There’s no getting around it – this is freaking awesome.
Seriously, bacon flavored toothpaste?!? It’s tough to compete with that.
Not like there is a lot of competition in the bacon flavored toothpaste department. If I have to review another mint flavored toothpaste I might just up-and-quit. Either way, what could seriously be any better than waking up to bacon toothpaste every morning?
The big question though – does it actually work? Does it actually taste like bacon? Or will we just throw it in a pile with all the other bacon flavored crap we stupidly bought?
We set out to find out in our bacon toothpaste review.
Is It Actually Toothpaste?
So beyond the idea of getting this for your dad as a gag gift, does it actually work? Like, does it actually protect and clean your teeth? All of that stuff?
The biggest issue is that it’s a fluoride free toothpaste. Without that precious fluoride you’ll have a much harder time protecting your teeth against cavities and tooth decay. And, considering you’re looking towards a bacon flavored option, you’ll probably need that protection. Nonetheless, it is an actual toothpaste.
If you get into the habit of using this guy, you might want to supplement it with another toothpaste every so often just to get that stronger protection, but your dentist probably won’t freak out entirely if this is your only toothpaste.
What about the taste though… does it actually taste like bacon? Well, it certainly smells like bacon. Just smelling this stuff alone will probably make your mouth water far more than any other toothpaste, that’s for sure.
The taste…. Eh. It’s distinctly bacon, that’s for sure. Otherwise we’d label it a solid “okay”.
Let’s be real here though, you’re comparing toothpaste to one of the all-time favorite foods in the world. It’s not going to taste exactly like bacon.
But that’s not really the point, is it? The point is the give consumers an option other than mint that’s going to encourage them to brush a bit more frequently and a bit longer.
And in that category, it’s a success.
Seriously, being able to wake up and be excited about the flavor of toothpaste can be a big deal. It’s those little things that we need to appreciate, right? Mornings tend to suck. A lot. Anything that can make mornings a bit less horrible gets a big green check mark in our book.
Bacon Toothpaste Wrap Up
So is it worth it? You’re definitely paying a bit more for this guy than you would standard toothpaste. That’s okay though. What’s awesome about this product is it’s truly innovative and serves a distinct purpose.
We don’t want to get all mushy over a bacon flavored toothpaste, but it’s exciting to see something that breaks the mold a bit in a world of redundant, same-old-same-old products. Nobody seems to be innovating taste and experience in toothpaste these days. To see a toothpaste that pushes the envelope, even if it’s in a playful joking kind of way, is refreshing.
It’s as refreshing as bacon-flavored breath. And there’s plenty of that to go around here!
