We here at For Elyse love chocolate. But we did a double take when we saw a recent advertisement for mint CHOCOLATE toothpaste. Despite our undeniable sweet tooth, we weren't exactly salivating at the idea of chocolate toothpaste.
According to John Sarchilli, head of Scientific Communications for Proctor & Gamble, Crest's parent company, the inspiration behind their new line came from customers who expressed boredom at seeing only mint flavors in the toothpaste aisle. Crest's new line features other odd flavors like Lime Spearmint Zest and Vanilla Mint Spark.
We'll reserve judgment until we actually try it, but our first reaction is definitely not an enthusiastic one. What do you think, readers? Would you brush your teeth with chocolate mint toothpaste?
