I used to believe that marshmallows were grown. I just wondered HOW they grew. I pictured something like a pumpkin patch. It took a while to figure out they were made with sugar.

When I was little I was told all children love chocolate. I hated it and lived in real dread for many years that someone would find it out.

I usd to believe that when vanilla ice cream got stale the store sent the big carton back to the factory where it was turned into chocolate ice cream and sold back to the store. I thought I was not allowed to eat chocolate ice cream because that was how it was made.

Up until I was about 7 or 8, I would never eat chocolate with peppermint in, because on the chocolate rappers they'd always have pictures of the mint leaves, and I was always taught that eating plant leaves was dangerous or deadly.

I used to believe that red and orange colored candies (i.e. Skittles, M&Ms, Smarties, Gummy Bears) belonged together. The yellow ones were dissatisfied with their green partners, and were always trying to hook up with the oranges. The reds could stand up for themselves, but sometimes the blues would lend a hand.

Accordingly, I never ate orange and yellow candies together. I still don't--it's that hard for me to shake.

My friend's mom told me I shouldn't eat raw jello out of the package because it gave you bookworms. I was so scared I smacked the box out of my friends hand, when she brought it to school one day.

We were in line to get into our 3rd grade class and my friend had a stash of red licorice in her pocket so i asked her:
"Can I have some Licor?"
my abbreviation for licorice sounded like liquor and so she and the rest of my class were alarmed. She insisted she didn't have a liquor and i knew that she did. We were in a fight about it for weeks.

Thanks to the old skittle commercials, I used to believe that if you planted skittles in the ground, a giant rainbow would grow and it would rain skittles.

In the late 1970s, the chocolate/hazelnut candy "Toffifay" had an advertisement that claimed it was "too good for kids." I thought that meant it was *illegal* for kids to buy it, and I didn't get up the courage until I was 18 - a legal adult!
