Because my brothers tormented me, I thought that blueberries had worms. They would squeeze the blueberries just right and they would ooze and kinda look like worms were coming out. I refused to eat them and hate them to this day!
I used to think that a rare steak meant that it was hard to find. I thought there was common steak, medium rare, and really rare.
I used to believe that the phrase "add sugar to taste" on products meant that if you did not add sugar it would not taste
As a child I believed that hamburgers were called handburgers because you held them in your hands. After my sister corrected me, I then decided that the meat must be ground ham. Made sence to me!
I thought that the chicken in Kentucky Fried Chicken actually had to be imported from Kentucky because they had special types of frying equipment.
Until I was in HIGH SCHOOL I thought that pimentos occured naturally inside of green olives. Embarrassed myself terribly finding out otherwise.
I used to believe (and still do) hot dogs are made out of the rubber from old tennis shoes and band aids (it gives hot dogs that pinky, flesh color).
When I was five, I told my mom my theory that sausage meat came from lions. She just went with it and I think I held that belief for a while.
When I was little, I thought chocolate mousse, was chocolate mouse. I remember the first time I ordered it I told my mom I wanted the head, because I didn't think mouse tail would taste good even when covered in chocolate.
My mom used to cook whole, shelled shrimp (heads and all) in soups and stuff. And I always thought their eyeballs were what made peppercorns.
It took me a long time to figure out that "gorilla cheese sandwiches" were indeed grilled, not prepared by with or for a gorilla.
When I was little I heard my mom say she had lost her serial code and therefore could not register some software on her computer. Wanting to help, I ripped all of our boxes of cereals apart, waiting for a cereal code to fall out.
I used to believe that if I didn't put the eggs in the fridge fast enough after buying them, they would hatch into chicks.
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 ham came from hamsters. What's worse is I was totally fine with eating it!
I used to believe that the spinning concrete trucks carried condiments around. The yellow ones carried mustard, the red ones - ketchup, and so on.
At the age of four I decided that I wanted to be a vegetarian, so my parents told me that all meat came from animals that died of natural causes. I was also told that liver was a vegetable and that it was only called liver because it resembled the organ in question. I believed this until I was about ten...
When my brother and I were little, we believed that lemons were sweet because any time we had something with lemons in it, it was sweet. We believed that until our Dad brought home a lemon and gave us a slice. I took one bite and accused him of injecting soap into it!
I used to believe that all types of meat were chicken, so when I was hungry I would ask my mom, "What kind of chicken are we having tonight?"
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.
