I used to wonder why "candy" would be so rude as to put holes in my teeth, when I really, really liked it.
When I was young my mum forbade me to eat blue m&m's 'cause she believed they gave people cancer.. to this day i've never eaten one
Dark brown Smarties were poisonous.
Belief no. 1 involves "pacers", those green and white striped mints that were around when we were quite young - I can't remember what age. There used to be a TV-ad for them in which people ate pacers and - KAPOW - their clothes turned green and white stripey. I used to believe this was a magic property of the sweets and that if I ate one my clothes would go green and white too!
