What flavor is your toothpaste?

Right now my toothpaste is fruity tooty bubble gum Dora the Explorer toothpaste, cause we are all out of big people toothpaste and only have kid toothpaste. Must be grocery day again! But most times, it's simply peppermint flavor. One time, I brushed with vanilla flavored toothpaste and felt as if I'd just had dessert so I had to brush my teeth all over again! What flavor of toothpaste do you like best?

Mine is the taste of bleach and water since that is what I clean my dentures with The girls use toothpaste that is minty. I pray my teenager never discovers the toothpastes that you described, she'd probably eat it LOL

I have a confession! When I was a preteen I would eat toothpaste too. I was very VERY hungry all the time. Later I grew out of it.

I have never cared much for the taste of toothpaste. Maybe that is why I got them dentures?

I have mint toothpaste right now. It is Colgate Total. I have tried a Vanilla Mint flavor that my sister had once. The kids have Spongebob bubble gum flavor. It is so nasty but they like it!

What is it with kids and their toothpaste, right? They have to have their own or at least that is what they tell us moms. But it taste really bad sometimes! Why don't they get this?

I am not sure. It is some kind of mint I know that. I got cheap the last time I bought toothpaste and bought a tube of Aim toothpaste because it was only a buck. My son has some cinnamon flavored stuff in one bathroom and some fruity spongebob junk in another bathroom. I don't like the fruity or bubble gum flavored stuff.

It's the kid's toothpaste! It's either use that or water and at this point,my teeth can't afford just water.

I guess it's really time for you to go to the grocery. We only use one toothpaste here, even with my kids. We always use peppermint flavor.

Hey Hey Beauty Queen I always have to switch up my toothpaste . I do peppermint , spearmint , vanilla, tropical , and cinnamon . There was only one kind of paste I didnt like and it was an orange kinda that tasted like medicine. Right now we have colgate cinna mint , and its not bad . I like all my paste to have a whitening to it and I think most do . That bubble gum is sounding really good now !!

That is comical! I cannot stand the taste of kids toothpaste. I use Crest Pro-Health-- I made the mistake of picking up Cinnamon the last time- So I have 4 tubes of it- I like the regular kind. It tastes like the tooth paste from the dentist but I know it's working.

No I don't really prefer kid's toothpaste either. But I held out waiting for the good kind and ended up using her toothpaste. But it does help her. When she sees me using her toothpaste she wants to brush her teeth too. Usually it's a struggle, but not so much this past week. I might be setting a trend! She does what Mommy does! I won't argue with that! Thanks for your post.

What a great way to get her to brush her teeth also. No more struggle- I have done this as well- My daughter is 11 now- so I don't need to make her anymore She just does it! Whatever works right!

Wow! You're about to hit the teen years with your daughter. Mine is just four years old. So she is still learning lots of the basics. By the time she's 11, my daughter will be running the world. That's the plan anyway. I've told her, college first! Then world domination.

i think it's just a plain non descript taste. i miss the old "gleem" toothpaste,i don't know if it's still made,i haven't seen it. they had a cinnamon with "sparkles" that was just awesome.

I have never been a fan of many things that are mint flavored, soooo, I have not liked toothpaste for most of my life, though I did get used to it. Lately though I have been trying other flavors. I did lemon not too long ago, and that was really good. The last flavor before the current one that I am using is was a vanilla-mint, that was actually pretty good. Reminded me of a a mint Tic Tac. Currently I have an orange flavored toothpaste, the last one was alos. Pretty tasty.

The kind that I have right now is Crest Whitening with Scope Citrus Splash. It tastes like orange to me. Back in the halcyon days of my youth, I recall a chocolate flavored toothpaste. It didn't really make it though. I remember it not tasting very much like chocolate, or even very good.

I am sorry, But that would just make me gag. The kids love their fruity flavored toothpaste. I have my fresh mint.

I usually always use mint flavoured too beauty - my daughter even prefers that to strawberry which she used to love! I remember years ago I use to get a cinnamon flavour toothpaste and it certainly freshened up my mouth! xxx

Crest would get a lot more female customers if they made "Cinnamon Bun" or "Chocolate Bar" flavor. I would buy it!

beautyqueen 26 hi oh I think I would like fruity tooty bubble gum flavored toothpaste, guess I am a big kid at heart lol I usually use crest in a mint flavor which is not too bad, I tried the vanilla and thought it was sort of odd so went back to spearmint which is really a bit bitey but it does clean my teeth. lol.

It's not the worst stuff in the world. But we did get the Sponge bob toothpaste once and that had a weird flavor. Not sure why. Just didn't taste right. The Dora toothpaste is more palatable. And my daughter loves it, so I'm going to keep buying it! Thanks for your post! Always nice to talk to you.

Not what I have now. i have a baking soda natural type toothpaste from Trader Joe. It tastes too much like baking soda. I dont know why I bought it. Never again. I'm used to that faky sweet toothpasty taste of something like colgate. THe last toothpaste I had before this got sticky blue gel all over the sink. I think it was Aim.

I misread your post and thought you said, "Blue Glue!" Honestly, it's the truth. That blue glue gel gets everywhere. It sticks onto everything.

I prefer peppermint or cinnamon...can't really stand the taste of spearmint or any other fruity kinds. I like the Crest Whitening Expressions or the ones with Scope in it. Those are nice, but once again...no spearmint!

My spouse is the one that buys the toothpaste so it's kind of dealer's choice on that one. He picks the flavor.

Mmm. yea, i like the Naturals toothpaste in Vanilla Mint flavor. I use my childrens toothpaste too, I use it after meals because adult toothpaste drys my mouth out and using more than twice a day i can only imagine, so just for quick brushes i use the kids because it doesnt sting, i am all out of yummu vanilla mint and using aquafresh the micro bubble kind.

Yes, the adult variety wreaks havoc on the skin inside my mouth. Can't explain it.

My toothpaste is Crest Cinnamon Rush flavored. I like the cinnamon taste,but I won't eat it. I don't like to eat it. I also like the spearmint flavored toothpastes. I don't care for peppermint.

Right now we are using Aqua-Fresh. Those kid pastes are too sweet. We don't even buy them for our daughter. It must be awful for you. Ick.
• United States

It's very sweet. Mostly I think my daughter uses the toothpaste cause Dora is on the tube. We tried to get her to use regular toothpaste but she wouldn't brush for three days. We caved and bought her fave. Small sacrifice. If she were older,she'd have regular toothpaste like us. But right now, she can get unreasonable over such tiny things. Not worth arguing with her about it.
