Writing that headline felt weird; “People Are Putting Nintendo Switch Cartridges in their Mouths.” One has to wonder why would anyone do that? Well, people are trying it out probably to taste the nostalgia of blowing into the NES cartridges to make them work.
I remember new NES cartridges had a very pleasant smell and they weren’t made of cheap plastic. Sadly that can not be sad for Nintendo Switch cartridges. They have a horrible taste so kids would learn their lesson after getting it anywhere near their mouths.
I put that Switch cart in my mouth and I'm not sure what those things are made of but I can still taste it. Do not try this at home.

Okay, so, turns out Nintendo Switch cartridges taste awful so kids won't eat them. I, uh, just licked one and can confirm: TASTES BAD MAN.

And this one makes a valid point.
Do… do gamers know that Nintendo Switch games aren't food? I'm sure toilet seats taste bad, too.

It is not recommended that you get that thing anywhere near your mouth. We don’t know what materials are used to develop and it why it tastes so bad. Be careful and Do NOT Try This At Home.
