A Find: Flavored Toothpastes
July 12, 2005
Somehow toothpaste and mint just seem to go together. Sure, toothpaste comes in vanilla and citrus flavors now. But Breathe Palette has taken it a step further. The Japan-based company has come up with 32 unconventional flavors like Fresh Yogurt, Sweet Salt, L’Espresso and Rose to “change the way we view oral care â€“ from a daily chore to a daily treat.” There’s something strange but fun about brushing your teeth with a paste that tastes slightly reminiscent of the foods you’re trying to brush away. Although I can’t say it was a treat per se, I did enjoy trying the Fresh Yogurt and Monkey Banana. The Breath Palette Water Kit, Mouthwash To Go kits each include five subtle tasting mini mouthwashes in as many unique flavors. I’d stick these in my purse as palette cleansers, but I won’t be giving up on minty freshness altogether. Get your Breath Palette Toothpaste Kit, East Meets West at drugstore.com.
