Before diving in, Teigen warned on her Instagram Stories that anyone who’s squeamish should not keep watching. And full disclosure: Agreed! You’ve been warned. She continued, “I told you I'm eating so much sour candy that my tongue is falling off, and it is.” She then asked, “Would you like to look?”
As she sticks her tongue out in the video–which she does many times throughout–you can clearly see discolored patches on it. “I eat sour straws,” she said. “I suck on them, and then after them I have my Blow Pops.” She even shows what looks like bits of skin from her tongue on her hand to get the full situation across.

She went on to discuss how it’s hard to eat anything hot temperature-wise and especially anything spicy. “I'm trying to eat my noodles, but it's so painful,” she said. "I don't know how to eat it...I think I'll have to put saran wrap on my tongue or something, like a tongue condom of some sort."
Hearing about this, let alone seeing it, definitely makes you cringe! You can, indeed, have too much of a good thing–especially when it comes to sour candy. It's an unfortunate reality that we all must live in, yet we must carry on.
