When I was about five or six years old, my mom was baking something in the kitchen that used sugar. I asked for some sugar so I could eat it, and she explained that if you eat plain sugar, you'll get worms in your stomach. I believed this for many years, probably until I was at least 11 or 12.
I used to believe that, like the commercial, if I squeezed a handful of peanuts, they would turn into a Snickers Bar.
Chocolate cake has chocolate in it. Carrot cake contains carrot. At a birthday party, I was really enjoying a slice of cake and asked the birthday child's mother what sort of cake it was. She said "sponge cake". I didn't eat the rest. I didn't know whether it was made from sea sponges or kitchen sponges, but neither seemed very appetising.
I use to think that Now and Laters were called Nomalaters up until just recently, like last week and I'm 22!!!!!
I used to believe that those little coloured tablets included with Easter egg dying kits were candy, so for several years in a row I ate them and never figrued out that they were the dyes for the eggs! My mother finally discovered my mistake when she saw that my mouth and lips were deep blue one year! Ever try to get that stuff off? The neighborhood must have heard my howls as mom scrubbed like crazy!
i was always a bright child, really smart and polite, and i dont remember when it started, but my parents began to tell me that the candies Smarties were made of kids when they got to smart. And the lollypops Dumdums were made out of stupid kids. That scared me for a while because i knew i was smart
UP UNTIL I WAS 5 OR 6 I DID NOT KNOW WHAT COTTON CANDY WAS-UNTIL MY GRANDPARENTS TOOK ME AND MY SISTER TO THE STATE FAIR AND I WOULD NOT EAT IT BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS HAIR. I LITERALLY WANT TO VOMIT ON THE THOUGHT OF HAIR IN MY FOOD OR DRINK. ON THEIR URGING THAT IT WAS CANDY I TRIED FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO GET ME TO TRY IT. I LOVE IT. I AM NOW 34.
I used to think that inside a cadbury egg was a real egg, except it had chocolate instead of a shell. I was always afraid to eat one, because my mom had always said not to eat anything with raw egg in it.
When I was about eight I asked my older cousin if I could have some of his candy (called Toffifay). He said, "No, it's only for adults." I didn't realize that nothing stood in my way to buy it myself for years. Come to think of it my cousin isn't that much older than me.
when i was young my grandfather told me if i planted some jellybeans i had gotten for easter, they would grow
well i did and the next time we came over to visit there was a little plant with jelly beans hanging off of it
we even took a picture
a few years ago he told me how he had pulled this off, by sewing jelly beans to a tomato plant
i sure thought it was real
My grandparents lived on the coast and there was a small island on the horizon. My Poppa used to tell us it was covered in trees that grew lollies and the trunks were made out of chocolate. If we were really, really good, one day we'd take a trip out there. I absolutely believed that little tale for years! It makes me smile to think about it...
When I was 5 or 6 my brother told me that Raisenetts (chocolate covered raisens) were actually chocolate covered flys. Still to this day I can not eat them or any raisens.
My dad used to tell me that Hostess Snowballs were only for adults. I believed him for many years
I used to believe that vanilla wasn't a flavor. It just didn't have chocolate in it!
I used to think that the Cadbury eggs, that come out at Easter, were filled with real egg yolk.
I used to believe I would be able to breath fire, just like the picture on the red hots package. I could not wait to buy them just to try that out!
my sister used to believe that the cone of an ice cream cone was poisonous and just there to hold the ice cream. she would lick out all the ice cream and throw the cone out. She believed it till she was 5. what a silly!
I was told that those little aniseed balls that are too hard to crunch, and you need to suck, made your teeth go black. the whole family was in on it, aunts, grandparents, parents. Even when I checked my teeth and they werent black, I was still told they were AND I BELIEVED IT!! And the only way to clean the black off your teeth was to eat a raw carrot!
I always thought that smarties made you smart, so if the teacher gave themp to us at school, I'd eat them quickly so I did good in case we had a pop quiz. I actually still belive it today.
I used to believe that if you accidently swallowed a piece of bubblegum it would inflate in your throat and stop you breathing.
