How Tom’s of Maine and Meijer are helping my ice cream craving (giveaway alert)

toms of maine ice cream

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?Β  — 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.

    I would love to try out the Toms toothpaste and also check out their beauty selection.

  2. Christy Peeples DuBois | 11th Jul 16

    I do have a couple of sensitive teeth and haven’t even thought about toothpaste for sensitive teeth which I used years ago. I would try the Toms rapid relief sensitive toothpaste and see if it helps. I personally do not object to having fluoride in my toothpaste.

  3. Danielle | 11th Jul 16

    I love Meijer! I moved from the mid-west 10+ years ago but always make a Meijer stop when I’m back visiting around the holidays — their health & beauty section is the *best.*

    Marcia, I was at Meijers this afternoon. Actually bought Blue Bunny ice cream too. I have looked at the Toms products and may try one of their mouth washes as my mouth is constantly dry due to a medication.
    Love Meijers and all their fresh produce too.

  10. beautyin | 11th Jul 16

    That’s funny Sandy. We were at Meijer tonight but I stayed in the car while my husband ran in to get fruit. Their cherries right now are so inexpensive and absolutely wonderful.

  14. Lorraine F | 12th Jul 16

    First of all, I would try to figure out where a Meijer is, because I don’t think we have one in the state I live in (NC), and then I would just stock up on all the organic products that I could find there.

  24. gloria patterson | 16th Jul 16

    How would I use this $50 gift card to Meijer if I won?

    I don’t have a Meijer around me BUT my niece does. She is a single mother, with a 16 yr old daughter who has a 19 month old baby.

    As a 67 yr old senior I don’t have a lot extra to help her with but this would be a blessing for her and her family

  33. Kathleen S. | 19th Jul 16

    I like Meijer’s alot! It’s my place to shop also. I would probably buy groceries, because that is usually where I go to buy groceries. Although, maybe I could get away to the housewares department. πŸ™‚
