I used to believe cotton candy was really cotton. I distinctly remember looking out the door in horror as my family sat around the patio table eating the stuff. They offered me some, but I didn't want to eat cotton! Now I love the stuff; can't get enough of it. Yum!
When I was younger, my cousin had told me that if you eat candy, you would grow monsters in your teeth. Of course he was talking about cavities. It still made me cry and had me nervous, but that never stopped me from my sweetie desires.
Until I read something on this very website I honestly thought that vanilla WAS just the absence of chocolate...not ti's own flavor.
When my sister was 5 she ate candy soo much. one day when she was eating skittles from her halloween candy sack, my mom told her if she ate too much, her dentist wouldnt give her any prizes any more becuz she didnt do a good job brushing her teeth. She also told her that when she ate a couple more, she would turn into a skittle and she wouldnt be able to eat or drink. she carried this belief on for quite some time. She is now 9 years old and mom told her the truth.
I had just finished my 5th birthday party, and my mom was downstairs cleaning up. When she put away the cake, she gave me the candle on the top. It was one of the kind that are in the shape of the number. So mine was this big colorful 5. She said that I could take it up to my room. This was a big surprise for me, I thought, because she had never let me take candy up to my room before. Racing upstairs, I closed the door behind me and sat down. Then I took the biggest bite out of that big piece of candy. Only to get the wax of what was really a candle all over my teeth. I couldn't get it off for days.
When I was a kid, my older sister told me that Fig Newtons were filled with crushed cockroaches. That was over 30 years ago and I still can't bring myself to eat a Fig or any other type of Newton bar.
when i was like four, my mom took me with her to pick my brothr upfrom school, and i had a pack of skittles. i thought that if i planted some skittles and watered them, then a giant rainbow would appear and it would rain skittles, just like on the old commercials. I remember i got so upset at my mom for not letting me go to the waterfountain at the school so that i could plant the skittles.
When i was small...i used to play outside with my cousins and everything...so my mom told me that we could make candy out of rocks..thats wat i belived it was made out of..since it was so hard...so we would find empty chandy wrappers and put little rocks in em.. For the longest time i belived that candy were made out of rocks...(i also swallowed one...since it was CANDY)
My cousin once told me that most parts of a chocolate bar were made of dog poop. Being the awsome cousin that he was he'd give me the very little that wasn't filled with poop. He'd make a sacrafice and eat the rest.
my older cousin told me that kids who ate too much candy wouldnt grow. ever. i was a short kid. i loved candy.
i tried from then on not to eat candy but she said that it was too late for me. i cried for days.
Well, I began reading when I was little, and I was anemic, so I had to eat food that was high in iron and protein. One day, my parents gave me a pack of M&M's as a treat. I was reading the nutrition facts. When I saw that the M&M's had 2 grams of protein, I jumped in my seat and said "M&M'S HAVE PROTEIN! THEY'RE HEALTHY FOOD!" Then I was at my grandma's house, where she was going to make a "healthy dinner". When I got my plate full of steamed carrots and broccoli, I asked innocently "Where are the M&M's?"
When I was young my parents gave me my first bit of cotton candy at a circus. They explained what it was, and I cried because I didn't want to eat it. I thought they were trying to feed me balled up tissues, for some reason.
I really believed that Lifesavers candy would save your life. When I was 6, my 4 year-old brother was diagnosed with kdney cancer. When he died a month later, I could not understand why my parents hadn't just given him a Lifesaver. When I found out that it was just candy, I never ate a Lifesaver again.
I used to be very afraid of asking for licorice to eat. This is because the way I'd always heard it pronounced sounded like "liquor-ish". I thought therefore it had liquor in it, or at least had some connection with liquor. So I thought I'd be perceived as a very bad girl to want something containing or in any way connected with liquor.
In upstate New York the farmers wrap huge bales of hay in white plastic so it won't get wet out in the field. I tell my kids they are giant marshmellows on a marshmellow farm. My daughter is 6 and she is just starting to question this.
I used to believe that my father was more or less omniscient. If I swiped one or two pieces of candy from the fridge, he knew it! Was he counting them or what?! Little did I realize that my 8 siblings were also swiping one or two each, which signficantly lowered the count of the candy in the bag!
When I was little I used to think you would get an electric shock if you ate the Shock Tarts candy. So I made my sister eat them first.
I used to think that because on the Trix cereal commercials they said "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!" that my parents would get in trouble if they ever are them.
I used to believe that Marshmellows grew on trees. In Hawaii no less. I was determined to move to Hawaii and own a marshmellow grove.
When I was about seven I believed that if you dropped a candy on the ground you couldn't eat it but I would always put another one beside it so it wouldn't be alone.
