Hi! Several months ago I did a poll on Instagram asking if any others had issues with mint flavored toothpastes. Whether it be a taste preference, allergy, causing them to feel nauseous, and anything in between.
I’ve hated mint flavored toothpaste since I was a tiny child. I remember closing the bathroom door, running the water over my toothbrush and splashing water around to make it sound like I was brushing my teeth before going to school. Feeling pretty sorry for those who had to endure that breath… But listen, it made me wanna throw right up. The flavor and scent of mint makes me cringe, even at the thought of it.
Hence why I was a-ok to volunteer myself to test some other options available. Unfortunately there aren’t a ton. But I’ve rounded up five that I’d love to share with you today! These are in no particular order.
Let’s start with Colgate’s Strawberry Smash!Yes, this is intended for the younger crowd, but I pinky swear you that when I asked my dentist if she had any ideas for non-mint toothpastes, she suggested this one. And she also told me she uses it herself. So I felt okay including it here!
Taste: Sweet and artificial strawberry flavored candy-like. (I’m very into this.)
Texture: More gel-like than paste-like!
Convenience factor: Super easy! I bought this at Walmart, and could probably find it at most grocery stores.
How clean does it make my mouth feel: 3/5 stars
I like the flavor, and it doesn’t make me gag. So I give it 4/5 stars!
Here’s a link to Walmart’s listing for two 4.6 oz tubes for $7.32!
