Close Up and Personal

I just saw the ad for 'chocolate flavored Close Up toothpaste'. What a revolting experience! It must be like burshing your teeth with chocolate syrup. I also discovered that our friends at Etisalat must've also found the idea so revolting, to the point they blocked it's website :)


  • When it comes to flavors, nothing beats the Colgate Herbal.
    Closeup toothpaste flavour...Imagine all those kids gobbling it up. Maybe they should sell it with free doggie bags to throw up.

  • Chocolate flavored toothpaste?..that is dangerous.

    A general question: Is it possible to get very ill from eating too much toothpaste?

  • The site's unblocked now. I think it may have been blocked because the title of the page had the keywords "Mouth to Mouth" on it. And of course those words have the power to corrupt the moral fibre of UAE's society.

  • LOL, It's not toothpaste, it's lubricant

    This is why etisalat blocked it

  • My kids have made me buy every single flavour. Actually the chocolate one tastes kind of minty...I dont mind it....they have moved on to tangerine for now. We also have the hot spicy one...
