That tuxedos were licorice flavored. I got this from watching a muppet eat a bow tie on Sesame Street. Odd conclusion, I know.
My brother was convinced that the people who made Mounds and Almond Joy also made a "Spunow" bar, due to him reading a Mounds label upside-down
i used to think that napoleon invented neopolitan ice cream
When I was very small, my brother and I used to roast marshmallows over the kitchen stove. When mine would catch fire, I used to think it was Abraham Lincoln. I would hold my fork aloft, burning marshmallow at the tip, and announce to the room, MR. PRESIDENT!!
Oddly, my brother knew which president I was talking about.
When I was younger, my cousin used to tell me that there was bird poop inside every choloate Cadbury Easter Egg. I would then stop eating my candy and end up giving it to her to eat. When she ate it like nothing, I would ask her, "If there's bird poop inside, then how come you get to eat it?" She replied, "Because I'm special." It wasn't until I was about 8 that I realized that she was only kidding.
I was certain chocolate orange's had been banned, which is why I got scared of the advert and the fact I was recieving them as Christmas presents, very worrying for a small child.
Of course, it turns out, it was the Clockwork Orange which was banned (and it wasn't even banned after all that...)
I used to believe that if I held a handful of peanuts, closed my fingers over them and then opened up my hand, there would be a Snickers bar in their place (chocolate bar with peanuts and caramel), because that's what happened on the television commercial. I began to realise that this wasn't possible, but for years I always tried it when I had peanuts, just in case.
i believed that little men sat in the back of vending machines and pushed the sweets forward.
i used to believe that my older cousin always carried these green pink & white candies in her purse & i used to sneek in there & eat a couple of them come to find out years later that they were birth control pills
When I was little I was told all children love chocolate. I hated it and lived in real dread for many years that someone would find it out.
I used to think the woman on the the Sunmaid Raisin box was my mom
when i was younger i used to believe that you had to eat the chocolate bunnies ears off first so it couldnt hear you eating the rest of it. then of course you had to eat the eyes, so it couldnt see, then the legs so it couldnt hop away when it go scared. of course i dont believe this now but i still eat my chocolate bunnies in this particular order.
Chocolate cake has chocolate in it. Carrot cake contains carrot. At a birthday party, I was really enjoying a slice of cake and asked the birthday child's mother what sort of cake it was. She said "sponge cake". I didn't eat the rest. I didn't know whether it was made from sea sponges or kitchen sponges, but neither seemed very appetising.
When I was little, we visited a neighbor and I was checking out the Sweet & Low packets on the table. Mom told me not to touch those. Why? "Because they cause cancer."
I assumed this was the actual purpose of Sweet & Low, like it was some kind of suicide pill. Needless to say, I thought the neighbors were pretty scary for keeping cancer poison attractively displayed right on the table.
When I saw a sign saying "Ice Cream Sold Here" I thought that meant they had sold out of all Ice Cream. My mum knew I thought that and carried on pretending I was right so she wouldn't have to buy me any.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
