According to the LA Times, close to 600 million pounds of candy is purchased each year in preparation for the 90 percent of US children who go trick-or-treating on Halloween. While parents may not be able to avoid the sugar crashes that inevitably come along with Halloween season, they can take this candy-laden month as an opportunity to talk with their kids about the importance of proper brushing habits. Sugar works with the bacteria in the mouth to decay teeth faster, and the super-sweet month of October doesn’t help the matter.

This a mild mint flavored toothpaste features star breath strips that dissolve inside the mouth for long lasting cool, fresh breath. There is also the 2in1 Flavored Toothpaste.
