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.
I used to call Nerds "Turds". I used to have a friend and her parents always kept boxes of Nerds. And everyday I'd ask "Can I have a turd?"
That must've been a sight to see.

My little sister used to believe that there was candy in the garbage can. This she heard from my younger brother who was 12 and she was 3. well anyways he reminded her one day at the grocery store and she actually looked through the garbage and did not find anything.
When I was around six or seven me, my sister, and cousin all thought that those stick candies filled with powder was really fairy dust. So whenever we had some each of us would eat a stick and then go to my couch and stand at the top of the couch and jump off. We thought it would give us the ability to fly.
When I was around four or five I heard people say "candy floss" alot. My mom is REALLY serious about keeping teeth clean, so she makes me floss very night. And I thought "candy floss" was floss that tasted like sweet candy! So I got upset that I flossed very night with boring floss. After that I always looked in the store to see if they had candy floss, but all I found was regular floss. Once I asked a clerk where the candy floss was, and he showed me a basket piled high with cotton candy. I thought, "What a moron! Doesn't he know what candy floss is?" Now, though, I know better...
I beleived that the little pez dispensers had to cook the pez before you could eat them, thats why you had to put them in the dispenser in the first place, little did i know that it was just for holding the candy!!
When I was about 6 years old I use to think that if a cookie crumbled all the flavor would escape.

One day while finishing up in the barn, my two children (ages 4 and 6) wouldn't stop pesting for candy. The candy acutally belonged to a fellow barnmate and was there for her to feed her horse. I told my children that the candy was horse candy and that if they ate it they would turn into horses. We were halfway home from the barn when both brokedown into tears and said they were feeling really "funny". They proceeded to tell me that they had each taken a piece of the candy without me knowing and eaten it. They both thought for sure they were beginning to grow hooves, fur, a tail and ears.
One time my mom told me (it was late at night and i was like 4) that if i ate the candy she was eationg i would get diahhreah. I asked why she was eating it and she said it couldn't happen to adults. I huess she just wanted her candy.

Once their was a boy that looked at the peppermint patties. He looked at the mint leaves on the wrapper, and found his dad eating some patties. He went to his dad and said "Dad, your supposed to smoke marijuana, not eat it."

When I was young I thought that York Peppermint Patties were illegal drugs.
I remember when I was at school, we had an RE lesson and had to take in food that was traditionally ate by a particular religion. One week it was Islam, so we took in our food, and I went home and told my mum I wanted to be a Muslim because they ate turkish delights (someone had brought them in), and I thought the only way I could eat them was if I was Muslim! She did explain I could if I didn't!
