My friend used to believe that eating smarties would make you smarter and one day she was eating them at school and since we weren't allowed to eat candy in school the teacher told her to stop eating them. She replied "But they make me smart"
My mom liked to eat Three Musketeers bars when I was little. Because of the silver wrapping, I thought they were batteries. I would go around telling ppl that my mom ate batteries and my mom got worried that I would start eating batteries myself. My bad.
When I was a young one, i absoutley LOVED ice cream sandwiches with next to all I held dear. Everytime the folks brought some home from the store, I'd be the first one to gobble up five in a day and gladly help with the groceries...,my precious sweet sandwiches as my first target.
So naturally, my older brother, who liked the treats from heaven as much as I did, got annoyed and one day told me that if I ate too many, I'd grow fat enough to crush our stove. But that didn't work, hence my high metabolism. Then he let his imagination rip as he claimed the vanilla ice cream was indeed frozen lard and mucus drained from the dead bodies at the mourge and ground chilled ear cartiladge. And he didn't stop there. He said the chocolate graham crackers were in fact mashed boogers, smashed by people's feet like wine grapes in a huge bathtub except these people had foot corns, and gangrene and hadn't washed their feet in weeks and never changed their socks.
Not gullible as most children, I asked why the dessert tasted so good, and he sophisticatedly said they had "flavor-enhancing technology" and that all the mucus slime and boggers had been frozen and "enhanced" to the "seemilngly" delicious bar I so loved to eat.
After telling my father (the fountain of all truth) , who was just as fed up with my ice cream sandwhch gluttony, went along with my brother and with a strait face said it was true.
Needless to say, my brother had all the ice cream sandwhiches he could stomach.
I used to believe that my mother wouldn't notice when I opened a new pack of cookies, eat some of them, then rearrange the ones left in the package, and seal the package with some sellotape. Being a mom myself now, I know that it is impossible not to notice....
Until I was about 7, I genuinely believed easter eggs were empty cardboard boxes, as my parents would take out the chocolate and eat it, to protect my health!
one day my lil sis was about to eat some strawberry icecream .I wanted it so bad I told her it was made out of ladybugs.she gladly gave me her icecream.
We were in line to get into our 3rd grade class and my friend had a stash of red licorice in her pocket so i asked her:
"Can I have some Licor?"
my abbreviation for licorice sounded like liquor and so she and the rest of my class were alarmed. She insisted she didn't have a liquor and i knew that she did. We were in a fight about it for weeks.
I used to believe, after my mum told me, that the Ferrero Rocher that people ate on adverts were chocolate covered sprouts too cut down on expenses. I found out the truth some five years later when
When i was younger i used to think that those balls with bubble bath in were sweets and my sister ate them too so i copied her. I always thought too my self they aren't really that nice!
I thought Marshmallows were a fungus becuase I confused them with Mushrooms. I have learned to enjoy mushrooms but still don't like Marshmallows...
When i was little there used to be an advert where a man rolled up some snow and turned it into a chocolate mint cream to give to his girlfriend. I was convinced that was how they were made & for the next couple of years, every time it snowed i used to try & make them! I was SO frustrated that i just couldn't get it right. Deary me!
When I was a kid, I used to think that tablets were sweets for grown-ups
I used to believe that there was a shop in switzerland that sold bags of bogeys with sugar for eating
when i was a kid, i used to believe that 'polos' (a british mint sweet with a hole through the middle) used to give you special super-powers when you ate them (i was a green-eyed fan of christopher reeve's superman at the time, i think). as a result, me and my friend used to sit in the garden, munch a load, and then beat each others brains out for a few hours each weekend. maybe my parents should've replaced them with ritalin.
in my country people buy or bake tasty cookies for new year eve,when i was 4years old i used to believe these cookies come from trees and cooky trees bloom only one time in year for new year
when i was little my uncle would give me angel food cake and he would tell me it's an angels birthday and thats what they are eating in heaven.
I used to take the name "Jawbreakers" literally and assumed that they were meant to be chewed at the risk of breaking your teeth.
When I was a kid, somebody told me that there was formic acid (which is called "antz acid" in german)in mentos.
Thenceforwards i really believed that mentos is made out of squashed antz.
So i avoided eating it.
When I was about three or four, my mom always told me that chocolate was bad for you. So I thought it was created in a lab by an evil scientist who purposely made it taste good just so he could trick kids into eating it and making them unhealthy.
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!!
