All growing up, whenever we had Tapioca pudding, my mother told everyone who had any that the tapioca were actually fish-eyes...this kept my next-door neighbor from ever eating Tapioca pudding...of course, I thought it was cool!
i used to believe that peas were toes
i used to think that they killed people and took out their liver to make liver!

I used to believe my brother! I used to LOVE lemon meriguine pie, but one day my brother asked me to tell him what it was made out of. I told him lemons and sugar, but he corrected me by saying it was made from vaseline! I still can't eat lemon meriguine pie today!
I used to believe that chicken skin was actually an edible coating of some kind, like plastic. Imagine my horror when I found out that chicken skin actually was the skin from a chicken.
I was always a picky eater so my diet pretty much consisted on the same contents. Well, my mother used to cook me Mrs. Grass soup in which little green vegetables were cut up in. After studying the soup, I came to the conclusion that those bits of whatever it was floating around in there were dead flies. It took only a few stubborn refusals that my mom asked me what my reasoning was to not eat the soup she had taken the time to fix so I finally confessed that I knew that a small collection of deceased insects were laid to rest in my soup. Needless to say, she had quite the chuckle.

My older brother told me that the reason apple butter is brown is because the farmers who make it spit their tobacco juice in it while it is cooking. I wouldn't eat apple butter for years afterward.

One time, my dad said that he ate a wrap, as in the kind of sandwich, but my sister thought he said he ate a rat!
My friend (he's in his mid twenties and is currently writing his thesis for his PhD) told us that tortilla chips contain sand. After checking a pack of Doritos he changed it to "all tortila chips apart from Doritos contain sand."
A few weeks ago he told me this amazing fact again, but it had changed to "all Mexican food contains sand".
My family used to (and still do, if truth be told) call Garibaldi biscuits 'Dead Fly Biscuits' Like a little fool, I thought they really did contain dead flies - tasty though!
