When at the Fair one time, my husband asked our daughter, age five, if she would like an elephant ear. (A large fried pastry, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon). She was quite upset about the idea of eating an elephant's ear and now at age 21 still isn't crazy about them.

i used to believe that a kiwi fruit was a genetically modified fruit made from melon and banana (the banana being the middle). why? because my best friend told me so, so i believed her, and would never eat it after that... or until I discovered that it was a joke, and then discovered that I am illergic to kiwi fruit!

When I was about 8, an older friend and her brother convinced me that mayonnaise was made from the stuff inside pimples. Although I later learned this wasn't true (duh), because of the image I still couldn't eat mayonnaise for about 25 years.

I remember when my older sister was eating a store-bought sandwich. I asked her what kind it was. Trying to gross me out, she said it was a roach sandwich. "See those little thingies there? Those are the wings", she said. I believed her for a few weeks. Then I realized that it wasn't a roach sandwich after all, so I started to buy those sandwiches and pretended they had roaches in them. I said, "Look, Sis, I'm eating a roach sandwich".

In the first grade, standing in the lunchline, I told the other boys that the weenies the cooks were serving were actually weeners cut off other boys to make girls. How else could you make a girl? This made alot of the boys swear off hotdogs.

my mum used to try and get me to eat brussell sprouts be telling me theye tasted like sweeties. They didnt. They got fed to the dog, hidden behind the boiler and placed under the plate so I could get away from the table. When my mum used to lift my ultra clean plate up there would be a whole host of brussell sprouts hidden under the rim!

I remember being really turned off of tinned Potted Meat (we used it as a sandwhich spread when I was a kid) after hearing my mom jokingly refer to it as "Potty" (as in toilet) Meat. Given what Potted Meat actually is, I should have been turned off to begin with.
