I just bought toothpaste -- there was a version of Crest on sale, and I'm a little confused by it. It's called Crest Pro-Health Night. I don't know what could possibly make a toothpaste specially formulated for the nighttime, as opposed to the daytime. And, in fact, the side of the box says, "Effective day or night, Crest Pro-Health Night is formulated with a unique nighttime flavor." It's a relief that it's effective day or night, since I wouldn't want to have to buy two different toothpastes depending on the time of day I'm brushing. But what exactly is the flavor of nighttime? As far as I can tell, it's mint. And in fact the name of the flavor, on the box, is "Clean Night Mint." Again, I don't really know what the flavor of nighttime is. Why does this product exist? I understand why there's Tylenol Cold day and night -- one makes you sleepy, one does not. But will this toothpaste make me sleepy? I hope it won't. I don't really understand the marketing reasons behind this product. And maybe no one did, and that's why it was on sale.
Coming soon: Charmin Morning. For those morning kinds of, well, you know.
