I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Even decades after I learned this little ditty I still believe in it. This is what’s currently on the adult shelf in my freezer. There’s a kid’s shelf too so that everyone gets their fair share. The main shopping for my house is at Meijer who helped sponsor this post and giveaway with a gift card to make me happy.

So what did I buy with my g.c.? Well we know it’s ice cream but in addition to that I need something to protect my sensitive teeth. The answer was right there in the health section – Tom’s of Maine.

Out of all the great choices I decided to try their newest product RAPID RELIEF SENSITIVE TOOTHPASTE. It was calling my name although I came close to several others. But the word “sensitive” grabbed my eye as did “flouride-free” and “natural”.

This toothpaste does double duty since it not only gets my teeth clean and whiter but it can be used as a product to help numb your gums if you have a problem. To do that just rub it on any sensitive teeth for 1 minute while massaging away the sensitivity. Then you can get back to your ice cream or cold drinks.

Going to the dental hygienist isn’t a dream come true for most of us but when you yelp when your teeth are being cleaned, that’s when they recommend a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I’ve tried several kinds but what’s unusual about Tom’s Rapid Relief Toothpaste is the groundbreaking formula. It combines the “natural power of arginine* with calcium carbonate* to heal seal pathways to sensitive or exposed nerves“. By using it daily I find it’s better for long-lasting protection.

This is a thick toothpaste so it adheres well to my brush without ending up in the sink the minute I turn on the power. It’s extremely fresh tasting with a minty flavor.

I’ve got my eye on more ice cream flavors at Meijer and I know my mouth won’t object. They carry Blue Bunny ice cream which I haven’t tried yet since the Michigan brand, Hudsonville, has been keeping me busy. I’ve still got some money left on the g.c. they sent so what should I buy?  — Marcia

Meijer is located in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky but the gift card could also be used online. Their prices are great and, like I said, I do most of my grocery shopping there. My little ones love going to Meijer to buy what they call surprises. If you’ve been to Meijer you know it carries everything under the sun and even has a horsey ride for 1 cent! The two year old is addicted to Sandy the horse.
