The Best Kids’ Toothpastes
Best Bubble Gum
Crest Wild Expressions in Burstin’ Bubblegum
The testers say: Bubble gum is the most popular flavor among kids, and this orange-tinged formula had the biggest pop. “It is like a fruity
gum,” said one seven-year-old girl. Added a five-year-old girl, “It smells pretty.” A 10-year-old boy said, “It tastes like
the gum you get in the store, except it makes your teeth cleaner than that does. Can you ask my dad to buy this?”
Keep in mind: “No one flavor is better than another,” says Hale. “Just make sure that the paste, like this one, doesn’t contain sugar.”
To buy: $3 at drugstores.
