Insidious flavor crystals
Edit: I posted this a few days ago, but accidentally posted it private. So I'm reposting it publicly because of the valuable information it contains.


I'm old enough to remember when Certs first put those "flavor crystals" or whatever they call them into their breath mints.





I didn't really think much about it, but apparently that was a really big thing. It must have made a huge difference in sales over the years, because, have you noticed how flavor crystals are showing up now in all kinds of products? Like...

My shaving gel?

And deodorant?

Coincidence? I'm thinkin', no. I'm just bringing this to your attention because we should all be aware of whatever "marketing" scheme is occurring here.

Please don't let me catch you tasting your deodorant or shaving gel!

Texture--it's the new black.

No, wait...and why are all of my razors growing attatchments? lubrication, vibration...everything but guiderails.

OK, I take back the guiderail part...there's always the HeadBlade...

Had to go look it up. I haven't tried the vibe one yet, but love my Mach 3 so that's next on the try list. Long ago I had a battery vibe one that used, I think, Trac II blades and it worked reeeeally well, so I'm hopeful.

I thought white was the new black?

Re: flavor crystals?

Hmmm, must be "feminine products" that I'm not familiar with. Best not to ask questions.
