sweetiesShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that cotton candy was made out of cotton and sugar.
When I was little, my big brother told me that malted milk balls were really made of dehydrated earthworms. Of course, he really just wanted me to give him all of my candy. It worked. I still can't eat the stupid things.
I used the thing that Cadbury's Eater Creme Eggs had real egg inside. I was well into my teens before I could bring myself to try one.
I used to think you could only eat sundaes on sunday.
I thought sugar cones were made of cardboard.
I used to think Timbits (mini doughnuts from Tim Hortons) came from the center of doughnuts, and that was why doughnuts have holes in the middle.
I used to believe that if you ate alot fo Jell-0, Bill Cosby would come give you a prize. My mom told me that because she worked for Jell-o or something so she probably got it for free
My mom used to tell me that Jell-o was made from horse hooves. I found out recently that wasn't true but that still doesn't make my stomach feel any more relieved.
I used to believe that Pixie stix were actual magic pixie dust and if you ate one, then while you were sleeping, a pixie would come and put a curse on you and sew your mouth shut for eating her precious Pixie dust.I'm 12 now and i still have trouble sleeping after eating Pixie Stix!
i used to believe cotton candy was real cotton after going to chuckie cheese and my brother told me
I used to believe that doughnuts were made by putting apples in the microwave.
Remember Pop-eye sticks??? Well, to me they looked exactly like the sticks lollipops are on, so i used to believe that lollipop sticks were entirely edible. Well, when my mother finally told me they were simply paper, i refused to eat the candy pop-eye sticks thinking they too were just paper.
My sister used to believe that if she ate those 'parma violets' sweets she would have the power of flying, and she would try jumping off the stairs (but only about as far up as the fourth stair) to see if it worked when she had them. Other sherbert sweets, strangely, weren't endowed with such powers.
when we were little we lived in the country w/a garden my sister and i thought we could plant m&m's amd grow them,our parents went along the row w/ those little snack sized packs and we really thought we grew m&ms over night!
When I was little, my parents would take me to Dairy Queen as a special treat. I would look at the pictures of the sundaes and other fancy treats and want one. My mother told me that those were just pictures to look at, that Dairy Queen really only sold ice cream cone. Sad thing is, I actually believed her for years. When I saw other people with sundaes, she told me that at Dairy Queen the sundaes were made with broccoli and spinach and that they were nasty and I wouldn't like them. I believed her for several years. Would my mom lie to me?
When I was little, we visited a neighbor and I was checking out the Sweet & Low packets on the table. Mom told me not to touch those. Why? "Because they cause cancer."
I assumed this was the actual purpose of Sweet & Low, like it was some kind of suicide pill. Needless to say, I thought the neighbors were pretty scary for keeping cancer poison attractively displayed right on the table.
My Mom wouldn't let me have Nerds candy when I was a kid because it would get stuck in the carpet. I didn't know this though and thought anything my parents wouldn't let me do was sinful or wrong in some way. For the longest time I believed Nerds were immoral to eat and I always wondered what kind of bad parents my friends must have if they ate them.
When I was younger, my older cousins tricked me into believing that you can make ice cream by turning a "big wheel" tricycle upside down, spinning the big wheel, and yelling "ICE CREAM, ICE CREAM!". Very odd indeed.
I used to think Smarties would really make you smart, so I would eat them all the time, only to find out they just gave me tooth aches.
My farther told my brother and i that when you eat a doughnut (the kind with loads of sugar on) you wern't aloud to lick your lips or fingers untill you where finished! he would then delight it watching us try accomplish this!
(it's even harder than it sounds)
