Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Aquafresh Wakey Wakey Zones Lemon and Mint flavour toothpaste Confirmed sighting: Aquafresh Wakey Wakey Zones Lemon and Mint flavour toothpaste
Posted: 17:40 Thu 09-Sep-2004. Price: 1. Location: Superdrug. Sub-flavours: Apple; Watermelon. Nutritional unusualness: Lemon toothpaste; not technically a snack.
"Alex" reports: Right, first off it's not a snack. I wouldn't recommend putting it on your pancakes or in your drink. It's Lemon and Mint toothpaste, one of Aquafresh's new "Zone" brands. It's got a whole paragraph about it, but since it sounds awful, I'm not going to reproduce it. Before use, it smells of aniseed. After, it smells like its taste. Its tangy, and you can taste the mint equally along with the "Lemon". You can't really taste Lemon, just a tang. Also, it is average in cleaning. After one (experimental) use, I'd say: stick to mint.

..."Alex" here manages to resist the temptation to, for instance, combine this with crackers - which, thinking about it, could create a new kind of Scooby-Doo Lemon Squeezy Snacks which actually cleaned your teeth as you ate them. Anyway, in other fruity flavourings: "Ymmit" sent in an Ananova story about "very racy" Haribo Maoam wrappers causing complaints in Germany ("The lemon, which from the drawing looks female, is obviously enjoying it" - a spokesman, recently), while here in the UK, Cape Fruit is trying to organise "sweet amnesties" in primary schools, though there's slightly more pun potential in the Processed Vegetable Growers' Association's ongoing "give peas a chance" campaign imaginatively titled "Yes Peas".

Comment: I had to brush my teeth with this toothpaste when i was staying over at a friend's recently and had brought toothbrush but no paste of my own. It is disgusting - tastes like I'd imagine cleaning your teeth with Jiff (cif?) or something similar would. yuck. also, if this is "wakey wakey" toothpaste, are you supposed to buy another tube for nighttime? do they have a sleepy-time toothpaste as part of the same range?

Comment: That's not as silly as it sounds. In Sainsbury's last week I noticed they were selling both "breakfast milk" and "night-time milk". I hunted in vain for "lunch milk" and "elevenses milk", but I'm sure they'll be there somewhere.

Comment: This has remminded me to buy some Zest soap, if they still make it. Yum.

Comment: that's nothing Stu - following our abruptly terminated discussion about smoking and drinking "cancelling each other out", I now have to mix the (stimulatingly fatty) Breakfast Milk with (soothing, melatonin-enriched) Bedtime Milk just to feel "normal" again...

Comment: That all sounds vile. Toothpaste should be toothpaste and confectionary should be confectionary.

As for different milk for different times of the day. Well that's just silly.

Comment: I bought the "Mint fused with refreshing Apple" flavour version of this toothpaste, and I have to say it is absolutely vile. It's like cleaning your teeth in that hideous low-sugar apple squash that I despise so much. My teeth didn't feel massively clean either, although I think this is probably a psychological thing as there's not much aftertaste compared with your standard mint stuff. 76946 6 08
