Your Morning Routine Just Got a Little Funkier…

Toothpaste flavorsIs there any toothpaste flavor more monotonous than mint? When you stop to think about it, you’ve brushed your teeth with minty paste nearly every day of your life, (hopefully) at least twice a day. If you find yourself getting bored with your hygiene regimen, maybe it’s time to mix things up with a new toothpaste flavor. Here are a few of the most bizarre and intriguing flavors to keep your teeth healthy and free of cavities and infections.

Mint With a Twist

For those who are not yet ready to part with their minty toothpaste, these mint hybrids are perfect. Marvis, available at, Amazon, and Whole Foods, features unusual flavor combinations such as Aquatic Mint, Amarelli Licorice, Jasmine Mint, and Ginger Mint. The upscale brand also offers more traditional flavors, including a whitening formula, Cinnamon Mint, and Classic Strong Mint. Brush your teeth for at least two minutes at a time, and don’t forget to clean all of your teeth–not just the front or sides.

Foodie-Flavored Toothpastes

What about a dollop of a culinary-inspired toothpaste? Breath Palette, a Japanese brand, sells 32 unusual toothpaste flavors. At one end of the collection, you’ll find relatively tame offerings like green tea, lavender, and dark chocolate. A few of the more offbeat flavors include Indian curry, plum, pumpkin pudding, and honey. Want something even more unusual? Breath Palette also offers these flavors: lightly salted, rose, cola, and fresh yogurt. Find it on Amazon and By the way, cola toothpaste is much better than real soda. Even diet sodas are highly acidic, which can damage your tooth enamel.

Now It Gets Weird

For the truly bizarre, one need only look to the Japanese for inspiration. Perhaps you’d like to brush with a thick, black eggplant toothpaste. We’ve even seen toothpaste flavored with charcoal and pine salt. For a laugh, load up on novelty toothpastes by Accoutrements. Choose from cupcake, pickle, bacon, and scotch flavors.
