7 Strangest Toothpaste Flavors
Mint is the most commonly used flavor for toothpastes, but throughout the world, one can find a whole slew of toothpaste flavors you’d never even thought possible!
1. Curry Flavor
Indo Curry is just one among the 32 toothpaste flavors from a company called Breath Palette, created by Japan’s Margaret Josefin. This toothpaste is made with Xylitol and is alcohol-free. Other flavors include Monkey Banana, Darjeeling Tea and Caramel among others.
2. Charcoal Flavor
Charcle toothpaste is from Korea, and yes, charcoal is its main ingredient. Japan also has its own version of charcoal-flavored toothpastes.
3. Cupcake Flavor
Are you ready to brush your teeth every morning and feel like you’re having a quick snack already? “Brushing your teeth with real frosting kind of defeats the purpose, but with this Cupcake Toothpaste you get all the fabulous flavor of frosting without another root canal!” At least that’s what this cupcake-flavored toothpaste ad says. See it in Amazon.
4. Bacon Flavor
We never thought a person’s breath should mirror his breakfast, but the world is surely changing. Accoutrements Mr. Bacon's toothpaste will leave your breath smelling all so meaty and bacon fresh. Would you give it a try?
5. Chocolate Flavor
This 2005 limited edition chocolate flavored toothpaste under the name 'Closeup Flavalicious’ is from Unilever Philippines. Strange as it may seem, a research showed that cocoa powder extract helps harden teeth enamel, making users less susceptible to tooth decay.
6. Eggplant Flavor
This toothpaste containing eggplant with Apatite & Xylitol has been widely sold in Japan for a long time. Its product information says “Black baked eggplant was believed especially good for cavity and gum disease.”
7. Fennel Flavor
When braised, fennel is a perfect match for roast beef or chicken. But when used with your toothbrush (with xylitol and other ingredients), this fennel-flavored toothpaste can actually give you a naturally clean, healthy mouth feeling.
And the list goes on and on. Would you be willing to tuck away your mint toothpastes and give any one of these a try?
