    Hello all, i wanted to share with you a trick that I use to get rid of Vape Tongue. Best part of the trick, its food! I grew up eating snacks from the ice cream trucks that roamed the streets of my old neighborhood, Pepinos con chile y limon. It is a spicy snack that incorporates capaicum and acids that both kill off dead taste buds and invigorate the tired ones.
    Here is a simple recipe that I use, you can change up the amounts used to your desired taste.

    1 to 2 ripe cucumbers, skinned and cut into medallions then quartered.
    place cucumber in a bowl.
    Juice one small lime into the bowl with the cucumber.
    Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chili powder onto the cucumbers.
    Sprinkle 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of salt onto the cucumbers.
    add 1 to 2 teaspoons of Tapatio hot sauce. (you can use other brands if desired, but Tapatio is traditional)
    Mix contents until fully coated.

    These are perfect for the summer as a snack, and the acids and the capaicum will clean that pallet in no time.
    I find that once the Vape Tongue shows up, i pop a bowl of the pepinos together, and boom bada bing, Much better. Hope you all enjoy the snack, and let me know how it works for you.

    best part of getting of the Analogs....no more ashtray mouth lol. Vape Tongue happens when your chain tootin a flavor to much or to often, not always and not to all. There are a few theories as to why or how it happens Not a science that has been pinpointed just yet. The affects of Vape tongue, you loose taste function on part or all of your tongue...can be pretty harsh on those who are still learning to vape to get away from the analogs, the flavor helps keep the new vaper satisfied with vaping. Flavor goes away, they can panic and rush to a liquor store for stogies. There are lots of different ideas on how to get rid of it, none proven to be fully accurate however. Everyone will probably get vape tongue once or twice, its not permanent, taste buds grow back in ten to twenty days when they are damaged. I got vape tongue after getting an eJuice on my tongue, I've also gotten it from tootin on custard cake flavors all day. When I get it, I just eat spicy food and drink acidic drinks, gargle with a little baking powder and soda water, switch my vape flavor and slow down on the vaping. Few days later Im back to normal...then back to my custard cake flavor all day hehehehehe.

    I've started making up my juice 100 mls at a time, but Im going to have 4-5 Kayfuns all loaded differently so that wont happen.
    However.. I am very fond of blueberry and blackberry. Those are 2 that I could easily go to excess on. lol

    I vape a variety of flavors in hopes to keep VT at bay. I just do my best to stay hydrated, including nasal passage. I drink lots of water and if super dried out feeling, I use Ocean Nasal Spray. Seems to do the trick every time for me. I seriously like your recipe, though, and will have to try that! Thanks, Celtic :)

    Subtract all the salt and I'm in. Sounds tasty. I'm a nutrition freak, and I eat cucumber all the time. I'm gonna have to try this regardless of vape tongue. Thanks!

    My vape tongue protocol, assuming vape tongue is fatigue of taste receptors, complicated by dehydration of olfactory/taste/respiration system (whether or not that's true, I'm not 100%):
    • Fresh wick with unflavored nic base until it the vg/pg plain tastes "defined"
    • And a glass of water
    For me, if I got vape tongue and kept vaping the same flavor anyway, it would take longer for taste to come back completely (like a day or 2 at worst). In the last two months I've been changing it up (as above) when I think I might be getting vape tongue. "Early detection" helps recovery I think, as it hasn't gotten annoying as it used to for me.

    I wanna try the snack, looks goooood!

    Speaking about Tongue! Just interesting reading

    Cymothoa exigua or the Tongue eating louse is a parasitic crustacean. It tends to be 3 to 4 cm long. This parasite attaches itself at the base of the spotted rose snapper's tongue, entering the fish's mouth through its gills. It then proceeds to extract blood through the claws on its front three pairs of legs. As the parasite grows, less and less blood reaches the tongue, and eventually the organ atrophies from lack of blood. The parasite then replaces the fish's tongue by attaching its own body to the muscles of the tongue stub. The fish is able to use the parasite just like a normal tongue. It appears that the parasite does not cause any other damage to the host fish.
    This is the only known case of a parasite functionally replacing a host organ.

    Well, it seems a little extreme, but if that doesn't cure Vaper's Tongue, I don't know what else to try! :D

    I get vape tongue like once a week and I switch flavors once or twice a day. I believe this is worth a try

    I used to get vape tongue all the time, until I started carrying 4 different flavors and switching regularly between them. It works for me and I haven't had vape tongue in over 18 months ... Although my pockets are always full with 4 mods, 4 tanks, spare batteries, etc. ...

    I've found that about 2 or 3 days is the most I can vape a single mix. I to have switch keep 3 or 4 mixes on hand. 3 tanks and 2 mods dreaming of the day I have 4 of each. I'll have to get my wife to make me this dish!

    Tip of the day: an old crown royal bag makes an excellent vaper tote bag :)
