Sprout and paste

It’s a matter of taste

One of the distinctive things about Corsodyl toothpaste is the unique flavour profile that comes with the high level of sodium bicarbonate. A bit like a well known savoury spread this flavour can be polarising – for some patients nothing can replace it!

So we thought we would do a quick survey to see how the flavour compared to other unique dietary tastes (and as the festive season kicks off we thought we would start with the humble sprout).

And the results showed that Corsodyl toothpaste tastes better than sprouts, olives and blue cheese (which scored a whopping 60% of the votes for worst flavour)!1

And 83% of people voted that they would rather find Corsodyl toothpaste in their stocking than brussel sprouts.

It is now up to you to take the test and vote this Christmas which you think tastes better Corsodyl Toothpaste or Sprouts?
