When I was 3 or 4, my older cousin told me that the spaghetti type noodles in the soup I was eating weren't really noodles, but cat intestines. I believed her, but it didn't really stop me from eating them... it was tasty, after all.
My Dad used to tell me that Spam was boiled badger. To this day I haven't worked out what it actually is (and I'm 25!), so Boiled Badger is as good a guess as anything!
When I was little a doctor told my mum I lacked iron and my diet should include iron suplements. As she worked in a shipyard and was explaining this to me in the car on the way to her office I was convinced she would feed me ship parts.
Whoever put this mean idea in my head way back when I was 7 needs a real good dose of what they made me believe in ...that invisible spiders were in the cheese slices and that peanuts were actually crushed insects.... I didn't want to eat or try anything that crunched for a long time after that!!! Sometimes when I'm chewing on candy or whatever and I hear that crunching sound..I think..Please don't let it be an insect!!! UUUGGGHHH!!!! (LOL)
I used to think raisons were bits of old people and after my granny died I never at them again
My girlfriend thought that lollypop sticks were made of mashed potatoes. I thought they were made of rolled up toilet paper.
My mum used to tell me that cottage cheese was cows brains. I still ate it.
when i was younger i hated refried beans because once i asked my mom why they were called REFRIED beans and for fun she told me that "the poor people in africa got paid 5 cents an hour to chew uop fried beans and spit them into ap pan so they can be refried" and i was so repulsed i didn't eat them again until i was 14.
when i was seven, my sister told me that because i was seven i had to eat a dog biscuit everyday or else i would get really sick. so for about a week i ate a dog biscuit everyday until mum saw me eating one and told me my sister was lying.
I used to believe that it was perfectly acceptable to eat Play-Doh. My mom told me that "Non-Toxic" (which was printed on the lid of the cans) meant it wouldn't harm you if you ate it. I took this as an invitation to chow down. I can still taste the salty-doughy flavor as I sit here today. Gross.
One day my sisters bought some Ben & Jerry's "Chunky Monkey" icecream. To keep me from eating it, they told me the chunks in the icecream were real monkey chunks. I still have a fear of monkeys.
When I was in kindergarten, my neighbor, who was several years older than me, said that bologna was made from puppy tongues, and that was why it's cold and wet. I asked my parents about it when I got home, but I never did like bologna again, even after finding out that it wasn't really made from puppy tongues.
when i was a little girl my dad told me corn in a can was old people's teeth that had fallen out. i still can't eat corn.
when i was six my cousin told me the reason that courgettes were gooey and greeny was because they were the ear wax of WHALES!! they loooked icky and i believed him.....to this day i cannot bring myself to eat a courgette.
I thought that eating chicken gave me muscles (chicken and muscles sound the same in Mandarin).
When I was little, my brother and sister told me that dog food was actually coco puffs. They got me to eat a WHOLE BOWL!! Actually, dog food is gross, but not that bad. And now, every once in awhile, I take a nibble of a dog treat out of curiosity. Most of them are really gross!!! :P
Since pistachios look vaguely like they could be shriveled up and discolored peanuts, I got the idea, from their name, as a child, that "achios" was another name for peanuts, and that pistachios were peanuts that had gotten shriveled and discolored from someone peeing on them! I wondered how anyone could possibly want to eat peanuts that had been peed on. Not surprisingly it was numerous years before I ever ventured to taste pistachios. When I did I found them to be in a category like anchovies, namely foods with a taste that one can be curiously drawn to even though one wouldn't exactly call it delicious. I'm sure that if I had dared taste them as a child, my thought that they were pissed-on peanuts would have seemed to be affirmed!
To get me to eat liver and onions, my parents used to tell me it was brown chicken. And I loved it.
I used to think shell macaroni was sea shells.
I used to believe that drinking cups of viniger would make you grow big and strong
