The global market for toothpaste is probably not something you’ve given a lot of thought. The largest market currently is in Europe, which is expected to reach $14 billion by 2020. The biggest global market drivers include the rising awareness over the importance of oral hygiene, the rising popularity of whitening toothpaste, and the demand for new and improved products.
What better way to improve toothpaste than to add some fun and weird flavors to it? We live in a culture replete with gag gifts and ironic products. As such, you probably won’t be shocked to learn of the many not-so-serious flavors of toothpaste that may be more akin to a dog’s toothpaste than a human’s. Nonetheless, fun toothpaste flavors are a-plenty and we’ve compiled a short list of some of the strangest ones we could find.
Ever thought you would find a toothpaste that was not kosher? The day has come: Bacon-Flavored Toothpaste. For toothpaste to taste like your favorite breakfast item, you’re going to pay a pretty penny. Prices for this pork-flavored cleaning agent range between $6-$10 per tube on average.
It seems that when it comes to licorice, you either love it or you hate it. This Marvis Amarelli Licorice Mint Toothpaste is rich, creamy, and claims to remove plaque and tartar. Reviews for this product reveal that the licorice is not an overpowering flavor; most say it is a very mild and pleasant flavor.
If you love gargling with pickle brine, then this toothpaste is for you. Did you know that the average American eats 8.5 pounds of pickles per year? It’s no wonder then that this pickle-flavored toothpaste has found its own niche market.
At the end of the day, it’s not the flavor of the toothpaste you use that matters, but that you are consistently brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. You can use cupcake-flavored toothpaste or marmite-flavored toothpaste, as long as you practice good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly, we believe your oral health will be in good shape.
