    Should MDMA taste bitter? Should it numb the tongue and mouth? Thanks for your help.

    Yes it should taste bitter, but I am not sure if it should numb the tongue. Maybe a bit but definitely not to the extent of cocaine. SWIM always licks his pills before taking them and they always taste bitter, but SWIM has never experienced a numbing of the tongue. He could be wrong so more opinions will be needed on this. Does your friend have a pill or molly? Just because a pill tastes bitter doesnt mean it is MDMA so you might wanna test the pill.

    Sometimes coke. Sometimes ephedrin, sometimes meth... They can be cut with a lot of different uppers. Coke and meth are definitely tongue numbing

    Yea SWIM agrees, it tastes very bad. SWIM has watched people chew the tabs up and take them like that but thats a no no no no for SWIM. SWIM would much rather plug it that chew it, or parachute it or something.

    Black Licorice taste to pills of ?mdma?

    Swim and buddies all took supposed pills of mdma today and at first noticed that the pills slightly smelled and considerably tasted like black licorice everyone thought the same. Swim thought they were decent pills seemed mostly mental high not really much body effect but still quite alright for E.

    Now swim is wondering if there is some possible explanation for this he means is this some known chemical that tastes like licorice some anolouge, or just somehow a total coincidence. Has any swiy's ever had an experiance similar to this and have any ideas.

    Pure MDMA does smell quite a bit like licorice, but it doesn't taste like it. It tastes like crap. Very bitter.

    Now do you mean black or red licorice I mean swim thought it smelled like Black licorice and decently tasted so but could have been smell coincidence but couldn't be pure to what he thinks it was in a spoty green pill with some other color spots inside it when he cut one up to take a look. So thanks but more answers from other could be nice thanks alot though he still feels emotional te he.

    Re: Black Licorice taste to pills of ?mdma?

    Well i'd describe it of a kind of aniceedy smell which SWIM normally finds when he opens up a dusty bag of pills. It never tastes like liquorice or nice at all, it's probably the nastiest tasting thing he's ever had.

    Re: Black Licorice taste to pills of ?mdma?

    Swim has come upon a new fact that sounds possible somehow. While browsing wikipedia he happened upon the fact that PMA is sythyisized from something called anethole, the flavor compound in anise and fennel, which has a predominant taste of licorice. The problem with this one is that supposedly it has the taste sweeter than sugar and somewhat pleasent, now swim and pals think it tasted like ass. Wow swim had a damn interesting mystery pill there he hopes it wasnt like PMA or something or some really weird shit.

    hi folks, i'm new here but not new to the scene.
    Over the last 16 years SWIM has had all shapes and sizes and would regularly chew instead of swallow. Many a time he would taste liquorice off the E's. Each time he would have the same type of buzz, which he and his friends all thought was the same buzz as K. Maybe there wrong.
    thanks

    Re: Black Licorice taste to pills of ?mdma?

    Fnord provided a simple explanation, the main precursor for most large scale MDMA production, safrole, and similar compounds like some fennel and anise oil components smell and taste like liquorice. If some is still present in the final product it's smell and taste can be quite obvious. I have never heard of MDMA smelling like licorice but no one has never actually put his nose up to and and taken a big whiff. Anything more is pure speculation, it could have been powdered licorice, MDMA, safrole, or pig dandruff in the pills. There is no way to tell without a testing kit and/or expensive analysis.
