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.

This one time when i was young at breakfast, I had grabbed the last banana and my older sister wanted it; so she told me that banana's were made of spider legs that molded over after being dead for a while, and that when you cut the banana you could still see the spiders legs. Took me out of eating banana's for almost five years

I used to believe stuffing came directly from the cooked bird, and was really chicken and turkey guts. I was never allowed in the kitchen before the stuffing of the bird, which is what led to this belief. I wouldn't eat it at Thankgsgiving and made everyone sick when I told them what I thought of it

When I was little my parents used to tell me that pretzels were made from wood. So thats probably why I'm not a fan of them today.

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.

This one is actually about my father. As a boy, he thought that it was tradition to order the weirdest food whenever you went to a restaurant (there weren't many restaurants around where he lived back then and most of the few ones were fancy).

One time, he ordered lambs' brains and ox tongue, which he disliked. Another time, in a different restaurant, he ordered moose that still had the bullets in it (!), and in a third restaurant, he ordered venison, but when it was served, he was very disappointed and said, "But where are the antlers?!".

A little girl down the road told me that kale (a green leafy vegetable, kind of like spinach) was really cow butt. I wouldn't eat it forever.

When I was about 5 I asked my Mum where sausages came from and she told me, from pigs. I then figured if eggs came from chickens, then sausages must come out of pigs bottoms. Yum yum.

My older brother used to tell me that the people who make fortune cookies spit in them just to scare me into giving my cookie to him and grossing me out when he ate it......and it worked

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.
