Valentine’s Day, Chocolate & Toothpaste

Looking for the perfect gift for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? You could go with the traditional heart shaped box of chocolates or you could try something even sweeter —- toothpaste.

The new Mint Chocolate Trek flavor is part of the new line called Crest Be, toothpastes meant to excite and inspire while still providing all the standard oral-hygiene benefits. The other two flavors in the line so far- Lime Spearmint Zest and Vanilla Mint Spark.

Crest hopes these new exciting flavors will arouse your senses and energize your brushing routine like never before! This new line of toothpaste hit the shelves locally last week.

So, if your looking for a last minute gift for your special Valentine, forget the heart shaped box of candy, don’t rush to the jewelry store. Instead give the gift of healthy teeth!

Happy Valentines Day!

* Just a word of caution to parents. These new toothpastes contain the same amount of fluoride as regular products but the enhanced flavor may encourage young children to swallow more of the toothpaste than desired. While finding a flavor your child will brush with is important, a flavor that they don’t particularly love will discourage them from swallowing a lot of the paste. Always use a pea size amount and monitor your young child’s brushing to limit the amount of paste they are swallowing. If you have questions, always consult with your dentist.

Mint Chocolate Trek is one of the new bold flavors Procter & Gamble is unveiling as part of its Crest Be line of toothpaste. The new flavors will be on shelves the first week of February.
