I used to cry whenever my family would eat eggs. I was convinced that we were eating baby chickens that gave up their lives so we could have food. Once I kept a dozen eggs hidden underneath my bed for a week, convinced that they'd hatch and grow into chickens.
When I was about five my mother threw this huge Christmas party. She kept talking about what kind of hor d'ouvres to serve. I pronounced them like 'hors, divorce" and I was convinced my mother wanted to feed horse parts to all of our guests.
i used to believe that eggs were unhatched dinosaurs, and that if you eat them they could grow inside you.
I used to believe that hummus - the food, it's sort of corn yoghurt - was actually rotting vegetation.
I think I was thinking of "humus".
When I was little I went to this toy store and bought some mexican jumping beans. Well when you open those up they have little larvas in them, which look like caterpillars. So I asked my dad were there beans in ALL caterpillars? And he said yes. So until this day I do not eat beans of any kind.
My brother used to tell me that refried beans came from letting cows eat the beans and then scraping it out of the cows stomach and canning it. They had to kill the cows to get the beans out. Weird, I know.
when i was a little girl my dad told me corn in a can was old people's teeth that had fallen out. i still can't eat corn.
That hot dogs were made from rat tails.
my stepbrother once told me that ketchup was made out of blood, and I didn't touch it until I was about 7 (when I could read good & proper)
When I was about 5 years old my older brother told me tapioca pudding was made out of fish eyes and that what the bubbles on top were. I never ate tapioca pudding again. I'm now 23 and even though I know it's not made of fish eyes it still grosses me out.
I used to believe that the icing on packaged oatmeal cookies was old people's spit. I don't know where I got that one from!
at some point when I was a kid I looked at a box of cereal and read that it had 454 "germs" instead of grams. I wouldn't eat cereal for a while after that, because I thought I'd get sick.
When my brother was little he used to believe that all the mushrooms in the world were evil and waging some sort of a personal war against him.
One day my brother walked to a large, flat stone in the middle of our lawn. Then he noticed that the stone was actually surrounded by tiny fungi, panicked and started to cry. After some time my mom heard him and she had to carry him off the stone because he couldn't walk over the mushrooms again.
One another time he had a very high fever. He was delirious and thought that his whole blanket was covered with fungi.
My brother still doesn't want to have anything to do with mushrooms.
i used to believe that hamburgers were made with BOOGERS, the sort in your nose and always refused to eat them.
When I was five, the woman who cut my hair told me that if I wanted to make my hair grow faster, all I had to do was eat liver and spinach.
I was in college by the time I was able to shake my mother's notion that liver was not actually my favorite food, or anywhere close to it, and that I'd only choked it down because I thought I'd have Rapunzel hair.
Spinach, though, I wound up liking.
For awhile, I was allowed to eat dinner in front of the TV, but one time my mother served me some brown stuff on a plate & I thought it was poo. I couldn't bring myself to eat it.
My parents said that I got so interested in the TV that I forgot to eat, & wouldn't let me do that anymore. When I grew up, I told my mum about it, & she didn't believe me, because of course I knew she wouldn't serve me poo. Well, I didn't know that at all.
i used to believe that black wood ear
came from the skin of the bats
i used to believe that peas were toes
When I was little I use to think kiwi fruit had to be shaved befor you eat it. Or you would grow hair all over you.
When I was little I use to think hot dogs were pig guts.
