According to Nintendo, the company made their new bite-sized Nintendo Switch cartridges taste awful on purpose, to prevent kids from putting them in their mouths, which actually makes a lot of sense.
But apparently, adults just can’t help trying the nasty tasting cartridges for themselves. I mean, it’s all part of journalistic integrity, right?
I haven’t actually tried tasting the cartridge myself, but I’m not, not thinking about it.
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.

This news comes in the midst of the Nintendo Switch hype. The new hybrid console, which comes out tomorrow, switches between playing on TV and on the portable device.
