Is any toothpaste actually nice?

GSK (the bastards) have changed the formulation of the Macleans toothpaste I have used for 30 years and now it is disgusting.
I bought some OralB gel and some Colgate in a purple tube. They were even worse and both had a weird texture.
Sensodyne makes me gag.
I'm making do with Aquafresh, but it's not lovely and I don't like the idea of the colourings in the blue and red stripes.
Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what you are after but Arm and Hammer tastes ok but not very minty more like baking powder. What sort of taste are you looking for?

Its Aquafresh for me. One of the Oral B ones is lovely, but I can never remember the name of it. Fresh mint or something!

I use Morrison's own brand in a green tube. It's just ordinary white toothpaste with a not too strong taste, not expensive either.

I love Pearl drops toothpaste. I wanted to eat it by the tube when I was pregnant (I didn’t though blush).

I like the Lidl herbal one in the green tube, tastes mildly aniseedy.

I like minty, the old Macleans was a strong peppermint taste (now spearmint), and a non-grainy texture.

I'm glad of the recommendations smile

Try and get hold of Mentadent SR (online Chemist Direct sell it). Its the only one my dh likes as its super minty with a low foam.

I think it's Colgate Total Healthy Clean that I use, it's minty but not burny, it's smooth and not grainy and is just plain white normal standard toothpaste.

Can't find the Lidl herbal one anymore. I use the dc's oranurse which is no taste no foam which is a little weird but better than mint.
