Marvis Aquatic Mint Toothpaste


You know you have a problem when you go to a food festival and the only things you buy are grooming products. Amongst all the food and drink was the Man Bits stall, where this Marvis toothpaste and some beer soap caught my eye. Beer's kind of a food, right? And toothpaste totally goes in your mouth and tastes like mint which is also a kind of food, so you know, I basically bought a really weird cocktail. 

Marvis originates from Florence, Italy, and they make toothpaste in a variety of flavours. I went with Aquatic Mint, which is supposed to provide a ""sweet, cool" touch of mint with the cool freshness of the sea". I'm not really sure what they mean by the freshness of the sea, because the predominant flavour I get is melon. In fact, it reminds me of this amazing creation:

Melona ice cream, made by Bingrae, aka sweet nectar of the gods.

I used to loathe the taste of melon in anything other than melons, but with the wisdom of age, so comes the maturing of taste buds. Or something. 

Look, I'm not going to say it's a must-have. It's a freakin' $14 toothpaste and it's not like it does the job three times better than something that costs three times less. But the packaging makes me feel like a fancy lady and I like it, ok?
