bad taste after chocolate??

This may be a very stupid question, but... I eat chocolate a lot... (love it), and every time I eat it, I am left with a bad taste in my mouth. I have gotten used to it, so I didn't really think much about it, but now I wonder... what causes that? Is it normal?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
In some people chocolates are known to leave a bitter or metallic taste in mouth, especially the dark brown variants. This is an abnormal perception of taste that lingers in mouth.
Have citrus juices, lemonade and foods marinated in vinegar. They help in washing away the metallic taste by producing more saliva. Brush your teeth and your tongue with a tongue cleaner at least twice in a day and surely at bedtime. It will help in lessening the metallic taste. Vit C tablets, over the counter oral mouthwashes will help fight the taste. Increase fibers in the diet. Eat fresh things like apples that are crunchy or rough things like popcorn scrapes the white debris off the tongue.
If you follow these tips, the bad taste that is left in the mouth after eating chocolates will slowly go away.
Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
