I've never been a big mint fan. Spearmint, peppermint, cinnamon, "wintermint," whatever...all those flavours traditionally used for breath mints and toothpast I never really liked. I remember being stupidly happy when Crest came out with orange flavoured toothpaste, and I was even more giddy when I found lemon toothpaste at De Witte Tandenwinkel in Amsterdam last year.
But yesterday I discovered the best toothpaste flavour ever: Crest Vanilla Mint. I have no idea what the "mint" part is for; I guess Americans won't trust a toothpast unless it says something about mint on the label. But oh...it's good. I mean, really good.
I like Vanilla Mint, too, but to me, it definitely tastes like mint! Vanilla, too, of course, but also mint
You can get a cinnamon flavour toothpaste? I must keep an eye out for that.
Lush is supposed to have two toothpastes coming out. They've already hit the UK, but not yet here. One is white/vanilla, the other is black/sandlewood.
The Crest orange was different. Like brushing my teeth with a candy orange slice. I like it.
I saw the ads and did the scratch & sniff for the vanilla mint...I wish it would show up on a store shelf near me. I thought maybe they'd decided not to go ahead with it, because I saw another ad saying their "winner" was Lemon Ice.
Right now I use mostly cinnamon toothpaste - I have 3 different "toothbrushing stations", one at work, one at Eilis', one at the house in Oregon...orange does not appeal. I only really like orange flavor as juice. The black sandalwood toothpaste sounds like it would be intriguing to try.
I'm fortunate compared to Koshka in that I like most mints. Wintergreen is my fave. I'll snack absently on wintergreen Tums, when I take a few for the calcium, if not stopped in time.
Australia had eucalyptus toothpaste, which my ex-husband bought. It was revolting. Much the way I imagine brushing with Pine-Sol or strong tar soap would taste.
