worthy of Wonka

I remember when there was only one type of Skittles. Before there were blue M&Ms. When toothpaste only came in one color.

Of all the radical ideas in flavored advertising, "extreme" and "herbal" should never be used together. I'm a sucker, so I tried the promotional samples of Crest's bizarre line of whitening expressions. Citrus toothpaste is far more difficult to think about than to taste.

Do we really need a google of toothpaste flavors?

The citrus toothpaste needs to go along with the baking soda types. Colgate straight-up please!

What about all the crazy toothbrush shapes? How can they improve a such a simple device every 6 months? Just use floss for Christ's sake!

There are weird things out there, now. I remember when my friend's son (who was 2 yrs old at the time) reallllly liked Slimer High C. It was a specially made version of High C and it was this lurid, toxic waste green. I'd gag whenever I saw him drink it.

What is UP with the food industry???

that's capitalism for you! (I have to defend my major... econ!)

The more choices you have, the more optimal outcome you can arrive at.
