In brief: No

Taste buds are not filled with a liquid so that if you puncture them they will "pop".
If there is something on your tongue that does that, it's almost definitely something else. Don't play around popping things in your mouth. You run the risk of infection or worse. See a dentist for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
