To encourage children and adults to brush long enough, often enough and not rinse too much after brushing, a toothpaste that looks, tastes and feels like ice cream is what the dentist ordered. It would have the beneficial qualities of usual toothpaste in addition to the texture and flavor of vanilla ice cream or strawberry sherbet. Parents would be advised to watch out for overuse.

       Baked. Have you tasted any of the current toothpastes for kids?

       J. Newton: Show me one that is "served" cold and tastes just like ice cream.

       Served cold and then rubbed into your teeth? Brrrrrrrrr. Have you never heard of sensitive teeth?

       I agree with [dare99]. Nothing would make me brush my teeth faster and less thorougly than freezing cold toothpaste. Now, warm creamy caramel-fudge on the other hand......

       Maybe some sort of chemical reaction that requires sufficient brushing to obtain the taste. You first put it in your mouth, it tastes like Vegemite. Friction against the teeth creates a reation that changes the taste to strawberry sherbet.
