Chocolate toothpaste: Crest unveils new lime, vanilla, and chocolate toothpaste

Chocolate toothpaste seems a bit odd, especially because chocolate is one of those things that dentists say gives you cavities. On Jan. 28, MSN News reported that Proctor and Gamble have thought long and hard about this theory -- and they've come up with the best of both worlds. They have come up with new flavors of toothpaste that might encourage people to brush their teeth more often.

"The line, which P&G promises to start selling soon, comprises three flavors: 'Mint Chocolate Trek,' 'Lime Spearmint Zest' and 'Vanilla Mint Spark,'" MSN reports. Curiosity might do a number on initial sales -- a lot of people will pick up a tube just to see what it tastes like.

If the chocolate toothpaste is good, people will likely keep buying it. Face it, wouldn't you rather put chocolate in your mouth than plain old mint? That sounds good... but what about first thing in the morning? And can you imagine just how terrible your orange juice will taste after a "Mint Chocolate Trek" brushing? So, the flavor might not be for everyone -- but Crest is certainly thinking outside of the box on this one.

"It's a whole new world of deliciousness for toothbrushes everywhere," says Crest as part of their new ad campaign. It definitely sounds interesting, doesn't it?

Will you try chocolate toothpaste? What about the other flavors?
