My son is 24 and will still not eat raisins. Why? When he was little he thought they were mushed up dead flies!

My dad would always tell my brother and I that tapioca had glue balls in it, resulting in the two of us asking for pudding with glue balls when we would go to the babysitters or anywhere else.

My sister told me when I was younger that my mother would collect the frogs we would catch at night and pop out their eyeballs and when she had enough she would make Brunswick Stew. This was the answer to my question when I asked what the little grey and white balls were. In reality they were okra seeds. To this day I cannot eat okra or Brunswick Stew.

When my brothers were little, they really believe that canned spinach made you stronger because of Popeye. They begged my mom for days to buy them a can of spinach so she finally did. It took them all of 2 seconds to try it and say yuck! They haven't eaten spinach since.

As an example of my excellent memory, I once confronted my mother about this thing I heard say when I was little. [Possibly why I hate eating meat] I distinctly remember her talking to one of her friends [Whose children she baby-sat], and saying something like "I don't eat the eyes, I give them to the kids." Apparently some people in reality eat animal eyes, I don't know if we ever did.

One evening, I asked my mom what she was cooking, and she replied, "Beef heart". Thinking she had said "Bee fart", I proclaimed, "I'm not eating stinker meat!"

When i was little I didn't like to eat meat (still don't), so my mother told me that Oxtail soup was made with carrots, and I believed her. Years later, I confronted her about it, and she said that duiring that war they'd remove the meat from the soup and grate in carrots to give the texture. I pointed out that the war ended a long time ago, and she just said "I'm old and I get confused", never once admiting that it was a lie.

I was once eating a peach and had bitten down to the stone - when i looked down again there was a huge bug and a crack in the stone. I was convinced it had been living inside and wouldn't eat another peach until well into my adulthood.
