Let's cut to the chase. If you take one thing away from this blog post, it's don't buy these. I got over excited and bought two packs, and in the words of my Mum: "they should be paying you to use that stuff."
I'll start by saying that I got my wires crossed when I picked these up. I thought the Dirty Toothy Tabs were a chewable toothpaste and would be handy for on the go, until (5 minutes after paying, typical.) I realised they need to be used with a toothbrush. I thought the point was that they are portable time savers, when in actual fact they're trying to cut down on aluminium tubes. All good, but not what I wanted them for.
I can get past that though, the problem is that they're horrendous! There really is no other way to say it. They smell delicious, spearmint-y and lovely, but I've never known something to taste so unlike how it smells. I've only ever managed to try less than a quarter of one of these tablets, but they're salty, bitter, soapy and nothing like toothpaste. The resounding opinion from all my "willing participants" has been that there's no way they could manage to use one of these little tablets to brush their teeth. Apart from Ed, it seems, whose verdict was that "they just taste like soapy toothpaste?"
I guess everyone's taste buds are different, and one blogger's disgusting soapy mouthful of soap is another's best thing since slice bread. And at £2 it's no big deal if you do buy this and hate it; I'd love to know if anybody out there actually does like these?
