As a result of your illness and treatment you may experience your taste changing.

If you are having radiation you can get dry mouth and if you are having chemotherapy your taste buds can change and things can taste yucky with an awful metallic mouth. Foods that you would normal eat can change in taste affecting the way you enjoy food and could lead to a less nutritious diet. Some foods may taste bland or it all tastes the same. This can cause a loss of appetite and lead to weight loss.

Fruit tingles are the perfect treat to help activate the mouth and assist with any dryness that may have occurred. Our KIT is nearly overflowing but we squeeze a packet of fruit tingles in!  Always keep a pack in your bag.
