Toddler Toothpaste-phobia!

Can anyone recommend a toothpaste for a highly wilful two year old? She'll play around with her toothbrush forever but hates, hates, hates the Macleans Milk Teeth paste we currently use.
Are there any brands which taste nicer - preferably of chocolate Hobnobs or Smarties??

We use this Sainsbury's own one. I only got it because I can't stand the taste of normal toothpaste either! DS seems to like it. It seems quite difficult to find non-mint toothpaste though. I did find another make (possibly oral B) which was berry flavour or something but I've not been able to find it since!

I got some vile tasting bubble gum flavour one from Boots as my eldest two refuse anything minty. It's disgusting, but they like it. It is decorated with winnie the pooh characters which also helps.
Toms of Maine do a v nice strawberry one, but I can't find it anymore.

We use "Organic children" - it's mandarin flavoured and seems to be a hit with 11 month old

purplepansy, my dcs liked the same one. I felt like vomiting every time I was preparing their toothbrushes.

<<shivvers at the memory of it>>

Weleda do a nice one, I think it's fennely flavoured rather than minty. My DS sucks it off his toothbrush

Thanks all. Bought the 'bubble gum' flavour from Boots today and lawks it is TRULY vile, but they like it.
