when i was a kid i didn't eat yellow part of eggs because i used to believe that it would be chicken in my belly!!!!
The first time my little sister saw a different McDonald's than the one in our hometown, she became outraged that they had stolen our McDonald's idea. We had the real McDonald's and this one was a copy by someone mean.
I used to try to catch the man in the fridge turning on the light when i opened the door.Sometimes i was so fast there were footprints in the butter. Thanks dad i still do a quick scan...
My sister used to believe that bell peppers grew 'stuffed' with a rice/meat mixture, since when we saw them they were served baked and stuffed that way. When my Mother grew her own bell peppers, my sister came in with one she had picked and opened, and asked, "Mom, where's the stuffing that's supposed to be inside?"
i used to believe that dumplings grew in the garden
As a youngster I loved Burger King - but there was only one I really attended. So when I was 6, we stopped at a different Burger King, mystified as to how there could be two of them, I told my parents that it wasn't the same and refused to go in it. I think we had to head to the original Burger King (about 30mins drive away) so I would even eat. That burger king has since moved :(
I believed till I was 8 that eggs grew on plants. It didn't help that dad used to hang his cleaned out eggshells on a plant in the garden.
When I was little, I thought that big puffy clouds in the sky were actually mashed potatoes.
My father told me tapioca was frog eggs in pudding. I still can't eat it!
My grandpop had a saying that eating raw radishes would "put hair on your chest" I of course took that literally, and thought for ages that I would grow hair on my chest if I ate a raw radish- now wanted since I'm a girl! up until I was in my 20s and someone explained the expression to me.
I used to think that artichokes were animals because my mother said we were eating artichoke hearts.
I used to believe a pickle was a smaller version of the cucumber.

My Grandma told me when I was little that if I ate too much grating cheese my nose would fall off. I believed her, for probably longer than I should have, because grandma would never lie to me! :)
Used to wonder why a hamburger is called that if it doesn't have any ham...
When I was a kid my Dad used to tell me that in order to get wheat bread that darker color it was made with crushed up bugs along with the wheat....I didnt eat wheat bread for years until I learned how it was really made.
I used to believe that made from scratch meant that the baker would scratch a cutting board with their fingernail and little bits of white powder would appear. This was where the flour came from to make something from scratch. No wonder bread "made from scratch" were revered!
When I was little, my parents told me if i ate my fish sticks, I would become invisible.
When I was younger I used to believe that broccoli was tiny trees that little elves cut down. Because of that it was my favorite food. I wanted the little elves to always have a job. Even now knowing broccoli is just a veggie grown its still my favorite. I am definitely going to tell my kids that they are still tiny trees :)
I used to believe that you put butter on things to cool them down. It never occurred to me that it was for flavor until I was almost a teenager.
