(This one isn't even from childhood, I was about 17 for this...) There's a doughnut shop I go to which sells "sour cream doughnuts" - that is, doughnuts with a little sour cream added to the batter to make it thicker. But apparently no one ever explained this to me; because at some point, after years of frequenting that doughnut shop, I had roughly this conversation with my mom:

ME: Oh no - I think they put sour cream doughnut holes in with the rest of ours!
MOM: So just don't eat them.
ME: But...they're all in the same box. Won't the sour cream rub off on the others?
MOM: ...
That's right - I'd been seeing those doughnuts in the display case and assuming that the standard white sugar glaze on them was, in fact, a light coating of sour cream. For years. I never questioned the idea that people would actually want to eat something like that - I've always been a picky eater, so I just assumed it was one of those food things I didn't "get".

I've never had Toffifay (also called Toffifee) candy. This is because, when I was little, its commercial jingle was "Toffifay: it's too good for kids!' So I thought I wasn't allowed to buy it... and never did.

I remember watching Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom as a kid, probably about 6 or 7 years old, and they said that the elephants were making people unhappy by destroying "mangroves". I had no idea what those were, so I thought they were saying "Meringue Groves", and therefore I thought that somehow meringue was harvested from African trees that elephants liked to eat.

I used to think that people got fat because they ate M&Ms and Skittles and at that time I believed that candies that were that shape had little creatures inside them, and when you eat the candy they go in your stomach and build walls of fat.
