I have a toothpaste problem. For years I have used Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. I’ve tried several other natural brands and this is the one that suits me best (usually I use spearmint, on occasion cinnamint, and for a brief period, fennel). When I moved to Canada I wasn’t sure of the availability of Tom’s so I decided to bring a few tubes with me. When my supply was running low, I happened to be on a trip to the good ‘ol US of A and I was planning on checking a bag so I bought five tubes. That was over a year ago.
Now I am out of my toothpaste. One might think this isn’t a big deal. That one would be wrong.
I went to buy more toothpaste. I went to three stores. Sadly, I refuse to pay 3x the price for my delightful Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. That’s right. Tom’s of Maine toothpaste was 3x the price of the more popular brands. So now I am using something that was less expensive that I don’t like as much though it is clearly doing the job.
Thus ends the tale of the toothpaste conundrum.
