When I bought replacement heads for my electric toothbrush recently, they came with a free sample of new Oral-B toothpaste.

I rather like the toothpaste – it tastes of root beer. For anyone not old enough to have tasted root beer way back when McDonald’s used to sell it (along with “McDonald’s Cola” – remember that?), it tastes like Germolene smells. Which is surprisingly nice :-)

So, I decided to buy some next time I needed toothpaste. Until I discovered that whilst Waitrose own brand toothpaste is £1 for a tube, the Oral-B stuff is £3.25!

It doesn’t matter how good it tastes if it’s well over 3 times more expensive! Let’s just hope the Waitrose toothpaste tastes OK :-)
