Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.


Since losing my default toothpaste of Biotene to the evil of sodium saccharin, I’ve had a hard time finding toothpaste to buy. Tom’s of Maine is always a safe choice, but I really prefer the gel formulations because they have a stronger flavor. Unfortunately, the gel formulations are hard to find.

Yesterday, I found some Tom’s gel toothpaste at the grocery store. I was so excited, I got three tubes. I’ll have toothpaste for months before I have to buy again!

The flavor of Sweet Mint sort of reminds me of white Tic Tacs.

    Nice. I would tease you about your love of toothpaste flavor, except that I recently got a new kind of Crest that I don’t care for. Luckily, I’ve been using it long enough it’s become the ‘normal’ flavor. Thank you, dull taste buds.

    I’m not sure I’d use the one that’s advertsing cavity protection. Do you really want any cavities you might get to be protected?

    (And I too have recently tried a new toothpaste from Cologate & I’ll be glad when it’s gone. It is waaaay too thick. But the taste is fine.)

    For me, it’s gotta be Aquafresh. The stand-up tube dispenses with one measured “squirt”, and the taste has been ‘right on’ for me for years. Try it–you’ll like it!
