Chocolate Toothpaste: Have Dessert, Brush, and Have Dessert Again

Theodent Chocolate Toothpaste

 

Remember how you wished that chocolate-flavored toothpaste existed back when you were still a kid? Well, you might have grown several feet since then but now Theodent has made that wish come true with their new line of fluoride-free, chocolate-flavored toothpaste. This probably isn’t the first time someone decided to make toothpaste that made it seem like you were brushing chocolate all over your teeth, but Theodent is different in the sense that the chocolate flavor isn’t there just for novelty’s sake.

Rather, it’s there because of Theodent’s toothpaste formulation that contains a patented substance obtained from the cacao plant that gives it its distinctive chocolatey flavor. It’s called rennou, and it’s non-toxic and safe-to-ingest (although you probably shouldn’t squeeze it and eat it right out of the tube), so you won’t have to worry about kids accidentally ingesting it while brushing.

Theodent Classic is sold at $10, while the extra-strength variant Theodent 300 is priced at a whopping $100.

Origami-Based Concept Toothpaste Tube Looks Cool, Doesn’t Seem Practical

Believe it or not, there’s an entire segment of society that obsesses over the optimal mechanics of toothpaste tube emptying. It’s generally accepted that rolling up the tube from below is good, but squeezing it in the middle haphazardly not so much. But design student Nicole Pannuzzo’s idea is interesting, if not seemingly practical. It’s inspired by the art of origami and is said to collapse smoothly and elegantly. It does also look look sort of cool for a toothpaste tube. But alas it’s also over-engineered and will likely leave a good amount of paste even when it’s fully collapsed. And no, there are no plans to make this commercially available but good on Nicole for displaying some creativity.

Nihilist Toothpaste: No Flavor, No Color, Nothing–Just Paste

Nihilist Toothpaste

Toothpaste is available in all sorts of flavors, colors, and varieties these days. Heck, they’re not just limited to paste, either, because liquid and gel toothpastes exist now. However, if you’re not a fan of blue, green, or tri-colored toothpastes that sometimes comes with flecks of “cooling crystals” or whitening strips, then you might want to check out Accoutrements’ Nihilist toothpaste.

It’s toothpaste the way toothpaste should be. It’s got no flavor, no color, no thing–just plain old white paste in minimalist packaging.
