When we were small, my Dad, who loved to use pepper on his food, would tell us that it grew hair on your chest. He had plenty, so there was good reason to believe him. Sometimes to torment us, he would shake a little on our food. We would cry, try to scrape it off and not eat it. To this day, I rarely use pepper on any food...nor does my sister!!!

When I was 6, my older sister told my younger brother that the rabbit droppings that we found in our back yard were Cocoa-Puffs. He learned the truth the hard way.

I used to believe my brother! I used to LOVE lemon meriguine pie, but one day my brother asked me to tell him what it was made out of. I told him lemons and sugar, but he corrected me by saying it was made from vaseline! I still can't eat lemon meriguine pie today!

When I was about 8, an older friend and her brother convinced me that mayonnaise was made from the stuff inside pimples. Although I later learned this wasn't true (duh), because of the image I still couldn't eat mayonnaise for about 25 years.

When I was about 6 we had lychees/litchis, out of a tin because they were a bit of a novelty then. My father jokingly told me they were sheep's eyes, that the hole (where the pit was taken out) was where the coloured part of the eye had been scooped away. Although he dropped the story immediately, I just couldn't eat them, and to this day I can only eat fresh ones I've shelled myself, otherwise the image of an eye is too strong. And I am SO relieved to find that other people keep their induced phobias into adulthood, it makes me feel much less pathetic!

When I was younger my older brother convinced me that cornflakes were made of elephants, which caused me to avoid them like the plague for all of three days, during which time I confined myself to weetabix.

When I was little my father told me that tapioca pudding had fish eyes in it. I believed him since the jelly substance resembled that of fish eyes. Today, I still can't eat tapioca pudding.

When my little sister was about 4 i told her that tinned spaghetti was actually dead worms stuck in a tin.

The Otherday at 19 yrs old i invited her over and only had spaghetti on toast on offer and she said she couldnt eat it because it makes her feel violently sick ever since i told her it was dead worms and she believed me lol

My sister was such a mean person when we were younger, she'd make up lies to try and scare me. The two that stick with me today is that the chocolate chips in Cookie Crunch are actually maggots, and tapioca pudding is fish eggs. I can't even look at either of them to this day.
