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.
When I was younger I loved cake, but like most children, disliked coffee. So for years, I avoided coffee cake because I thought it tasted like coffee. Little did I know, that it only meant that it is a type of cake that goes well with coffee.
When I was about 4, I had a packet of chocolate covered raisins. Some of the candies had little holes in them where air bubble had been in the liquid chocolate. I thought these holes were from little bugs burrowing into the candies, so I threw them onto the floor. When my mom found about 20 candies on the floor, she was really mad.
My Brother (who was of course older than me) told me that marshmallows were grown from trees. he was in high school and I was in 3rd grade and i believed everything that he said. (he was a high honor student anyways...) he told me that they are from a seed and they crush it very finely and they spin it. don't they grow from trees anyways?
every friday my brother and i would get a 50cent mixture (50 cents worth of lollies in a little paper bag).i remember when mum told me that not every kid got lollies on fridays and this made me very confused because i thought that the whole world did it, not just my family
I used to think "Smarties" were a type of candy that you got if you were stupid. Then they would make you smart.Hmmmm..........still can't figure out why.......
Whe I first bought my own packet of 'smarties' I thought that the orange ones were a new addition. The reaseon for this is that I had grown up, never having tasted an orange smartie as my mum used to take them aout and eat them before giving the sweets to me and my sister!
when i was 3, i my mother always told me to eat my greens, meaning vegitables, because they're good for you. One day a lady asked me if i wanted a gummy bear.i said," Sure just make sure i have a green one because they're good for you."
i used to think that the red colourin gon Smarties was made from Beatles blood. In fact, I still do!!
when i was little my mom used to eat jolly ranchers alot...but whenever my brother or i would ask for one she'd tell us we couldn't have them cause they were "mommy candies"...i don't think i even figured out they had another name until i was 9.
I used to no ear cotton candy because I thought that I was eating the angels clouds. If I then ate their clouds where would the angels live?
When I was about 10, I told my very gullible friend that I knew where Mars Bars REALLY came from. I told her that my other friend's mum visited Mars frequently and brought down parts of it and sold them off as chocolate. I THINK she believed me ....
When I was little, my dad used to pack Mentos Candy in his brief case. I would often ask for one, and I guess he didn't want to share, because he todl me they were medicine. So I thought for years that mentos were some kind of medicine. Once, my grandmother offered me a few Mentos from her purse, and she couldn't figure out why I thought they were medicine.
i used to belive that if you didnt eat your easter eggs quickly they would hatch and you have to keep the bird forever i every easter i would eat them all at once how sick i was ewww
MY GRAN WHO USED TO LOCK US OUT OF THE KITCHEN AND SAY MR COOKINGS IS BRINGING ME AND MY SISTER SWEETS. I USED TO IMAGINE THIS MAN FLYING THROUGH THE KITCHEN WINDOW EVERY DAY AND WAS EXCITED, UNTIL I FOUND OUT MR COOKINGS WAS ACTUALLY THE KITCHEN CUPBOARD.
Somebody told me when I was 7 that you can't gain weight until you were 16. So, I ate all the sweets I wanted, and now at age 13, I have now just lost all the weight after realizing my faults.
I use to believe that if I ate to much sugar just by itself, it would become worms inside my stomach.
You know how the wrappers of tootsie pops have pictures on them? One of the pictures is of an Indian shooting a star with his bow and arrow, but it isn't printed on all of them, only about half. When I was little, an older kid in the neighborhood told us that if you found a wrapper with that picture, you could turn it in to a store and they would give you a free plane trip to Hawaii. I totally believed her! I sort of imagined that the cashiers at convenience stores had tickets to Hawaii in their cash registers, just waiting for some little kid to come in with a wrapper. There was a store that sold tootsie pops down the street from our house, and we went in to show the employees our candy wrappers, hoping to get a free vacation. They were rather amused.
when my mom used to tell me someone had a sweet tooth, i thought it was like an actual tooth in the back of your mouth, and only certain people were born with that extra tooth. I was jealous of people with "sweet tooths" because I wanted an extra tooth in my mouth too.
