What is the Mandela effect? And have you experienced it?

Nobody’s memory is perfect. For instance, do you think that Stouffer’s Stove Top Stuffing existed? Or that there was a children’s book series called “The Berenstein Bears?”

In reality, neither of these references are spot-on. Stouffer’s never made a stove top stuffing, and the books are actually known as “The Berenstain Bears.” But if you got these details wrong, don’t feel too bad – a 2020 memory study in the journal Psychological Science found that, when asked to recall information, 76% of adults made at least one detectable error.
