My dad used to tell us that Twinkies made you have to use the bathroom - so we always ate them in great moderation.
My friend next door told me that bologna was made from dog's tongues!
I could never eat another bologna sandwich and my mom could not understand why.
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.
My sister believed the pork in pork and beans was marshmallow...and would always "fight" us for it.
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!
I used to believe the yolk part of the egg was the blood of the baby chicken. I did not eat eggs for the longest time.
once when I was eating a hotdog, my sister told me the reason ketchup was sometimes spelled katsup, that it was made from cats blood!
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!
I usesd to believe that eating orange peel would give you worms. so used to eat it anyway out of spite.
I made my little sister and my little cousins believe that when they took the skin off oranges the orange pulp was bugs.
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.

I used to tell my sister that beets were giant beetle hearts, thats why it was red. Then I would eat it and front of her. To this day, she can't eat beets.
i used to believe, and was told, that there was fish eyes/eges in tapioca pudding. I have never aten it since.
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.
I always thought that duck sauce (from chinese restaurants) was duck poop.
i used to believe that was a meat called 'coney'. My nan told me i was eating coney stew....but infact it was rabbit.
My husband believed (up until I set him straight) that Creamsicles were disgusting, because there was sour cream in the middle.
