The warning signs were obvious at first: all my local pharmacies and supermarkets had all emptied their stock of Crest toothpaste, especially my favourite product: Crest Complete Extra Fresh - at first I wasn't worried because there had been shortages in the past, I remember a few years ago when I had to go with the ever-plain Macleans and even the foul-tasting Colgate.
I haven't been able to find any official source announcing the discontinuation, only second-hand blog postings and product reviews on shopping sites decrying the loss.
Can anyone recommend a different product with similar taste, texture, and cleaning ability?
I was addicted to mentadent way after it was no longer cool to use it. It's a much better toothpaste, but it just seemed wasteful to have to throw away all that plastic when it was empty.
Try Drugstore.com or whatever the UK equivalent might be. You may be able to get it shipped to you from the US (assuming it exists in the US).
Otherwise, you can always just skip toothpaste altogether. It's not neccessary for clean teeth, and if you like the minty part, you can use mouthwash before and/or after. It's more important to brush lightly (to avoid gum recession) and floss daily.
What??? I hope you are joking about it (or) only a local supply-side issue. I love Crest toothpaste, and I hate Colgate.
I think the disaster might be averted. I just saw a Crest ad on TV. Surely they won't stop making Crest if they are still putting out ads. No?
Seems they're employing the Netflix model for making questionable business decisions... Or not. It doesn't seem like a human made this post. It's a tad too random, man.
Crest is splitting up the company...the toothpaste will be sold by Crest and the tubes will be sold seperately by Tubestr.
I'm going to pop into town and see if they've got any in stock.
Now I just need to know the name of the spokesmodel for Rembrandt Deeply White toothpaste that's been showing on BBC America.
