Food Misconceptions

What are some food related thoughts that you had which turned out be stupidly wrong, if not downright moronic? For example, I had at one point thought that Benihana's had something to do with bananas. I imagined that they specialized in making banana related dishes.

    I used to think southern food made people fat and/or caused health problems, especially if they ate a lot of it.
    I have since learned the errors of my racist ways.

    I thought mayonnaise was some sort of synthetic thing like margarine until I saw someone make it. Still didn't much care for it.

    Growing up my mom would buy this jelly at the store that was in rectangle form that was made of fruit. It was packaged like chicken/steak, on a foam tray and with plastic wrap. I liked Garfield so she would call it "lasagna" to get me to eat it. Like a year later I go to my cousin's house for Thanksgiving I think, and they have that same jelly. I pointed to it and said out loud "cool, you have lasagna!". Everybody laughed at me, not know wtf i was talking about and I cried. I learned that it was not lasagna that day.

        I know what anon is talking about.
        Some supermarkets, like one near my old office, sell it on foam, plastic wrapped trays in the produce section. I know out as cotognata but I live in the US now where it goes by the Spanish name dulce de membrillo:

    My father-in-law never ate Gelato because he thought it was just jello. My wife and I went to an Italian bakery and asked if he wanted some and when he said no we were a bit surprised because the dude is like 400lbs. We got him a small cup and he sounded it and was upset we didn't get him more. Stupid boomer.

    My mom doesn't know the difference between marsala and masala. But when COVID happened, she also kept calling it "corvid". I'd make jokes about how that would be death by murder, but she never seemed to be get it.
    Telling a barkeep that I wanted a gin and tonic, and getting increasingly frustrated that it tasted like shit. Demanded she make it in front of me the 3rd time. Turns out she was using selzter.

    I used to think cabbage and lettuce were the same thing. That home made salad had some of the worst aftermath ever.

      >lettuce and cabbage
      I remember also not being fully aware of the difference. I would always call lettuce just "salad," and would think it was just another variety of cabbage.

    My dad is half American and when I was 9, packed us up to move to the US. I was out with him running errands and saw an advert for sundaes and asked for one. He said it's Thursday and they can't sell them except for in Sundays. Not speaking English well enough at the time and not knowing much about American culture yet, I just accepted this as fact for far longer than I should have.

    Before I had seen oysters served in the shell I thought they were fish testicles and that's where the legend about them being a food for sex came from.

    Sort of on topic: I took a foods/cooking class in high school. Teacher was great; learned a lot. Anyway, one day she was talking about various diets. Introduced vegan, but pronounced it with the first syllable the same as vegetable. Veg-an. Said that for about a decade, sounding like a moron, until someone corrected me.

    Thanks for reading my blog post.
