When I was about five/sixish I would go to the dairy and only but the fruit shaped lollies, like strawberries and grapes, because I though that they were the healthy ones :)
i once believed that foil in the chocolates are part of what we should eat.
I used to believe that if I ate gushers, my head would turn into a fruit like in the commercials.
I used to believe that if i bought a Wonka Bar I would find a golden ticket and get to see Willy Wonka.
I believed Smarties made you smarter. Or standing underneath or by anything that advertised smarties made you smart
When my mom was little, a family friend told her that candy corn (her favorite candy) would grow into a plant and produce more candy if she planted it. She and her sister wasted an entire bag of candy corn.
My Mom works at a pre-school. My sister and I always go with her and one day when we went, we were eating air heads. All the little kids crouded around us wanting candy. We told them that if they ate an air head then their head woud turn into a balloon. After class, there were two little twin boys, their Mom was late to pick them up so my sister gave them each an airhead candy. One of them took a bite and his brother freiked out that his head was going to blow up like a balloon and go to outer space. Then both of them started to freik out. I felt so bad. But my sister said that they can eat them because she got permission from the air head on the wrapper. I will never forget that :3
I used to believe that if you ate the candy, gushers, your head would turn into the fruit that the flavour was. Once i ate one for the first time and my mom tricked me and said that my head was a watermelon. Unfortunately for me, there were no mirrors around so I could'nt see.
I used to think that 'Nerds' candy (basically sugar coated in flavoring) would make your eyesight poor and you would have to wear glasses, and that was why they often call people with glasses nerds.
I always thought that the gummy worms were real worms that had been mummified
This is a take different take on the common belief about gushers.
When I was three, I was smart enough to know that gushers don't really turn your head into fruit. I ate them and nothing happened. However, once, in first grade, someone brought in gushers. One kid wondered if gushers really turned your head into fruit. I told him I ate them when I was three and nothing happened. Then that kid said that you have to be older like the kids in the commercials for it to work!
As a child, I used to believe that eating fruit pastels would make me turn into a crayon. A red fruit pastel would mean a red crayon and so on!
When I was really little I used to think the you could get drunk by eating Margarita flavored jelly belly jellybeans...I used to always avoid all of the green ones b/c I was afraid that I'd eat a Margarita one and get in trouble =]
My cousin told me that pistachio ice-cream was made of worms and shoelaces
I used to believe that cotton candies were made by airplanes or helicopters flying high up in the sky and getting a big plastic bag or glass to scoop out some clouds. Then colour it then wrap it..
I was a pretty silly kid back then...
When I was young, I went on a visit to my mother's family in America... I thought the candy called 'nerds' were boogies covered in sugar, and I also thought that 'wax lips' (and other edible wax facsimiles of body parts) were actually parts of dead people that were left over after cremation!
To this day, I refuse to eat those things.
I used to believe that to get the flavor blue rasberry they froze the raseberries
I used to beleive that if you didn't eat the head first off of a gummy animal, The gummy would eat you from the inside out.
When I was younger, I thought that if you take a handful of peanuts and then closed your hand, it would turn into a Snickers bar. It worked on the commercial, so it should work for me too. I told my mom I wanted a thing of peanuts, and she found this weired because I didn't even like them. When she saw me closing my hand on them repeatedly and I told her what I was doing , she asked me why I just didn't ask for a Snicker bar. I said I thought this would be cooler. But finally she got me a Snickers bar anyway, lesson learned.
