Tom's Toothpaste Flavors: My Top 3 Picks

By Angela Tague in Natural Products

The way you start and end your day matter. You likely look forward to an invigorating morning latte or refreshing fruit smoothie after getting out of bed, and you may wind down with a good book or cute cat videos in the evening. So, why can't brushing your teeth be just as enjoyable?

I've been blogging for Tom's of Maine since 2013, and I've written about many topics besides Tom's toothpaste flavors over the years. I've shared my take on a variety of products, from men's deodorant to soap that doesn't irritate my eczema-prone skin. Now, I'm sharing my top three favorite Tom's toothpaste flavors with the hope that they'll inspire your brushing routine. After all, you do it every day!

My Top 3 Tom's Toothpaste Picks

A product has to fit my lifestyle to earn a spot in my bathroom cabinet. The following Tom's toothpaste flavors are gluten-free and vegan, which aligns with my health needs and personal preferences. Also, none of them have been tested on animals, which makes my dog-mom heart happy.

1. Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste

This is my go-to paste when I want a bold mint flavor. Tom's of Maine Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste is the perfect option to freshen your breath before lots of in-person talking at a morning meeting or heading out for date night. You can thank Mentha piperita (peppermint) and sodium bicarbonate for the long-lasting freshness packed into this tube.

As a bonus, this toothpaste features arginine bicarbonate naturally derived from cane sugar to provide sensitivity relief. I like a bowl of oat milk ice cream every so often, but sometimes eating cold treats makes my teeth sore. This toothpaste helps to keep my discomfort to a minimum. Finally, this paste gets a spot in my top three for the fun mantra on the front of the tube: "Set big goals. Go get them." Yes!

2. Wicked Fresh!® Cool Peppermint Toothpaste

If you crave that familiar mint flavor in the morning to help wake up and banish morning breath but don't want it to last for hours, this might be right up your alley. Tom's of Maine Wicked Fresh!® Cool Peppermint Toothpaste offers the best of both worlds—a minty freshness as you brush without the lingering flavor that makes your morning juice taste sour.

I love that this formula fights cavities and has a smooth, creamy texture. There's no artificial coloring, flavors, or added texture to "scrub" my teeth. Instead, calcium carbonate works as a mild abrasive while sodium monofluorophosphate helps to prevent tooth decay. After I brush, I feel happy knowing I've taken good care of my teeth and will get yet another compliment from my dentist, who is always impressed with my oral health.

3. Silly Strawberry™ Children's Toothpaste

Yes, I'm an adult. And sometimes I use Tom's toothpaste flavors made for kids. Why not? Tom's of Maine Silly Strawberry™ Toothpaste has all the cleaning power adults need with the bonus of a sweet, creamy strawberry flavor. I love this paste because it's a perfect fit for my morning routine. I can brush and then go on to sip my morning herbal tea and eat a veggie scramble without a lingering minty flavor overpowering my breakfast.

I also enjoy the smooth texture of this paste. There's no weird grittiness like with some pastes made for kids. Instead, calcium carbonate and hydrated silica work to gently clean my teeth. And for those with little ones at home, you can both squeeze from the same tube of toothpaste—a bonus when it comes to modeling proper oral hygiene to kids!
