Ice Cream Flavored Toothpaste
I took my boys to the dentist on Monday. Before the dentist cleaned each child's teeth, he asked what flavor he liked. My oldest got his teeth cleaned with bubble gum flavored toothpaste. My youngest got his teeth cleaned with marshmallow flavored toothpaste. This experience left me wondering why there weren't more flavored toothpastes being sold. We've seen bubble gum flavored toothpaste at the stores before but never marshmallow.
So, I'm walking out of the dentist office and I stop at the desk to make sure that my insurance information is good when I see tubes of weird looking toothpaste on the check out desk. It looks weird because I've never seen this toothpaste in the stores before. I look closer and pick up the first one; it says it vanilla ice cream flavored. Then I picked up the next one; its vanilla and orange ice cream (creamsicle) flavored. My kids tasted it and then smiled ear to ear. Its a big hit so I buy a tube of it and walk out. When I get into the car, I read the tube closely. It contains no saccharin and no sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). I don't know if you know but there is a lot of stuff out there that says SLS is bad for you... its suppose to be a carcinogen among other problems. So the lack of saccharin (which is also bad for you) and SLS is a huge plus in my book.
The toothpaste is called Tanner's Tasty Paste. There are four different flavors:
- Banilla Bling - vanilla ice cream flavor
- BlingSide - vanilla & orange ice cream flavor
- Cha Cha Chocolate - chocolate ice cream flavor
Even if you don't care about the health benefits of buying this product, you should check it out because it tastes good. If it tastes good, it will encourage your child to brush their teeth more. If they brush their teeth more, the less likely it will be that they get cavaties. The less cavaties your child gets, the more money in your pocket.
