When I was little my parents would tell me if I ate candy before noon I would get worms.
When I was about 6 we went to a chinese restaurant and my dad bought a packet of those white rabbit toffees so in the car I asked him what the toffees were made of and he said little white rabbits from that day on you would never see me eat one ever until he told me the truth
My grandma told me that the filling inside of fig rolls was mashed up flies! I wouldn't eat them anymore after that.
one day me and my cousin planted skittles in my grandma's backyard because we actually thought it'd rain skittles!!!!
Until I was about 16 I used to believe, for some unknown reason that Marshmallows grew on bushes. I remember I asked my my mom which state grew the most marshmallows and she looked at me like I had two heads. We still laugh about that.
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 I was about 7, I thought Ben and Jerry's 'Chunky Monkey' ice cream really had monkey in it, and refused to eat it.
I have a sweet (rightly so) childhood memory....Once I asked my grand mother, can chocolate get kids? I loved chocolate (I still do...) and was thrilled by that idea...She said "wait and see". In the evening she laid some chocolate at a piece of paper and told me to wait till next morning....The next morning a lot of similar chocolate was there....Oh, the chocolate got kids! I was so thrilled!
My mom would make "Lime Cloud" pies when I was young. She would only make them when I was taking my nap and only on cloudy days. She had me convinced that went out and gathered clouds to make the pie!
I used to believe that candyfloss melted. I believed this because I asked my mum to hold mine while I went on a ride at the fair. When I got back it was gone and she told me it had melted.
I, along with many others, used to believe that if you ate pop rocks and downed it with Jolt Cola, you would explode. I still won't try it.
When I was younger, my older cousins tricked me into believing that you can make ice cream by turning a "big wheel" tricycle upside down, spinning the big wheel, and yelling "ICE CREAM, ICE CREAM!". Very odd indeed.
when i was 10, my 6 year old sister told me that the white stuff in oreos was goat cheese and I believed her for many years thinking "wow! i love goat cheese, that stuff is so good!"
when i was younger i belived that if you eat "jelly Babies" you would have a baby (so i refused to eat them!) and i also belived if you eat "Love Hearts" you would get and extra heart.
only found out it was not true when i was given a huge pack of "Jelly Babies" for my birthday and i refused to eat them when i told her she burst out laughthing and promptly gave me the "how a women has a baby talk!!" i also got told about love hearts then as well!!
I used to believe that if you ate to much cookie-dough you'd turn into a camel.
I used to believe that different colors of M&Ms were different flavors. I tried hard to distinguish the difference in their flavors. I had to admit that the difference was not very great, but eventually decided that the light brown ones were my favorite flavor by a detectable margin. Then I was so sad when they discontinued the light brown ones in favor of making blue ones. I still miss the light brown ones a bit to this day.
When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I used to believe that the candy called the "$100,000" bar, actually cost $100,000! I was always avoided buying it because I only had 50 cents or so in my pocket.
My grandad used to eat Bourbon biscuits, and he told me that there was a monster hiding in the cream centre- so, to eat them safely, you had to split the biscuit in two to make sure the monster wasn't there. I didn't realise what an impact he had on my life--I'm 36 and I caught my 9 year old daughter opening a Bourbon biscuit. I asked why, and she said 'to make sure there isn't a monster there' God bless you grandad--you got two generations at it now!!!
I remember when I was at school, we had an RE lesson and had to take in food that was traditionally ate by a particular religion. One week it was Islam, so we took in our food, and I went home and told my mum I wanted to be a Muslim because they ate turkish delights (someone had brought them in), and I thought the only way I could eat them was if I was Muslim! She did explain I could if I didn't!
when i was younger my older sister told me that lint from the drier was cotton candy, i believed it and ate it all.
