Medicine is not supposed to taste good.

I used to love the liquid bubblegum flavored medicine used to treat ear infections. When the doctor said, "it looks like an ear infection" I would think, "SCORE!" ;)

And TCM herbs taste REALLY bad--or, at least, the ones I had this spring. Nasty beyond belief!

I used to say that peyote was the worst-tasting thing you'd ever put in your mouth and not spit out, but the herbs made me change my mind about that.

You have collectively uncovered the meaning behind the fortune! My acupuncturist, who specializes in herbs, always says "Medicine is not supposed to taste good". The reason? Most medicines are toxic when taken in excess quantities and harmful when taken if they're not needed. All that bubblegum flavoring carries a risk that the child will seek out the bottle and drink it.
