As a young child I was told spiders laid their eggs in the bottom of banana peels so I would never eat the last bite. Even to this day I inspect the bottom of the banana carefully before eating.
When I was 3 or 4. I thought, if I eat a kernel, it will grow in my stomach.
my mum used to try and get me to eat brussell sprouts be telling me theye tasted like sweeties. They didnt. They got fed to the dog, hidden behind the boiler and placed under the plate so I could get away from the table. When my mum used to lift my ultra clean plate up there would be a whole host of brussell sprouts hidden under the rim!
mr brother russ told me that some maggots crawling on the ground were macaroni and i should eat it - I didnt!
my dad told me as a kid that turkish delight was camel poo i believed him 4 years n up 2 the age 20
When I was young, my aunt was trying to get me to eat my peas. You know the sweet peas that come in a can, the mushy, gross ones. Anyway, she told me that if I ate my peas they would stack one on top of the other and make me tall. I still can't eat peas to this day, because the very thought of it just grossed me out and ruined them for me forever.
I used to mistake Horseradish for "Dogradish"
My sister told me as a child that ravioli was 'hedgehog' meat.
Still can't eat it today.......
When I was in kindergarten, my neighbor, who was several years older than me, said that bologna was made from puppy tongues, and that was why it's cold and wet. I asked my parents about it when I got home, but I never did like bologna again, even after finding out that it wasn't really made from puppy tongues.
My mother and I were once shopping at an Aisan food store. There are foods such as pig tounge and pig blood. I asked my mom why were there so much pig food and she said that you could eat any part of the pig, because the entire pig was edible. I thought this was disgusting and I also thought that if you ate any part of the pigs besides the regular meat, you'd either turn into a pig, or get extremeley sick. When I saw people buying the pig tounge and bood, I'd run away from them!
my dad always told me that the fat on meat was the best bit, it would take me that long to chew through it, my dad would say "let me give you a hand and pinch the meat"
I used to believe that Pepperoni was made from goat meat.
When I was 4 i always believed that the brocolli would jumpoff the plate and eat me and today im still scared
i used to believe that tapioca was fish eggs or fish eyes. one of my grandfathers had said that it was fish eggs while the other said fish eyes. it didnt matter to me because either way it sounded gross. so ive never in my life tried tapioca because every time i see it, i think fish eyes and fish eggs and i immediately lose my appetite...
As an older sister my younger sister Alice looked up to me. One day she said to a group of three of her friends - "My sister eats caterpillars rolled up in leaves". I was horrified, but didn't want to let her down. So I rolled a big hairy caterpillar up in a leaf, chewed it up and swallowed it. I think she idolized me even more after that.
I used to think that any ingredients you could put together would taste good. So I often experimented in the kitchen when my mother was sleeping. Didn't take my long to figure out I was wrong when I mixed chocolate syrup, cheese, and nutmeg and tried to eat it. Nastiest thing I think I've ever tasted.
When I was at primary school, we would occasionally have steak and kidney pie (which I hated). The thing is I knew that a kidney was a part of your insides, and I didn't realise that other animals had them too. I had this image in my mind of two commandos walking around the school trying to find a child to kill for its kidneys the day before we had steak and kidney pie. I could never work out why nobody I knew ever got taken, though.
I used to think that the yellow in store-bought eggs was really a baby chick that didn't hatch. To this day I can only eat them scrambled.
When very young I was stood looking into the window of a butchers with my mum. I pointed at some red meat (I think it was probably liver) and asked my mum what it was. She said Lamb (I don't think she knew which meat I meant). But I heard it as "man" and was convinced from then on that butchers sold human meat!
I thought a "cold sore" on your mouth was the same thing as "coleslaw" and so avoided eating it for years.
