Nintendo Switch cartridges taste gross but that’s normal

So, first Nintendo Switch users are reporting that the taste of cartridges if funky...

Ok, looks like licking your Nintendo Switch cartridges is a thing. Although everyone thought that all the players that got their hands on the new system might be binge gaming, some of them have the funky idea of putting those little pieces of plastic in their mouth. And you know the most funny part? That’s because Nintendo coated the cartridges with a repulsive agent to avoid kids ingesting them.

This weird habit originated on a Reddit forum (where else…), from Giant Bomb’s Jeff Gerstmann who got the idea to taste test the cartridge. At his disgusting surprise, it tasted awful. And since there must be some internet beauty in there, more people started to try it, and regret it.

Nintendo gave an official word on why the cartridges taste so terrible. Lesson of the day, don’t try this at home.

“A bittering agent (Denatonium Benzoate) has also been applied to the game card,” – Nintendo
