What do various poisons and toxins taste
like? What flavor is lead, for example, or strychnine? How about common deadly household chemicals like bleach, or organic toxins like mercury/methylmercury?

I saw a Law & Order: SVU
about a child with pica
that ate the lead paint off his father's old toy cars because it tasted like sweet and sour candy. That started me thinking about other dangerous materials. Not planning anything or writing anything, just wondering.
Bonus question: how do people know this information.
