my dad told me when i was little that lifesavers grew on a certain tree. whenever we went by it he would pretend to pick some off and give them to us. A couple years later i realised that he was just taking them from his pocket. that was a sad day.

I used to believe that Cadburys cream eggs had areal yolk from a chcken in them so I used to eat around it cos the thought of an uncooked yolk didn't sound nice to eat. I am 19 now and only stopped thinking it about 4 years ago :)

When I was arpund 6 or 7, whenever we would go to a restaraunt, I would say "Daddy, I want some Squirrel ice cream!!" because no matter how many times my parents tried to get me to say swirl, I always insisted it was squirrel ice-cream.

My dad told me that if I finished a lolly and planted the stick in the garden, the next day it would grow into another lolly. So I finished it and planted the stick in the garden, and lo and behold the next day it had grown into another lolly!

My grandad used to eat Bourbon biscuits, and he told me that there was a monster hiding in the cream centre- so, to eat them safely, you had to split the biscuit in two to make sure the monster wasn't there. I didn't realise what an impact he had on my life--I'm 36 and I caught my 9 year old daughter opening a Bourbon biscuit. I asked why, and she said 'to make sure there isn't a monster there' God bless you grandad--you got two generations at it now!!!

I used to believe that if I held a handful of peanuts, closed my fingers over them and then opened up my hand, there would be a Snickers bar in their place (chocolate bar with peanuts and caramel), because that's what happened on the television commercial. I began to realise that this wasn't possible, but for years I always tried it when I had peanuts, just in case.

My uncle told me and my sister that when you break Crunchie bars the bits that fly out were champagne. I use to spend all my pocket money trying to recreate this and failing. I'm sure he had Cadbury shares.

when i was a kid, i used to believe that 'polos' (a british mint sweet with a hole through the middle) used to give you special super-powers when you ate them (i was a green-eyed fan of christopher reeve's superman at the time, i think). as a result, me and my friend used to sit in the garden, munch a load, and then beat each others brains out for a few hours each weekend. maybe my parents should've replaced them with ritalin.

I was certain chocolate orange's had been banned, which is why I got scared of the advert and the fact I was recieving them as Christmas presents, very worrying for a small child.

Of course, it turns out, it was the Clockwork Orange which was banned (and it wasn't even banned after all that...)

I used to be intrigued by those packets of FisherMan's Friend throat lozenges. I was determined to one day buy some when I went to the sweet shop but was scared to death that the shop assistant would refuse to sell them to me because I wasn't a fisherman! So I concocted a story in my head that my grandad was a fisherman and went to the shop in a big wooly jumper so i'd look the part. Bought them no probs but promtly threw up on first taste. Never bought them since!

When I was younger, my cousin used to tell me that there was bird poop inside every choloate Cadbury Easter Egg. I would then stop eating my candy and end up giving it to her to eat. When she ate it like nothing, I would ask her, "If there's bird poop inside, then how come you get to eat it?" She replied, "Because I'm special." It wasn't until I was about 8 that I realized that she was only kidding.

I used to beleive my grandad was the only person in the world to have special chocolates made just for him. When I was small my grandad always used to tell me he had a secret. Then from under his chair he would get out a box of chocolate Matchmakers and give me one. I spent countless years in confectionary shops and numerous supermarkets searching for 'secrets', thinking that these were made specially for my grandad because I could never find them and nobody else had heard of them. I discovered when my mum bought me some for Christmas, that these things were actually called Matchmakers. This was when I was in my early twneties!!
