Okay I know that this is not food or baking substitution but I was just reminded by someone the quest I took to find Crest Toothpaste. I have grown up on Crest have tried others but always go back to Crest. I like the taste, the texture and the way it cleans my teeth. I was devistated when I could not find the name Crest here like Colgate, Mentadent and even Sensodyne. You see the Oral B brand all over Italy but no Crest. So I was stuck with Colgate.
One day I decided to just get the AZ on sale and I was taken back. This was Crest. Different name but it was Crest. I was jumping for joy doing cart wheels. It only took me 5 years of living here that I did not know Crest was AZ, but now I know and will stay truthful to my favorite toothpaste on the planet Crest/AZ.
