As children, myself AND my two brothers believed that mincemeat pie was made out of mice. The main character in the cartoon Klondike Cat would get mad at his nemesis Savior Faire and shout "I'll make mince meat outta that mouse!" We just couldn't figure out why our parents got all excited about eating mouse pie.

When we both were young, I told my little sister that dirt tasted like chocolate Quik, the stuff you make chocolate milk with. She ate a whole handful before realizing her mistake.

When I was oh, between 8 and 10, I went to my grandmother's house with my dad for dinner. Mountain Oysters were on the menu. I gobbled them up thinking how neat it was that these oysters had come from high up in the mountains. Til after dinner when I found out that they were not oysters at all... you can imagine my surprise.

I thought I heard my third grade teacher mention that Jello was made with ground-up cow udders. I believed this for a while, too.

When i was young, we would visit my grandparents in west texas. My gr-pa would buy tamales off the back of a truck from a mexican woman. He would tell me they were "cat tamales" and if i looked in the back of her truck i would see the cat heads rolling around. He would make a "meow" sound when someone bit into one of the tamales. (of course later, my grandfather and grandmother told me that was a joke and in fact the lady made some of the best tamales in town) lol

When I was about five, my sister had a can of Mountain Dew. I tried to sneak a drink, and when she caught me, she told me that it had pieces of lasagna in it. As a kid, I hated lasagna and from that day on, I never drank Mountain Dew again. I was well into my young teen years before realizing Mountain Dew was not actually made from lasagna (and still don't drink it to this day, thirty years later)!

In elementary school, a teacher once told us that cool whip was made from crushed up animal bones. This sparked a debate at our table and no one could decide if it was true or not. Most of us scraped it off of our jell-o that day...

My oldest sister used to pull the wings and legs off of flies and tell me they were raisins, then give me raisins and tell me that they were flies with all the parts pulled off. I still won't eat raisins, can't trust them.

When I was a wee lass my Auntie would often call Brazil Nuts - nigger toes. Now, I must explain...she was born in the late 1800's and my father was born in 1913 so maybe that explains the term, I really don't know. They were certainly NOT prejudiced people and were respectful of everyone. When I was very young, I had this terrible feeling that people with black skin had their toes removed and it upset me to no end. I suppose I was about 5/6 when it was explained to me where the expression came from and why. I can't imagine anyone using this expression today I am in my 52nd year, have never used the term and just can't imagine using it.
