We lived across the street from a restaurant and one day their sign said the special was "Half Baked Chicken" Yewww - who wants half baked half raw chicken!!!
When I was little my parents told me that the holes in Swiss cheese came from mice. After the mice were done eating their share of the cheese, it was our turn to eat it. I didn't eat Swiss cheese for years.
When my cousin and I were about 5 or 6, we would always see her 13 year old sister putting on chapstick, then smack and lick her lips. We were convinced she was eating it and must've really liked it, because she'd reapply it a lot. So we found some old chapstick and licked it. We were convinced she had terrible taste!
I used to believe in 'SPAM' animals until I was 13 years old and read the back of a can. Thanks to my father's wild imagination and description of a beast that had parts from all types of animals, I never ate any SPAM!!
One time when I was a kid I asked what a cannibal was and my mom said its someone who eats other people. For some reason it didn't occor to me that they could cut up and cook someone so I imagined they just opened their mouth really wide and swallowed the other person whole!
My big sister insisted that cinnamon (sugar) and pepper were the same thing. I tried some pepper and spit it out. Then she convinced me that it tasted differently on different parts of the tongue. Thoughout my childhood I always moved pepper around in my mouth trying to get it to taste like cinnamon.
My father used to call soya sauce "monkey blood". I didn't even consider tasting it for years!
I thought a "cold sore" on your mouth was the same thing as "coleslaw" and so avoided eating it for years.
When I was little I use to think kiwi fruit had to be shaved befor you eat it. Or you would grow hair all over you.
I never used to like boiled eggs so my Mum told me if i don't eat it quickly the chicken will hatch and eat me. I only recently found out that chickens are vegetarians!
My oldest sister used to pull the wings and legs off of flies and tell me they were raisins, then give me raisins and tell me that they were flies with all the parts pulled off. I still won't eat raisins, can't trust them.
Until very recently I beleived that "bread and water" was actually bread, with water mixed together into a icky mush.
On the brief occasion I was bought a packet of Opal Fruits I'd be really sad if it contained lots of green ones as I thought they were lettuce flavour....
i used to think raisins were inside out flies. i still can't eat them to this day. :)
i used to love eating the hard toffees in quality street until my sisters told me that they were made of old ladies wee, i still carn't bring myself to eat them this day.
When I was young I hated Pea soup so my dad told me it wasn't pea soup, it was "green vegetable soup"....I LOVED green vegetable soup.
I believed that linguini was made of tape worms and was scared to eat pasta for a long time!
For thanksgiving my grandmother would always make this red cabbage steu and my aunt told me that it was frog guts. I still wont eat it to this day.
My uncle once told me when I was little that green peas were actually alien boogers. I still ate them though. I love veggies!
When I was little, I believed that mushrooms were actually the ears of little tiny miniature elephants that were about two or three inches tall. Yes, this sounds silly, but bear in mind that at the TIME, I'd only ever seen cooked, sliced mushrooms, and they looked elephant-ish to me, so I put two and two together, lol.
