It seems like I find a new tea product about every month, and this month it's Crest's Mint and Green Tea Extract toothpaste. It was on sale for $2 at Publix, and it actually tastes good!
Now I'm normally a Colgate girl, Total with Whitening, to be exact, but these days I sometimes go with what's on sale. So I was scanning the grocery store price tags and saw this new flavor. I was a little wary, because I once found some newfangled, flavored-up Colgate at the dollar store, and though I don't remember the flavor, I do remember that I nearly gagged on it. I've avoided offbeat toothpastes ever since. Toothpaste really, really ought to taste like ... toothpaste.
It's interesting that Crest chose to depict a mortar and pestle with tea leaves on the packaging. Why not a teacup? I guess they were trying for a medicinal/health approach. Whatever their reason, I am quite pleased with the new toothpaste. (Don't worry, Colgate. You know I always come back!)
