Just ordered oranges on Amazon Fresh. I need that Jamaican remedy with the burnt orange to work.

A user Twitted after watching the clip.

I just tried the burnt orange and brown sugar thing from TikTok to get [your] taste back after Covid and it didn’t work.

So, does it work?

A simple answer to this is no, as there’s no scientific evidence to confirm that the recipe works and Pamela Dalton, a researcher at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, said that people might have already regained their sense of smell and taste without realising.

People often don’t know how much smell they lost, so if they do something that’s really intense, like burning an orange peel, that will give you an extraordinary sensation, you may have already had an ability, but you’ve essentially shocked your system into smelling something strong.
