We dont have head cheese (if that is how you write it?) in Britain, but I knew it was something Americans ate by watching TV. I imagined it as this skinned, hollowed out human skull with a big lump inside it that was a mix of human brain, human flesh, and some cheese. I could never understand why anyone would want to eat this, and thought Americans had really weird taste in food.
When I was little my brother convinced me that guacamole was made from lizards called guacs....i believed this until i was about 9 or 10...
As a child my family and I were eating tapioca pudding. My dad told me we were eating fish eggs just to tease me. Since then I have not been able to eat tapioca pudding.
When I was in kindergarten I would eat nothing but hotdogs for lunch at school. As many of us know, they aren't exactly the healthiest meal, so my dad tried to convince me not to eat them by telling me they were made of worms. After that I despised the taste of hotdogs, and although I now know that they aren't actually made of worms, I still haven't aten a hotdog since kindergarten.
I used to believe that peanut butter was baby poo
My dad told me when I was 5 that tapioca pudding had fish eggs in it and I have never eaten it since and I am now 30.
I used to believe chicken hot dogs were made of their intestines (yup) till I was as old as 18. It started as a joke, but eventually a lot of people around me started to believe so because my talks aren't usually rubbished! LOL!
One night at dinner we had tapioca pudding for dessert. I kept begging for more pudding and my parents kept telling me no, you've had enough. Finally my dad said, "Are you sure you want more? Because the little balls in tapioca pudding are made of fish eyes." I believed that for YEARS and to this day will not eat tapioca pudding.
eating cheese before bed gives you nightmares
Not me, but my girlfriend.
When she was younger, her aunty told her that a bug lives in the end of a banana. She still chops off each end of a banana to this day...
When we were younger My cousin and I went to the next town where a fair was going on. They had this really cool trailer where a man was sitting in there biting off the heads of snakes and bats. He had snake and bat bodies laying all over on the floor. My cousin and I went on to other things and then came back later to see the man again. All the body parts were cleaned up. When it was time to go home. Mom was in the house making supper, said we were having a special treat. We were called in for supper and lo and behold there on the plate were these little slices of perfectly round green fried snakes. We took off running saying we were not hungry. When we got back home Dad asked why we left in a hurry and we told him about the snakes and bats and then the supper Mom had made, and we WERE NOT EATING SNAKE. Dad laughed and told us it was zucchini. Well it looked pretty convincing to us! UGH!
For awhile, I was allowed to eat dinner in front of the TV, but one time my mother served me some brown stuff on a plate & I thought it was poo. I couldn't bring myself to eat it.
My parents said that I got so interested in the TV that I forgot to eat, & wouldn't let me do that anymore. When I grew up, I told my mum about it, & she didn't believe me, because of course I knew she wouldn't serve me poo. Well, I didn't know that at all.
I thought that raisins were little dead bugs without legs
When I was little my older brother told me that mayonnaise was pus from chicken tumors!
I wouldn't ever eat bananas that were bruised. I believed that while the bananas were growing in the jungle, monkeys would open them up, take a bite, and then put them back on the tree. I called these bruises monkey spots, and i still refuse to eat a bruised banana.
My sister bought a section of natural sugar cane at a specialty grocery store. I expected to take a bite out of it and it would be crunchy and taste like sugar cubes...it was gross.
When I was younger, I thought the dead flies on our windowsill were raisins and ate them.
When I was a small child my older brother told me that the crinkly ends of hotdogs (the "butts"), was where all the leftover meat parts went. You know, like the liver, intestines, bladder...stuff like that. To this day I can not eat the ends of hot dogs.....I'm 31 years old and it still affects me.....and I cut the ends off my children's hot dogs too!
My dad used to tell us that Twinkies made you have to use the bathroom - so we always ate them in great moderation.
I used to believe that "burgers" were really called "boogers" and "boogers" were really called "burgers."
