Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Hope it tastes better than it looks …

See, this is why organic products made out of natural ingredients suck. This toothpaste looks like baby poo!

I was on the hunt for some toothpaste that didn’t have that ubiquitous mint flavoring. I was thinking licorice for some reason but couldn’t find any that didn’t also have mint mixed in. Plus everything the littlest bit exotic was über expensive. Finally I landed on this stuff — lemon toothpaste made with real lemon essential oil and Redmond clay (?!).

I didn’t dream it would look like baby poo.

As a man of a certain age, I’m not all that up into organic stuff. It’s usually colorless, smelly, coarse when it should be smooth and smooth when it should be a little coarse, and most of all it costs a lot more than the stuff I grew up on.

Yesterday Sue came home with some cinnamon-flavored toothpaste — Close-Up. That’s right. The Lovers’ Toothpaste. From the ’60s.

Now I can safely say that I’ll never buy another tube of lemon-flavored baby poo again.

    Yeah, Close-up. The name says it all. I found it had a numbing effect as well. Couldn’t feel my teeth after brushing.
