When we were little and wanted to eat candy first thing in the morning - especially around holidays when there were a lot more sweets in the house - my mother alwasy told us that if we ate candy before breakfast we'd get WORMS!!
I usd to believe that when vanilla ice cream got stale the store sent the big carton back to the factory where it was turned into chocolate ice cream and sold back to the store. I thought I was not allowed to eat chocolate ice cream because that was how it was made.
I believed that if you put something in a candy container, it became candy. Upon finding a empty Tic Tac bottle on the ground I filled it with dirt. I gave it to my little sister telling her it was candy. She ate it, but told me that it still tasted like dirt. I was dissapointed.
When I was around six or seven me, my sister, and cousin all thought that those stick candies filled with powder was really fairy dust. So whenever we had some each of us would eat a stick and then go to my couch and stand at the top of the couch and jump off. We thought it would give us the ability to fly.
when i was little my mom used to eat jolly ranchers alot...but whenever my brother or i would ask for one she'd tell us we couldn't have them cause they were "mommy candies"...i don't think i even figured out they had another name until i was 9.
I used to think "Smarties" were a type of candy that you got if you were stupid. Then they would make you smart.Hmmmm..........still can't figure out why.......
When I was a kid, my grandma gave me and my brother Smarties one time right before it was time to go back to school, and she said that if we ate one a day, it'd make us smart. I can't believe we actually believed her, lol.
my sister used to believe that the cone of an ice cream cone was poisonous and just there to hold the ice cream. she would lick out all the ice cream and throw the cone out. She believed it till she was 5. what a silly!
when i was little i used to wonder how the ice-cream ended up inside bottom of the cone when they were just plopped on top and the cone was completely empty at first...after much thinking, i assumed the ice-cream magically appeared in the cone after some while :P
When I was younger my mom told me that if I ate raw sugar, that I would get worms. So I never ate raw suger until I was 15!
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.
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 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"
I used to think when I was very very little that when you ordered cakes with your breakfast at diners that they'd bring you a slice of cake from that glass case in the front instead of pancakes.
My friend's mom told me I shouldn't eat raw jello out of the package because it gave you bookworms. I was so scared I smacked the box out of my friends hand, when she brought it to school one day.
i used to believe that i was allergic to chocolate syrup because my older brother told me i was just so he could eat it all so i was afraid to eat chocolate for a long time until i asked my mom.
My Mom wouldn't let me have Nerds candy when I was a kid because it would get stuck in the carpet. I didn't know this though and thought anything my parents wouldn't let me do was sinful or wrong in some way. For the longest time I believed Nerds were immoral to eat and I always wondered what kind of bad parents my friends must have if they ate them.
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.
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.
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!
