When I was younger, I thought the dead flies on our windowsill were raisins and ate them.

When I was a toddler my parents bought chicken noodle soup in packets. These contained dry noodles and a crumbly brownish soup base. I thought the brownish stuff was chicken poop.

I was not disgusted by this idea. Meat was dead animals and milk came out of cows, so maybe we used other things that came out of animals too.

I remember being really turned off of tinned Potted Meat (we used it as a sandwhich spread when I was a kid) after hearing my mom jokingly refer to it as "Potty" (as in toilet) Meat. Given what Potted Meat actually is, I should have been turned off to begin with.

I was told not to eat the blackened parts of french-fries at fast-food places because they were flies that fell into the oil. I still don't eat them (lol)!

One time me and my cousin were eating tapioca pudding and our great aunt told us that there was frog and fish eyeballs in it! We believed her and ever since then we havent eaten it.

When I was a lad I used to think about food, particularly meat. I knew chicken was chicken, but where did liver come from? So, for a while, I used to imagine what liver looked like. Did it have fur or scales or feathers? How many legs? Could it fly? I know better now... no imaginary liver creature...

When I was young (maybe 6 or 7) my uncle told me that the ingredient in hotdogs called erythorbate was actually ground up earthworms. So for years I would not eat hotdogs and was very disgusted when I saw anyone else eating them! I finally learned the truth...but it took a while to overcome the earthworm thing.

To this day I cannot eat tomato sauce (ketchup) because my older brother had me convinced it was blood when we were little.

For some strange reason, I used to believe that whale meat actually was human meat. Once, when I was about six years old, I was invited to dinner at a friend and they had whale for dinner. When her parents asked me if I enjoyed my food I said: "No! I don't eat human flesh!"

I remember when my older sister was eating a store-bought sandwich. I asked her what kind it was. Trying to gross me out, she said it was a roach sandwich. "See those little thingies there? Those are the wings", she said. I believed her for a few weeks. Then I realized that it wasn't a roach sandwich after all, so I started to buy those sandwiches and pretended they had roaches in them. I said, "Look, Sis, I'm eating a roach sandwich".

My little sister was constantly winding me up when we were younger, so to get my own back I told her that soap smelled so good because it was actually ice-cream.

Man, she pulled the foulest face after biting into that! The taste stayed with her for ages as well...

My uncle used to tell me that duck sauce was made from duck lips. When I protested that ducks didn't have lips, he told me it was because they were all cut off to make the sauce.

I used to belive that if you ate anything that had mould growing on it, you would grow mould on your skin.

As a child I knew that tapioca was made from frog's eggs, in spite of my mother's insistence that I was wrong.
