I got a new tube of Biotene, my regular brand of toothpaste. It said “new and improved” on the box. When I took it out, I noticed they changed the cap. It used to be a flip cap, but now it’s a screw-off lid. Dang. When I started brushing my teeth, I tasted the dull metallic flavor of sodium saccharin. Double Dang. I had already thrown the box away, so I couldn’t read it. Since I was in the store yesterday, I checked. Sure enough, there it was:
