I used to believe that 'cold sores' were actually called 'coleslaws' and that people got them from eating coleslaw. I never understood why people ate it if they knew they would get these awful things & then complain about them. To this day i have never eaten coleslaw.
When I was four, my dad's best friend told me that the black olives on his pizza were cockroaches (to keep me from eating his pizza - how much pizza could a four year old eat?). To this day, I can't eat black olives.
I believed that the only way I would get big boobs when I grew up was if I ate all of my vegetables at dinner. That is the lie that my parents told me......
When I was a child, my older sister told me that peas were "fish eyes" and even though I'm all grown up now and I know that they are NOT 'fish eyes', you still can't get me to eat peas!!
After seeing an episode of a childrens TV show, the name of " Mr. Bumpy", where there was a rotting toast, I believed that old, mouldy or stale toast would attack you.
How stupid is that?
I used to hate eating turkey at christmas, so my parents told me that they were giving me "Churkey", a mix between turkey and chicken, so that I would eat it. I don't know how I fell for that one so easily!
My Dad told me that the milk in coconuts was monkey wee. I believed him, not considering how on earth the monkeys would go about such an operation.
My friend Rod hates any kind of meringue pie because when he was 6 his father told him it was cow slobber.
I used to believe that peanut butter was lobster poo.
My sister told me as a child that ravioli was 'hedgehog' meat.
Still can't eat it today.......
when i was about 5 years old, we had some goldfish... my dad thought it would be funny if he pretended to eat 1, so he quickly threw a carrot into the fish tank, and picked it back out and ate it (i thought it was a fish) and up to this day, whenever i have carrots, and i put them in my mouth, he shouts "FISH" and it makes me feel realy sick!!!
until i was about 11, i used to think that the 'quiche' i saw advertised on my school dinners' board, was a mysterious nasty-sounding food, pronounced 'kwichy'. mmmmmm.
that a piece of liver in your fridge if left overnight would wrap itself around a bottle of milk
When I was young, I hated peas and was suspicious of all other pea-shaped foods, thinking that they might just be peas in disguise. I squished each and every blueberry I ate because I thought it might just be a pea holding its breath and trying to sneak into my mouth!
When was a kidd there was this one episode of a tv show where these characters were touring a cornflake factory. At one point the tour guide said they would learn about how much blood, sweat and tears went into cornflakes. Of course, being a kid I thought those were actual ingredients in the cornflakes and wondered who would want to eat that?
I also thought that meat balls were made from testicals
I don't like mustard, and once when I was around 5 went to Mcdonalds with my grandma and there was mustard on my cheeseburger. I freaked out and said I wouldn't eat it...until she told me it was yellow ketchup. I believe it was yellow ketchup until I was about 11 and I realized yellow ketchup didn't exist.
I used to believe that finding a hair in your food was good luck, because my mother would tell me that to get me to eat. To this day I have no aversion to eating food in which I find hair, but I also know it isn't good luck
When I was about five my mother threw this huge Christmas party. She kept talking about what kind of hor d'ouvres to serve. I pronounced them like 'hors, divorce" and I was convinced my mother wanted to feed horse parts to all of our guests.
When I was four, a person in my primary class often took liver sandwiches to school. At this point I didn't understand that other animals had livers, so I thought it was human liver. Nobody told me any differently, and because this other kid was doing it, I assumed it was okay, but I would never eat that stuff.
I know the difference now, but I still won't eat liver.
