So I was recently introduced to the wonderful world of flavored toothpaste (by recently, I mean within the last 3 years). I was using Cinnamon Crest 2 in 1 stuff, and really liked it. The reason I was so pleased, was that I’ve never liked mint, so I had never experienced brushing my teeth without a nasty taste in my mouth.

Well eventually, in accordance with the second law of thermodynamics, the law of conservation of mass and energy, and of course the atiobatic rate (which sometimes enters into it, they tell me), I ran out of toothpaste. So of course I had to buy more. Since I am always interested in trying new things, I decided to check out another brand. I bought Colegate Cinnamint. Apparently, they’re really serious about that “mint” part. And now I’m stuck with a whole tube of nastiness.

Some time later, I was walking through some store and decided to look at Colegate’s other flavors. Here’s what I found: Colegate sells an assortment of flavored toothpastes, but they all are based on a mint taste! Would someone please explain to me the point of offering a bunch of different flavors that all taste the same? What about those of us who don’t like mint? Do the people at Colegate care about us? I would argue that “No, indeed they do not.”

So goodbye, Colegate… you are officially banished from my heart. Please do not come crawling back, trying to seduce me… I know your evil ways, and will not again fall in to your wretched trap. Goodbye… forever.

Ps. I changed the locks, so don’t even think about it.

    You have 24 days to change your mind about mint toothpaste, and switch your locks back. She’ll probably thank you for it. 😉
