Make Sure to Buy Some Tums
Miracle Berry
Citation:   [cali-oenophile]. "Make Sure to Buy Some Tums: An Experience with Miracle Berry (exp83569)". Aug 29, 2011.

1 tablet buccal Miracle Berry
Pill: at first tastes a bit sour, then more like a walnut. Not a super strong taste. No noticeable change in color of tongue or urine.

Ok it's been a few minutes now and it hasn't fully dissolved yet. I'm taking this opportunity to look up miracle fruit on Wikipedia.

Ok its been like 10 minutes. I hope the patience pays off.

Ok done

Orange: I'm picking this first because it's the least strong in terms of sourness and I don't want to mess up my taste buds for later. Kinda like how you start wine tasting with a white. Although it would be cool to jump straight to hot sauce and see how great it is, but I don't want to climax prematurely here.

Ok the orange tastes more or less the same, but just really really good. Like almost artificially good like an orange fruit snack. If I didn't have more to taste I'd eat this whole orange (and I just had dinner so I'm not hungry). The aftertaste is just of orange. That was yummy. Time to move on.

Lime: Ok I'm laughing hysterically now. I am a believer. Before I tasted it the juice got into a little crack in my lip and burnt and I thought, uh oh this is gonna be bad. Its burning bad so I know this is a normal lime. It tastes amazing though. Again, like a fruit snack. I'm giggling.

Lemon: I just ate the whole thing. My stomach burns haha. Wikipedia said it doesn't change the chemistry of the food, so the acid is still there. I'm also burping and I never burp.

Onion: Ok time for the big guns. Wow my stomach burnssssss. Ok it smells like onion, but it has no taste. It's like unflavored yogurt. So definitely a remarkable change, but it's not sweet like the other things have been. I would suggest this for when you are going to eat somewhere and you know it's going to be bad.

Sugar Cube: Not much flavor. Could have been overpowered by the onion. Should have eaten that first but I forgot. I'm licking the lemon juice off my lips and its yummy.

Jose Cuervo Especial: I don't really like tequila. It tastes different. I still don't like it. It tastes more earthy, wooden, or maybe fried chicken.

70 something % dark chocolate: tastes the same. Maybe it's wearing off. Nope it's not I just went back to the lime and it still tastes like getting a paycheck.

Peri-peri African pepper sauce: not much change. Maybe a little less spicy.

E&J Very Special Old Pale Superior Reserve (Sounds fancy but it was $8 and came with a flask!): I don't drink enough brandy to know what this is supposed to taste like normally. I can say for sure that this is better than the tequila was.

Water: no change

Honey: no change

What little lemon is left still tastes about 75% as good as before, so that's a good way to make sure it hasn't worn off.

Uggggghhh stomach ache.

When it comes to super acidic things, just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Stop after of a lemon or something.
