my friend used to believe that the swirly icing on hostess cupcakes was her name written in script ;]
I used to think that bath beads were candy until I bit into one! What a shock that it was soap!
I used to believe that black people were black because they ate too much chocolate. I avoided chocolate until I was 15.
It started when, out of curiosity, I asked a black man why he was black. He answered me that he loved chocolate so much, and couldn't stop eating it (he used to love chocolate...a LOT!)
I used to believe that the candy called Smarties was some kind of medicine so I would try to eat as many as I could when I was sick
(This one isn't even from childhood, I was about 17 for this...) There's a doughnut shop I go to which sells "sour cream doughnuts" - that is, doughnuts with a little sour cream added to the batter to make it thicker. But apparently no one ever explained this to me; because at some point, after years of frequenting that doughnut shop, I had roughly this conversation with my mom:
ME: Oh no - I think they put sour cream doughnut holes in with the rest of ours!
MOM: So just don't eat them.
ME: But...they're all in the same box. Won't the sour cream rub off on the others?
That's right - I'd been seeing those doughnuts in the display case and assuming that the standard white sugar glaze on them was, in fact, a light coating of sour cream. For years. I never questioned the idea that people would actually want to eat something like that - I've always been a picky eater, so I just assumed it was one of those food things I didn't "get".
I used to believe that Cadburys cream eggs had areal yolk from a chcken in them so I used to eat around it cos the thought of an uncooked yolk didn't sound nice to eat. I am 19 now and only stopped thinking it about 4 years ago :)
I used to believe that Skor chocolate bar was only made for grown ups and if I ate it I'd die.
When I was little I thought that when you had chicken pox, they were icecream bars with bits of chicken in them, and I always wondered why I couldnt have them too
My Brother (who was of course older than me) told me that marshmallows were grown from trees. he was in high school and I was in 3rd grade and i believed everything that he said. (he was a high honor student anyways...) he told me that they are from a seed and they crush it very finely and they spin it. don't they grow from trees anyways?
When I was little..we went to a circus or something and i got some cotton candy. I left it on the table in our kitchen and the next day...it was all gone.(Someone else ate it) and my dad told me that it "dissapeared" and I believed him...so from then on I always hurried to eat my cotton candy before it evaporated!
When I was little, my big brother told me that malted milk balls were really made of dehydrated earthworms. Of course, he really just wanted me to give him all of my candy. It worked. I still can't eat the stupid things.
when I was a kid I used to think that smarties used to be medicine. everytime I got hurt I would pop a smartie in my mouth and be fine and on my way to be doing more stupid things.
I used to think that because on the Trix cereal commercials they said "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!" that my parents would get in trouble if they ever are them.
I used to think that Pez candy were teeny tiny bath tubs.
I always thought that the gummy worms were real worms that had been mummified
I thought Tic-Tacs were medicine until I was 11 years old.
I used to believe if you left a mug of hot chocolate for long enough that it would turn into real chocolate! no matter how many times i tried it it didnt!
Even when I was little,I wasn't much of a candy eater.Once I found Gummy Bears in one of my goody bags from a friend's party that I had just returned from. The "bears" were figure sized and were so cute. I took them out at once and started playing with them all on my toy town,and had them interracting with my "little people". When my dad saw me playing with them,he told me that I was playing with my food. I guess I was pretty devestated when I learned that those bears were MEANT to be eaten. Maybe that's why I never ate them afterwards,and I still don't know what became of them.
When i was young, i was fairly deprived.
When I first was given choolate, at 3 y.o, I used the squares as building blocks!
I used the thing that Cadbury's Eater Creme Eggs had real egg inside. I was well into my teens before I could bring myself to try one.
