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 if you didn't follow the directions on the sweetarts that said "bite em" or "suck em" that you would die. Thanks to my big sister this plagued my childhood.

When I was around four or five I heard people say "candy floss" alot. My mom is REALLY serious about keeping teeth clean, so she makes me floss very night. And I thought "candy floss" was floss that tasted like sweet candy! So I got upset that I flossed very night with boring floss. After that I always looked in the store to see if they had candy floss, but all I found was regular floss. Once I asked a clerk where the candy floss was, and he showed me a basket piled high with cotton candy. I thought, "What a moron! Doesn't he know what candy floss is?" Now, though, I know better...

I used to think that coin-operated vending machines had the magical ability to turn my coin into candy. I'd hoped that one day I'd figure out the machine's secret and turn all of my saved money into candy.

When i was young, my parents would have after-eight mints on special occasions, when people would come round for dinner. I was told that the box had a mechanical device on it, not allowing the box to open until after eight o'clock. and my bedtime was half seven!
i finally figured this out aged 18 years!!! oops!

When eating anything like jelly babies sugar mice, chocolate teddies or soldiers I would always refuse to eat the heads believing the brains to be in there and would leave them all bitten off and lined up on the table.

My grandparents lived on the coast and there was a small island on the horizon. My Poppa used to tell us it was covered in trees that grew lollies and the trunks were made out of chocolate. If we were really, really good, one day we'd take a trip out there. I absolutely believed that little tale for years! It makes me smile to think about it...

You know how the wrappers of tootsie pops have pictures on them? One of the pictures is of an Indian shooting a star with his bow and arrow, but it isn't printed on all of them, only about half. When I was little, an older kid in the neighborhood told us that if you found a wrapper with that picture, you could turn it in to a store and they would give you a free plane trip to Hawaii. I totally believed her! I sort of imagined that the cashiers at convenience stores had tickets to Hawaii in their cash registers, just waiting for some little kid to come in with a wrapper. There was a store that sold tootsie pops down the street from our house, and we went in to show the employees our candy wrappers, hoping to get a free vacation. They were rather amused.

a few years ago he told me how he had pulled this off, by sewing jelly beans to a tomato plant

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.
