Minty Fresh...Not

When David lived in Italy, he once bought banana toothpaste. I haven't ever seen banana flavored toothpaste here, but a lot of the other toothpaste flavors seem slightly weird to me. Last time I was shopping, only the really expensive toothpastes were what I considered "normal" flavors, so I bought herbal flavored toothpaste.

It tastes kind of like Vick's Vap-o-Rub but there's a very nice aftertaste of licorice. Being a licorice kind of girl, I really like it. Not everyone else in our family is quite so fond.

Ruth, who is much hipper than I, tells me that really expensive toothpastes in the US, like Tom's, are also herbal flavored. And I discovered that you can buy banana flavored toothpaste in Malaysia too! Does this mean the world is shrinking? And does Tom's herbal toothpaste taste like licorice too?

Tom's herbal toothpaste leaves a "I wish I were dead" taste in your mouth. True Story.
