I know a man who, as a child, believed that marshmallows grew on vines, in pods just like peas. He always wondered how they managed to get the seeds out without damaging the marshmallow!
when i was around seven, my friend convinced me that the gummies she gave me were magical and that they would make me sprout wings. my school uniform then had these belt loops and for some reason they seemed to look like they were poofing up after i ate the sweets. i somehow thought that the belt loops would grow into wings and i kept worrying that wing-sprouting would hurt.
that's why i love tinkerbell (:
When my dad was little he used to think vanilla was actually plain. Chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch, banana, etc. were all flavors.
If you ate green M&Ms it would make you horny.
I used to think that Pez candy were teeny tiny bath tubs.
When i was little my brother told me that if you ate one of those everlasting gobstoppers and you didn't bite it until it was a tiny little piece, it would grow back to normal size because it was "everlasting".
I believed him for years... : (
In fifth grade my teacher had this thing to motivate us before a test. She would give us smarties to help us get smarter. Well I know it sounds weird, but when she gave them to us everyone would pass the test, and if she didn't no one would. So to this day (i'm in college) I eat smarties before a test. lol
a freind of mine told her brother that airplanes were made of really hard choclate and if the passengers got hungry they could eat the seats.
When I was small, I would never eat anything like jelly babies, animal cookies, gingerbread men or anything that was animal shaped because I used to think they had feelings and I'd hurt them if I ate or bit into them - weird I know!
When I was a kid, I was scared to "death" by chocolate. I mean, look at what it does to dogs!
(Chocolate is a poison to dogs, so don't feed them chocolate!)
When I was younger, my sister told me that the candies, Smarties, were medicine and that I had to take them with water if I was gonna eat them at all. Now I know better, but I still eat them with water.
I used to believe that if you ate to much cookie-dough you'd turn into a camel.
Back when the 101 Dalamtians movie had first come out, they had white chocolate/cookie candy bars with Dalmatians on the wrapper to promote the movie. My best friend at the time and me convinced his 4 year old nice that the candy bars were made out of ground dalmatians, and everytime she took a nibble, we'd make yelping sounds. She believed us after a few minutes and started crying. It took a few years before she would eat another cookies n cream candy bar!!
I used to think that if u buried chocolate it would grow in to a chocolate tree so i tried it in our vegie patch garden i 'm not shore if i wterd it but ithink i waterd it once i used to check to see if it has grown but it didnt
When I was little my grandmother told me that blue Smarties tasted bitter and only grown ups liked the taste. Now, of course, I realise she was conning me out of chocolate. That will always be my funniest memory of her.
I used to believe that tic tacs were drugs. Something about growing up in the "Just Say No" 80s?
Every time someone would offer me a tic tac, I would say no. And I couldn't believe how many people took drugs!
My Dad used to tell me that all the leftover chocolate, eg:people threw away, dropped on the street, were collected and turned into Easter Eggs! But nothing could stop me from eating them.
When I was little, I used to believe that the chocolate Turkish Delight was made from turkeys. To this day I still can't eat it!
My parents are both very well informed when it comes to eating healthily- and they're also very clever and tactful people. When they first had my older brother, they managed to convince him that raisins were sweets. When I was born, almost four years later, they convinced me of the same thing. It wasn't until I was three and he was seven that we finally figured out that they were lying!
Our local Ice Cream shop:
I believed chocolate ice cream was made at the end of the day by combining the left over ice cream that people didn't finish during the day. They poured chocolate syrup into a large vat of leftover ice cream, froze it again, then served it to their customers the next day as Chocolate Ice Cream.
My older brother told me this when I was about 5. Even though I learned it wasn't true while I was still young, to this day (as grown and totally logical woman) I STILL don't order chocolate ice cream.
