hated sugar (still hate it) and when i complained to my mom that the milk was too sweet, she always told me to mix the milk counterclockwise, making it less sweet...
I used to believe that you HAD to eat ice cream after a meal. My dad used to say that as it melted it filled the cracks between the food already in your tummy - so that you wouldn't creak as you walked!
I used to believe that broccoli was small trees and potatoes were just soft rocks.
That donuts where healthy!!!
I used to think Rolf Harris owned KFC!
I used to belive that green apples had metel in the core...
I used to believe God had such a hard job putting the core of fruits inside and then sewing them so perfectly you wouldn't know.
My family is Italian and we've always had Italian food in the house. When I was little in the early 70's, some types of food were hard to come by in England or very expensive, at least. Parmesan cheese was one of these expensive items, so, kindly, my parents used to tell my sister and I that if you ate too much Parmesan it gave you worms. I believed it for years and years and years. Ridiculous eh!!!
My mom was giving us chocolate dinner rolls at supper one night. I thought because they were called rolls, they were supposed to roll on your plate. When my mom placed it in front of me, I stared at it, confused. It was just sitting still on my plate. I asked, "Why isn't it going to roll, mom?" Everyone laughed.
when i was little i always thought that fillet mignon was flamin' yon. i thought this until i was about 14 when i saw it spelled out. i felt so stupid.
i use to believe that guacamole was ogre boogers and it didnt help that my mean older sister said it was true. to this day i cant eat avocados even though i know there is no connection to ogres. definltity traumatized for life.
Growing up in the southeastern U.S., my first experience with "French fries" and "hush puppies" was at a "fish camp", the kind of rustic seafood reataurant known by that name in that region. Since it was a seafood restaurant, I thought that those things must be two items of seafood. So I spent much time wondering what the sea cretters "French fries" and "hush puppies" looked like when they were alive. Eventually I learned that not everything that is conventionally part of a "seafood dinner" in those parts is really seafood. I was somewhat disillusioned to learn that French fries are actually fried strips of potato and hush puppies are fried balls of cornmeal. My romantic notions of seafood could perhaps have been sustained a bit longer if someone had told me that those two items were actually parts of the same kind of sea monster -- the French fries coming from around the monster's eyes and the hush puppies being pieces of its ears.
When i was younger, my parents used to tell me that if i ate fish eggs, i would be really bad in maths. I decided to swear off fish eggs...I often wondered why my parents would keep eating it though..
when i was in my late teens, i finally realised that my parents told me this, so that they would'nt have to share it with me.
Til today, i m not really a fan of fish egg..and i kinda believe tat me being good in maths is attributed to not eating fish eggs!!
I used to believe that peanut butter was the same as butter, and that flour was flour and peanut flour was like wheat flour.
I used to think popcorn grew on trees until i was 13.
Mum always boiled the suet pudding in muslin tied with cord. This resulted in the pudding looking as though it had a butt. At meal time, when asked if I wanted pudding, I said yes, but donít give me the bum part.
