    This might seem like an odd question... please stay with me as I try to explain.
    I ordered a "mystery box" of e-juice bottles (Mt Baker) just to try different flavors (all they had left for this offer was 0 mg nic... but it was only$4) There are two reasons I did this... just to get an idea if I even like certain flavors and because I also do DIY so can add my own nic if needed) That's not my question (hang in there) Some people want to know how a new flavor juice tastes so they just put a drop on their hand a lick it (a quick way to get an idea of the flavor) Doing this with juices that have high nic can be bitter (not an issue this time... 0 mg nic) I may be doing this with up to 30 flavors (all in one sitting) So far so good... but I have heard VG is a laxative (normally used as a suppository) I'm only going to taste a couple drops of each flavor as a quick test... is this even an issue? Also, I was wondering if I could use these juices (flavors) with foods (like coffee/tea) I searched the net and can't find any info about how much VG would cause "the runs". This is all for fun (and learning) Here's an article about consuming VG... any suggestions?
    Is Glycerin a Healthy Sweetener?
    I guess my answer may be something like "live and learn" LOL I know it won't hurt me but might choose to do this over several days. Maybe I will just get a good "clean out" ;)

    I taste juice all the time with no ill effects. One drop on the finger to taste tells me, along with the smell of the juice, if I’ll like it or not.

    You already "drink" quite a bit of VG. The stuff coating your mouth and sinuses? It mixes with saliva and heads straight for your stomach.

    When flying I have been known to place a drop or two of E Liquid on my tongue if the flight were delayed, and touch wood, I've never experienced any adverse symptoms.

    Tasting a couple of drops is not an issue. Drinking 30ml of VG may result in a very intimate date with the toilet.

    If taste testing multiple flavours, adopt a cleansing method such as what wine drinkers do. These are concentrated flavours that can and do linger for some time.

    Nothing wrong with adding flavours to food/drink. I’ve done it before. But only a couple of drops are needed.

    Thanks for the responses. I wouldn't have even asked but might be tasting around 30 juices. I'll spread this out over several hours and sip on something between flavors (I have some ginger ale) I'm guessing this will equal about 1 ml total (and part of that will be PG) I'm really hoping most of the juices are 70VG/30PG so I can add my own nic (it's in PG) but many may be 50/50 and I don't like over 35 % PG... might order some nic in VG for those.

    Mt Baker tastes so terrible, just the very thought of vaping it could actually give you the runs. :)

    Well everything can have different affects on everyone and to varying degrees, so if you're worried about sh:censored:in' your guts out, just play it safe and be prepared.

    Make sure you have all your ducks in a row, notify friends and loved ones about what you're about to do and when, so they know what's going on and what could happen to you and what they need to do in case you don't make it out alive.

    Make out a will, just in case.

    Nice chattin' with ya.

    Wish you best of luck.

    I'm sure that tasting juice orally is better than tasting it anally. My gawd, I cant believe I even said that. My mind is very random these days. Sorry. :D

    They are very popular. They've been around for a long time now.

    Some like them some don't. Which is the case with just about every other product, including eliquid brands.

    Me? Never tried it :D

    The truth is, this really wasn't about whether I like this brand or not, it was just a way to experiment with flavors in general (and make choices for DIY flavors) If nothing else, I might end up with some really good tasting coffee and tea LOL.
