When me and my sisters were younger, my mom told us that the ice cream man was the music man, until my grandmother introduced us to the "music man"
My Dad used to tell me that if I put too much syrup on my waffles, my pancreas wouldn’t be able to produce enough insulin. Thus, my pancreas would fail and I WOULD DIE!! From then on, I never put too much syrup on anything haha.
I used to believe that if you licked ice-cream, it would never finish.
When I was preschool/kindergarten age I believed that Trolli gummy worms were actual worms that you could buy and keep as pets who would be all bright colored and wonderful. I was convinced if you wrote the company they would send you some for free. I kept telling this to my mother, who for some reason let me believe it was the truth.
when i was 4 or 5 i used to think neon sour gummy worms were real because they always twisted and turned
I used to think when the ice cream truck was playing music, it meant no more ice cream. At least that's what my neighbor told me. It really DID have ice cream
When i was little I used to believe that food with faces on them could feel the pain of being eaten e.g. potato smileys, so when ever I got my favorite sweets (winnie the pooh gummies) I would apologise to each sweet for the pain I was about to put them through before a eat them but I would spare the piglets because piglet was my favourtive and I didn't want to hurt him.
When I was little my dad told me that they used those little red spiders to make the red Smarties red. I didn't eat any red Smarties cuz I didn't want to eat bugs.
Until I was about 7, I genuinely believed easter eggs were empty cardboard boxes, as my parents would take out the chocolate and eat it, to protect my health!
When i was little there used to be an advert where a man rolled up some snow and turned it into a chocolate mint cream to give to his girlfriend. I was convinced that was how they were made & for the next couple of years, every time it snowed i used to try & make them! I was SO frustrated that i just couldn't get it right. Deary me!
I thought Marshmallows were a fungus becuase I confused them with Mushrooms. I have learned to enjoy mushrooms but still don't like Marshmallows...
When i was younger i used to think that those balls with bubble bath in were sweets and my sister ate them too so i copied her. I always thought too my self they aren't really that nice!
I used to believe that different colors of M&Ms were different flavors. I tried hard to distinguish the difference in their flavors. I had to admit that the difference was not very great, but eventually decided that the light brown ones were my favorite flavor by a detectable margin. Then I was so sad when they discontinued the light brown ones in favor of making blue ones. I still miss the light brown ones a bit to this day.
I used to think that cotton candy was made from actual cotton so I never wanted to try it
when i was a kid i used to believe that snowcones come from snow
One day we sent my friend to return the boat locker keys to the life guard. When he came back he said proudly "That guy knew me."
"Really?" I asked.
"Yes," he said, "that was the guy who told me sand made ice cream more nutritious and I believed him."
I used to believe that black people were black because they ate too much chocolate. I avoided chocolate until I was 15.
It started when, out of curiosity, I asked a black man why he was black. He answered me that he loved chocolate so much, and couldn't stop eating it (he used to love chocolate...a LOT!)
I used to take the name "Jawbreakers" literally and assumed that they were meant to be chewed at the risk of breaking your teeth.
When I was 5ish or so, my cousin convinced me that if I had a pixie stick. It would turn my blood that color. I never have had a pixie stick since.
You know those little candy dots that come on rolls of paper? When I first tried some, I was in a candy store with a mannequin of a smiling man in a suit in the corner. (I think it had coupons or something in its outstretched hand.) My dad whispered to me, "If you eat too many of those at once, you'll freeze up like that guy!" I wasn't sure if he was joking or serious, but I started feeling pretty weird right about then!
