OK then who’s up for some cola flavoured toothpaste?
I did wonder if the world has gone mad when I saw this:
No, not the apple flavour – we all know that apples are good for your teeth (well kind of), I mean the cola flavoured toothpaste. I tried it, it is really, really sweet and kind of sparkly which may be my jet lagged eyes but may also mean that this leaves your teeth with a shining disco glimmer. Just what the dentist ordered.
For me this one small every-day item epitomizes the ‘Rise of the Dragon‘ (if you are into economics then I can recommend this eye opener of a book).
I find it ironic that many of the parents of the kids that this product targets would have been born in ‘Red’ China (Mao was in power until 1976) and there was no way they would have been brushing, drinking or even dreaming about cola in their childhoods and that’s saying nothing of the irony of linking cola to clean teeth:
I guess it takes all sorts and if this helps one little girl or boy to start a life-long healthy habit of teeth cleaning then all may be forgiven but I’d be making sure I hid the tube just in case the kiddie winks took a shine to that cola-in-a-tube delight and sucked it dry because this little baby certainly aint for eating.
