I believed (until I was about 23, embarrassingly enough) that tapioca pudding was made of fish eggs. As usual, my father is to blame for this. I can't wait to lie to my own kids.

i used to believe that tapioca was fish eggs or fish eyes. one of my grandfathers had said that it was fish eggs while the other said fish eyes. it didnt matter to me because either way it sounded gross. so ive never in my life tried tapioca because every time i see it, i think fish eyes and fish eggs and i immediately lose my appetite...

My little sister believed onion rings were alive and wouldn't eat them until my mam had killed them by stabbing them with a fork, she also wouldn't eat any meat unless it was chicken so until she was about 11 bacon,sausages and burgers were all chicken, i don't think she liked chickens!!

When I was 8 or 9 and eating lunch in the school cafeteria one day, a classmate told me that mayonnaise was made out of snot. I believed him and didn't eat mayonnaise for years.

I used to believe that tapioca pudding was made out of fish eggs and human toenails because my friends told me so in 3rd grade. To this day I can't eat it because that's the visual I get.

My grandfather would drive past straw fields and tell me the bales of hay all rolled up was shreded wheat, what i ate for breakfast. It grossed me out and took awhile for me to eat shreded wheat again.

When I was oh, between 8 and 10, I went to my grandmother's house with my dad for dinner. Mountain Oysters were on the menu. I gobbled them up thinking how neat it was that these oysters had come from high up in the mountains. Til after dinner when I found out that they were not oysters at all... you can imagine my surprise.

When my little sister was about 4 i told her that tinned spaghetti was actually dead worms stuck in a tin.

The Otherday at 19 yrs old i invited her over and only had spaghetti on toast on offer and she said she couldnt eat it because it makes her feel violently sick ever since i told her it was dead worms and she believed me lol

I thought when I ate something like hamburger or sandwich they will be stacked up neatly from my butt up to my nose until I cant eat any more because there is no space for more food to fit in my throat. If the pieces that are too rotten and stinky to be stored in my body, they goes out of my butt- poop.

Once, when my mother was cooking a chicken gizzard, I saw it sizzling in the middle of the pan, and asked what it was. I heard my mother say, "it's a half-cooked lizard." I'm certain now that she said gizzard, but when I heard lizard, I swear it looked just like a small lizard, frozen in place, cooked before it could escape.

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.

This is really crazy, but my sister told me that pie was made from kittens. I refused to eat it until I was 24. I think it was so she could eat all of my pie on Thanksgiving

When I moved up to middle school from juniors, I was reliably informed by the older kids that the Cornish pasties served in the dinner hall were filled with dog food. I never tried one until I was about 20.

My neighbor told me that the insides of acorns tasted like chocolate. They don't. They're really bitter.

My brother, Myles Kidd, was really gullible as a kid. I told him that Tapioca was spawn of the Canadian bullfrog, and that the slightly pink processed cheese we ate was that colour because it had cows blood in it. As we were fed these foods regularly, mealtimes usually ended in tears. (He's still really gullible!)
