Toothpaste. Not the most interesting beauty or health product but an essential which we use daily (or at least I hope you all use daily!)
I’ve never given what toothpaste I use much thought to be honest. They’re all pretty much the same, minty thing, aren’t they.
Well, you can imagine both my delight and my horror when I found this on the Spoiled Brat website.
An toothpaste which tastes like cupcakes. An actual, real toothpaste. Which tastes like cupcakes.
On the one hand this goes against everything I think that a toothpaste should be and on the other, It sounds simply edible!
In reality, it is both!
Firstly, let me make this clear. This paste tastes INCREDIBLE. It is sweet and sugary with a yummy hint of vanilla. It is slightly grainy in texture, but this is the only thing about it (and the fact that it is in a toothpaste tube, obviously) that reminds you that this is in fact something that should be used to clean your teeth. Not just something that you should just squeeze into your mouth and devour at will.
Given how much I loved the taste of this to eat, the thought of brushing my teeth with it freaked me out!
It doesn’t froth as much as a regular, minty, non edible paste would, but my teeth still felt clean after using it, though the feeling of sweetness in my mouth rather than fresh mint was a weird sensation!
Annoyingly (although appropriate if this product is used as intended, on your teeth rather than as food) I can’t seem to find any information anywhere on the nutritional content to figure out how many calories are in this paste.
IF it is low calorie I reckon this could be the holy grail of products for dieters missing their sugary treats. It gives you that sugary hit you crave while cleaning your teeth, helping to ease cravings.
I’m not a dentist so I also cant verify if there are are actually any ingredients within it that are good for your teeth, or of this product is intended purely for novelty purposes.
To be honest, I don’t really care.
I think it’s a wonderfully weird present and if you don’t mind, I must go and brush my teeth, again, for the 12th time today. Mnnnnnn.
You can buy this Cupcake Toothpaste at Spoilt Brat and it costs £5.50.
