When i was young, i was fairly deprived.
When I first was given choolate, at 3 y.o, I used the squares as building blocks!
I, along with many others, used to believe that if you ate pop rocks and downed it with Jolt Cola, you would explode. I still won't try it.
When I was little I use to believe that the clouds were made of marshmellows. So I also thought that was where mashmellows came from.So I use to take all the pots and pans in my house outside when I rained to see if I could catch any. Needless to say, I was dissapointed. I went on believeing this till I was 8 and the new neighbors asked why we put pots outside.
when i was little my mom told me 2 go and plant a sweetie in the garden it was realy 2 get rid of me i thought it was because a sweetie plant would grow i waited for years before i realised!!!!
When I was a little girl my dad used to go to Baskin Robbins (an ice-cream shoppe with 31 different flavors!) every weekend. Before he would go he would always ask me what ice-cream flavor I wanted and if I wanted whipped cream, nuts, hot fudge and a cherry. I never went with him to get the ice-cream-- and so, when my childlike mind pictured this ice-cream shoppe, I believed it to be a huge factory... much like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. And, there were buttons that you could push for each option. "Press 1 for chocolate, Press 2 for vanilla, etc." Then, you'd stand at the end of a conveyer belt and wait for your "creation" to pop out at the end. Then, one day he asked if I wanted to come with him. I was so excited to see the ice-cream factory! Much to my surprise Baskin Robbins looked much like our neighborhood Dairy Queen. I was very disapointed.
One christmas, when i was about 6, I received a box of turkish delight and my Mum, as a joke, told me that it was only for adults, so I gave it all to her. I continued to give her the turkish delight out of my selection box every Christmas that I got some, i always wondered why she seemed so surprised! This also meant that i never tasted turkish delight until i was about 12.
I used to believe that ice cream cam from ice and lotion, because my mom called lotion 'cream'. If ice is edible, lotion is too, eight?
My parents got me with "marsh melons." I used to believe that marshmallows grew on vines in swampy areas, kind of like pumpkins, and that there were whole marshmallow farms like cranberry bogs. Little did I know it was a Star Trek joke!
i thought that bear claws (the donut) were real bear claws!!!
duh!!! i was such an idiot!!!
When I was about four years old, my family went to a theatrical show for children. I remember my father getting up and going out into the lobby, and then coming back with a stick of cotton candy for me. I became very upset and refused to eat it. I thought it was made from the "dust bunnies" that form under one's bed.
I was 4, sitting on my grandfather's lap, when he asked me if I wanted a Ding Dong. I was relieved when he gave me the foil-wrapped snack cake instead of what I thought he meant.
WEN I WAS LITTLE (3 OR SO) MY BIG SIS TOLD ME I WAS ALLLERGIC TO CHOCOLATE AND IF I EVER ATE CHOCOLATE AGAIN I WOULD TURN INTO AN OLD LADY INSTANTLY. ONE DAY MY MUM WAS EATING CHOCOLATE BUTTONS AND SHE GAVE ONE TO ME AND I RAN AROUND THE HOUSE CRYING MY EYES OUT FOR 2 HOURS RUNNING UNTIL MY MUM TOLD ME I WASNT ALLERGIC TO CHOCOLATE AND MY SIS HAD MADE THE WHOLE THING UP
When I was little..we went to a circus or something and i got some cotton candy. I left it on the table in our kitchen and the next day...it was all gone.(Someone else ate it) and my dad told me that it "dissapeared" and I believed him...so from then on I always hurried to eat my cotton candy before it evaporated!
The first time that I had eaten cotton candy my dad had told me that it was Peter Cottontale's tail. I felt bad eating the cotton candy and I felt even worse when I discovered that I loved eating Peter Cottontale's tail!
When our family lived in Germany, we would drive by fields with giant rolled bundles of hay that was covered with white plastic. From the road they looked like gigantic marshmellows. Jokingly, I told my 5 year old son that that's where marshmellows come from...fields. Now my son is 14, recently, he has told me that up until he was 10 years old, he had believed that marshmellows grew in fields!
When I was about 7, I thought that Reese's cups were cups belonging to Reese Witherspoon. I wondered why Reese would drink out of chocolate and peanut butter. I also wondered why stores sold them for so cheap if they belonged to a movie star.
When eating anything like jelly babies sugar mice, chocolate teddies or soldiers I would always refuse to eat the heads believing the brains to be in there and would leave them all bitten off and lined up on the table.
When I was little (about 20 years ago), halloween wasn't a very big deal where I live in England, so I was very excited when i was invited to go collecting "candy" with a friend on the American army base nearby. Apparently I embarrassed her because I didn't know any of the american words, like jackolantern or candy. All night I was knocking on doors demanding "treacle treat" and then crying when I got neither treacle or candy (which i pictured as some sort of sugary sticks wrapped in american flags!), but normal sweets and chocolate.
When I was a kid, my grandma gave me and my brother Smarties one time right before it was time to go back to school, and she said that if we ate one a day, it'd make us smart. I can't believe we actually believed her, lol.
all of us know what tootsie pops are. Well you know how the wrappers of many diffrent pictures on them. For the longest time (atleast till I was 10) I thought that if you found a wrapper with the indian pointing his arrow at the star and sent it in you could get a free bag of tootsie pops. Well this led me to rejoice everytime this symbol appeared. Later, while disgusing it with some friends (around the age of 8) I came up with a plan to buy a bag and take all the "winning" wrappers and send them in and then continue the process over and over thus getting as many tootsie pops as we wanted which caused all of us to break out in cheer.
We never tested this plan (maybe cause we just never got to it or possibly cause we didnt know where to send the wrappers) but to this day I dont know if there ever really WAS contest like that though I've come to asume there wasn't none the less I still get a bit of joy regressing back to child for a split second thinking about it everytime I find the "winning" wrapper.
