    Okay. Pine mouth. Check. That is bizarre. I love pine nuts, so I am glad I don’t get that. I also am certain we were separated at birth. haha.

    YIKES! I never ever knew that was a thing! I don’t think I’ve really had much exposure to pine nuts, but I LOVE pesto (as long as it has no parmesan in it) and what a shame your batch was a waste 🙁

    Been there, had that. It’s awful. Haven’t touched a pine nut since. But I might try it, now that I know what to look for. Thanks for passing along the info!

    When I had it, the tongue scraping method hadn’t been discovered yet. I accidentally found a work-around though. I had made myself a hot cup of ginger tea, trying to kill the taste, but instead I drank it too hot and scalded my tongue. Suddenly, the awful taste went away! So did *every* taste. But I didn’t care. It was a small price to pay for victory. I’d rather taste *nothing* than taste that horrible Ness.

    I can’t recommend that approach since it’s mildly self-destructive, and since tongue scraping seems to work pretty well. But at least it’s available as a last-ditch effort if all else fails.

    I had this about 3 years ago. I reported it to the FDA but they said they couldn’t track its source sine I got it from Winco’s bulk. Groceries tend to put multiple brands in the bins. WinCo blamed it on me that I ate too many. Took 3 weeks for it to go away. Thank you for posting how to get quicker relief. I have been avoiding them ever since.

    Those were the same pine nuts from Trader Joes that gave me pine mouth!

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
