When I was five, I used to believe the yolk in a hard-boiled egg was a spider's stomach. Not to mention the fact that we read THE OLD LADY THAT SWALLOWED A FLY in preschool at the public library, where we took frequent field trips to. The fact that it moved around inside her freaked me out even more. I wouldn't eat the yolk in a hard boiled egg for a LONG time.
i used to believe that the chunks in chunky peanut butter were bugs.
I used to believe that if you ate something that wasn't what you were supposed to eat or something that isn't already grown, like seeds or nails or glue or something, if would grow in your stomach and you would explode XD
my Grandpa told us that pine cones tassted like ice cream cones. I didn't beleive him, but my cousin took a big bite of one! And promptly spit it back out!
I used to believe that drifters contained raisins, I believed this for many years besause my dad used to buy large packs of the funsize variety and to stop me from eating them he lied about the content......I only found out quite recently.....gutted.
As a young child I was told spiders laid their eggs in the bottom of banana peels so I would never eat the last bite. Even to this day I inspect the bottom of the banana carefully before eating.
one day i went with my father to a juice shop and i saw the sugar cane machine so i asked my father "how does the man put the sugarcane from one side and it comes out as juice from the other side" so he told me that a man was sitting inside and he ate the sugarcanes and then he peed and the pee is the juice
Someone told my that rice was really spider eggs. I still don't look at it the same.
I used to believe that cricket ice cream used to be made out of real crickets!!!
i used to believe that was a meat called 'coney'. My nan told me i was eating coney stew....but infact it was rabbit.
When I was little, my older sister used to tell me Almond Roca was 'treats' from a kitty litter box. To this day I still cannot bring myself to eat them (I'm 34 now).
I use to think that the sauce on pizza was blood, and the cheese was skin. So when we went to a pizza plac, my dad would as me what I thaught about the sauce, and I would always say "The blood is a little to sweet." Hahaha, yeah I was so stupid. And then you wonder why would I eat blood, or skin?
Back in elementary school, i convinced my friend that the pizza sauce was actually cat blood. she believed me until we met back up in highschool!
My uncle told me when i was little that chinese duck sauce was made from duck brains. God help me, i didn't try duck saunce until i was 17.
i used to believe ketchup was blood and refused to eat it with anything
my mom use to tell me chocolate icecream was made with mud and it was gross so i wouldn't want to eat it. in reality she just didn't feel like cleaning chocolate stains out of clothes. i never tried chocolate ice cream for years and told everyone i thought it was nasty and tasted like mud.
A baby-sitter once told me that peanutbutter really was baby-shit. I never ate peanutbutter again.
When we were kids, my mother, in order to make us 3 kids behave, told us that if we were bad in public we would be sent to the "cookie house". My belief was that there was this strange little house that bad kids went to live if they misbehaved. This was a horrible little place where kids were given nothing but rock hard black cookies to eat. I even went as far as to believe that the "cookie house" was a small shed that stood in a park in my hometown (the shed was made into a "Santa House" at Christmas - so I thought that all the bad kids were moved only at Christmas time). Strange how this story scared us enough to make us all behave while out with mom!
My grandfather used to work outside in his garden and I remember once when I was about four he told me that he ate worms. I didn't believe him, so he dug up an earthworm and held his head sideways. He tilted his head back and opened his mouth and from my perspective he appeared to be lowering the worm into his mouth, and then chewing it up and swallowing it! I remember screaming and running away. It really upset me at the time!
My dad and grandpa used to tell me the little bits of gelatin in tapioca pudding were fish eggs. I believed this for a long time and I still can't eat tapioca pudding even though I now know otherwise.
