Sorry folks, I was just drooling over the new iPod Photo and crying because my third-generation iPod is slowly becoming less and less cool. If I had the money I would get an iPod Photo in a heartbeat, but this gig as the editor of a quasi-review blog doesnâ€™t pay much.
Okay, it doesnâ€™t pay anything at all.
So with the end of October coming up, itâ€™s time to honor what this month is most known for. Thatâ€™s right folks, National Dental Hygiene Month.
Now some of you may email us about the fact that we probably have dishonored National Dental Hygiene Month by giving positive reviews this month to such sugary products as Hot Fudge Sundae Pop-Tarts, Shasta Tiki Punch, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pop-Tarts, and Rockstar Energy Drink. All I have to say to that is, quoting my favorite infomercial star Anthony Robbins, â€œThe past does not equal the future.â€
As editor of the Impulsive Buy, I promise that we will honor National Dental Hygiene Month by not reviewing any more sugary sweet products this month.
So that means in about four days, October will be over and then itâ€™s back to the sugary sweet stuff.
Today we will be reviewing the Crest Whitening Expressions Variety Pack, which contains .85-ounce tubes of the four flavors of the Crest Whitening Expressions family: Cinnamon Rush, Extreme Herbal Mint, Refreshing Vanilla Mint, and Fresh Citrus Breeze.
The ONLY reason why I decided to buy this variety pack was to mix flavors.
Over the past month, itâ€™s been fun trying every flavor combination possible and coming up with new flavor names in the process, like Fresh Herbal Citrus Mint Breeze.
My favorite flavor was Extreme Cinnaminy Minty Rush.
My least favorite flavor was Minty Vanilli Frashlee Cinnasimpson Breeze. (Okay I admit it, I was reaching for a Milli Vanilli/Ashlee Simpson joke and failed horribly.)
One of the big things I didnâ€™t like about the product was the price. Although the Crest variety pack was on sale, it really wasnâ€™t. (Did I blow your mind with that?)
You see, awhile back we reviewed a six-ounce tube of Crest Whitening Expressions Fresh Citrus Breeze toothpaste, which we bought at a regular price of $3.29.
With the Crest variety pack youâ€™re paying $3.49 for only 3.4 ounces of toothpaste, which is a total rip-off.
Although variety packs have been proven to be good for sliced deli meat, potato chips, and condoms, I’m not sure if I can say the same for toothpaste.
Item: Crest Whitening Expressions Variety Pack
Purchase Price: $3.49 (on sale)

Pros: Variety. Opportunity to create new toothpaste flavors.
