I knew it was going to be one of those days when I accidentally chewed a NON-chewable vitamin. I've started taking several vitamins a day and for variety I bought a chewable vitamin C and a chewable multi-vitamin. Apparently one of the non chewables got mixed into my chewables and it tasted like I had licked the underside of a rusty port-o-potty. Not only did the gag reflex kick into full force but my lips, gums, tongue and insides of my cheeks felt like they were being eaten away. I don't know what the heck is in these vitamins but I don't think they are made for human ingestion. I am grateful we don't have taste buds in our stomachs!
