Does pinching your nose stop you from tasting?


When you pinch your nose, can you still taste whatever is in your mouth?

I can still taste it but it tastes differently. It's not just a slight taste as much as a slightly different taste. It could help to make something offensive easier to accept but it is only a matter of degree. I'd never do it in public but I have done it with liquid medicines as an adult.

When I feel a cold coming on, I take a tablespoon of the most HORRID tasting herbal mixture in a bit of water. I hold my nose, gulp bravely, and keep holding my nose closed until I can drink some plain water and eat a cracker. The taste sensation will return immediately after I let go of my nose. It really helps...and so does the herbal mix! (Anti-Plague)
