Jelly beans could cause a tongue of many colors, including green and black.  Mouthwash can cause a colored tongue.  Antibiotics can cause black tongue. Peptobismol or kaopectate can cause black tongue.

Its also depends on chocolate color. 

We care Healthcare.

If you detect a foul odor emanating from your mouth, and your tongue is in severe pain, then you could have an infection.  If a part has turned black then you have suffered a blood clot and part of the tongue has suffered necrosis (dead tissue). 

If so, make an appointment with your General Practitioner and request a consult with EENT. 

Have you checked your medical benefits since Obamacare?

Did you have a stud put through your tongue?  That could cause infection or blood clots.
