When I was young, I hated peas and was suspicious of all other pea-shaped foods, thinking that they might just be peas in disguise. I squished each and every blueberry I ate because I thought it might just be a pea holding its breath and trying to sneak into my mouth!
My dad told my young daughters that molasses comes from mole asses. I don't know how long they
I used to hate eating turkey at christmas, so my parents told me that they were giving me "Churkey", a mix between turkey and chicken, so that I would eat it. I don't know how I fell for that one so easily!
I used to think that peas were the poop of the catfish in our pond, so I never ate them. Now I know that that's not true and I love peas! :D

My older sister told me that carrot baby food was made by a bunch of old women sitting around chewing carrots and then spitting them into jars.

I used to believe that if you ate something that wasn't what you were supposed to eat or something that isn't already grown, like seeds or nails or glue or something, if would grow in your stomach and you would explode XD
This belief is now something of a family tradition.
My mother, who was never the greatest of chefs, told me (and all my siblings) when i was small that if i didn't eat all my supper, "the children who eat poo" would come & get me.
The children who eat poo are a bunch of naughty children who also wouldent eat thier supper & now live on the streets with nothing to eat but poo! They were like a gang of poo eating street punks.
as my mother was a self employed courier sometimes when i was in the car with her she would point to dumpsters & say thats where the children who eat poo live.
needless to say, washing the dishes in our house was never a big chore...we practically licked them clean.
When I was about six, my dad told me hot dogs were cow lips. I believed him. For years. Now I know better....
there are plenty of other cow parts in there, too.
when i was like kindergarten or first grade i belived that ketchup was made by blood. because that is what my older sister told me. so i believed that. i thought whenever we got a new bottle of ketchup at home that my parents killed someone. so i would run away to my room and cry until dinner. i still don't eat ketchup to this day. even though i know it comes from tomatoes.
also i thought honey came from girl's pee. because one time my parents went shopping and then we came home and my mom went to the bathroom the came out and put the honey bottle-jar thing away so i asked her what she did and she sayed she peed so i dont eat honey either.
last, lol, i thought apple juice came from boy's pee. because we went camping i did not know my parents brought apple juice along. there was no bathrooms there so my dod took a walk so he could pee and when he went i saw him leave but when he came back i was in the tent. i got out of the tent and saw him pouring APPLE JUICE!!! i was like ewwwwwwww. then eventually i learned that apple juice came from apples and sugar and more stuff but i was totally grossed out bye those three things!!!
When I was a kid my grandparents told me that Brazilian nuts were N*gger Toes. I actually believed them to be black peoples toes and would not eat them. I still don't eat them when I get mixed nuts. I throw them away.
as a child my dad always told me that mcdonalds burgers were made of saw dust and there chicken nuggets were made of chicken butts. its didnt stop me from eating at mc donalds though.
when i was about 5 years old, we had some goldfish... my dad thought it would be funny if he pretended to eat 1, so he quickly threw a carrot into the fish tank, and picked it back out and ate it (i thought it was a fish) and up to this day, whenever i have carrots, and i put them in my mouth, he shouts "FISH" and it makes me feel realy sick!!!
when i was little in about 2nd or 3rd grade,
my friend told me that jelly was little purple slugs and then i wouldn't eat jelly for 3 weeks until i asked my other friend (she was older by about a year) if it was true ,she said it was the dumbest thing she ever heard!
my mom use to tell me chocolate icecream was made with mud and it was gross so i wouldn't want to eat it. in reality she just didn't feel like cleaning chocolate stains out of clothes. i never tried chocolate ice cream for years and told everyone i thought it was nasty and tasted like mud.
I must have been about 6 the first time i heard someone use the phrase "human being", but of course, to me it sounded like "human bean". I panicked because i liked beans and wondered which ones came from humans. I asked my cousin who was about 14, and he told of that kidney beans came out of human kidneys. I don't think i ate chili for about 5 years.
I use to think ketchup was kat blood because my Dad called it cat soup.Sometimes he would call it cat blood but usually cat soup.
